from wat i read i thought the book was AWESUME, but i thought it was more like pergatory then heaven, because it seemed like it was preparing him for heaven, and after he meets his five people, then he'll proble have to wait for his persen, then he gets to go to heaven. But the bodk was excillent. i plan to suggest it to people......

This book makes you think....isn't that what good literature does. There are some tear jerking moments (I needed a tissue or 2). You realize that every person's life has meaning and that you can affect more people than you realize. An excellent read...I recommend to all.

this book is the best. thats all i need to say.

I thought it was a very inspirational book that says "hey you know what you may not think that you are all that important but you have a meaning." and makes you wonder... what is my purpose for life on this earth? never in a million years did i imagine how good it would be until i actually read it...i reacommend it to ALL!!!!xoxoxo

Simply wonderful! It really got me thinking about the five people that have greatly influenced and impacted my life in so many ways. Mitch Albom is a fabulous writer, and what amazes me is the fact that he was able to condense such a topic in less than 200 pages. The characters were real, the plot was great, and overall, the book was beautifully written! It's a MUST READ!!!! --Shanny Age 16

After reading Tuesdays With Morrie, I couldn't help but read this book. This book was so inspirational and moving. It makes you think about the effect you have on someone's life each and every day.

One of the most heart-warming books ever written! Love the plot and the "Filipino" part of the story! Albom rocks!

This book realy got u thinking about what is to come in the after life
