Rated of 5

I liked the titled and it caught my attention. The theme of the book, like its title, is commendable. The author has put genuine efforts in sending a message, albeit differently, which earns him points. Considering that so many people have been able to relate to it (saw the reviews), the author has been largely successful.
Unfortunately, the book is full of cliches - the view of heaven or what each person has to say (although the five people he chose were a surprise). This is the first book by Mitch I read, and even though he has tried to keep the writing simple and "for the masses", I am a little disappointed by his choice of words in many passages. Considering the applaud that this book has received, I am not very impressed. It could have been a much better book, if the author could have woven a much tighter story. The passages get dull at many places and the plot becomes hackneyed.
Overall, a mediocre read. But the idea (that every person in this world has a meaning for his/her existence) is refreshing.
