Whenever the word heaven comes to our mind, we start thinking about it as a place that is lush green and full of all the luxuries of life. Thus heaven is like an ideal dream world that we want to enter after we die. It is the hope of getting to heaven which makes us do all the good deeds in life. Mitch Albom has changed the concept completely as he portrays the afterlife in a unique way of his own. Firstly we meet an old man named Eddie who used to be a soldier when he was young.
In his old age, he started working at an amusement park where he repairs the rides and takes care of other such things. Even at the age of 83, he was quite active and physically healthy. One day he saw a girl falling from a cart so without a second thought in his mind, he jumped at the little girl to save her life. He saved the life of the young girl by losing his own. Later he woke up in the heavens and he was quite surprised to see that heaven was not according to his thoughts and imagination. Instead of an awesome green land, it was a place where he met five people.
Those five people started discussing different things about his life on earth in a different ways. They told Eddie, the benefits and drawbacks of his different needs. In the end, it is up to him to decide whether he has done justice to his life on earth or not. Have a Little Faith and The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto have almost similar philosophies in them. The author presents in a way that he makes us believe these philosophies.
