I started this book yesterday and I just couldn’t put it down. The book takes you through the last few days of an amusement park maintenance worker named Eddie. The book was not exactly what I thought it was going to be about, but the 194 pages of this book goes by quickly. You travel through the life of Eddie and the five people that he meets in heaven. It is interesting who he meets and the story that they have to tell him on why they are one of the five. In general, the reason that they are chosen as one of five is because the person that they are chosen for (Eddie in the case of this book) has had some profound effect on their life, whether they know it or not. The book is a quick read and I’d recommend it to anyone who has a spare three hours to spend reading a book.
Quote of the Day: “Love, like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with a soaking joy. But sometimes, under the angry heat of life, love dries on the surface and must nourish from below, tending to its roots, keeping itself alive.” – The Five People You Meet in Heaven
