I would like to start this review by thanking Maxx for making me read this one. This book once again showed me that my life motto is true: Everything happens for a reason. That person was supposed to die, you were at that place at that exact moment because it was needed. I do say; I don’t believe in god, but I do believe in fate.
Okay, so this book is about Eddie who is a maintenance guy at Ruby’s Pier. He fixes rides, checks the breaks etc etc. But at one point it goes awfully wrong when he tries to save a girls live. The story stops there and the book immediately forwards to where he is in heaven and who he meets. Only at the end of the book you will learn if he actually saved the girl or not. And I’m not going to tell you, because I don’t do spoilers.
The story has flashbacks to his other birthdays which tells us a lot about the person he’s going to meet. And it also tells you a lot about Eddie himself. The first few people he meets are quite unexpected in my opinion, but there was one, the fourth one, who I knew would be one of the people he was going to meet up there.
This book has some great life stories and also some hidden advise. Forgive, love and accept.
So Maxx.. who do you think will be the five people you meet in heaven?
PS: They made this book into a movie. I haven’t seen it yet, so I don’t know if it’s any good, but if you like you can go check it out!
