5 people u meet in heaven was awesome !

This book made me hope its really like this when we die ! I read it in 3 days. ! If i had a day off from work it would have been 1 day .everyone should give this book a try. My mother in law told me about it and i had to call her to talk about it with her.

Food for thought

This was more than a light read for me. Good for those of us who question our contribution to life in general, it is thought-provoking. I am buying this copy for our (54) and I think he will find it meaningful as well.

Great quick read!!

Not my style but it was a cute story

I don’t usually go for these types of books but this was quite a cute story. I Feel like this author is very creative and has a very active imagination to come up with such an engaging plot. At the end I gave this book away to a friend of mine and I didn’t want to keep it because it was in my type a story but she found that it was a very good as well so I highly recommend if you just want something light to read and it’s very cute t at the end I gave this book away to a friend of mine and I didn’t want to keep it because it was in my type a story but she found that it was very good as well so I highly recommend if you just want something light to read and it’s very cute too.

Good Book

I bought this book for a friend that is going to study Spanish in College and she wanted something to help her getting speaking spanish again and since I don't know Spanish I got her one of her favorite books but in Spanish.

El libro mas hermoso que he leido..

Este libro es la respuesta a mil preguntas sobre la vida despues de la vida. Tuve la dicha de encontrar este libro en un momento dificil de mi vida, al perder a alguien muy querido y mi cabeza llenarse de mil preguntas y dudas. Lo lei en unas 4 horas y poco a poco fui sintiendo una paz y una conformidad inexplicables. Si quieres entender...debes leerlo. La respuesta de tu vida.....esta en Cielo!

Another life-defining book from Mitch Albom

To tell the truth, after reading Tuesdays with Morrie from Mitch Albom, I did have high expectations for this follow-up. And I must say that my expectations were more than surpassed by another winner from him.The interweaving of Eddie "Maintenance"'s various aspects of life from his childhood, teenage years, courtship, military service, marriage, middle age to old age and finally the beginning of his journey through heaven was beautifully and intricately spun in this short tale.The poetic descriptions of the various "steps" in heaven that Eddie traversed through in search for inner peace before his final resting destination and the 5 lessons he had to learnt brought to mind the eternal existentialistic questions of why we are here and what our life purpose is, in a quiet and non-intrusive manner. So much so that we can be prompted to examine our own lives more sympathetically.The message I got from Mitch Albom at the end was that Eddie could have been anyone of us and that we do not need to wait for our turn to meet our five people in heaven to recognise that whatever we are doing now has meaning and has purpose in wonderful and beautiful ways and that we should never allow ourselves to belittle our lives. Not quite the tearjerker as Tuesdays but Five People has certainly touched my heart and a few others in more ways than one. I hope that you will allow this beautiful book to touch yours too.Kudos to Mitch Albom and a big thank you to his uncle Eddie for being the source of inspiration for this would-be classic.God bless

A delightful, moving fable.

Mitch Albom as taken the experiences of a man's seemingly useless life, and unwrapped a story that is a gift to each of us.His use of the language, and ability to evoke real emotions from his character AND his reader at the same time is truly amazing.I found this to be a fairly quick read, and read it in one 4 hour sitting. The Author tugs at hearstrings, provokes thought and smiles as the main character sometimes fumbles his way through a timeless heaven, discovering that in the end, his life had more meaning than he could ever imagine.Mitch Albom is going to solidify his status as a national treasure with this book.Give this book to everyone on your Christmas list!

Aside from the obvious self-help category, books make life better in so many ways that it's hard to imagine existing without them...so we won'! Thankfully, we don't have to. Here are just some of the ways that reading books is as essential as, oh, breathing.
