Sounds a different story. Haven't read before that someone plays Poker like things after death.

The book sounds as enjoyable though it appertains to heaven in which someone can suffer. This heaven differ from what we believe. Thank you for clarifying that it is author's uniqueness.

Your description of this book reminds me of an old-fashioned story similar to "It's A Wonderful Life" where the angel in that tale must earn his wings by helping out George Bailey. I never tire of stories like these because they are simple, but at the heart of them, it is about how God helps out mankind by sending out angels to attend to us. It gives a reader hope and a break from all the bad stuff we hear about constantly. Nothing wrong with a book to help us escape, I say. I enjoyed your review of this, and I will have to check this one out a little more. Thank you.

A very interesting story clearly involves with today's topic wish the plot was longer in detail but overall the summary and characters are what makes the story flow

I really like your review. It can make me read this book.Even if the character goes to heaven it's not that strict as we are always made to imagine.

I had not heard of the book, but the title is something that definitely would grab my attention. After reading your review, it is definitely going to be more than likely the next book I read. I enjoyed reading your review more than I would have reading the back of the book, and I feel like I got more information than if I had read the back of the book, so thank you! :D

It sounds intriguing. I like the fact that the characters are not stereotypical. I can imagine how seeing life through his brother’s girlfriend’s perspective gives him new insights. I might check this out.
