I loved This Book

Thank you for writing a book that makes you feel good to hear during this particular time. I looked forward to the release of each chapter, and the different points of view you presented to us.

The entirety of this series is pretty good

This review applies to the entire series:

I think it was a well crafted story set in the time of the 2020/on-going pandemic.
The fantasy/spiritual element is something that I'm not that into, I think because the depth isn't much - but still made some points. I love the diversity (racially and dynamically) of the families in as well. Their friendship is something to note of.

I should say that Mitch's narration is very good.

It pulls at the heart strings

I'm so happy to have stumbled upon this gem of a story.
It's 2022 already, 2 years after the pandemic, but listening to this, was a stark reminder of what the world went through collectively.
Mitch Albom's performance absolutely enhances the tale. Beautifully written and beautifully read.

Great Idea, BUT . . .

I found an underlying theme of racism/xenophobia very off putting. Having lived through this pandemic, I am unfamiliar with American hatred being directed to Asian people, certainly not Americans of Asian ancestry. There is anger at the Communist Party of China, but not the people. Yet this story tries to stir up animosity toward Americans of Asian ancestry as a dramatic theme. Shame on you Mitch. Wrong time to "go there." This isn't World War II on the West Coast
