I came across Mitch Albom's 'The Five People You Meet In Heaven' on Goodreads early last year (2016) and I downloaded the softcopy because of the name and started reading it but unfortunately I later dumped it in my folder and never finished it until yesterday. Lazy me right?.... Ya, that is probably what mum and dad will tell you if you ask them to describe me with one adjective, lol but no way I got occupied with other stuffs that I forgot about it. Ya!Basically I love reading books but hey not those school textbooks, they can be so boring 😔, not all though. Anyway I love fictional books.
That there are no random acts. That we are all connected. That you can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind.Mitch Albom includes pieces of Eddie's past birthdays and the events that might have taken place in the midst of Eddie processing the lessons. There are also moments where the book continues his story from the various points of view of those he left behind in order for the readers to understand the postmortem events that took place on earth. The transition is creatively written and the author is able to take you back and forth in time along with Eddie. The Five People You Meet In Heaven is an incredibly good read and a quick read as well. I kept wanting to know who Eddie was going to meet next. It's interesting seeing the way others' imagination of heaven, I do believe there is an afterlife and the book makes me to keep wondering if indeed we will meet five people when we die and who they would be. If it makes you wonder too then grab the book and get to meet the five people Eddie met while in Heaven.
