Not many words are needed to describe The Five People You Meet in Heaven. As Amy Tan states on the back cover, "This book is a gift to the soul." I was mesmerised from start to finish, and didn't want it to end.
We follow the journey of the main character, Eddie, who has just died, and is crossing to the other side with help from five people along the way. A simple story, yet Mitch Albom has managed to create something extraordinary in the two-hundred pages of this book.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven took my breath away, everyone should read it, and I can't wait to pick it up again.
