Product Description

Product Description

Un libro muy original, con toques de espiritualidad, nos cuenta la historia de Eddie un hombre de 83 años que trabaja en el parque de atracciones de una pequeña ciudad de provincias norteamericana. Su vida acaba de forma trágica. Eddie se encuentra ahora... en el Cielo. El Paraíso aparece como el lugar donde, por fin, entendemos el sentido de nuestra vida en la Tierra. Así se encuentra con las cinco personas que más han influido en su vida, de forma directa pero también indirecta, sin que él, en muchas ocasiones, se diera cuenta.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE TAPESTRY OF LIFE... 4 Feb 2006
By Lawyeraau - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Written in clear, spare prose, this slender tome is a pleasant little book that can easily be read in one sitting. It is a sentimental look at life and the hereafter. This book, the Spanish text edition of "The Five People You Meet in Heaven", focuses on an individual named Eddie, who is the chief maintenance mechanic for the rides at a seaside amusement park called Ruby Pier. It is around him that the book revolves. Eddie is a somewhat embittered and lonely old man who tragically dies on his eighty third birthday, while trying to save a child from certain death when an amusement ride comes loose from its moorings.

When he dies, Eddie meets five people in heaven. Each of them imparts a special lesson about Eddie's life. Each lesson allows him to understand the meaning of his life a little better. The five people that he meets show Eddie, and the reader, how we are all connected, and that the smallest acts can often have great impact on others, both positively and negatively. The book's bottom line message is that everyone has a purpose in life, whether or not it is readily apparent to one. It is as if there were a cosmic tapestry, with the life of one interwoven with the life of another, the threads crossing unknowingly but creating a larger picture.

Although the author definitely manipulates the sensibilities of the reader, that is not necessarily a bad thing. The book, however, is somewhat predictable and, at times, a little reminiscent of a treacly Hallmark greeting card, both schmaltzy and touching. It was no surprise that the book ended up as a Hallmark Hall of Fame production and turned into a made-for-TV movie. The film is quite enjoyable, and Jon Voight is terrific in the lead role. I actually saw the film before I read the book, and the film whetted my appetite for the book. While not as good as the author's other book, "Tuesdays with Morrie", it is still a book that will resonate, if only because many will find its simple message comforting. Profundity, after all, may be found in simplicity.

5.0 out of 5 stars El libro mas hermoso que he leido.. 28 Mar 2005
By Wanda Rodz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Este libro es la respuesta a mil preguntas sobre la vida despues de la vida. Tuve la dicha de encontrar este libro en un momento dificil de mi vida, al perder a alguien muy querido y mi cabeza llenarse de mil preguntas y dudas. Lo lei en unas 4 horas y poco a poco fui sintiendo una paz y una conformidad inexplicables. Si quieres entender...debes leerlo. La respuesta de tu vida.....esta en Cielo!

2.0 out of 5 stars Muy mala traduccion / Very poor Translation 26 Oct 2008
By X Sloane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I borrowed this book from the library in Spanish since they didn't have the original English version available. Although I liked the story (is good, not great), the translation was very poor, many parragraphs throughout the book had to be read by context, since the words didn't make sense by themselves. It almost seemed as if they had used a translation software program to do the work for them.

La traduccion es muy mala. El libro en si esta bien, aunque no es la gran cosa, pero hay partes en las que uno lee por el contexto ya que las palabras no tienen sentido entre si, tanto asi, que parece que usaron un programa de computadora para hacer el trabajo de traduccion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magnifico 12 Feb 2007
By Lupe Vasquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Este libro es magnifico para aquellos que todavia estan en la oscuridad sobre the vida despues de la mierte. Yo perdi a mi mama en 2005 y tuve muchas dudas...hay un cielo...estara feliz. Despues de leer este libro, me senti mas calmada...con paz. Albom pinta un cielo aceptable para todos...el cielo depende de lo que uno considera el cielo. Para mi mama, es un lugar donde te vistes elegantemente and vas a lugares a compartir risas, amistad, etc...esto es lo que hacia mi mama feliz y el cielo es el lugar donde estas completamente feliz. Albom nos muestra una vida despues de la muerte aunque en forma de cuento. Mi unica critica es el principio del libro que camina lento pero uno tiene que tener paciencia para llegar a lo bueno
