Not really worth the read. Many reviews seemed to recommend this book so I gave it a try. Too sappy and really nothing earth-shattering.
In a go-go world where few stop to think about what life is really all about, this book is a reminder that our lives are important and do count. We are significant and the impact our lives have on others cannot often be understood in this life time. I was very glad that I took the time to listen to this wonderful story. I hope you do too. You won't be sorry.
I expected more from the book given the reviews. Although it is short, it is hard to maintain interest in the book. The lessons that are supposed to be taught are difficult to discern. I had to go back multiple times trying to figure out what he was trying to say. When I finshed, all I thought was--What was that all about? For someone looking for spirituality guides, there are many better books out there.
This was a very boring read...characters were boring, events were dull..I just couldn't see why any of this would be worth writing about! And the musical interludes were very annoying. I didn't like the writer's premise or the "life lessons" he put in the book...I just didn't like a single thing about this book.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven was recommended to me by a dear and close friend. It went unlistened to for quite a while because it wasn't a "first page grabber". I knew what it was going to say anyway. (Or so I thought!)
This book is truly a life changer and I recommend it to anyone.
I thought the best part of this audio book is how beautiful the writing is. Luckily the narration is great or I might not have picked up on it (or been too annoyed to notice).
The story is fascinating and makes you wonder about the 5 people in your life.
