On the day the world received its first phone call from heaven, Tess Rafferty was unwrapping a box of tea bags. Drrrrnnn! She ignored the ring. THE FIRST PHONE CALL FROM HEAVEN tells the story of a small town on Lake Michigan that gets worldwide attention when its citizens start. One morning in the small town of Coldwater, Michigan, the phones start ringing. The voices say they are calling from heaven. Is it the greatest miracle ever?.

I have read all of Mitch's books: I've liked all of them, except The Time Keeper, a lot. The Time Keeper was just okay. Here is a very short synopsis from Goodreads: The First Phone Call from Heaven tells the story of a small town on Lake Michigan that gets worldwide attention when its citizens start receiv I have read all of Mitch's books: Let me mention a couple of features of this book, without giving anything away, that stood out for me: I love history.

There is a scene a little over half way through in which one of the people receiving calls from heaven reacts in a very surprising way. My mouth dropped. It's just flat-out well-written. I connected to the characters immediately which, as many some?

This is a book that, I think, most everybody would enjoy. 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 of the deceased, and their comments are too personal for anyone to be faking it.

Coldwater will never be the same again, and the people who flock there are given a lesson in what heaven might really be like. Very i Another solid selection from Mitch Albom. Very interesting story, if you're in the mood to ponder such things.

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 is it? Sully Harding is determined to find out the truth. The story contains interesting characters from different backgrounds who receive these phone calls and so the reader gets several viewpoints throughout the In life people either believe in Heaven and an afterlife or they do not. The story contains interesting characters from different backgrounds who receive these phone calls and so the reader gets several viewpoints throughout the story.

I liked several of them but Sully was probably my favourite out of them all. I also liked finding out more about Alexander Graham Bell and his invention of the telephone, which is interspersed throughout the story. It gives a good picture of the way people respond to anything that is out of the ordinary and also of how the media sensationalises things as it changes the quiet little town of Coldwater Michigan into a circus of journalists and TV cameras, believers, the curious and those who protest.

I enjoyed it, as did my husband when he read it. It was actually him borrowed it from the library and I read it after him. While entertaining and having a mystery to solve, it may just give a few things to think seriously about as well. View 1 comment. View 2 comments. Mar 24, Jasmine rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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?

His books are mostly about lessons of life and beliefs in God, and this one is no exception. The story began with some phone calls from the characters' late loved ones in a fictional Coldwater, Michigan. Even though there's a real Sometimes, love brings you together even as life keeps you apart.

Even though there's a real Coldwater town in Michigan, that wasn't where the story took place. People tend to regret everything they should've but hadn't done before their beloved friends or family passed away, and most of them shared a common wish they wish the could talk to the deceased once more.

The end is not the end. At first, the "chosen ones" received phone calls from heaven, when the shocking news spread all over the town, more and more visitors worshipers flooded in. What in life can love not penetrate? Reporters wanted to collect the source firsthand; police officers were dealing with the crowd; vendors and markets were running out of supplies because this small town was facing an unprecedented prosperity; even the certain kind of cellphone, which was the one those chosen ones used, was out of stock in that others believed that was the only brand which could get a heaven call.

There is life after this life. I think the reason those deceased people "called" the living was to ensure them that they led a good life in heaven and it was another kind of forgiveness to them.

Telling the living that there was no need to worry about them because God would take care of them in the heaven.

Of course, how much you believe in this depends on yourself.

If it[the world] believes, it behaves better. Indeed, if everyone believes in the heaven call story, it means we still have a thread of hope and that's what keeps us moving on, moving forward.

We don't need proof for what we choose to believe. I don't hold a specific religious belief, but in my opinion, it's good to know that even as we die, there's a new life waiting for us a bright, hopeful, painless one. Desire sets our compass, but real life steers our course.

After reading this book, you'll know the importance of cherish what you have in presence. Not the past. Not the future. Sometimes hope isn't enough, you still need to seek forgiveness or to forgive others. The ending seems like the same situation in John Green's Looking for Alaska. Instead, I end this as I began it, asking your forgiveness.

Perhaps, soon, I will be able to seek the same from my son. Life is unpredictable and we are blessed to live another day in this beautiful world. I felt so much peaceful and blissful after finished the book and highly recommend to anyone who'd like to search the meaning of life.

Although it sounds abstract and profound in those ideas, you'll learn a lot in the story. The words and thoughts in the book were far beyond the story itself. Heaven is always and forever around us, and no soul remembered is ever really gone.

So back to the very first question from the book, the answer is yes, I believe everything happened in the story , wholeheartedly and undoubtedly, and I hope you do as well.

