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.

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.

Surprisingly, my elder son (college age) who claims not to believe in heaven or God and knows my personal emotional tug of war with my mother on "church", gave me this book. That shows to me that this book can touch people of all ages and beliefs. What happens when we die? Where do we go? These are questions we all wonder about some time in our lives. I think that most important of all is the question - "did my life make a difference?" This is the question that this book talks about through the fictional life of an ordinary man who never achieved "great" things or lived up to his idea of potential. This book tries to convey that a life does have meaning far beyond what one might expect or imagine. We are all stepping stones in life's pathway or keys to a lock in time and not always to people we'd expect to affect. So I've taken the message to be one of everyone does matter and we are instrumental in many of the least expected ways. The book is very easy to read and takes very little time. It is well-written - almost like a play in many ways. It has no religious leanings. But it is VERY philosophical in a very sweet way. Most people will shed tears when they read this if they are open to the message the author tries to convey. But they are happy tears.

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!

This was my first book by this author, but it won't be my last. I started it on Sat afternoon and finished it Sunday. Very easy to read and whether you agree with the theory or not, it certainly did make me think and look at my life a little different.

In this book we follow Eddie, an ordinary man, as he reflects on the impact his life had on the lives of many others, lives intersecting unknowingly, with help from five people he meets in heaven after his death. Much like 'Tuesdays with Morrie,' this book is filled with sentiment and life lessons, although I thought 'Tuesdays with Morrie' was much better. 'The Five People You Meet in Heaven' is a quick, light read, a guilty pleasure if you will. I enjoyed reading it even though it is highly overrated. I understand why Mitch Albom is so popular, nonetheless, and I'm sure his books will be around for a long time.

An EXCELLENT book full of spirituality and truth. Made me cry and laugh and is quite profound. It's about a man who, upon dying, meets up with 5 people on his journey into heaven (hence the title). It is surprising who he meets and what they have to show and tell him. Very deep and a bestseller for good reason!

This book is amazing, and it will make you read it cover to cover. It is a profound story and incredibly thought-provoking. It follows the death of a man who thought he was nothing. It shows you that everyone, and everything, is intricately connected in some way or form. It will definitely make you think, and may even bring a tear or two to your eyes. Definitely worth reading.

In true Mitch Albom form, this book challenged me to think about what can be learned about life while in the process of living. Poor Eddie, the main character in this book, didn't learn about life until after he died. So, this book is not really about the afterlife. The moral of the story is to alive and aware while living.

An exceptional read. This book takes you through the main character's life replaying the things he has done (good and bad). Well written and very heart warming. However, I would caution you to read "Tuesdays with Maurey" first to fully apreciate this book.

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.

Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. As the park has changed over the years--from the Loop-the-Loop to the Pipeline Plunge, so, too, has Eddie changed from the otimistic youth to embittered old age. His days are a dull routine of work, loneliness, and regret.

Then on his 83rd birthday, Eddie dies in a tragic accident, trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. With his final breath, he feels two small hands in his -- and then nothing. He awakens in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden, but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by five people who were in it. These people may have been loved ones ot distant strangers. Yet each of them changed your path forever.

One by one, Eddie's five people illuminate the unseen connections of his earthly life. As the story builds to is stunning conclusion, Eddie desperately seeks redemption in the still-unknown last act of his life. Was it a heroic success or a devastating failure? The answer, which comes from the most unlikely of sources, is as inspirational as a flimpse of heaven itself.

My definition of a great book: one that leaves you thinking about it long after you're finished reading it. This is one of those books. You may not agree with Albom's definition of heaven or even believe in a heaven, but you can't dispute that there are important lessons to be learned from life. This book gives the reader a chance to step back and look at the meaning of life and realize there are always repercussions to our actions. It's so easy to get lost in the minutae of day-to-day living that it's nice to have this chance to sit back and wonder what it's all about. The fact that there are no answers doesn't take away from the importance of pondering the question.

There are five people you meet following death. A few you may trust with your life (pardon the pun), others you may not even recognize. But they've all had an impact on your life and all hold a reason to your living.

