The Five People You Meet in Heaven

I finished The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom last night and surprisingly, I quite enjoyed it.  I think what I liked most was the cadence and tone of the narration; it's written in a way that seems like it's meant to be read out loud. The story itself can be taken lightly or deeply, and you don't have to be religious to appreciate its message.  In a nutshell, it's a book about decisions and connections--the ripple effect of the choices you make in life.  A lot of what Albom writes about are things that you already consciously know, but don't think about every day.

For example,
“Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it. You're just passing it on to someone else.”
-Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

It's just nice to be reminded from time to time.


Why pamper life's complexities
When the leather runs smooth 
on the passenger seat?
