Critical Praise

“Think of Mitch Albom as the Babe Ruth of popular literature, hitting the ball out of the park every time he’s at bat.” –Andrea Sachs, TIME

***

“Mitch Albom is a fearless explorer of the wishful and magical, he is also a devout believer in the power of love. --James McBride, author of The Color of Water

***

“Mitch Albom has never failed to delve into the depths of relationships, the sometimes dark and mysteriously gray areas of our interactions with people. He has pondered what we learn in our day-to-day intersections with those we love and those we hardly know, those anchors we’ve lost, those we’ve simply shaken hands with.” -Bookreporter.com

***

“What I like in his books is that the characters are working-class heroes and everyday people” – Guillaume Musso, best-selling French author – Paris Match, December 2006

***

“Mitch Albom sees the magical in the ordinary” -- Cecilia Ahern

Een mooi verhaal. Ik blijf achter met veel dingen om over na te denken. Want wat is de invloed die ik heb op de mensen om mij heen en welke invloed hebben zij op mij.
Eddie is onderhoudsmedewerker in een attractiepark en hij gaat dood. In de hemel komt hij 5 mensen tegen die hem iets moeten vertellen waardoor hij meer inzicht krijgt in het leven dat hij heeft geleefd en wat voor invloed hij heeft gehad. Fijn boek om te lezen.
