    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 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 follow up to TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE. Its compellingly affecting themes and lyrical telling will fascinate Mitch Albom's huge readership.

    Review quote
    Albom has done it again... FIVE PEOPLE is a powerful book, powerful enough to make one's inner snob feel a little uncomfortable...Albom has touched the lives of a lot of people he never even knew. If there is a heaven, he can expect to have around 5.7 million people waiting for him there Time [Eddie] learns not only about his life but also about what his time on earth meant. It is simple, unaffected and written with great feeling Publishing News Simply told, sentimental and profoundly true, this is a contemporary American fable that will be cherished by a vast readership ... this slim tale, like Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, reminds us of what really matters here of earth, of what our lives are given to us for Publishers Weekly Mitch Albom lifts us to a new level ... You'll find here echoes of the classics - The Odyssey for one - and that puts Albom's book in the best of company Frank McCourt, author of ANGELA'S ASHES
