DescriptionTHE 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.

Reviews for The Five People You Meet in Heaven
When I started, I could not stop reading. :) by Bereth Sofie Kozma
altered my perception...
I am not usually one to question what happens to us after we die, in fact I try my best to avoid thinking about it. But when I got my hands on this novel, I could avoid it no longer! This story truly inspired me to start thinking about heaven and the afterlife in a positive sense, which altered my perception of death.
The interconnectedness of Eddie's meetings with the people were very captivating, and made me start thinking who I'd meet there when I eventually die. by Renee Hennessy
It will make you think and then think a little more.
A wonderfully written book which delves into the question of what happens after you die.
Tearful yet beautiful, I would highly highly recommend this wonderful book to anyone. by nichola