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…..

But the resolution and the why of it happening fell short for me. There could have been more in depth exploration of why Horace did it, what he was trying to accomplish, etc but it just kind of felt trivial and trite, making up for his son's weakness. I was disappointed. I liked the meaningful The concept of the book was original; grieving people receiving phone calls from their departed loved ones in Heaven. I liked the meaningful interactions that occurred when the departed "called" from Heaven.

How their remaining loved one's felt. Even when Doreen chose to stop receiving the calls from her dead son. Her explanation that it just kept her in her grief, I could understand that.

Also, how good the ones felt that had unresolved feelings about the dead people; maybe they hadn't said all they needed to, etc. It was interesting too how the world reacted. Everyone wanting to get to the place where it was happening, have the same phone that the calls were coming in on. As if, were this really real and happening, as if any of those things could matter.

I'm not even sure what I think of this I'm still confused how I feel about this book, but I really enjoyed my time reading it. All the characters were excellent, and Mitch Albom's writing is always intriguing. Not because it wasn't good, but because I didn't like it personally. The story didn't turn out how I expected.

Which, again isn't a bad thing necessarily. I just felt let down by it, which I suppose was intentional. Aug 30, Rebecca Jo rated it it was amazing. On the day the world received its first phone call from heaven, Tess Rafferty was unwrapping a box of tea. People are getting phone calls from heaven - some from family members that have passed away. Children, sisters. Even an employee is getting a phone call from someone he had to fire. Are the phone calls real?

The world wants to know On the day the world received its first phone call from heaven, Tess Rafferty was unwrapping a box of tea. The world wants to know when wind comes that the phone calls are happening. Is this the proof everyone needs to see that Heaven is real?

I don't want to give anything away I just know I loved the book. Its sort of a mystery novel, but also just a touching novel. I actually logged quite a few quotes from the book on Goodreads because it was just so well written in areas. It was put in so subtly but made the book have an extra touch of something special.

So the record goes, Mitch Albom still ranks for me We call out; we answered. Dec 01, Sheilah rated it it was amazing. 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, I knew that I had to read this book. I have never read any of Mitch Albom's books before, but I found this one very enjoyable. I lost my mother two years ago, and reading this book would bring me to tears just thin 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.

I lost my mother two years ago, and reading this book would bring me to tears just thinking about the "what ifs".

Overall, I think this book was very well written, and captured the emotions perfectly. For someone who isn't "into" these types of books at all, it actually has me wanting to pick up some of his other books just to see if they equally as good.

The First Phone Call From Heaven

I think this would be an excellent book for anyone who has lost someone, as it gives this wonderful sense of hope and peace. Mar 13, Negin rated it did not like it.

Silly, slow, and boring! Reading this turned out to be an utter chore. Naturally, I was looking forward to reading this one, but it turned out to be quite disappointing to say the least. The stories kept jumping around to the point of confusion and annoyance. I normally Silly, slow, and boring! I should have given up on this one, but because it was Mitch Albom and because I was curious to see what would happen, I stuck with it, unfortunately wasting precious hours of my reading time.

How would it affect your life and that of your community? With that bein How would you feel if you could speak to a deceased love one? There is also an issue with the main characters Sully, Jack, Katherine, Amy, etc who are much too stereotypical in regards to the story.

The characters and their actions are much too predictable. Despite the complaints, Albom does provoke some thought-provoking scenarios which can apply to various facets of life aside from just spirituality. This adds depth to the story and promotes page-turning. I am not sure of the meaning of this but it is noticeable and also annoying. This can also be said about the ending of the novel which was not as moving as one would expect from Albom plus somewhat abrupt and not fully executed.

I feel all the positive reviews are merely because the masses just think Albom is golden in whatever he writes but in reality, the novel would be rated lower if it was written by another author.

Oct 08, Lori rated it really liked it Shelves: He has a talent for writing books that are heart felt and touching.

As news of these strange calls spreads, outsiders flock to Coldwater to be a part of it. As the calls increase, and proof of an afterlife begins to surface, the town—and the world—transform.

Only Sully, convinced there is nothing beyond this sad life, digs into the phenomenon, determined to disprove it for his child and his own broken heart. Moving seamlessly between the invention of the telephone in and a world obsessed with the next level of communication, Mitch Albom takes readers on a breathtaking ride of frenzied hope. On the day the world received its first phone call from heaven, Tess Rafferty was unwrapping a box of tea bags.

She ignored the ring and dug her nails into the plastic.
