    Interesting premise but was let down by the lack of emotional connection I typically feel when reading a Mitch Albom book. Was more of a mystery book then an emotional/inspirational book. ...

    Another solid selection from Mitch Albom. Random people in Coldwater, Michigan, begin receiving calls on their cell phones from loved ones who have passed on and are in heaven. Sounds incredible, but they can't help but believe it's a true miracle -- the callers' voices are the voices ...

    I know that to some people religion is the basis of life and why they are 'here'. I think religion is indeed 'the opiate of the masses', it exists so people don't have to face up to the consequences of their own actions. They can blame it on fate, some old guy up in the sky, or lots of...

    The concept of the book was original; grieving people receiving phone calls from their departed loved ones in Heaven. Comforting, reassuring and what grieving people are longing for?..one last connection. But the resolution and the why of it happening fell short for me. There could h...

    I have read all of Mitch's books: Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Have a Little Faith, For One More Day, and The Time Keeper. I've liked all of them, except The Time Keeper, a lot. The Time Keeper was just okay. This latest, The First Phone Call from Heaven, i...

    On the day the world received its first phone call from heaven, Tess Rafferty was unwrapping a box of tea. _________________ I was very lucky to get this book to review it before it is released. I'm a fan of Mitch Albom's books anyways, & this one did not disappoint. Peop...

    I loved the backstory of Alexander Graham Bell as it coincided with the current day story, it has given me the desire to read more about Bell's personal life. My favorite quotes "What is false about hope?" and Faith is believing without the need for proof. I would read this story again...

    In life people either believe in Heaven and an afterlife or they do not. Reading this book, the characters are also split into two camps. There are those who believe they are receiving phone calls from loved ones who are dead and others who dismiss the whole thing as a hoax. But which ...

    How would you feel if you could speak to a deceased love one? Not through a clairvoyant or a Ouija Board; but simply on a telephone. How would it affect your life and that of your community? This is precisely the topic in five-time best-selling author Mitch Albom?s, ?The First Phon...

    Silly, slow, and boring! Reading this turned out to be an utter chore. I?ve loved almost all of Mitch Albom?s books, most especially ?Tuesdays with Morrie?. I?ve loved some of them so much, that we even own a few of the DVDs. Naturally, I was looking forward to reading this o...

    A 4.5. I was a lucky goodreads first reads winner of "The First Phone Call From Heaven" I have always liked Mitch Albom's books. He has a talent for writing books that are heart felt and touching. The First Phone Call From Heaven takes place in Coldwater Michigan. Sully has just got...

    A nice, thought provoking little story which is interesting whether you believe in Heaven or whether you do not. Not that the author provides any great solutions as you are left at the end with as many facts as you have at the beginning. The most interesting part to me was what happen...

    I was not impressed with this book. Having just read The Five People You Meet in Heaven a few days prior, and loved it, I was expecting more of the same from The First Phone Call From Heaven. Unfortunately, nothing I loved about TFPYMIH carried over into this book. While the theme of T...

    ?Desire sets our compass, but real life steers our course.? This was my second novel of Mitch Albom. The first one was The Time Keeper and I love that book, carrying a lot of life lessons. This one, too. Mitch Albom is really one of the master-of-life-lessons writers. The b...

    When I first heard the concept of this book all I could think about was the song by Justin Moore "If Heaven wasn't so far away", which is about what we would do if we could go visit our loved ones in Heaven. It's a favourite song of mine, and therefore, when this book reminded me of it...

    Sometimes, love brings you together even as life keeps you apart. Before you read the book, don't forget to ask yourself this: How much do you believe in the story? The First Phone Call from Heaven is one of my favorite books written by my favorite author, Mitch Albom. His books ...
