The Next Person You Meet in Heaven Reviews
I was a latecomer to the Mitch Albom party, discovering the prequel to this book (The Five People You Meet In Heaven) through a very good book friend only a month ago.
I have to say I loved The Five People You Meet In Heaven, but I ADORED The Next Person You Meet In Heaven, and devoured it in one day. Mitch’s writing is just beautiful, descriptive and highly emotive. I smiled, I cried, I sobbed. Anyone who has suffered loss of any kind will find some connection, some solace even in these two boo ...more
“The Next Person” follows the formula of its predecessor, "The Five People You Meet in Heaven": melodramatic flashbacks, greeting-card homilies. But heaven has been spruced up since we were here last. Annie, the little girl from "Five People" is now a nurse who dies just a few hours after her wedding. She zooms around heaven's kaleidoscopic clouds by car, by train, by mattress on some kind of spiritual acid trip, while parts of her body fade in and out. Albom notes that “nobody can talk when the ...more
Felt much too strategically concocted!!!!
A quick follow up - whipped-up sequel to
“The Five People You Meet In Heaven”.
And for heaven’s sake...this sequel’s core premises is that ‘everything’ happens for a reason:

Not to worry - I criticized myself, too, for bein ...more
I’ve been an enormous fan of the work of Mitch Albom for a few years and I’ve read all of his books - each one has taught me different valuable life lessons, everything from finding that little bit of extra empathy for people, to really listening and finding understanding for what matters to us all individually.
He is just a wonderful, wonderful writer and so blessed as a story teller.

I had a great English teacher back in high school who recommended I read The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and I loved it. I also bought the 2000's film adaptation, which was also very good, using super 8 film segments, music particular to the era and great actors to bring everything to life. So, I was glad to discover that there was a sequel released, which tells the story of Annie, the little girl whom Eddie sacrificed his own life for in the first novel.

I received this book as an advanced reader's copy and for my honest review, I've enjoyed every page of this book from beginning to end. I have read The Five People You Meet in Heaven years ago and have enjoyed it then and it was nice to see where this book started pick up to where the other book left off with Annie and Eddie reuniting after Eddie's death. This book taught so many life lessons especially to never take life for granted, cease every moment and count your blessings because you never ...more
