    This was the best book I’ve read in a long time. I fell in love with Frankie, I laughed, I cried, I and didn’t want the book to end! I will definitely read it again, which I rarely ever do. 10/10 rec!

    I finished and wanted to start reading it over again. What a unique premise. This author also wrote from the perspective of dozens of characters, yet each had a unique voice and the flow was seemless.

    I have read a Mitch Albom book i didn't like. This one was exceptional how he weaved all the lives together. I felt like I wanted to have an encounter with Frankie Presto. Just couldn't put it down

    Another brilliant story by Mitch Albom! By far, my favorite author hands down. Every story is inspiring and the religious and spiritual undertones are truly amazing. Grab the kleenex for this one!

    Albom does it again with this magical realism mixed with charming and probing philosophical journey. He kept me guessing and thinking throughout the book while making the story easy and relatable.
