Book Review: “The five people you meet in heaven”, by Mitch Albom.

“The five people you meet in heaven”, by Mitch Albom, is a book about an 83 year old man, who is an owner and operator of an amusement park. He passed away trying to save a little girl falling from one of his rides, and woke up in the afterlife.

In his earthly life he took over ownership of the park, when his Dad passed. He feels like his life is meaningless, and stagnate. Stuck in the day-to-day routine of going to work. He beloved wife passed away years ago of brain cancer, and a he is a injured war veteran. Since his wife passed away, he felt like life was meaningless. He thinks his life had no impact but in the afterlife he learned that it surely did.

This book encompasses meaning in life, and how everything we do impacts the life’s of others, even the little things.  How certain people die, instead of us. The real reason why people have hurt us, and their true stories. I recommend it if you feel stuck, and are looking the meaning in your life. This book greatly explains how we all have purpose in our life. It is very interesting, because he was in the war, stationed in the Philippines.  I recommend it. It was a great read.

  1. I started reading this years ago and never finished. I’m pretty sure I still have it on my bookshelf. I need to reread it and finish it this time! Great review!

  2. I like Mitch Albom’s way of writing. He always touches your core. This book made me realize that all people whom we have in contact with make a litte or big impact in our lives, all of them have impact.

    My favorite of Mitch Albom’s is “For One More Day”.
