This is a nice review. I will try to read the book when time permits, though it won't be on top of my priority lineup. Thanks!

This is not the kind of book I would normally read. I must admit, the enthusiasm with which the review is written, makes me almost want to at least page through the book.

Just browsing and scanning the title and cover, I would have easily overlooked this book. Your review piqued my interest and I've just added it to my bookshelf to read! Thanks for taking the time to explain what this book is about. I'd teased my wife about heaven, saying things like "what if I want to have fun :drool: in heaven, play games and be mischievous, is it just boring and the same every day?". This book seems to be right up my alley!

This is a really sweet book and I am yearning to read it. Though as you said in your review, it does not depict heaven the way we view it but this Jimmy guy sounds real and he is in heaven. Moreover, angels playing poker? That sounds interesting.

This kind of story is quite unique because just by the glimpse of it, there is something extraordinary about angels from heaven as they also play poker. And the way the author writes is very inspirational. This book will surely inspire and motivate a lot of people.

It's really a fiction. It sounds interesting to me and I feel those who like reading story books will appreciate it as well.

This sounds interesting. I often have trouble with books where characters end up in the afterlife. In many cases, the authors seem to work too hard to explain the workings of Heaven (or Hell). Sometimes less really is more. This sounds light-hearted enough to be enjoyable without being preachy or false. Thanks!
