Fifteen years ago, in Mitch Albom’s beloved novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the world fell in love with Eddie, a grizzled war veteran turned amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Eddie’s journey to heaven taught him that every life matters. Now, in this magical sequel, Mitch Albom reveals Annie’s story.

The first book I read for personal enjoyment in college was the five people you meet in heaven and ever since I have devoured every Mitch Albom book the day I get it in my audible library. He knows how to reveal the human spirit without all the extra fluff and extra icing that ruin the cake.

Rico has a problem. The experimental program that gave him the high intelligence and lightning reflexes he needs as a hit man for a galactic crime syndicate left him incapable of internalizing moral imperatives the rest of us take for granted. It takes real effort for him to pass as a normal human being and he avoids it whenever he can. But he has a job he loves, a fast ship, and plenty of cash. So life is good.

Pleasing surprise I don't like sociopath books but this is hilarious and a wildly fun and at times wicked but always entertaining roller coaster ride. I had listened to too many Sci fi books that were either boorishly slow or too generic and lacking in originality. This book was not either of those and if you want funny and creative Sci fi this is truly a masterpiece
