The Five People you meet in Heaven – Review

on May 30, 2011

I LOVED this book. Out of Mitch Albom’s three books that I have read ‘Tuesday’s with Morrie’ and ‘For One More Day’ this is by far my favourite!

All endings are beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time…’

This is a book about death. This is a book about Eddie’s death and Eddie’s life. And the five people that he meets in Heaven. These five people explain Eddie’s life to him and why certain things occured or why they did not.

It is a beautiful book. It offers solace and hope without being cheesy. It offers a simple explanation and a different way of looking at death. It had me in tears twice with joy and with sadness, both emotions in one heart, the tears had to leak out somewhere!

It also made me think about my life and about my choices. About what we consider to be set in stone for one reason or another. It broke through my defences, this little book.

I enjoyed it so much, I think everyone should read it. From hardened cynic to the most spiritually aware person.

  1. I also loved the book – it has been so many years, maybe I must read it again.

    I started reading the book on Tuesday and finished it on Wednesday, I loved it.

    It really makes you think about everything that you do and everyone you have met or are going to meet.
