The Next Person You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom

I recently re-read The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom because I was preparing to read the sequel, The Next Person You Meet In Heaven, which was published 15 years after his initial award winning book.

In reading the first book again, I was able to appreciate the life lessons learned in through the imagination of what an afterlife might look like. Simply written, easily read, but powerful impact.

Last night, I started to read the 224 page sequel. And I could not put it down. It took me 2 hours to take it all in. The Next Person was just as captivating as the original. And it was written similarly - a developing backstory that evokes as much emotion as the on-going encounters in the foreground.

The Next Person You Meet In Heaven has a new set of life lessons. And similar to the first Five, the Next is deeply relatable.

My suggestion is to read these two in tandem.
