THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN is a wonderfully moving fable that addresses the meaning of life, and life after death, in the poignant way that made TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE such an astonishing book. The novel's protagonist is an elderly amusement park maintenance worker named Eddie who, while operating a ride called the 'Free Fall', dies while trying to save a young girl who gets in the way of a falling cart that hurtles to earth. Eddie goes to heaven, where he meets five people who were unexpectedly instrumental in some way in his life. While each guide takes him through heaven, Eddie learns a little bit more about what his time on earth meant, what he was supposed to have learned, and what his true purpose on earth was. Throughout there are dramatic flashbacks where we see scenes from his troubled childhood, his years in the army in the Philippines jungle, and with his first and only love, his wife Marguerite. THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN is the perfect book to follow TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE. Its compellingly affecting themes and lyrical writing will fascinate Mitch Albom's huge readership.

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?"

Will you do my eulogy? With those words, Mitch Albom begins his long-awaited return to non-fiction. His journey to honour the last request of a beloved clergyman ultimately leads him to rekindle his own long-ignored faith. Albom spends years exploring churches and synagogues, the suburbs and the city, the "us" versus "them" of religion. Slowly, he gravitates to an inner-city pastor of a crumbling church that houses the homeless, and is stunned at how similar belief can be. As his own beloved cleric slowly lets go, Albom writes his final farewell, having learned that a faithful heart comes in many forms and places.

◎ 繼《最後14堂星期二的課》之後,作者艾爾邦再次說出一個溫柔的故事,把人物描寫得深刻、豐富、溫暖而有智慧,讓人讀後念念不忘。 一個在遊樂園裡工作的老工人艾迪,退伍後就待在家鄉,每天重複同樣的工作。 他曾經想繼續升學,曾經想四處遊歷,然而他怨怪自己在戰爭中殘廢了的腿,怨怪那個性沈默然而暴躁易怒的父親,害得他放棄夢想,困在這個海灘小鎮。 他經常做惡夢,夢到同樣的大火。至親所愛都已過世,他剩下回憶作伴。他的生活,蒼白而無趣。可是,他仍然每天做著維修工作,就算不耐煩也還是會為小朋友做個小玩具。 83歲生日這一天,他為了救一個小女孩而喪了命。 上了天堂後,艾迪遇見五個曾經出現在他生命裡的人。這五人逐一說出自己的故事,說出他們是何時在人間與艾迪相遇,以及艾迪要在他們身上學習的功課。 艾迪逐漸領悟:原來,自己的生命裡一直都有別人的生命;而別人的故事與自己的故事,會在最無法預料的時空,產生交集。 作者以想像作為一種顏色,為你描繪了一種可能的天堂;他也以安靜作為一種語言,訴說出最滔滔不絕的情感。 這個故事深刻而有餘韻,它含有一股罕見的魔力,會讓你想要重新看待自己,看待人世。 假如你認為自己微不足道,讀過這本書後你會明白:每一個人都是重要的。我們來到人間,是為了與別人相遇。

Heaven can wait. In the meantime...why not go to Hell? Every once in a while a little book comes along that sheds light on our desire for intimacy, our determination to grow spiritually, and our collective yearning to define the boundaries of the soul. The Five People You Meet in Hell is not that little book. A sensitive everyman, Edgy works a meaning-less job at a seaside tourist trap. When a freak accident sends him to "the other side," he encounters a series of strangers compelled to explain the meaning of life. Running the gamut from annoying and incoherent to irritating and hard to follow, these individuals all share a basic desire with virtually every other soul in the universe: to make quick money from a made-for-television movie. The Five People You Meet in Hell is as illuminating as a short-circuited night light and contains all the insight of a chocolate-dipped fortune cookie (with none of the fat). If you've ever died, expect to die, know someone who has died, raise alpacas, collect Hummel figurines, breathe air, or enjoy line dancing, you must buy this book. You will never think about thirteen bucks the same way again. If you experience erections lasting more than four hours, please consult your physician.
