The First Phone Call from Heaven tells the story of a small town on Lake Michigan that gets worldwide attention when its citizens start receiving phone calls from the afterlife. Is it the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax? Sully Harding, a grief-stricken single father, is determined to find out. An allegory about the power of belief—and a page-turner that will touch your soul—Albom's masterful storytelling has never been so moving and unexpected.

Readers of The Five People You Meet in Heaven will recognize the warmth and emotion so redolent of Albom's writing, and those who haven't yet enjoyed the power of his storytelling, will thrill at the discovery of one of the best-loved writers of our time.


  • Disappointing.

    By Beatit!
    Read this as a suggestion from a book club member and I found it intriguing at times, but never exciting or the type of book that has me enthralled. I found it to be long and skipped pages were tv news reports were written as I found it to be redundant and gimmicky. At around page 255, the book began to feel corny and hookey. The second last chapter where his revelation about the call from his wife is discovered is queer and awkward as is the last two sentences in that chapter about life, God and belief. I really don't think I could recommend this book to anyone as it was a novel that I did not enjoy. Albom's opinion about the afterlife would be better subject matter if it hadn't been so obvious and shoved in the reader's nose.
