The Five People You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom

five-people-you-meeti-in-heavenThe Five People You Meet in Heaven I must admit, I may have teared up a few times when reading this book. It really is something special and quite thought provoking. It is quite a quick read, not only because it is short, but because it is so easy to get into it, hard to put down and get enough of it. Nothing about this book is really predictable. The beginning really hits you, for it starts at the end, to some extent. The chapters proceed on from that moment, where the protagonist meets his 5 people in heaven, and find out all he needs to know from them and why they are the ones in his heaven and not others. Truly an emotional text that will leave you with an opened mind and not quite satisfies with the fact that it is finished. A must read when one is feeling down or during long autumn evenings with a cup of hot tea, coffee, or hot chocolate.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads – because well I thought it was great.
