This book was great, I read it about a month after my daughter passed away in a car wreck and it really gave me something to think about. I wonder daily who was waiting for her, and that things happen for a purpose. There is a reason for everything in this life we will find out what that purpose is in the next one..Jennifer 29

this book gives pivital insight into the reprocussions of daily actions, yeilding the come about of a persons inane sense of solitarity to change to a universal understanding of basic unity. This book should be read by people of all ages, for its content, as well as its lesson.

this is a truly great book and it teaches us all about what will happen in the afterlife and it teaches us about the past that we live in and gives us answer... Im amazed with this novel.

I just finished reading, The five people you meet in heaven. I'm very glad that I picked this book to read it for my bestsellers reading class. It gave me a new perspective on how we live our lives from day-to-day. It also made me realize just how much the things that one person does can impact another person's life. This book offers a very comforting view on life after death. I would love to get to heaven and meet five people who would explain the purpose of my life to me and why the things that happened to me happened. I really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to all readers!

GREAT BOOK!!!!!!!!!

I just finished reading, The five people you meet in heaven. I think it was a very good book, and im glad i was able to read it. It gave me a new perspective on life after death. Also, it makes you think who your five people in heaven would be. No one truely knows what happens after death, but this is an excellent, and postive outlook. Another great thing about this book is religon is not a big factor. It does not matter what religon you are to enjoy this book. Good job!

This simple, but fantastic story of a man learning his place in the world AFTER he's dead, will entrance readers both relegious and not. Mitch Albom has created a feel good journey for the reader that may help, as well as entertain. Pass this book to as many people as possible.

Five Stars!!!
