    At certain moments, when death is close, the veils pull back between this world and the next Heaven and Earth overlay When they do, it is possible to glimpse certain souls already departed You can see the awaiting your arrival And they can see you coming Mitch Albom is one of my favourite authors He manages to make the mundane parts of life magical and heart warming.I absolutely love The Five People You Meet in Heaven and this is set up as a sequel to that one We follow Annie, the young girl who s life was saved by Eddie that day on the pier.Since that day in her childhood, Annie s life has been rough Her mum was constantly off with boyfriends, and set Annie really strict rules on not leaving the house, and socializing in an effort to protect her No act done for someone else is ever wasted I won t give away much because of spoilers, but as it states in the blurb, on Annie s wedding night, her life is changed forever, and she dies.As expected she meets her five people in heaven Five people she may or may not know who have altered her life in some way.I enjoyed venturing back into Mitch Albom s work, and although it wasn t as wonderful at least to me as The Five People You Meet in Heaven I found it touching, and would recommend to others who have enjoyed book 1 All endings are also beginnings, we just don t know it at the time

    4 bold stars to The Next Person You Meet in Heaven Everyone wanted a sequel to one of the most beloved books, and Mitch Albom has delivered Briefly, to set the stage, in The Five People You Meet in Heaven, we met Eddie, a rough and gruff war veteran turned mechanic who passed away in the act of saving a little girl named Annie Eddie s trip to heaven involved questions and answers about the meaning of life In this follow up, Annie s story is told After the accident that took Eddie s life, Annie has visible scars but no memory of what happened Not only does she have memory loss, she is haunted by what the truth may reveal It consumes her Annie later becomes an adult and is about to be married when another accident occurs leaving her on a journey to heaven where she reunites with Eddie He shares what he has learned about life with Annie An emotionally charged and beautifully written read and filled with clever twists, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven is a huggable book with important lessons for us all I took away a reminder of that old saying when one door closes, a window opens in its place Filled with hope and all heart, Mitch Albom once again addresses the meaning of life and proves his point with flourish Thank you to Harper Books for the complimentary ARC All opinions are my own My reviews can also be found on my blog

    4 uplifting starsMy reviews can be seen here was once told in a college Philosophy course that we, as humans are made of energy The professor then went on to say that energy can never be destroyed and asked us to form our own conclusions about what he had just said As I read The Next Person You Meet in Heaven, I could not help but recall that professor and his words.Perhaps we would all like to believe, well probably to know, the existence of an afterlife, one where our joys would be unending and our sorrows and mistakes left behind This is the place that Mitch Albom created for a girl named Annie and he takes us through her life with its sadness and misunderstandings, its hurts and recriminations In Annie, we might possibly see our own life We have all made mistakes, sins we would rather not remember, but they are there and at times we beat ourselves up as they flash through our minds and we think how awful we were.As Annie learns, we can be forgiven There are reasons why we are here that perhaps we never really thought about There are people we have come across perhaps for only a minute of time that we have affected in a most positive manner and just like Annie we need to forgive ourselves While we might have done bad things, we also might have done really wonderful things as well.I do appreciate this most uplifting book Sometimes a book can just be what you need and in this case with all the hatred and cruelty that seem to surround us today, this book offered me, along with a few tears, a port in a storm There is never anything wrong with a book that gives you hope Thank you Mr Albom for making me realize that.

    Felt much too strategically concocted A quick follow up whipped up sequel to The Five People You Meet In Heaven.And for heaven s sakethis sequel s core premises is that everything happens for a reason we are all accepted loved forgiven there is always hope and love Flat hallmark writing I was too cynical for it This little book kept me slightly entertained with my naughty scrooge critical mind while sitting on the airplane Not to worry I criticized myself, too, for being aloof cold and harsh I wish I was all flowery positive but I m not I felt nothing.other than manipulated by calculated storytelling of hope, heart inspiration 1.5 stars

    In The Five People You Meet In Heaven, we meet Eddie, a grizzly old war veteran turned amusement park maintenance man who died saving the life of a young girl called Annie Now it s time for Annie s story in this sequel.After Annie s accident, she had no memory of what had happened to her She has been haunted by what the truth might reveal Annie is now an adult and another accident finds her on her own journey to heaven where she will be reunited with Eddie Annie s life has not been easy, but with the five people she meets in heaven, we find the reasons behind this.I really enjoyed reading The Five People You Meet In Heaven so I was happy to see that Mitch Albom had written a sequel to it, but at the same time I was a little apprehensive What if this book was not as good What was I worried about, this book is just as good I did rate the first book 5 stars but this book is a shorter story so that s the reason why I ve just given it 4 stars Mitch Albom knows how to write beautiful stories with marvellous characters There is an underlying message in this story This book can be read as a standalone but I do recommend you read The Five People You Meet In Heaven first.I would like to thank NetGalley, Little Brown Book Group, UK and the author Mitch Albom for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I had a great English teacher back in high school who recommended I read The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and I loved it I also bought the 2000 s film adaptation, which was also very good, using super 8 film segments, music particular to the era and great actors to bring everything to life So, I was glad to discover that there was a sequel released, which tells the story of Annie, the little girl whom Eddie sacrificed his own life for in the first novel The Next Person You Meet in Heaven is a pretty decent sequel that connects both stories, Eddie s and Annie s, together very well Albom shows how the accident Annie was in has altered her life, her childhood experiences with a mean girl, her eventual nursing career and finally her own death I did like the story, but unlike the first book, this sequel was so sentimental that it felt almost sappy With piles of quotes which could rival a Hallmark greeting card or a copy of All Dogs Go to Heaven, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven is almost so cheesy it s hard to take seriously I still liked the book and I loved how consistent Albom is with the characters, though If you enjoyed the first book, you ll definitely want to read this sequel.

    How did I not know a sequel was coming out to my favorite book of all time

    The Next Person follows the formula of its predecessor, The Five People You Meet in Heaven melodramatic flashbacks, greeting card homilies But heaven has been spruced up since we were here last Annie, the little girl from Five People is now a nurse who dies just a few hours after her wedding She zooms around heaven s kaleidoscopic clouds by car, by train, by mattress on some kind of spiritual acid trip, while parts of her body fade in and out Albom notes that nobody can talk when they first arrive, which probably helps cut down on the screaming as new souls realize they ll spend eternity in this massive glob of cotton candy The Next Person is so packed with sweet aphorisms that it s like scrolling through the Instagram account of a New Age masseuse One minute, we re told, Forcing love is like picking a flower then insisting that it grow The next, Just because you see things straight doesn t mean you see them in time And unfortunately To read the rest of this review, go to The Washington Post https entert To watch the Totally Hip Video Book Review of this novel, click here https video
