Parody. A man dies and on his way to heaven he gets to meet up with (and get even with) the 5 worst jerks in his life. He is surprised to find he has also been flagged as a jerk by his ex-wife. It's a quick kind of fun read.

Despite of Zerdetto effort to make this story ultimately funny. I found it bland, aside of its title if it was compared to the original title (which was also the main reason why I bought this book in the first place).
The first three jerks were the most interesting. A great parody on The Five People You Meet In Heaven. It makes me wonder who I would pick and who would pick me.

This book is best reading after the Mitch Albom book of which it is a parody. Remember that it is a parody and then you will get a kick out of it.
Easy book to read. Overall enjoy it but not so much of 5 stars of "hilarity" as expected.
