about

In this enchanting sequel to the number one bestseller The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom tells the story of Eddie’s heavenly reunion with Annie—the little girl he saved on earth—in an unforgettable novel of how our lives and losses intersect.

Fifteen years ago, in Mitch Albom’s beloved novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the world fell in love with Eddie, a grizzled war veteran- turned-amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Eddie’s journey to heaven taught him that every life matters. Now, in this magical sequel, Mitch Albom reveals Annie’s story.

The accident that killed Eddie left an indelible mark on Annie. It took her left hand, which needed to be surgically reattached. Injured, scarred, and unable to remember why, Annie’s life is forever changed by a guilt-ravaged mother who whisks her away from the world she knew. Bullied by her peers and haunted by something she cannot recall, Annie struggles to find acceptance as she grows. When, as a young woman, she reconnects with Paulo, her childhood love, she believes she has finally  found happiness.

As the novel opens, Annie is marrying Paulo. But when her wedding night day ends in an unimaginable accident, Annie finds herself on her own heavenly journey—and an inevitable reunion with Eddie, one of the five people who will show her how her life mattered in ways she could not have fathomed.

Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven reminds us that not only does every life matter, but that every ending is also a beginning—we only need to open our eyes to see it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this Sequel from Mitch Albom I recently read the Five people you meet in heaven and this sequel came out soon after. it was good read and I loved it more than the first book. It felt like a Christmas gift from the author to have released this sequel around this time. It makes you think of your family, small decisions you make in your life and how that impact on you and your loved ones and overall how lucky you are to have them around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh Mitch Albom, what do you do to my heart? Oh Mitch Albom, what do you do to my heart? Twice this year, I have had my heart torn out by one of his books. Earlier this year, I read The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto, which is now one of my favourite books of all time. Then, I found out that there would be a sequel to The Five People You Meet in Heaven, another of my favourite books of all time. I decided to reread Five People before I dove into the sequel and I'm so glad that I did. The first book tells the story of someone making the journey into heaven and encountering five people along the way who are all people he knew or met during his live and each person has a lesson to teach him about his life. The second book takes us along a similar journey and the main character is one from the first book (I won't say who so that I don't spoil anything!) When I read the first book, I was on a ferry and I sobbed my heart out in public ... so I made sure I read the second book in the comfort of home, armed with tea and tissues, and let's just say that I'm glad I wasn't such a mess in public this time! Mitch Albom knows how to write a soul-crushing story ... he rips my heart out, stomps on it, and then stomps on it one more time for good measure. Yet I always keep coming back for more because he's such an incredible storyteller. Note: An egalley was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved This Sequel I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel to Mitch Albom's previous work, The Five People You Meet in Heaven. I loved the characters and their experiences, as well the continuation of Albom's perspective on the after life. They are plenty of beautiful quotes which will move you in one way or another. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! I honestly did not expect that I would have read this book in one sitting! I really enjoyed reading this companion novel to The Five People You Meet in Heaven for a few reasons. There were many relatable moments throughout the novel, especially when Annie talks about how she felt throughout several of her life experiences. The relationships between characters are also interesting and although some characters could have been fleshed out a bit more, the inspirational tone of the novel is clear throughout. For some moments, you obviously have to suspend disbelief (some descriptions of the afterlife are a bit bizarre in my opinion for instance) but despite that, another enjoyable read from Mitch Albom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous read - poor binding The book is every bit as good as the first one. The story is beautiful and the ending left me feeling hopeful and elated. My only complaint was that several pages were difficult to read as the binding pulled some pages off centre so the words were difficult to read. Luckily it wasn't the entire book or it would have made reading it a painstaking process.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Pleasant Sequel This book is very similar in style and emotion to its predecessor. You don't have to have read The 5 People You Meet in Heaven recently to follow- book does a nice job recapping! An easy quick read.
