The Five People You Meet in Heaven Review
This is an inspirational book that touches the hearts of those who read it. It was almost impossible for me to put down and always left the me eager to find out what was going to happen next. This touching story can relate to everyone’s life, and really gets the reader thinking about how connected everyone in the world truly is.

The Five people you meet in heaven
I began reading this book as a school assignment and fell in love with it. I didn't want to stop reading. As a teenager who isn't really into reading this book is amazing. I love the story and the characters and the all around meaning of it. Good job Mitch I hope you continue to write such amazing books.

well done!
I read this book for a school assignment and I honestly did not want to put it down. Mitch Albom's portrayal of life after death was really well done. His writing styles made me want more and more...

how the bookchanged my thinking on life
After reading this book, I thought of life differently. Mainly how we impact peoples lives we don't even know and how they impact ours. The whole question of "Why am I here?" was very well answered. In my religion class we were studying the same thing of "why are we here?". the theological answer and reasoning is a lot more complex, but this book explains it very well in easy terms. It also made me wonder if we do meet five people in heaven, who will my five be and who will meet me.

Such a creative, awesome book ...I love it ...

Love it
I just start reading the book, it is fantastic.
I was force to read this book because it was a mandatory. But the line 'every ending is a new beginning' captured my attention. A wonderful book to read!

the five people you meet in heaven
Five People You Meet in Heaven enables us to view life beyond it, help us to realize that all happenings in life have lessons to be learned. Mitch Albom systematically enumerates all the important lessons one must learn to be able to float in the sky without worrying about pain, suffering and all that. The thought that once we live our life in a way that we thought is the best is just the same when you live your life at worse. Each experience brings out something for us to grow we just don’t know it at that time and every life has a purpose, sometimes you just need help finding it.

Mitch Albom made a good perspective of what is heaven.

I love this book!
This was undoubtedly the best book I have ever read and it gave me a new perspective on heaven but the only thing I wish would have happened is that he had met God but I do hope there is a sequel and that it is the girl and the last person that she meets is Eddie and that it is even better that the last and many to come! I LOVE THIS BOOK AND AM ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED AND I HOPE THAT EVERY ONE READS THIS BOOK! Even if you don't like to read this book is so good that it should only take you two hours tops to read it so please do it will give you a new perspective on everything!
