Five People You Meet in Heavenby Mitch Albom
Synopses & Reviews
From the author of the number one New York Times bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie comes this long-awaited follow-up.
Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination. It s a place where your life is explained to you by five people, some of whom you knew, others who may have been strangers. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie s five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his meaningless life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: Why was I here?
A moving and profound contemporary fable, The Five People You Meet in Heaven is an important reminder of the interconnectedness of us all.
From the Hardcover edition.
A first novel from the bestselling author of "Tuesdays With Morrie". Albom addresses the issues of life, death and life after death through Eddie, a grizzled war veteran whose tragic death is only the beginning of his journey.
