On Eddie’s 83rd birthday he goes to Ruby Pier, an amusement park, for his job as the maintenance man. When an attraction malfunctions and he tries to save a little girl, he dies. After he arrives in heaven, he meets five people who each had an impact in his life—some he knew, and some he didn’t—and they explain how their lives connected with his, telling him stories about his life on earth. The Five People You Meet In Heaven, is a wonderful book and I would suggest it to people of all age groups due to its interesting storyline and engaging, accessible narration. Albom handles the hardships of life, sacrifice, and why people do what they must with the utmost sensitivity. This heart-touching book gives readers valuable insight into the bonds that make up life.
