    1. what providence i just remembered this book after I read some holier than though pretentious bullshit Mitch Albom wrote about Harry Potter Mr Albom Winfrey seems to think the mass marketing of Harry Potter has ruined the theoretical lives of such figures as Winnie the Pooh, Clifford, Curious George, etc despite that his own shitty books have been thrust upon the world under the same kind of marketing blitz As if I weren t annoyed enough at his article, I was subsequently reminded of this little [...]

    2. Lost love is still love, Eddie It just takes a different form, that s all You can t hold their hand You can t tousle their hair But when those senses weaken another one comes to life Memory Memory becomes your partner You hold it you dance with it Life has to end, Eddie Love doesn t The book that taught me the idea of death, God and life s never ending unanswered questions.I vaguely remember when exactly I read this but I remember I read this couple of months before I broke up with my current bo [...]

    3. I don t understand the one star reviews for the book Are these directed to the author, Mitch Albom, because he openly dissed the Harry Potter phenomena via a 594 word short story Because as far as I can tell, The Five People You Meet in Heaven is a decent piece of literature that doesn t deserve the harsh punishment presumably directed to its writer It s well written, has a handful of good quotes, and is overall an inspiring and personal take on one s idea of the moment between death and the aft [...]

    4. One of the great things about checking out audiobooks from the public library is that I can take a chance on something I normally wouldn t buy, and I end up loving it And then, of course, there are the times I take a chance on something I wouldn t normally like and end up really hating it as predicted See if you can guess which is the case here by the end of this post.The Five People You Meet in Heaven is about Eddie, an amusement park maintenance guy who dies and goes to heaven Spoiler alert, I [...]

    6. My face tightens into a mean spirited frown, I grind my teeth, my head starts to burn, I clench my fists, I begin to tremble there is a tightness in my stomach I rip the telephone off the wall and throw it out my nine story window onto the street I let out a barbaric, guttural, king of the jungle, ape like scream I feel my pulse beating in my neck, a blood vessel snaps in the back of my head I flip over my couch, CRASH I kick a hole in the middle of my T.V I like that my shin is cut, bleeding, a [...]

    7. Strangely, obliquely, like The Alchemist because this inspires strong emotions most people will either like it alot and find inspiration and meaning, or loathe it entirely and dismiss it as drivel.Similar in tone and emotion with his novel Tuesdays with Morrie I think that the greatest achievement of this story is the dreamlike, subconscious mood and setting the author creates He can get a bit syrupy, but not too bad to make this contextually a problem.Albom raises some interesting, thought prov [...]

    8. I never had any desire to read this book or Tuesdays with Morrie for that matter , but a girl in my LSAT class gave it to me to read, so I felt like I had to read it The Five People You Meet in Heaven is an incredibly quick read It has small pages with big font and the content is not at all challenging You could easily read this book in a weekend That said, I don t know if you would want to While the book was mildly entertaining and held my interest I kept wanting to know who Eddie would meet ne [...]

    9. I enjoyed this book It had a great voice, interesting characters and good messages I liked how each of the 5 people were connected in different ways, some surprise The style grabs you I thought it was a good intro to learn about how this author writes Spiritual without getting too religious Witty and charismatic on some levels Endearing to see how you watch other people live, as well as guess what happens when you die I will definitely read from the author.

    11. SPOLIER ALERT DO NOT READ ANY FARTHER IF YOU HAVENT READ YET What an incredible book this was This was about a man who dies He dies trying to save a little girl at the amusement park he worked as a maintenance man After he dies, he meets 5 people who actually show him his life had meaning Eddie, didn t believe he was worth anything He thought his life meant nothing He first meets a man he accidently helped die after the man almost kills him with a car The second one he meets is his captain in th [...]

    13. This was okay but not as good as either The First Phone Call from Heaven or The Time Keeper It was a pleasant enough story but it failed to really engross me in the various happenings.Partly I think I found it an extremely weird idea of what Heaven might be like The five people seemed a strange collection to me and I could understand if Eddie felt a bit miffed by who he got I must admit I started thinking who I might want for my five people Putting any criticism aside I read the book straight th [...]

