Deborah Fochler, March 9, 2012 (view all comments by Deborah Fochler)
A few years ago I read THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN and was mesmerized by Mitch Albom. When I saw this book, I knew I had to read it but had doubts about whether it would be as good as Five People. It was a rainy nasty night, I was home alone so I crawled into the recliner, grabbed a blanket, cup of hot chocolate and my book. Three hours later I realized I had become completely lost into this story to the point I didnt hear the phone ring. It is simply written and "Chick" tells all his mistakes. At one point I almost wanted to say "dont be so hard on yourself" but he does what we all do with regrets - we blame ourselves. Be prepared with a box of kleenex but once again this book also leaves the reader with a newfound appreciation for our loves ones and the unknown of this world we cant see, hear and explain. But the question that still haunts me - how would I spend one more day with the loves ones I have lost - mother, father, daughter, sister, brother or friend. IF they are only a vibration away, what a wonderful thought that we will be reunited. I promise this book wont disappoint you but it will make you ponder and consider your own mortality or immortality and your relationships with loved ones.
