Well, first of all, i never thought a book can teach me so much. But my opinion changes the time I finished this book.

This story is basically about an old man called Eddie and his afterlife. After his death, he got to someplace where he's supposed to meet 5 people related to him. This is where the story begins.
Every person he met has a special relation with Eddie - even though sometimes he didn't know that person. Each person has a different lesson to teach - to Eddie and of course to the reader as well.
This book teach me so much that I want to read this book over and over until I can memorize all the things said in it.


Recommended for: everyone! :)
i love this book!

“This is the greatest gift God can give you: to understand what happened in your life. To have it explained. It is the peace you have been searching for.”

Mitch Albom
“People say they 'find' love, as if it were an object hidden by a rock. But love takes many forms, and it is never the same for any man and woman. What people find then is a certain love. And [he] found a certain love with [her], a grateful love, a deep but quiet love, one that he knew, above all else, was irreplaceable.”

“War could bond men like a magnet, but like a magnet it could repel them, too. The things they saw, the things they did. Sometimes they just wanted to forget.”

“That's because no one is born with anger. And when we die, the soul is freed from it. But now, here, in order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did, and why you no longer feel it.”
