From the Publisher:

Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him, as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination. It’s a place where your life is explained to you by five people, some of whom you knew, others who may have been strangers. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie’s five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his "meaningless" life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: "Why was I here?"

Sigh...this book just went too fast. I could barely put the book down once I started on it, and before I knew it I was done. This book was very interesting and presented a fresh new take on heaven and was written so vividly that I could practically picture what Eddie was seeing. I can't wait to read more by Mitch Albom if this is any indication of the quality of his writing.

I will be passing this book on to a few friends and family and will release it after they have all had their crack.

I definitely enjoyed this one. It had its share of twists and turns, which made it a page turner...which is sort of a bad thing, since it's so short! Before I knew it, I was done with the book!
