A thought provoking Christian story of love, life and death, the afterlife, and spiritual warfare.

I am dead. This is my funeral.

Elijah turned to look at Castiel who looked back at him and nodded gently.

And in that instant everything changed, in ways that Elijah Hael and those who read his story could never anticipate or imagine.

Enter a world of intrigue, suspense, wonder and living energy where our souls are battled over, unseen by many but experienced by all.


Reaction (Book)

The book was all about Eddie’s journey towards heaven. Eddie died saving a young girl in the amusement park where he works. And with that, he went to heaven and met five people who taught him five lessons in life.

The book itself is a great read providing a lot of lessons about life. I like how the author portrays the idea of heaven. How it tackled on the idea of why others die because of you and that everything has its own form of balance. I really got the lesson very perfectly on that.

The book has a very inspiring story but I find it so hard to read because it’s a slow pace story. It wasn’t that effective enough to catch my attention. After a lot of struggles I finally was able to finish reading it after an almost dreadful week.

Reaction (Author & Plot)

Mitch has always never failed on inspiring people. I honestly liked the story’s plot. But unfortunately he wasn’t able to catch my attention, for the story is very slow paced and a bit boring.

And I always adore how he uses very easy to understand words. The shifting of characters and locations are very easy to understand, I haven’t come to the point wherein I got lost from the story and ended up confused. It was properly executed but unfortunately, it wasn’t that effective on catching my full attention.

Final Thoughts

I maybe wasn’t able to enjoy the story that much but who knows? You might enjoy it as much as I do.
