From the author of the phenomenal number one bestseller TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, comes this enchanting, beautifully written novel that explores a mystery only heaven can unfold. Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in the toil of his father before him, fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. Then he dies in a tragic accident, trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakens in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden, but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by five people who were in it. These people may have been loved
I got up at 5am this morning because I couldn't sleep (migraine) and decided to read this book and had it finished by 9.30am (with a little cat nap while I read). I really enjoyed the book although I think it would probably be considered a little too schmaltzy and sentimental for a lot of people. I sat there blubbing through much of it, although that could be more about my mood earlier than the sadness of the book . It's a story about a man who meets his long dead mother whilst attempting to commit suicide after a life time of disappointment and regret and his attempt to seek forgive
Mitch Albom - Tuesdays with Morrie - 1997 I read this book a while ago and was just reminded about it when reading the author's second boook The Five People you Meet in Heaven.This book is telling the relationship between Mitch Albom and his former university professor. The author hears about his professor falling sick and starts visiting him every Tuesday. It is a very moving and touching book. For me, it was even more personal when I found out that a friend of mine had been diagnosed with ALS a couple of weeks later. (thread first started 22.07.06)