At least according to Mitch Albom, anyway. He sure makes it sound convincing, I must say.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven follows the death (and life recap) of war veteran and amusement park mechanic Eddie, who sacrifices himself to save a little girl from a falling park ride. The plot beginning at his death allows Albom to experiment with religiously-tinged visions and experiences in the afterlife, which he does so subtly and eloquently. The unfolding of Eddie's life through the people he meets is captivating and revealing of the character, though not giving away so much as to leave little for the imagination. The grief behind his war wounds and losses adds a sturdy underlay to his transitions between people, providing a vulnerability not originally found in the gruff, miserable old man.

Every other chapter ends in the question of whether Eddie saved the little girl from the falling ride, usually leaving it unanswered until the final chapter, during which the fifth and final person he meets reveals the truth behind one of his many war conquests and the girl's demise. If the main body of the story seems to run a little slow, the powerful punch packed into the final chapter makes it worth the trip to the end.

Albom's descriptions of the park and accounts of the times following Eddie's death are bittersweet because of their realism and are that much more influential because of it. Albom will have each and every reader, no matter what belief or religion, wishing that their afterlife is as revealing, emotional and inspiring as Eddie's was.

Albom has a way of telling such human stories. towards the end of the book I found myself having to put it down every few minutes to compose myself, tough to explain how one can get so emotionally involved in a book, but i think most people will really enjoy this book, but have some tissues on hand.

This was my first experience with Mitch Albom's work. I do not follow him on his radio show or sports reporting. And I haven't read Tuesdays with Morrie. I had not read this book before listening to it as an audiobook. I mention this because in talking with friends, I feel like a person's experience with Mitch Albom's work may affect the impression this book leaves on them.

Also, I am not an overly religious person. This book has a very specific view of what heaven is and what happens after a person dies. A few of my friend's with strongly held religious views had philosophical problems with this story. But I did not.

Overall, I thought the story was nice. I was not overly impressed with any part of it, but I was not disappointed or irritated with it either. I walked away with a so-so feeling overall. It was okay, but I don't know that I would rush back to listen to it again.

I did enjoy the introduction by Mitch Albom and the interview at the end. And I thought that together they framed the story very well. I really don't think I would have gotten what I had out of the story without those. So I feel like I would have been less impressed had I read the book versus listening to it. The narrator does a good job of giving different characters different voices, but sometimes the voices did come off as fake.

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.

This has got to be one of my most favorite books of all time! If you read this book without shedding a single tear.. I commend you! It has also been made into a movie by Hallmark several years ago.. that is excellent, and follows the book very well!
This book is so well written. Not a religious book in nature.. in my opinion any person of any religion can read and identify with this book.
A MUST READ, AND A BOOK I KEEP ON MY SHELF NEXT TO ALL MY OTHER CLASSICS that I will NEVER trade or get rid of!

To put it bluntly, the main character, Eddie, dies and meets five people in heaven as the title suggests. He is a combat veteran and maintenance worker who dies from attempting to save a girl's life. He then goes through an insightful journey in his heaven as he meets the five people.
I would recommend this book to anyone, no matter what your favorite genre or walk of life. For how short this book is, it covers a pretty good range of stories and enlightenment. Acceptance and appreciation of life, the plot covered it full circle.
Five out of five.

The magic to Mitch Albom's approach is that he touches upon something that we all think about - What happens after we die? No one has definitively been able to answer the question and what Albom has done is to take the comforting reply to that question (we go to heaven), and add A Christmas Carol story-twist to it. Heaven isn't necessarily filled with rolling hills and bon-bons. It's about making sense out of your life and bringing it to its natural closure. And in many ways, Albom's way of dealing with death is quite comforting for me. I've always had a fear about dying. At one time in my life, it was about the act of dying. Would I be in a lot of pain? Would I be by myself? Would I die of natural causes? Would something horrible happen to me? Then, it proceeded to this helpless feeling of never being able to be again. I couldn't imagine not being. Not touching. Feeling. Hugging. Kissing. Smelling. Death - before, during, and after - is scary. Albom's approach isn't totally unique but it is therapeutic. He has a way of making sense of it all.

