Like most of his books Mr. Albom makes you evaluate and think about your life or life and death in general.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This is another thought-provoking tale from the inimitable Mitch Albom. This is in effect a modern-day parable revealing the folly in wanting to control time. The point is made that humans are the only animals that measure time, and it has become for us a curse. There is a plan, and it is never too late or too soon."

Did not enjoy it as much... I thought it was a bit boring but I did enjoy the meaning behind the story. I am eager to read other books Mitch Albom has written

My favorite book from Mitch Albom. It really makes you think about what you are doing with the time you have left in your life. I read it twice and if I ever found it in a book store I would buy it in a heart beat.

Now I have loved Mitch Albom since high school. His books are so moving and emotional. But this one didn't quite make it. The idea was a neat one and message from the story is clear. It just didn't reach me like his other books do.

Another brilliant work from Mitch Albom. Once again I paused to ask "Is my life counting for something?"

It was good but I found myself wanting to rush to the end and not concerned with savoring the book like I usually do with his books.

This book is really amazing, just like Mitch's other books. If you've already read this one make sure to check out the others! They're all fabulous and very meaningful.

Compared to his other works, this did not leave a lasting impression. I cried from his book, One More Day. The Tuesdays with Morrie and the Five people you meet in Heaven was the two that introduced me to his work. I felt like he tried too hard in this work whereas the other ones just flowed. It could be because the storyline is split between three characters that I felt no attachment to any. But I digress, I didn't enjoy this book compared to his others.

I liked the book, compared to his others- not as much. If it were a book written by anybody else I would have enjoyed it more. The beginning was slow but it ended strongly. His writing normally brings me to tears. Not this time. A satisfying ending.
