Review: Finding Chika: A Little Girl, an Earthquake, and the Making of a Family by Mitch Albom

5 out of 5 stars

There was a time when I thought Mitch Albom was losing his magic touch because it seemed like after reading Tuesdays with Morrie, every single book he released next seemed to pale in comparison until Finding Chika and I’m so glad I decided to pick this up.

I doubt it’s easy to write about your own philanthropy but then again Mr.Albom wasn’t really writing about his good deeds. He was writing about Chika and I could only imagine the courage and strength it took to write it. I’ve been bawling out since I started the book and I didn’t even know Chika.

But it makes perfect sense that Mr. Mitch wrote about another book 20 years after he wrote Tuesdays with Morrie where he detailed the lessons he learned about life from his former professor, Morrie. Finding Chika is written in perfect juxtaposition to the former as Mr. Mitch once again learns valuable life lessons but this time from a precious little girl.

And just like with my experience with Tuesdays with Morrie, I savored every word from this book. Though devastatingly sad, it is undeniably inspiring and life affirming. I am reminded of my deep admiration of the author as well. Kudos to Mr. Mitch and Ms. Janine, his wife. Thank you for reminding us that there are still many good people left in the world.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
