the five people you meet in heaven

I just finish reading Mitch Albom's "the five people you meet in heaven."

The story is about Edward (Eddie), a war veteran and a maintenance worker at Ruby Pier amusement park. He dies trying to save the life of a little girl from a falling ride. When he awakens in the afterlife, he encounters five people with ties to his corporeal existence who help him understand the meaning of life.

First Person: The Blue Man - The man who died trying to save little Eddie from from hitting his car.


Second
Person: The Captain - Who sacrificed his life so Eddie and the other soldiers will survive.

Third
Person: Ruby - Former owner of the Ruby Pier, who teaches Eddie to forgive his father.

Fourth
Person: Marguerite - Eddie's beloved wife.

Fifth Person: Tala - The child whom Eddie saw and tried to save in the nipa hut in the Philippines.


A very nice and inspirational book... Not really a bookworm type of person but I find the book interesting on first glance... hehehe...

And now I am reading 'Shabanu' Daughter of the Wind by Suzanne Fisher Staples. I'll post the story about it when I'm done reading... *winks*

"Live life to the fullest"
