I loved this book and the story! My son had already read it and I was going to read it until I saw it on audible.com. It was a very interesting and wonderful story. I did not like the narrator's attempt to speak in the child's voice (that was irritating after awhile), but it did not take anything away from my enjoyment of the overall book. I completely agree, Heaven is for Real!!
No, it was VERY repetative, like the author assumed we would repeatedly forget the boy's story of heaven.
The story - I believe it's true
No, his voice was unpleasant. I had to take breaks from it.
I'm glad I learned the story.
This one is for old fashion reading.
When a child under terrible circumstances has a vision and then begins sharing it with his father, I thought I'd be inspired. Instead though I found that the child said things he didn't comprehend and then just walked off to play while the father was stumped only to justify his own beliefs with what his son said. It was frustrating to me to hear. I felt manipulated by the words of a child, which if I didn't like the explanation of, I'd be cast as an unbeliever his father the pastor. It wasn't so much the story of the child and what he saw that bothered me, it was the interpretation of the story by his father. If heaven is for real then I believe it will be open to all good people whether they have accepted Christ as their Savior or not. If not, is that really the kind of heaven you want to be in.
I wasn't aware how much this book was dominated by religion, maybe I didn't get enough information about it ahead of time. The story was interesting but kind of hokey and a bit far fetched, even if it was true. Just not my style at all!
I thought this was a fantastic testimony. The orator did an excellent job reading the book. I didn't want to turn it off to work but had to. I was kept rivited to my computer. I want to share it with everyone.
This book was very inspirational and full of confirmation of what most of us had read or have been taught. It gives hope to those that may fear death and comforts those who have lossed love ones. Although he has come from a spiritual family who reads bible stories to their children at a young age you can not ignore what he has seen that he would not have known. This is for believers and seekers. For those on the fence a must.
What an incredibly fascinating story. I would be driving to work listening and wanted to stay in the car to see what would happen next. Its a book that makes you think long and hard about whether there is a heaven and a God. A great book that already have recommended to others who have also loved it too.
As a "believer" I found this a little hokie. . . . too much of this story is contrived . . . the author and his son spend too much energy convincing the reader of its believability.
Not especially well-written, but the story is riveting and very believable. The non-believers will find holes in the story and explain it away. Believers will find even more proof that there really is a place called heaven.
