Part drama and portion parable, Mitch Albom's The Five Persons You Meet in Heaven weaves with each other three reports, all advised about the same man: 83-year-old Eddie, the head routine service person in Ruby Stage Amusement Playground. As the novel unwraps, readers will be told that Eddie, unsuspecting, is only a few minutes away from death as he will go about his typical organization at the recreation area. Albom then traces Eddie's world through his tragic final occasions, his funeral service, and the ensuing days since friends get rid of his apartment and conform to life without him. In alternating parts, Albom whizzes back to Eddie's birthdays, sharing with his existence story as being a kind of progress report above candles and cake annually. And in the 3rd and last thread in the novel, Albom follows Eddie into nirvana where the routine service man sequentially encounters five pivotal numbers from his life (a la A Christmas Carol). Each person have been waiting for him in heaven, and, while Albom uncovers, each lifestyle (and death) was woven into Eddie's own in manners he under no circumstances suspected. Every soul contains a story to see, a magic formula to reveal, and a lesson to share. Through them Eddie understands this is of his own life even as his arrival gives closure to theirs.
Albom requires a big risk with the book; such a story can easily veer into the saccharine and preachy, and this one particular does in moments. But , for the most part, Albom's telling is still poignant and is also occasionally outstanding. Even with their flaws, The Five People You Fulfill in Heaven is a small , and pure, and book.
