one of the most heartwarming books i have read.

I got a real kick out of this book. I think it is one of the best books I have read. It has an interesting plot and a very COOL outlook on heaven.

Yes this book is wonderful!

I absolutely loved this book! It really makes you think about life and makes you wonder and hope that when you make it to Heaven that this is what you could look forward to.

read this book carefully and you will be able to see a treasure beyond the story and the plot. after reading this book, i found it easier to move past some personal bitter experiences. totally worth investing in. moreover, the story is very fast paced, and can be finished in 1-2 sittings.

This book is amazing it keeps you on the edge wanting to keep reading to see what happens next. It makes you wonder who the five people are in your life, that you have touched in some way that you may meet in heaven. (I'm 17 and it's made me feel a way i've never felt before). I reccomend this book to ages 14 and up.

im so glad i read this book ... it gave me a chance to think about my life and how i was thinking it was meaningless ...this book makes everyone reconsider and think about the littlest of lives that we touch and touch us .... that for every action theres an affect that affet the rest of the world and for moments on end weather they are positive or negative ......

One of the most inspiring books I've read in years. This book causes you to think about the five people in your own life who you might meet in heaven. This is a surprisingly gripping story that you won't be able to put down. I think it is an important book with a powerful message... yet skillfully done without preaching any particular religion.
