Forte or Faux Pas?

 If being straightforward could be musical, then Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom would be a crescendo. Life lessons are taught by Death or someone at Death’s doorstep, a man suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease. At times, the book’s poignant forte, its straightforwardness, can be corny, but there is something to it. From the get go, we know that Morrie Schwartz, the protagonist will die, but we’re still right there with him the whole way.
