5 people you meet in Heaven

Book by Mitch Albom, baru last weekend selesai dibaca.
Menceritakan hari terakhir Eddie, seorang mekanik di Ruby Amusement Park, yang meninggal ketika ingin menyelamatkan a lil girl, whose cart she’s riding in, fell down.
Then, di akherat dia ketemu 5 people — one by one— yang merefleksikan kehidupan dia secara langsung maupun tidak langsung.
they are : The Blue Man, His captain when he was at war, a woman named Ruby (she owned the park once), his wive and lil girl name Tala.

there, before he goes to heaven, he always kept telling people how boring his life is, nevertheless, he also get surprises that he found out, he .accidentely, killed the Blue Man when he was 7, that his captain hit his knee in war (then he becames limp—and his dreams suddenlly vanished), that his father died saving one of his dad’s friend life (he hasn’t spoke to his dad since he was 30’s), that he killed Tala in war.

setiap pertemuannya dengan satu orang, nanti ada chapter yang menceritakan ketika dia berulang tahun.

Anyway, I guess the conclusion of this book is— everything happen for a reason. Ada yang mati, ada yang hidup, seseorang mati (seperti the Blue Man dan Eddie himself) agar seseorang tetap hidup ( Eddi waktu kecil dan little girl di Park itu). Eddie— biarpun “cuma” seorang mekanik like his dad— sebenarnya punya peran aagar rides yang ada di park itu aman untuk orang2x yang mengendarainya.
