THE 5 PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN

When I'm already working, I elude to read books because I know when I start to read one, I can't stop reading until I finish it. But Mitch Albom makes me curious to read his books. I guess you already know him. He is the author of the international bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie, as well as six other books including this book THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN. Moreover, he works as a newspaper columnist and a broadcaster, and serves on numerous charitable boards. He lives with his wife, Janine, in Michigan.

The book is dedicated to Edward Beithman, his beloved uncle, who gave him his first concept of heaven. It's a story about a man named Eddie and it begins at the end, with Eddie dying in the sun. It might seem strange to start a story with an ending. But all endings are also beginnings.

I just bought this book this morning. I'll see if it would make me cry. Actually the books of Mitch Albom are books John Lyod Cruz recommended to his screen love partner Bea Alonzo.

Hindi ko masyado kilala si mitch albom at mrs. t. Buti ka pa nakapanood ng movie hango sa libro niya.

Hindi ko pa naumpisahan basahin poy pero i happened to read that portion. nakakagalak no, na-include ang pilipinas sa content ng international na libro.
