“All endings are also beginnings. We just don`t know it at that time.”

No one knows what happens to people when they die. Some people say they go to heaven or become one of the stars. Others say  they are reborn as another person whereas some people might simply say they are just gone from existence. Whatever the truth may be, Mitch Albom wrote an impressive novel titled The Five People You Meet in Heaven.

This book, The Five People You Meet in Heaven (by Mitch Albom) revolves around an unhappy, old man named “Eddie”. Eddie works at Ruby Pier as the maintenance, and takes care of the attractions and rides to ensure everyone’s safety. The first chapter starts out with Eddie dying from a fatal accident.The rest is pretty much self-explanatory when you read it. To briefly summarize the book, Eddie, now in “heaven” are greeted by five people. These people are the figures that had the biggest impact on Eddie’s life. Each person teaches Eddie a lesson. The five lessons are how everyone is connected, its necessary to make sacrifices, important to forgive, to love and be loved, and how nothing in life is a waste.

This is a very good book; fast paced, straight to the point and a book that will leave you pondering about the true meaning of life. This will change the people who take life for granted by making them pause and think over their life. This beautiful masterpiece gives out a really powerful message.

I will definitely recommend this to anyone (guys, girls, adults) who likes philosophical books or to anyone who simply want a book to enjoy. Cheers.

For those who have already read this book, I would definitely recommend other books by Mitch Albom such as Tuesdays With Morrie and For One More Day. You should also check out the film version of The Five People You Meet in Heaven.
