Really wanted to like this book... but it rambled on, despite a good narrator.

Repeatedly kept trying to " read" this book, starting over numerous times - but it could never hold my attention .

i repeatedly fell asleep because of its incoherant writing process. Very disappointing because its concepts were good- but but poorly executed!

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

What will heaven be like? Randy Alcorn presents a thoroughly biblical answer, based on years of careful study, presented in an engaging, reader-friendly style. His conclusions will surprise listeners and stretch their thinking about this important subject. Heaven will inspire listeners to long for heaven while they're living on earth.
