This book is hands-down one of the greatest fiction novels I've ever read in my life. I love the way that the author tells the story in a way that almost seems to need to be read aloud. We'll always assume things about heaven, but the way that the author weaves the story of the main characters experience in heaven is one that you can only hope to experience one day. If you read this book, you will not regret it!
Wonderful story that I couldn't stop listening too. Written in such a way that one chapter made you want to know what happened to the next one you could see smell here feel all the things that the characters in the book Felt the love that Marguerite and Eddie shared and the progression through heaven meeting with each of the people in understanding the why behind it was awesome
I'm a fan of books that promote traditional family values and offer uplifting messages.
I liked this book and recommend it. It's fascinating to ponder what awaits us after death. While this is a work of fiction, I liked the way this author portrayed heaven and the need to understand this life. Very thoughtful and tender.
It was hard to relate to the main character - an 83 year old man who grunted a lot. The subject matter could have been handled better too. I thought the concept held more promise than was delivered.
No. My expectations were not met.
There was nothing that stood out as a "wow" moment for me. The worse part of all was the narration of the book, especially since it was done by the author. I almost did not complete the book for that very reason.
However, since the ratings were so great I kept thinking something is going to get better. (Just didn't work for me).
Only if you don't read it first.
Yes. It is one of his best
Yes. Short book but so entertaining
Not really. I spent more time listening to Mitch Albom's accent and lisp.
Mitch should have had a professional narrate his book; his narration includes his accent, his lisp, and his pedantry.
If you want to listen to Mitch Albom ham it up, listen to the 'special' interview at the end. Geez, I thought I was going to throw up. It's embarrassing hearing an author speak so poorly and make grammatical errors during an interview where the soft-ball questions are gobbled up by Mitch, like that dog food where you add water and it 'makes it's own gravy'. What a douche!
