There are simple things in life that could mean something so important, yet our society doesn’t seem to notice it. Well, in this novel, it is the perfect example of that. Throughout the book, The Five You Meet In Heaven, an eye catching quote was stated. The author Mitch Albom mentions, “Nothing important. No bank statements. No insurance policies. Just a black bow tie, a Chinese restaurant menu, an old deck of cards, a letter with an army medal, and a faded Polaroid of a man by a birthday cake, surrounded by children.” Each of those items represent an important character in the novel. For some background knowledge, The Five People you Meet in Heaven is a novel written by Mitch Albom.

Everything works out in the end and he is reunited with his one true love, Marguerite, at the pier with lovely children galloping all around.

Eddie the matenience man of Ruby Pier carnival seems like just typical old man, who struggles with the idea that he never lived up to his potential. However, after he dies, he is able to see his life through a different perspective, one of eternity, and realizes how unique and important his life has been. This closely echoes the truth found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church which says that only in heaven with Christ will we find our true identity and meaning of life. 1 Death is only the beginning for Eddie and his journey through the five “heavens” of people that his life has impacted demonstrates how intricately woven together every humanity is. As pilgrims, our view of suffering and day to day actions constricts our ability to see how God truly weaves human messiness together to create a beautiful tale of redemption. So, we must live for the destination, not for the journey, leaning on hope instead of complete understanding.

In the Gerneral Prologue poem there were about twenty-nine pilgrims. Each one of the pilgrims had different characteristic. However, there are a few pilgrims that I would not travel with such as: the miller, the summoner, and the shipman. The first pilgrim I would not travel with would be the miller because he has a big mouth, he steals, and he make threats to people. In the poem, it states “his mouth as greet was a great forneys” (Line 559). Also, the miller often steal from people. The poem also states “Wel Knoude he stelen corn and tollen thries” (Line 563).

The story of the Kingdom of Heaven is set during the Crusades of the 12th century, and is basically about the life of Balian, a French blacksmith, who defends the Kingdom of Jerusalem against the Muslims and reclaims the city from the Christians. In this story, I could travel back in time to experience life during the era of the Crusades and learn more about the perspective of duty between the Christians and Muslims.
Each perspective is held within a chapter which, when the characters move away from each other, allows the author to leave minor cliff-hangers at the end of each chapter. While six of the characters from this first book are from the same family, the perspective is shifted around in preceding books. Death is common is this book and it’s was one of the best things about it because it played well to the realism of the time that is depicted. Main characters are not safe like in other novels I have read and this made for very exciting reading. Self preservation is often the cause for character splits and confrontations, and by the end of the book characters you assumed you would be attached too for some time are left headless and gutless or simply gone.
