This was an excellent read - I was a bit worried going into it that the book would be one of those saccharin-sweet stories that are all fluff and no substance, but boy was I off-base. After the first couple chapters, I sat down and made some guesses about how I'd expect the story to end, but I was wrong about all of that, too.

This is a pretty quick read, but I hesitate to call it "light" because the material is pretty moving and definitely has some bittersweet moments. I think the best way to enjoy the book is to give it a whole day - read the book in the morning, and go out and do something fun with friends and family in the afternoon.

What a story to make you think that Heaven could be like this - a glimpse anyway. Really makes you realize that you really do have an affect on many people's lives whether you know it or not. This was written really well and held my attention - a different story than I was expecting but in a good way.

This book mad me sob! I loved it! It really makes you think about how we are all connected, and how even our smallest interaction with someone can have a huge effect on their lives. A great book!

This was a very nice read. It really made you stop and think how we are all interconnected in the larger scheme of things. Couldn't put it down.

I loved this book. It is one of my all time favorites. It is kind of 'It's a Wonderful Life-ish' in how he got to see how his life changed the life of others- good and bad.

I reviewed this book, but I'm not sure it went through...I read it because my friends were reading it and no matter what questions I asked about it, they confusingly could not answer them. For me, after the first two chapters, I think I would have quit if I hadn't been wondering what my friends were talking about. Hang in there, it gets better. It is a very quick read, kind of a feel good story with some nightmares inserted (for me!!) Spiritual, meaning of life kinds of things that you will already have been thinking about as you age. Not my favorite book by all means, but not a waste of time either. Read it and you decide....
