Well, Mitch Albom did it again. The accident seriously injures Chick, and he enters limbo between Heaven and Earth. He spends one more day with her, reflecting on his childhood, learning about his father who left them, and even more about his mother and himself.

I thought that the story moved rather slowly at times and it was never the kind of book that I found hard to put down. That being said I did want to know how everything would work out. I really had expected this book to fall nicely into the mystery category but I found that it was really more focused on the characters.
There was some mystery to be found but the focus was different than I had expected.
I never connected with any of the characters. Carrie seemed too controlled and distant. As the book progressed, I found that I never really felt anything towards Carrie.
Her backstory was interesting but it never sparked any kind of emotion from me. It was a story that took some big risks and unusual turns.
The story unfolded in a manner that made me want to see it to completion. I liked the idea behind the story but had problems with the characters and pacing of the story. I also thought the ending of the book was rather lackluster and had hoped for something a little more meaningful. I do think that some readers will really enjoy this book.
