The First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Alborn

the first phone call from heaven characters

Wonderful, strange, exotic, not based in a present reality. Albom wraps the story up in a surprising way, giving readers a satisfactory yet thought-provoking conclusion. The plot has a small town on Lake Michigan gaining notoriety when its citizens receive phone calls from their loved ones who have died. Mitch Albom has an uncanny ability to create novels whose central purpose is to make you think over some pretty heavy stuff, but at the same time, they have a plot line that's strong enough to give you a good story on its own. National news reporters are sent in to cover the story.

A captivating story of faith, belief, trust and forgiveness with characters that I was surely attached to, reading their own happiness and grievances in life.

The Well

Could not put this book down. People from all over want to visit this town and hear more about the phone calls that happen every Friday. Those of you who are a Mitch Albom fan will probably like this book too. I don't want to give anything away. It explores the topic of hope and false hope and how easily the line is blurred between the two. You know how at every buffet there is that one enormous piece of chocolate cake? Is it the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax? Some keeps the call a secret but when some choose to talk about it, the news spread like wildfire.

What in life can love not penetrate? Although it deals primarily with Christianity, people of all faiths will find that the story resonates with them. This is not because I'm anti-religion or anything like that, but more because the majority of Christian fiction I've encountered has been a bit too preachy for my taste. I actually logged quite a few quotes from the book on Goodreads because it was just so well written in areas. Are the phone calls real? Also, how good the ones felt that had unresolved feelings about the dead people; maybe they hadn't said all they needed to, etc. .

Book Review: Mitch Albom's 'The First Phone Call from Heaven'

the first phone call from heaven characters

Albom takes this idea of the dead communicating from Heaven by telephone and turns it into a heart warming tale of forgiveness, hope, love, and belief. He is determined to find out, once and for all, if there is a direct line, from the supposed next world, to the one he is living in… Mitch Albom has a way with words. Is he the same person at the end of the novel? When I read the first page of this book, I actually had to stop and take deep breaths. How does she feel about her role? The ending seems like the same situation in John Green's. I have never read any of Mitch Albom's books before, but I found this one very enjoyable.

Book Review: Mitch Albom's 'The First Phone Call from Heaven'

the first phone call from heaven characters

Reporters wanted to collect the source firsthand; police officers were dealing with the crowd; vendors and markets were running out of supplies because this small town was facing an unprecedented prosperity; even the certain kind of cellphone, which was the one those chosen ones used, was out of stock in that others believed that was the only brand which could get a heaven call. Without giving away the plot of the book, there is a beautiful subplot that runs parallel to the main fictional story: the history of Alexander Graham Bell's invention of the telephone, and how it was motivated by Bell's love for his wife who couldn't speak. Albom always delivers in this area. I guessed every beat in the plot before I turned the first page and the book perfectly followed those notes like adding ingredients in a recipe. The mystery is whether this is the great miracle or a hoax.

It is in this small town that eight residents on each Friday begin to receive calls from lost loved ones — voices from beyond that promise that the end is not the end and love is waiting. I've liked all of them, except The Time Keeper, a lot. Naturally, I was looking forward to reading this one, but it turned out to be quite disappointing to say the least. This sometimes happens in sleep. Signal Corp is his basic branch, and Public Affairs is his functional area.
