The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom

The book is about retrieval of faith. To God that is. It is about believing in something when our hearts told us to and our brains told us not to.

Amy Penn is my favorite character on the book. A wannabe renowned reporter, a broken woman inside. I particularly followed her transition in becoming reasonable, calm and how she became “human” later on. I love how intense it is when I came to the part where the discovery of origin of the phone calls from heaven happened. I started guessing it from the middle of the book but in the end I found out that it is quite unpredictable.

The ending could have been different though. I would love the ending if it is more mysterious or something that will leave a question in my mind.

Mitch Albom inserted the history of the telephone invention diligently and its timing always hits the target.

I’m recommending the book to older readers or to someone who likes drama.
