    "No soul remembered is ever truly gone." P.S. Mom, I'm still waiting for the phone to ring! ...

    Interesting premise but was let down by the lack of emotional connection I typically feel when reading a Mitch Albom book. Was more of a mystery book then an emotional/inspirational book. ...

    I know that to some people religion is the basis of life and why they are 'here'. I think religion is indeed 'the opiate of the masses', it exists so people don't have to face up to the consequences of their own actions. They can blame it on fate, some old guy up in the sky, or lots of...

    So ready to love this! Mitch Albom's books truly are life-changing and incredibly inspiring; I love each and every one of them. Just realized the release date reads: eleven / twelve / thirteen. edit on Dec 12th, 2013 I am truly, madly, deeply sorry, but this book landed itse...

    A nice, thought provoking little story which is interesting whether you believe in Heaven or whether you do not. Not that the author provides any great solutions as you are left at the end with as many facts as you have at the beginning. The most interesting part to me was what happen...

    I loved the backstory of Alexander Graham Bell as it coincided with the current day story, it has given me the desire to read more about Bell's personal life. My favorite quotes "What is false about hope?" and Faith is believing without the need for proof. I would read this story again...

    ?Desire sets our compass, but real life steers our course.? This was my second novel of Mitch Albom. The first one was The Time Keeper and I love that book, carrying a lot of life lessons. This one, too. Mitch Albom is really one of the master-of-life-lessons writers. The b...

    I was not impressed with this book. Having just read The Five People You Meet in Heaven a few days prior, and loved it, I was expecting more of the same from The First Phone Call From Heaven. Unfortunately, nothing I loved about TFPYMIH carried over into this book. While the theme of T...

    I have read all of Mitch's books: Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Have a Little Faith, For One More Day, and The Time Keeper. I've liked all of them, except The Time Keeper, a lot. The Time Keeper was just okay. This latest, The First Phone Call from Heaven, i...
