Mitch Albom is an author, playwright, and screenwriter who has written seven books, including the international bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie, the bestselling memoir of all time. His first novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, was an instant #1 New York Times bestseller, as were For One More Day, his second novel, and Have a Little Faith, his most recent work of nonfiction. All four books were made into acclaimed TV films. Albom also works as a columnist and a broadcaster and has founded seven charities in Detroit and Haiti, where he operates an orphanage/mission. He lives with his wife, Janine, in Michigan.
Let me start by saying I HATE to give a review like this, but I want my blog readers to know the truth about how I feel about the books that I read.
To say I was very disappointed with Mitch's new book would be an understatement. It took me less then two hours to read it and I still found it a small waste of my TIME. I did find that I liked the characters and I was rooting for them! Mitch has some of the best books out there, I LOVED Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven. But this parable was just not my cup of tea. Maybe his next book will be a home run!
