“The Five People You Meet in Heaven” by Mitch Albom

albom.jpgA review from reader Loretta Martin:
Being an avid fan of what to expect after death, I read a lot of what people have to say when they’ve supposedly returned from heaven and/or hell. Usually I opt for the so-called “true experiences,” but when the fictional “The Five People You Meet in Heaven” was recommended to me, I decided to give the fictional version a chance.


Never having read “Tuesdays with Morrie” by the same author, I was unfamiliar with his work, but decided I wanted to read his version of who these five people everyone supposedly meets in heaven are. I was curious — were they the same five people everyone meets? Who decides who these five people are? What good comes of meeting them after you’re dead, etc., etc.?
To my pleasant surprise, it was an easy read and when I was finished in less than 24 hours, I found myself wishing I could spend a lot more time with those people you meet in heaven. I guess that makes me a fan of the author and I’m going to have go find myself a copy of “Tuesdays with Morrie.”

    The author is a good storyteller, and “Tuesdays with Morrie” is another fast and easy read; it can, however, be depressing and uplifting at the same time. You know death is the outcome, but you have to admire the strength, humor,and courage of the professor about whom Albom writes.
