I loved this story. Liked how the mystery slowly unfolded. I was gripped till the end. A good reader too
Another great Mitch albom book. This guy has a way with words and a distinctive writing style I love. Looking forward to the next
"Not what you would expect....."
Another great story from Mitch Albom. Not quite as good as the Time Keeper, but he has a way of writing which is unique to him. There is a distinct meloncoly to the writing and by reading this himself he is able to bring the exact atmospher he wants to the book. This is a great story, sifting through the consequences of what would happen if a phone call from heaven were to happen. The realities and unrealities of people behaviour in such a circumstance and he takes the characters through as many events as he can encompassing emotions taken on by their actions and the consequences. There is a twist in the story bringing everything to what you might think is finality, but of course the reader has to make the final decision. Nicely read, he keeps the whole story flowing to its finale. Worth your money.
A beautiful story, beautifully narrated. The last hour was compelling. One to make you think long after it's finished. Loved it!
"kept me involved from start to end."
This story is totally involving and a good mixture of what you might expect from Mitch Albom after "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" and a good whodunnit. Several times I thought I had sussed the ending and a couple of times I was wrong! Heart warming and thought provoking without being "off with the fairies"
Mitch Albom is very easy to listen to, unlike some authors who insist on reading their own work.
Really well worth listening to. I wish I had kept it for my long haul flight next month - I might even listen to it again.
"I love Mitch Albom but this just misses the mark"
I cant seem to relate to the characters, normally Mitch Albom's characters are thoughtful and pull you into their lives, in this book I just couldn't 'feel' for them at all
definitely I love all his other books
I found the characters merging into one
its a shame that I didn't like this one
how the story is played out.
he gives the story a emotianal side
towards the end. not saying what as it will spoil the book for others
"Oh dear, just because technology is there ...."
No extra sound effects. Just because the technology is there, it doesn't mean it needs to be used. I stopped listening because of them and I hope Audible in future will slap a sound effects warning. I will know to avoid them I seldom purchase dramas for the same reason - background music.
Ensured no corny sound effects. I fear as an author he's off my list, even though I did so enjoy The Time Keeper.
The sound effects are unnecessary in a straight audio reading.
"Just awful as far as I was concerned."
Wish I had not gone there in the first place
His voice was fine it was the content that was so ridiculous.
I did not finish it as I did not find it in any way engaging.
"Interesting and thought provoking"
Intelligent, uplifting, predictable
I absolutely loved " the five people you meet in heaven " and was expecting something as creative and charming, but have to admit I was a touch disappointed.
" what would you say in a phone call from Heaven ?"
It's not a bad book, it's thought provoking and has a charm, but it's a little disappointing. I am glad I read ( listened to ) it, but much prefer " The Five People You Meet in Heaven " which is very moving.
