Comparison of "Tuesdays With Morrie" and "A Child Called It."

    Comparing "Tuesdays With Morrie" and "A Child Called It" first seemed like a hard challenge to me. One is about the loving relationship between a professor and his student, while the other is a story of abuse between a mother and her son. The stories seem to be about complete opposites. However, after more thought I realized that the books have one big similarity. Both discuss the stories of how one person made a lifetime's impact on the main characters life.
    Mitch Albom wrote in his book about how Morrie, his old college professor taught him how to live life to the fullest and never forget what matters the most, family and love. Dave Peltzer describes in his story, how is mother abused him as a child and it left him scarred for life. In a way, his story teaches the readers the same concept. Family and love comes first in life, and although it is hard to remember sometimes, one cannot take their life for granted. Peltzer demonstrates his life and how he learned to live by what his mother did not do, and Albom describes how he learned to live his life by what his professor did do.
