Good morning Ms Ma, today I would like
to introduce a book to you. It’s called The
Five People You Meet in Heaven is a novel by
Mitch Albom. It follows the life and death of a
maintenance man named Eddie. It was
published in 2003 by Hyperion.
The story began with a sad ending. Eddie,
a maintenance worker at an amusement park,
was only minutes away from his death. All
endings are also a beginnings, the ‘ending’
attracted me with a countdown of how Eddie
spent his last moments doing his work as his
days were enduring. It happened in a flash
when Eddie was trying to save a little girl
from a falling cart of the Ferris Wheel. But
before Eddie could figure out what was
happening, he arrived at a place that he
had never expected—the heaven. Where he
encounters five people who significantly impacted
him while he was alive. They are Marguerite,
Joseph Corvelzchik or The Blue Man, The Captain,
Ruby and Emile.
Eddie learns the true meaning of his life
when he confronts five people in heaven
from his past. There are moments he needs
to relive and others he never even knew
happened. These are somewhat shocking and
breathtaking for both Eddie and the reader.
The part I like most in this book is the
chapter—Epilogue. This chapter was written
with the scene of the amusement park when
Eddie saved the little girl. The author
emphasized again on how life and death form
parts of the whole life and he ended the chapter
with my favourite sentence in this book —“The
world is full of stories, but stories are all one.”
This book is particularly good for those who feel
lost and confused in his or her life. This book shows
people with great ideas and gives advice to your life.
It will help you to shape your character and your
attitude towards life and people around you.
After reading this book, I know that there are no
regrets in life, just lessons to be learnt in life. It is a great...
