THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN is a wonderfully moving fable that addresses the meaning of life, and life after death, in the poignant way that made TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE such an astonishing book. The novel's protagonist is an elderly amusement park maintenance worker named Eddie who, while operating a ride called the 'Free Fall', dies while trying to save a young girl who gets in the way of a falling cart that hurtles to earth. Eddie goes to heaven, where he meets five people who were unexpectedly instrumental in some way in his life. While each guide takes him through heaven, Eddie learns a little bit more about what his time on earth meant, what he was supposed to have learned, and what his true purpose on earth was. Throughout there are dramatic flashbacks where we see scenes from his troubled childhood, his years in the army in the Philippines jungle, and with his first and only love, his wife Marguerite. THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN is the perfect book to follow TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE. Its compellingly affecting themes and lyrical writing will fascinate Mitch Albom's huge readership.

2.0 Just Finished Reactions: The Five People You Meet in Heaven
A nice concept. The book is pretty self explained by the title. I read this in a high school religion class and we were told to write a little essay based on this books style and our own lives.I do not think I would like this book outside of that setting. But good for those who like an uplifting exp...

4.5 The Five People You Meet in Heaven
When I was 13 I watched the film adaptation with my parents and was heavenly shocked by the story. I had always heard that heaven was a wonderful place, and this version seemed to be really confrontational. Showing you everything you lost and everyone's trouble you caused. But it made me want to rea...
