Das neue bewegende Buch vom Autor des Weltbestsellers »Dienstags bei Morrie« – eine Hommage an das Leben und die Liebe zweier Menschen.

Chick Benedetto ist in einer Sackgasse angelangt: Die Ehe mit seiner Frau Catherine zerbricht, seine Tochter kehrt sich völlig von ihm ab, und dann verliert er auch noch seinen Job. Immer tiefer gerät er in einen Sumpf der Verzweiflung, bis er eines Tages den Entschluss fasst, seinem verpfuschten Leben ein Ende zu setzen: Er fährt nach Pepperville Beach, die Stadt seiner Kindheit, und stürzt sich von einem alten Wasserturm. Wie durch ein Wunder überlebt er – und traut seinen Augen nicht, als er plötzlich seiner verstorbenen Mutter Posey gegenübersteht. Jahrelang hatten ihn Schuldgefühle gequält, weil er sie in ihrer letzten Stunde allein gelassen hatte, doch nun gewährt das Schicksal den beiden einen Tag – einen Tag, um all das nachzuholen, was sie ein Leben lang versäumt haben. Und Chick begreift zum ersten Mal, was seine Mutter aus Liebe zu ihm alles auf sich genommen hat …

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another good Albom read An easy quick read from Mitch Albom. Having one more day with someone you've lost and loved is something a lot of people would probably love - not that I think it is possible - but if you could make amends or learn a truth ... but only to lose them all over again ?? Best to live a good life with no humungous regrets, but with people being self destructive and proud, so many aren't capable of living with no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A story of a day we all wish we could have Imagine having one more day with someone you have lost. The philosophical novel, "For One More Day," by Mitch Albom tells the story of Charley "Chick" Benetto, a troubled man at a crossroads in his life who finds himself reunited for one more day with his lost mother. The experience comes at just the right time. Plagued by a failed marriage, troubled career, bad finances and alcohol abuse, Charley returns to his childhood home to end his life. Expecting to walk into a cold and empty abandoned house, he finds the warm home of his childhood, well kept by his mother, who tells him she has been waiting and needs to talk. Together they spend one day together reflecting on key events in Charley's life. The experience helps him gain perspective on his identity, his relationship with both of his parents, his regrets and key events made possible by only a mother's love. Reminded of the love of his mother, Charley is able to gain the strength needed to stand up to life's challenges. And in reading this book, the reader can do the same thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read This book was very unique in style. I haven't quite read a book like it. It is a fantastic light read, with only being 195 Pages. The Storyline keeps you very interested. I find that a person could really relate to this book, It touches on subjects that some of us have felt before, or will feel in our life. This was my first book by Mitch Albom, and after reading this book i can say that i will be picking up other books by him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart Warming Story For One More Day is a story told through Chick Benetto. His life is a mess, he's an alcoholic, wasn't invited to his own daughter's wedding, divorced, and just been fired from his job. So he decides to pack up and travel back to his old empty family home to commit suicide. But on the way there, he gets into an accident and falls into some sort of unconcious dream. Where he returns to his old house and his mother, who is supposed to be dead is welcoming him at the door. Chick Benetto never had the best relationship with his Mom and he gets one more day to understand his mother and appreciate all that she did. Posey, Chick's mother is my favourite character in the book. She loved her family, provided good morals, worked two jobs, and when things were going bad she still managed to put a smile on her face. The story was inspirational. It will really make you appreciate your mother after reading it. It was sad because of all the unfortunate events that happenened to Chick and his mother. This story was very captivating because you were never quite sure where the story was going to take you. Although this was a great book, it was very similar to The Five People You Meet in Heaven. So it was nothing original or new once you have read the other book. Mitch Albom makes the book flow nicely and it's interesting to see how all the elements in the story are connected in someway. It's also good how Mitch Albom goes back in time, and tells stories about Chick as a kid and why his life is the way it is. He's very wise in his writing. It's a great book and if you liked The Five People You Meet in Heaven you're surely like this one even more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tugging at your Heart Strings. I normally don't indulge fiction novels but this one captured my heart. It's the type of novel that everyone can relate to in some way or another. The main character Chick has two options but only one choice. It's the type of novel that anyone can relate to and reminisce about. Picture having two choices, but you can only chose one..and in the end, you find out that the choice you made was wrong. It is extremely heartfelt, heartbreaking and compassion. I recommend this book to everyone that enjoys a touching novel. This sure brought tears to my eyes. Congrats to Mitch Albom for being the only novelist to date to make me cry :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An emotional tribute to family bonds, love and forgiveness I was totally absorbed by For One More Day by Mitch Albom, and taken back to a time when I, too, was young and everything seemed innocent, confusing and not always explainable. I highly recommend this read, but be prepared--you'll need a box of Kleenex at your side! Charles `Chick' Benetto has reached the end of his rope, so to speak. He is divorced and has a daughter who won't invite him to her wedding, a father who walked out on the family years ago and a mother who is dead. Chick is a washout as a baseball player and finds solace in one thing--alcohol. Feeling that he has nothing left to live for, nothing to hold onto, he plots his suicide and returns to his family home where he finds it not as empty as it should be. Through his mother's spirit, Chick learns that things weren't always as they seemed. He asks questions about his life, about his father, and is surprised by some of the answers. Some of the conversations are bittersweet and sad, while others will make you laugh. A cross between A Christmas Carol and Ghost, this is a beautifully wrought story that delves into the human psyche and into our yearning to go back and change things...if we had just one more day. For everyone who always wanted to go back in time, take back nasty words or find a sense of understanding, For One More Day is an emotional tribute to family bonds, love and forgiveness. One of Mitch Albom's finest works! This novel is that one last chance to see things as they were...and to make things right. Don't we all wish we had that? ~ Cheryl Kaye Tardif, author of Whale Song

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary! Once again, Albom has proved himself a great author with exceptional ideas and insights. For One More Day opens your eyes to just how important certain people are to you, even if you may not realize it until its too late. While FOMD is a quick read, it is easy to get lost in the story and appreciate every word Albom has written.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Quick, Good Read. What I like about Mitch Albom is that he takes experiences that have happned to him, and turns them into meaningful fiction that are filled with clear messages. "For One More Day" is a touching story about a man who has had rough times and decides to take his life. However, in that place between life and death he meets up with his mother who died years earlier. Through the novel they spend a day together remembering moments from their time together, visiting friends who are near death and revealing secrets wished were told when alive. This is a great, quick read that has many touching moments. If you liked "Tuesdays with Morrie" and/or "The Five People You Meet In Heaven", then pick this up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Enjoyable Read I remember I picked up this book after reading "5 People you meet in Heaven" and putting it down thinking "eech--suicide, depressing, sad-nope not for me" but about 1 month later I bought it and really, really enjoyed it. Actually, I liked it better than "Tuesdays with Morrie". Within the first few pages I couldn't put it down and I finished it within 4 days. For anyone who has been touched by suicide and even if they haven't, it's a great book. Far from being sad, it was quite uplifting--explaining why we would feel the way we feel and why parents would do what they did. I really enjoyed this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST READ An easy read ... but a must read. This book touched my heart and helped me through a difficult time of loosing my mom. Mitch is able to connect with his readers in a way that words cannot describe. A MUST READ!
