NOTE: This audiobook is in Spanish.

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?

    " Who says that the saying "There is a reason for everything" isn't true? Albom's approach on this one, not only gave us hope, it just says that we should just keep on doing what we think is good in life. I remember what Tala said that When Eddie protects kids, he do good for her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya Hallam | 1/28/2014

    " I read this book on a cross country plane ride as few years ago and have never forgotten it. I originally purchased it as a gift for someone else and just thought I'd take it with me and "preview" it. I read the whole thing and enjoyed it much more than I thought I would as this usually isn't my "type" of book. Looking forward to reading more of Mr. Albom's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Harling | 1/19/2014

    " I thought I would like this book more than I did. It had a promising beginning and I finished it quickly, but the book left me feeling disappointed. It was more maudlin and sentimental than inspirational. Maybe I was expecting too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mickygoestoschool | 1/18/2014

    " There's nothing special about the story. Basically it's the title of the book tht makes me want to read it. The character in the book is old, alone and he looks like he miss his wife a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shealyn Kwan-smith | 12/30/2013

    " This is my absolute favorite book. No contest. It is bittersweet, touching, thought-provoking, and most of all, inspirational. It is highly recommended for anyone looking for a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ish Bernabe | 12/9/2013

    " This book is not about death, but of life, and of knowing that whatever you do in the lifetime that was given to you matters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Lynn HR | 12/4/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nagaraj Tanguturu | 11/28/2013

    " Excellent book. Author shows how every events are related to people around us. Using a story author gave excellent presentation of the message, "Whole world is a stage and be the best actor". One can't put down the book until he/she finish it. Enjoy reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Plass | 11/3/2013

    " Very simple read, but oh so depressing. It hit home due to a loss in my family recently, but on a serious side, it was easy without giving much detail of story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan Hull | 5/12/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arian Nikke | 1/16/2013

    " This is the first book that I have read that was written by Mitch Albom, and I would say that he really is inspiring. The story is really good and very interesting and it kept me reading page by page until I haven't notice that it was about to end. It is a very touching story. A must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 12/12/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 11/3/2012

    " A very easy read that offers some interesting insights. Especially since Sean had read it a decade ago and made some notes in the margins. I think I was a little more sentimental about the book because of this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Beztilny | 10/11/2012

    " I liked this book more than I expected to, for some reason it really got me thinking and I like a book that has that effect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 2/15/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rona | 5/22/2011

    " Great Book! makes me wanna die and meet my 5 people already :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sapto | 5/22/2011

    " Life after death is always a mystery for mankind. Mitch Albom describe it vividly and colorful. Years later it could be a story of a new religion; who knows. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kaworu | 5/20/2011

    " Insufferably trite. Hamfisted and cliched and overly sentimental. Simplistic moralizing with a basic dumbed-down writing style.

    Would not recommend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 5/19/2011

    " I was very disappointed in this book. I assumed it was going to be more spiritual than it was. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ardesia | 5/18/2011

    " Non mi è piaciuto per niente.
    È una favoletta mal gestita e personalmente non ci ho trovato dentro nessuna illuminazione esistenziale, ma soltanto molta noia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marium | 5/18/2011

    " i think this was a very inspiring book, and made me realise things when i went out and how random people can affect my life in so many ways, it was a quick read and i recommend people to read it because it was worth it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nychola | 5/17/2011

    " read about 75 % and then never finished.. guess was not interested enough. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 5/15/2011

    " This story makes you think about how you touch others lives and how they touch yours. Some of them are obvious, but others are not. A George Bailey kind of perspective on the actions we take each day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mel | 5/15/2011

    " the life lessons learned were helpful. it's a really good inspirational book if you are looking for something like that. "
