For One More Day is the story of a man who gets the chance to spend one more day with his mother, who died 8 years earlier.
I was really undecided about how to rate this book. On the one hand it was a quick, easy read. I finished it in more or less one sitting, so it must have been a page turner.
On the other hand I knew exactly what was going to happen from the beginning, and the book felt more like one long lecture on appreciating your mother, than a novel. It was just too sentimental, with no depth or real plot.
Everyone else seems to love this book, so I won’t tell you not to give it a go. It’s short enough for you to give it a try and make up your own mind. I won’t be rushing out to read any of his other books though.
