In the meantime, you get your own neat little Heaven scape though. Both averted, subverted and somewhat inverted. At the beginning of the story Eddie attempts to save a little girl called Amy or Annie at the pier during an accident, but dies in the process unknowing if he was successful as the last thing he comprehended was the grip of child hands He finds out at the very end of the story that the hands belonged to Talla, a girl he unknowingly burned to death in the Philippines during World War 2, and that she was pulling him into the afterlife.
So although one infant died, another lived, and he died saving the one that lived, making it a weird inversion. During World War IIEddie uses a captured flamethrower to raze the small prison camp he and his comrades just broke out of and in the process attempts to enter a burning hut under the impression that someone is in inside it before being crippled by his captain to save his life.
Turns out there was a little girl in the burning hut. He meets her in Heaven. Heaven is a mixture of this and Mundane Afterlife: The conditions of the prison camp for the captured Americans.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven (Literature) - TV Tropes
They share a small hut with no beds, have minimal meals, are subject to disease and mistreatment, forced to work in a nearby mine and a sick and emaciated prisoner who under performs is executed. The American soldiers also engage in war crimes - they shoot all the Japanese involved, even the one who was sneaking them bread, and another when they burn up a hut that has children in it, albeit unknowingly.
Happens a lot in the Made-for-TV Movie. Eddie is in one in the Philippines. Eddie, after he returns from fighting in World War II. This Is My Story: The people Eddie meets usually give him stories of their lives and how they were relevant to his.
But when those senses weaken another one comes to life Memory becomes your partner. Life has to end, Eddie I vaguely remember when exactly I read this but I remember I read this couple of months before I "Lost love is still love, Eddie. I vaguely remember when exactly I read this but I remember I read this couple of months before I broke up with my current-boyfriend and it was around the end of the year.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven (TV Movie ) - IMDb
Maybe September-October to November. It is significant to know when I read because it is one of the reasons why this book just stays in my mind. I pictured myself as Eddie. An old man with so many bruises physically and emotionally draging the last breath he had to carry before he died and saved a little girl's life.
With a cause he died which for me is amazing!
Mitch Albom's 'The Five People You Meet in Heaven'
Then he met the five people that bumped into his life for a second and even for a lifetime that he might didn't remember or know them before when he was alive. These five people were there to answer all of his unanswered questions about his life and why God had purposes with him in his life even when he thought that he had no value at all - This too amazes me still; have you EVER wondered why are you here on earth? And the story evolved from there.
And all the classic questions that I believe WE all are facing now are written so nicely by Albom. With jokes, with poems, with simple everyday words. Albom didn't preach within this book which I think it is the risk of writing such subject - and the fact that he didn't preach makes it universal for all races and religions to read. And be spiritually touched. And so how does this effect on me with the broke-up? I was angry all the time and didn't understand why I was treated so bad by a man and how I thought I have not a value to go on.
Then a friend's death which rolled me back to the time I read this book in the first place reminds me of how life goes on and how life NEEDS to go on.
