From the Publisher
A specially produced paperback edition--with flaps--of the
phenomenal #1 New York Times bestseller, that has sold
more than six million copies in hardcover
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 loved
Tuesdays with Morrie, will treasure.
