Great Book
This book is excellent. I am in 9th grade and i have to read it for school. I would recommend this book to anybody.

This book shows that people really do have a meaning for life and that everyone should love life. Live life to the fullest.

Proud to be PINOY
The book is AWESOME. definitely a must-read book. Im a big fan of Tuesday with Morrie, so when i saw 5 people you meet in heaven, i immediately grabbed it from the shelves of the bookstore. I'm so into it, that i i finished the half of the book within 1 hour, then i was so surprised to find out that one of the settings is here in my country, PHILIPPINES. And it even has a Tagalog words in it, though it's grammatically wrong in our language. STILL, I'm proud to be PINOY! It's where the war happened. It definitely changed my image of HEAVEN, and it's definitely a better afterlife, so I can reflect on my pastlife and understand "WHY AM I EVEN HERE???"

Who would you want your 5 people to be?
I'm not the type of person who reads books, but my teacher reccommended i read it, so I did. And I have to say, it was THE best book I've ever read. really sweet and thought provoking. I think I thought for a week who my 5 people would be. I still can't decide.

This was a have to read book because it was our book club selection for the month of January, so I purchased the book and put it in my bedroom bookcase where it sat for months. With one week to go before the discussion, I thought I had better read that book.
I started it on Sunday night and finished it a couple of hours later. Wow, what insight, what imagination. This isn't the heaven that I hope for but it's a heaven to make you think. I have sat and pondered who would be my 5 people and of course cannot even think of who they might be.
This is well worth your read....its a fast read but I found myself the next day going over some of the chapters to better understand all its meaning.
Tonight is our discussion group and I am excited to hear what is said.

very good and heartfelt book

What an Outstanding book! This book was better than Tuesdays with Morrie!!! If I were Micth Albom I'd be proud!

What an amazing book! It really makes you think about who your five people might be and what impact you've had on others. A recommended read.
