I loved this book. I can't imagine a better book for giving to someone who thinks that their life doesn't matter. It will definitely change you and make you realize that " to someone you may be the world".
No matter what your personal belief of the after life is, you can still digest some moral and philosophical lessons contained within this short and easy to read book. "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" points out the inter-connectedness of people. Allowing us to look back on our actions and hopefully understand the domino effect of these actions.
This is a quick, easy read. Absolutely engrossing, about an ordinary man with an average, mundane life. He finds out after he goes to heaven how meaningful his life really was, as well as finding answers to questions that have haunted him all of his life. Fantastic introspect into an everyday average life and those who intersect with our lives affecting us in some way, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. Great novel about the journey of our body & soul.
Not much to do with heaven exactly but more to do with the five people that had an impact on his life and the way he impacted theirs. It makes you wonder what people will remember you for , after your gone.
Another great book by Mr. Albom. I read "Tuesday's with Morrie" and just loved it. He didn't disappoint in writing this book. A fiction story that makes you realize how important your life is and doing little things for people can make a difference. Great one day read! Enjoy!
