Book Review #4 - The First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Albom.

How do I start, hmm. Firstly, I’ll have to make it clear that Mitch Albom is one of my favourite authors and I want to make sure what I write is interesting enough so that you’ll want to read the book as much as I did.

I don’t know how some people read or see Mitch Albom as. But to me, upon reading his books, I have some sort of peaceful emotions because he writes things beautifully. Like a father telling his daughter a story. Yknow? (my personal opinion okay )
So yeah. Here it comes. Im still new. Here’s the review.

POV – Omniscient Point of view. Therefore we could see the characters thoroughly from the beginning to the end. So yeah, instead of 3rd person, I’ll say it’s omniscient POV.

Settings – small city in Coldwater, Michigan. I love the fact that I could ‘experience’ the feelings of being in that place, although im here in Malaysia >.<


Tess : a pretty blonde whom her mother Ruth keeps calling her from heaven.

Katherin Yellin : a lady who first spread the news of her accepting calls from her sister Diane in heaven.

Jack: a chief police who hid the fact from her ex-wife Dorren, who also keeps getting calls from their son in heaven.

Sully: another guy in the city. Lived a great life before everything changed in a second, turning him a guy whom his wife Giselle dead, having to grow his son Jules alone.

Jules : Sully’s son. He wishes he could get those calls too. From her mother, from heaven.

Rays of sunlight and a book about calls from heaven. Hmmm coincidence? I think NOT. Hahaha >.<


I’ll have to say. Like any other characters in the story. I believe it all. That there’s miracle. It could happen, who knows. To see how convinced Tess, Jack, Katherin and the rest who received the phone call, I love this unique miracle.

Sully’s character was pretty mean to me. How could he not accept it when the rest did. At least Pastor Warren was less harsh. He kept it to himself. All the confusion, he prayed in silence.
So there’s a lot of things that happen. Until we found the reason of the calls from heaven in the end. Or is it really from heaven?

I cant say more. Read it,enjoy it :}

*Im always crappy at writing reviews but I love doing them so yeah, I don’t care. I just wish if there’s any of people out there who read my reviews, perhaps you guys could gimme some tips or something. Whatever :3

Thanks for reading.
