I haven't read any other books by Mitch Albom, but after reading Five People I want to!
The Five People You Meet in Heaven is about an 83 year old man(Eddie) who dies on his birthday, in an attempt to save a little girl. He has not had the easiest life around, so when he finds himself in Heaven, he thinks it will be paradise for eternity.
But what he finds is much different-it is explained to him that he will meet with five people from his life, whether strangers or close friends and family, who will explain to him his existence on earth.
This book made me cry-and that's a high compliment to any book I've read. There is mild cursing, but not too strong. And the story far outweighs it anyway-and you barely even notice.
I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a very deep, heartrending read. It's a slim book and a fast read-I was done with it after three class periods.
It's a great book, really. And Mitch Albom is a very talented author.