    14. Buku yang bagus terutama bagi yang suka memaknai dan menghargai Hidup, membuat kita untuk selalu bersyukur kepada Sang Pencipta Pelajaran 1 Tidak ada kehidupan yang sia sia Satu satunya waktu yang kita sia siakan adalah waktu yang kita habiskan dengan mengira kita hanya sendirian.Pelajaran 2 Pengorbanan bagian dari kehidupan, bukan untuk disesali jika mengorbankan sesuatu yang berharga, karena kita tidak sungguh sungguh kehilangan itu, Kita hanya meneruskannya pada orang lain.Pelajaran 3 MAAF Ka [...]

    15. I just loved the fact that the fifth and last person here in this book is a Filipino DI learned that we affect other people s lives however small we do to others D

    16. Extreme simplification, ridiculous writing style, nonsense Honestly, whatever this author was trying to do, whether making me cry tears of blood, philosophy over the meaning of life, or discover my connection with those around me, but he failed miserably at all of them.How on the history of time was this book on the Bestseller list for over ninety weeks I weep for humanity.

    17. The title alone got me reading this book and when I found out the Mitch Albom wrote it since I am a big fan of his Tuesday s with Morrie Though I did not like this book as much as I did Tuesday s, Mitch Albom again succeeded in inspiring his readers and moving them to have uniquely fresh view of death just like what he did in Tuesday s.

    18. I read this at Christmas but frankly after eating too many roasted vegetables, drinking too much merlot and making myself a comfortable nest out of discarded wrapping paper, I was disinclined to write a review It s now six months later and I think I ve finally worked off the last roasted potato so this seems like a timely juncture to write a review of The Five People You Meet in Heaven Eddie works at the amusement park on the Ruby Pier He s 83 and probably due for retirement On his birthday, our [...]

    19. Lost love is still love, Eddie It takes a different form, that s all You can t see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor But when those senses weaken, another heightens Memory, Memory becomes your partner You nurture it You hold it You dance with it THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN tells the story of Eddie, the head of maintenance department at a well known amusement park On his 83rd birthday, Eddie had a severe accident Along with Eddie, the rea [...]

    20. This book is very imaginative I ll give the author that much at least I don t know if I liked the story so much as the way it was written Don t get me wrong, the story was very creative and it made you think, but he wrote so poetically it was hard for the words not to sink into your soul The story was about a old crippled man named Eddie Eddie worked at an amusement park called Ruby Pier and he was the head maintenance worker The book starts on the day of his death There was this little girl in [...]

    21. It s interesting seeing how heaven is perceived in someone else s eyes I do believe there is an afterlife of some sort, but I don t know what exactly lies there I think the concept presented in this book in which you meet five people that in one way or another shaped your life or are interconnected to you is clever Further, they explain to you about your purpose, destiny, and their involvement in you This made me think about how it is true, there are many circumstances which affect your life Eve [...]

    22. Eddie was a veteran soldier who works in the maintenance at the carnival, making sure the rides are safe and in good condition For years, his life was a routine and it s almost boring On his 83rd birthday, an accident happened as he attempts to save girl falling from the roller coaster which took his life Then he wakes up in heaven where his new journey begins He meets five people that became part of his life Some are related to him and some he barely knew until he was enlightened by their conne [...]

    23. Not at all my normal fare, but it was a last thing at night read I am a sceptic, so again this would not be a book that would attract me it s not that I like the idea of the cessation of existence at death, but I think that s what happens So how come I read this Occasionally I buy books at auction because they can be very cheap this came with assorted others, so ended up on the shelves.It s very brief and could easily be read in one sitting and is about a fairground worker called Eddie It isn t [...]

    24. I appreciate the sentiments of this book, the messages although a little schmaltzy made you stop and think about your own reflections on life, the little differences and the impact you can make that can leave impressions on other people whether your aware of it or not I wasn t completely sold on the style of the writing or the overall message, as an agnostic I feel somewhat conflicted about the whole heaven thing so I feel 3 stars is being generous.

    25. I initially gave this book 4 5 stars but I have since moved it down to 3 5 stars I thought it was a good read but I now feel that I wouldn t read it again The story centres around an elderly man who dies at the beginning of the book The man goes to heaven and there he meets with five different people These people have different connections to his life, some of them he knows and some of them he has never knowingly met before Mitch Albom gave an interesting perspective on what may happen to us onc [...]
