Sookie Hmm...Well, I loved this book. I did read it for a class, so I had a bit more help on understanding the themes than I would have if I'd have picked it up on my own. But I overall found it very enjoyable as well as thought provoking....


Varun Kumar I loved reading this book after reading this I felt very much different feeling toward my loved ones and cared for them more......


Nicole Pinzon It's ideals and concepts were a comforting hypothesis of the event in the afterlife and the quotes and ideas are completely inspirational to me. It truly is one of my favorite books of all time and I hope if you read it again you will see the simple beauty it has.


Marlyanne Great Book. Makes you think about the afterlife in a whole new way and what is important while you are still living.


Annie i think having to read this book attentitively makes it all the more better? haha. it's an amazing book. i love mitch albom. :]


Clara  Baker Baldwin Read this in book group years ago. It didn't do a thing for me, but others in the group really liked it.


message 8: by Lou (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lou I read this book years ago and I was moved by the meaning of the book. I also have to tell you that after thinking about it for a short time, I wondered where was Jesus? The book was entertaining and thought provoking. Yet when we all die I believe that the Bible states there will be judgement. So remember all it's fiction and it's great to see enjoyment in a book but if you need the truth ...you need the Word!


message 9: by Lou (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lou Patti.. yes I do like the life lessons aspect of the book... and yes very enjoyable read. and yes again to our past reflections.... but if we are looking for true judgement then you must meet the Creator in person and then be shipped off to your so called answer to those he affected during his lifetime. A great read and great fiction.... yet the true judgement will be far more humbling to all.


Yulmia Efni Mitch's books always remind me to lead my life meaningfully ^^

Sally I liked this book and the message it conveys. So many times people ask about the meaning of life and what life is like in the after life. This book, I would say, does a good job, to put peoples mind at ease. Regarding the death. Death I feel, is not always spoken about in our society and its the fear that many people have of leaving this life that they know. I also liked how the movie was on par with the book, chapter by chapter.


Rachael i really enjoyed this book! I read this within in a few months of reading "The Lovely Bones" and found them both to be very thought provoking, both have a different perspective of Heaven and what it might be like (If i am to beleive it exists at all). So What happens afterwards? "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" really opened my eyes to the fact that it doesnt matter what happens after as long as now counts.


Heather I bought this book for my book club and thoroughly enjoyed it. Made me think of the five people I would want to meet and people who had affected my life. The book described a heaven that I could believe in however I do know it is a novel. Would like to read Tuesdays with Morrie when I get a chance.


Nattaporn Telling story with easy language but get me all the way deeper inside!
Such a great book to read for refreshing our life.


Grant Trevarthen Something to look forward to.


Celestine This book is a must read for those inquiring minds regarding the afterlife. I could hardly put this book down. I bought a new kindle ereader and it was one of the first books that I purchased on it. I loved it. Now I want to see the movie.


Licha Heather, don't forget that part of the five people you meet in heaven are also people you don't remember meeting on Earth but inadvertently affected their lives too. Mitch Albom books are great because they touch our heart and make us see how the choices in our lives affect those around us and the way our lives can play out based on the choices we make. I think they also make us realize that we are important to others even when we think we aren't.


Shivani I really liked the book inspiring one ...
after reading this brought one more mitch album book tuesday with morrie that was also nice a concept ..


Licha Shivani, I haven't read Tuesdays with Morrie but heard that was a great book. You should also get For One More day. That was another great Albom book and as a mom it touched my heart deeply.


Megan I cried during both book and movie :( But they were hopeful tears.

I know what you mean, it was so heartwarming it brought me to tears.


message 24: by Judy (new) - rated it 5 stars

Judy I am so glad to hear someone else loved this book. I is one of my all time favorites and I am very comforted by it. I tend to regret things I've done and at times, feel a vitim to life. This book reminds me that God has greater purposes and can redeem things I think are failures.


message 25: by Kris (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kris Newman I did a review of Albom's books on ninetyandnine.com several years ago. Albom is very deep - but not always factual. I don't think his intention is to change theology, but to make readers consider how they presently live and what they might change. His experiences detailed in tuesdays with Morrie are revelatory and changed the way he views relationships. That is the point of his writing. To give readers a different view so they might reassess how they live.

Albom is a master writer. This is an incredible read.

Math Teacher I remember reading this book a couple of years ago, when I was a junior in college. But until now, I can still vividly recall how I felt while turning every page. I can't really point out what I found so special with this book as it was plainly written, told as simple as virtually possible. For some weird reason though, it was able to take hold of something in me that lead me to constantly examine the kind of life I was living at that time. Until now, before I go to sleep, there would be times when I would just ask myself: "If I were to die, which Five People would I meet?" This book has really created so much impact on my view of taking chances and how in one way or another, I affect other people's lives. Needless to say, this shall forever remain as one of my personal favorites.

Thanks. I'm glad you liked my comment. I believe this book is really created for that purpose. :)

I couldn't agree with you more. I should promote it more to my friends as I don't beleive the "readers" in my group of friends have ever read it. Such a gem of a book.

It would really be very nice if you'd get to share this books to your friends. It was also through a friend that I learned of this book and I am extremely happy that he introduced me to Mitch Albom's works. Good luck on that and I hope they would also enjoy it the way we had.

Wow. The last line from your comment is just wonderful. Glad that you also enjoyed the book like the others here.


David Cassidy This is a beautiful book about life. It makes one realize that, while we may muddle through out day-to-day problems and feel like no one is noticing, we do make a difference to others. Whether we know it at the time is often a mystery--we are often unsung heroes. On the flip side, when we throw up our hands and go "Why me?" every so often, it's comforting to think that at the end, we'll find out the answers to that question. It's a great story about hope. I love this book and the lessons it shares.
