The Five People You Meet In Heaven

The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Five people

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom has become one of my favourite novels. Eddie is a war veteran who believes he has lived a meaningless life. On Eddie’s 83rd birthday, he is killed in an accident trying to save a little girl at the amusement park he works at. When he wakes up from the blackness he realizes he is in heaven where five people from his life come to him one by one to explain his life and the impact he has had. This novel had me on a roller coaster of emotions, which seems fitting being that Eddie grew up in an amusement park which he later ended up working at. I enjoyed the narrative and how Eddie was eventually able to come to terms with and find meaning in the life he had lived.
