Book Review of 90 Minutes In Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life

90 Minutes In Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life
Helpful Score: 43


When I initially began reading this book, I was disappointed because I had hoped the author would spend more time recounting his experiences in heaven. (Only a couple of pages are devoted to his description of dying.) I found the middle of the book to be quite boring, and I took a long time to read it and almost didn't finish it for this reason. However, the book really picked up at the end. Don's stories about his recovery, though painful and depressing, were effective at reminding me of all of the things that I tend to take for granted in my daily life. I also really enjoyed reading about how Don turned other people's lives around by sharing his experiences and insights. I recommend this book to anyone who has recently lost a loved one, or who is in the process of recovering from serious injuries. However, I don't recommend this book to someone who is closeminded in the sense that they might become offended by the Christian religious perpective. In some ways, this book reminded me of "Tuesdays With Morrie." If you enjoyed reading "Tuesdays With Morrie," you will probably enjoy this book as well.
