Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Albom has a nose for ‘thin places’: places where the boundary between secular and sacred is porous, and ultimate meaning is easier to encounter… This brisk, page-turner of a story [is] another winner from Albom.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A beautifully rendered tale of faith and redemption that makes us think, feel, and hope--and then doubt and then believe, as only Mitch Albom can make us do.” (Garth Stein, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain)

“Beautiful and smart. Perhaps the most stirring and transcendent heaven story since Field of Dreams.” (Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook and The Good Luck of Right Now)

The internationally bestselling and inspirational author of Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven, returns with his most moving, surprising and compelling novel yet.

Ce récit est prenant et sa fin géniale. Je ne trahirai pas l'auteur en la donnant mais elle est juste, morale, et me laisse avec un sentiment positif.

I bought this with the intent of reading it later.. but, just wanted to read a bit of it so I could figure out when to read it. Before I knew it.. I'd read the whole book. lmao. It was a very fast read. Easily finished it before I went to bed. I started it around two PM. I had to keep reading it as I was positive I'd figured out the ending. Good grief.. I could not have been more wrong! The ending TOTALLY shocked me. I won't write a spoiler.. but, I love how the author finished the book. Your heart just goes out to the main character and his son. The characters were extremely well crafted and they become totally "fleshed" out over the course of the book.

One can easily see how the claim that so many folks from the same area had all received phone calls from "heaven" from their loved ones.. would put every person out there on the path to a little town in the middle of no where.. in hopes that they too.. could speak with their loved ones who have crossed over.

This book is not religious. I think that was the biggest surprise. It's about what may lay on the "other" side.. but, takes no mankind fixed religion over any other. It's inspirational without being preachy. Totally enjoyed it. In some ways.. It brought it's own comfort. And, any book that can do that.. is one that deserves an audience!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enthralling, Inspiring, and Intriguing 27 mai 2015

Mitch Albom has developed a stellar career in writing thoughtful and imaginative books that bring wisdom and inspiration to the reader (see The Five People You Meet in Heaven, One More Day, and Tuesdays with Morrie, for example). The First Phone Call from Heaven follows quite reasonably in this vein of meaningful literature. Though the story is fictional, it bears the ring of possibility and touches the heart and soul throughout.
The plot centers on the sudden onset of phone calls from deceased loved ones received by a handful of people in the small town of Coldwater, Michigan. The voices on the phone are unmistakably those of these beloved spirits and provide short but powerful comments about life and the afterlife to the recipients. As word leaks out, reporters, photographers, believers, and protestors descend on the town creating their own chaos and questions. Are these calls really being made from Heaven? Are they legitimate? Do they prove the existence of a Heavenly afterlife? Are they some kind of elaborate hoax? Why would someone do such a thing? How could it be? Why are all the calls to residents of one area and always on Fridays? Why do some who long for contact with their lost loved ones not favored with calls?
If you enjoy your fiction with a big dose of inspiration, this book is for you. I found the mystery to be quite involving even as I was touched deeply by the feelings of the characters in this unlikely story.
Considered simply as a mystery story, the book delivers interesting and sympathetic characters, some believable red herrings, a strong sense of time and place, and a couple of unexpected twists and turns. Considered as an inspirational discussion, the book delivers a good number of "wow" moments, unexpected insights about spiritual matters, and pithy points of wisdom. Taken together, there is much to recommend in this book. Whether you believe spirits can contact people living physical lives or you maintain a skeptical or unbelieving attitude, I heartily recommend you get this book and read it with an open mind. It may change your thinking and it will definitely caress your heart.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Novel about Communicating with the Afterlife 14 mars 2015
Par FCRichelieu - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
From his Tuesdays with Morrie to this latest novel, Mitch Albom has proven himself to be an excellent storyteller. I was keen to take a look when I saw this new title. At the same time, I also wondered if he had written one novel too many about communicating with the afterlife.

In this latest novel, he employs a familiar pattern that he has used in quite a few of his novels before. He tells the stories of a number of persons, mostly unrelated, while developing in parallel. The different stories would converge at some point, of course. In the meantime, he is so good at creating suspense that the reader is kept on the edge of his seat. Once you pick up his book, you want to read through it from cover to cover. On top of that, the characters he creates and the story that he tells reflect a deep understanding of human nature. One cannot help but empathise with his characters.

Yes, this is another novel about communicating with the afterlife. That thought somewhat turned me off at first. Should someone with Albom's creative writing talent not at least try telling a story about something else? That said, I must say that there are enough twists and turns in the story to keep one captivated.

In short, this is an engrossing novel that I would recommend. I hope that he would try writing on a different subject in future, though.

This book was so different from any inspirational book I've ever read that it just blew me away. It reads like non-fiction, until you get into the story and there is more than one story being told. The main character is Sullivan "Sully" Harding, a grief stricken former military pilot, who lost his wife and his career at the same time. He has returned home to care for his son Jules, and has to take a job with whoever will hire him. Then there are Tess Rafferty, Jack Sellers, Katherine Yellen and several others who have all received phone calls from loved ones who have passed on. How? Why these people? Who would even try to do this? Sully is determined to find out, his son wants to talk to his mother and if its true Sully knows that his wife would have called Jules.

Lives will change, some people will believe, others will not but the town of Coldwater, Michigan will never be the same.

This book really makes you think - what if it really happened. We are all aware of what happens in this country when a "miracle" happens or even a major disaster. People have to see for themselves, become involved, live the experience. How much more would that happen if we were being contacted by loved ones from heaven? Just imagine the furor, what it would be like in such a small town. Well, you don't have to think, you can read about it, even live it. This story becomes real and takes on a life of its own. Everyone learns something and you will too.

Some days you simply need a feel good story. A story that will restore your faith in the universe. And that is the key The First Phone Call From Heaven - Faith. The first phone call is received by Tess Rafferty who happens to live in the small town of Coldwater, Michigan. It is from her deceased mother; and the call's message brings much comfort to Tess. Shortly thereafter, a select few other residents of the town receive calls of their own from a deceased relative, friend, or business associate. Are these calls real? Can they be real? Is there truly a hot-line to heaven? As news of the calls spreads the local police as well as all denominations of the local clergy find themselves thrust into the center of attention. On the other side of this reality is Sullivan Harding. His story is one of despair and he tries to shield his young son from believing that his deceased mother will call him on a toy phone. Sullivan sets out to prove that this entire scenario is a hoax. But with the town becoming overrun with believers, news reporters, and protesters he has a tough time.

This story is enchanting, humorous, serious, and believable. The characters are finely drawn and soon become old friends. Overall an easy read and an uplifting one. The story itself will have you second guessing the verity of the phone calls but the ending will have you believing that those on the 'other side' are listening, if not communicating.
