Book Club Friday : The Five People You Meet in Heaven

It's been forever since I joined Book Club Friday with Blonde... Undercover Blonde but I read a book just for fun!

From Amazon:

Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. His days are a dull routine of work, loneliness, and regret.

Then, on his 83rd birthday, Eddie 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. These people may have been loved ones or distant strangers. Yet each of them changed your path forever.

One by one, Eddie's five people illuminate the unseen connections of his earthly life. As the story builds to its stunning conclusion, Eddie desperately seeks redemption in the still-unknown last act of his life: Was it a heroic success or a devastating failure The answer, which comes from the most unlikely of sources, is as inspirational as a glimpse of heaven itself.

In The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom gives us an astoundingly original story that will change everything you've ever thought about the afterlife--and the meaning of our lives here on earth. With a timeless tale, appealing to all, this is a book that readers of fine fiction, and those who lovedTuesdays with Morrie, will treasure.

I adore Mitch Albom's other books and was actually surprised I hadn't read this before.  The entire book is perpetuated by one question and it really kept me hooked; I needed to know.  

I started reading the book at 9 am and was finished with it by noon time.  It's a nice, easy read but there's so much to the story and makes you think about your own life. 

I just loved it and you should absolutely read it!
