Synopsis (Credit: www.amazon.co.uk)
An elderly amusement park maintenance worker named Eddie who, while operating a ride called the Free Fall, dies while trying to save a young girl who gets in the way of a falling cart that hurtles to earth.
Eddie goes to heaven, where he meets five people who were unexpectedly instrumental in some way in his life. While each guide takes him through heaven, Eddie learns a little bit more about what his time on earth meant, what he was supposed to have learned, and what his true purpose on earth was.

Hugely disappointing after Tuesdays with Morrie. There are far too many clichés and (often predictable) contrivances. Only snippets remind one of the capability of the author.
Having said that, there are some truths to be found among the sugar and I don't regret having read the book. It's good to be reminded that everyone has a story and that we should appreciate one another.
