I know that there are already quite a view reviews about 'the five people you meet in heaven' but I really have to share my love for this book and my respect for the writer with you. Mitch Albom manages to create a story full of heart, passion, love and hope. Thinking about it's more about hope than anything else. The characters and their stories are believable - who of us doesn't sometimes feel that work is just day after day after day the same, or that we can't relate enough with our parents and who hasn't lost something/someone he loved? The meaning of our own life is the one thing we'll never fully understand - how great would it be if you could ... Read the complete review

“The Five People You Meet in Heaven” by Mitch Alborn is certainly one of the world’s best sellers in recent times, having sold over 5 million copies worldwide since its release in 2003; a mere 18 months ago. Book lovers will of course also attribute the book “Tuesday’s with Morrie” to the same author, which is another inspirational tale, this time of the relationsip between the young author and his college tutor. The book “Five People You Meet in Heaven” is a fictional account of a war Veteran by the name of Eddie who never quite realises his life’s dream and spends most of his working life around a holiday fairground - at Ruby Pier - fixing rides; ...

I first saw this book in WH Smith a few months before Christmas. This sounded something a bit different, and not altogether a ‘happy’ book on first inspection with the main character dying right at the start! At just over 200 pages with a RRP of £6.99 I wasn’t going to make a purchase unless I could find it cheaper (hey I'm a skinflint - at least I admit it!). That didn’t happen, so I put it on my birthday list (which is a long time in coming because it’s December!). And one of my friends came up trumps - I couldn’t wait to start this! * What’s it all about, Mack80? * Eddie is the Maintenance Man at Ruby Pier. He’s worked there all his life. ...

On the day of his 83rd birthday, Eddie, a man who has lead a simple life, is killed when he rushes to save a little girl from a broken fair ground ride. When he arrives in heaven, he is greeted - one by one - by five people who have changed his life in some way over the years. Some are people he knows, others are strangers who just changed his path. Each has an explanation for him as to why he was put on earth and also a lesson for him so that he can accept his life as a good one. Throughout it all, Eddie wants to find out - did he save the little girl? I quite recently read "The Shack" by William P. Young and it would be difficult not to ... Read the complete review

This book is so inpiring, it is about an old man that dies wondering if his life is really worthwhile, he has worked in a fairground for so many years that he wondered if there was any point to this life. When Eddie arrives in Heaven he meets 5 people that explain his life to him. They may not have been people that were dirrectly in his life but each one changed his path forever. There is a part of Eddie in all of us, he talks about his regrets, things he wishes he had and had not done. When we first meet Eddie, he is about to die. The end is just another beginning, however, and we learn the story of Eddie's life as the novel progresses. Heaven is not what he ... Read the complete review
