The Next Person You Meet in Heaven Reviews
While I did read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" before reading this sequel, it's not necessary to read "Five People" in order to understand "the Next …" It definitely would make your reading experience richer to have read both books, but if you don't have access to the first, you can go ahead and read the sequel and then go back for the first one later.
I enjoyed the experience of discovering what this book is about - what happens and why - way too much to in any way compromise another read ...more
*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.
I read The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom in 2013 when my reading tastes were very different so I was a little apprehensive going into this sequel. I would suggest that this is more of a companion novel to be honest as it is of course useful to have read the previous one, it isn't necessary.

Thank you HarperCollins publishers for the advanced readers copy of this book . It was the perfect sequel to The Five People You Meet in Heaven . I understand Annie's feelings of the constant mistakes in her life and not seeing them as a path to where she'll find peace and happiness . Mitch Albom waiting for the next book always
received an e-arc from edelweiss. review might contain some mild spoilers
So this book is a sequel to the the five people you meet in heaven, not really directly so you could read this a standalone. It is a part of the world of that book. And somehow it's was kinda weak when it's compared to its predecessor and I was disappointed.
As far as I can remember, The Five People You Meet in Heaven is one of my favorite Albom books (together with the timekeeper and the magic strings of frankie presto). B ...more
