The most important element is the dialogue. Everything else isn't as important because it doesn't stand out. The majority of this book takes place in Morrie's house, so nothing unorthodox happens. The dialogue determines the mood, if Morrie and Mitch Albom are talking about death or Morrie's crippling disease the mood will be sad. Some of the events also contribute to the mood-but not as much as the dialogue aspect of the book. Some events that depict Morrie's loss of independence is shown in different events; when he has other people position his head for him because he is too weak.