It keeps you interested in hearing the story, and wanting to know how all of these people are connected to the main character. I loved how descriptive it was, and how you could almost feel "the rubbery body of youth" then the change to the "hardened, tough body of an old man" as the book progressed. I highly recommend this to anyone, it has interesting views on what happens after death and how life doesn't just end, not do you just get transported straight to Heaven, you have a job to do for someone who affected your life.

Part melodrama and part parable, Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven weaves together three stories, all told about the same man: 83-year-old Eddie, the head maintenance person at Ruby Point Amusement Park. As the novel opens, readers are told that Eddie, unsuspecting, is only minutes away from death as he goes about his typical business at the park. Albom then traces Eddie's world through his tragic final moments, his funeral, and the ensuing days as friends clean out his apartment and adjust to life without him. In alternating sections, Albom flashes back to Eddie's birthdays, telling his life story as a kind of progress report over candles and cake each year. And in the third and last thread of the novel, Albom follows Eddie into heaven where the maintenance man sequentially encounters five pivotal figures from his life (a la A Christmas Carol). Each person has been waiting for him in heaven, and, as Albom reveals, each life (and death) was woven into Eddie's own in ways he never suspected. Each soul has a story to tell, a secret to reveal, and a lesson to share. Through them Eddie understands the meaning of his own life even as his arrival brings closure to theirs.

One thing I thought was weird was that it contained no religious references. God is never mentioned even though the entire book is about living, dying, and going to Heaven, yes, in this book the people die and go to Heaven but don't get greeted by God. I found that odd.

I enjoyed the book and it made me cry also. One lesson I thought it taught was that we know now how our lives intersect or affect others.

Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. Then, on his 83rd birthday, Eddie dies in a tragic accident trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. Eddie awakens in the Afterlife, where he learns that Heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden, but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by five people who were in it.

This was an interesting read, but I found the author's idea of heaven as rather depressing. To get a different view of Heaven, I recommend reading Deadline by Randy Alcorn.

This was a very different type of book. I almost didn't finish it. Once I got into it more, I started to like it more. When you start to meet Eddie's people in Heaven, you can't help wonder who he will meet next. The best part, too, is that it's a short book and therefore doesn't take long to read.

Very interesting, quick-read book. From the author of Tuesdays with Morrie. Eddie is a simple man who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. Then on his 83rd birthday Eddie dies in a tragic accident, trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakens in the afterlife where he learns that heaven is not a lush garden of eden, but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by 5 people who were part of your life, but now are in Heaven.

Having lost a very special person in my life, it helped me to deal with a lot of emotions.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, the first I have read by this famous author, substantially because it is a novel unlike any other I've read. In many ways, it reminds me of the Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, except it's not as dark and deep-- it's romantic, but the relationships that people have and their interconnection between heaven and earth are pretty similar. The title tells you the storyline of the book, but it doesn't tell you of the sweet romance that is the centerpiece of the story, or about the stronghold that families of orgins have on people. There is a trite passage about forgiveness, without any accompanying discussion about what this means, that prevented me from giving this five stars. Otherwise, a flawless novel and a softhearted, uplifting ending.

"On his 83rd birthday, Eddie, a lonely war veteran, dies in a tragic accident trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. With his final breath, he feels two small hands in his - and then nothing. He awakens in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by five people who were in it. These people may have been loved ones or distant stranges. Yet each of them changed your path forever."

I thought this was an excellent story about how our lives are affecting those around us without realizing it.

Eddie has worked at Ruby Pier, an amusement park near the ocean, for his entire life, right after being in the armed forces during the war. Eddie is the maintenance man who takes care of the rides and making sure that they stay safe. There is an accident on one of the rides and Eddie loses his life.
Eddie is transported to heaven and there is where we start his journey meeting the five people who will make this story what it is.
Some of the people Eddie meets in heaven make absolute sense to me, but there was one that didn't and that was the last one. It made sense to have that person be there, but I really thought that person should have been numbered differently.
This book makes you wonder if some day you will enter the gates of heaven and meet your five people and who they might wind up being. Just thinking about that makes the book worth reading.
