Book Review: The Five People You Meet In Heaven

I loved this book! It wasn’t reflected in how long it took me to finish it, but that was no indicator to how much I enjoyed it. The author, Mitch Albom, paints a beautiful picture of what heaven may be for all of us. I found the idea to be so interesting. You don’t pick the five people you meet, they are there for you, waiting for a reason. Some you may know, some maybe knew you through a result of your actions, some lives you may never know you touched until then. It really took me through a range of emotions. The main character, Eddie, is a very “average” man by society standards. But when you meet his five people in heaven, you are exposed to the vast richness he had in his life. Some good and some ugly, he had really lived through life’s experiences. And it is a comforting thought – in the end, we get to come full circle with the most meaningful moments and end with the most important person. I love this book, I will read it again someday. Each moment in our lives matters. Each decision has a reaction and sets in motion a chain of events. Every choice will impact your life. Every person is sacred.
