The five people you meet in heaven- Book Review


Enticed by the title and nice online reviews, I selected it and simply put I was amazed by this book, and the author’s thought process. Imagining heaven seemed next to impossible for me and even today I am clueless if I have to write about heaven but this book made me feel that how heaven could be. 


The story starts with the death of old and crippled Freddie in an accident. He worked as a maintenance person in the amusement park. It then takes Freddie to heaven where he gets to meet five people from his life on earth.  The people who had marked a significant life event in his life. He interacts with them and sets his mind free of all the prejudices and doubts that he had had while his time on earth.


 The story is very simple, but the USP of this book is the concept of heaven and a meticulous narration of the story. It is not a thriller, not a run down chase sequence, no mystery, but you would never want it to end. 

Why I rated this as four stars and not five?

I expected more description and context of Freddie's discussion with the fourth and fifth people. It was great but it did not match the way it was explained for the first three people. 


This book is not for people who only like fan-fiction, love-stories or run-down chase thrillers. This book is for readers who want to understand life, explore  people around them and ready to take inspiration from anybody and everybody. It will help you see your Life Mirror.

Happy Reading :)
