‘The Next Person You Meet in Heaven’ by Mitch Albom

“Finally, my deepest thanks to my readers, who continue to surprise, inspire me, motivate me, and bless me. For now, heaven may be a prayer and a guess. But I know, thanks to you, I have experienced some of it already.”

With that acknowledgement comes a personal note of thanks to his fans (of which there are many) from Mitch Albom, the author of the beloved Tuesdays with Morrie. He has just published his first sequel to his other most famous book  The Five People You Meet in Heaven.

Albom’s Uncle Eddie originally had an image of the afterlife which Albom has captured quite captivatingly in both books. This book continues with the story of Annie whom Eddie Maintenance saves in the first book. This is not meant to be a theological study on what to expect when we die–suspend disbelief (or belief) and just enjoy the bits of wisdom floating around in the narrative. As with all of his books, he has a journalist’s jaunty writing style which is easy to read, thoughtful, uplifting, and entertaining.

Of course not everyone is a fan, and when I was researching I came across this review which was just too funny to not include… Apologies to Mitch though, I really do love your books…
