Let's discuss about the novel.."Five people you meet in heaven"

Ok~ let's talk about novel which name is "Five People You Meet in Heaven". Well...I think that this story is really good to learn English. Because i think the story is interesting and then level of English is not really hard to me, but not so easy. I'm really enjoying the novel. When I met this book first time, I guessed about the title: "Five People....." Five people? Who is five people? And now I can guess more about five people. Ok first one is a "Blueman" who Eddie met in his childhood. I think this story is really similar with the story which is wrote by Charles Dickens name s "A christmas carol". Of course this story is more peaceful than Scrooge story. Anyway I think this story is really interesting on me. This is the second time which have read English novel. The first one was "The Jurassic Park" which is made by movies. I had already know about the story but I saw the movie first before I got to read the book.But it was really hard work to me.
Anyway the five people novel is doing good work for me who was learning English now. And then handout helps me to understand and make guess the story. If there is no paper like homework, I would give up reading this novel. If I have a handout when I read "The Jurassic Park". I could finish reading the novel easily.

Hello~! At first, thank you for leaving a comment on my blog! You had been suffering from cold, right? That's too bad...but I'm glad to know that you're fine now! Kaze niwa ki wo tukete!

Well, I'm impressed that you've finished reading a novel written in English. I acutually have been reading the novel written in English which is called "The Devil Wears Prada" since the middle of October. I've loved reading in Japanese, but it's so much harder for me to turn pages when it comes to reading in English. I think it's because I need to stay focused on where I am on a book and be patient in order to understand what an author wants to mean. However, making efforts by reading in English definitely will help you improve the skill of your English!

So ganbatte~!!!

The Five People You Meet in Heaven and A Christmas Carol--that's an interesting comparison! I never thought of that. I can compare this novel to the famous classic movie, It's a Wonderful Life, with James Stuart and Donna Reed. In the movie, a funny angel comes down from heaven to save the life of a desperate man. In order to save him, the angel shows him what his town would be like if he had never been born. By the end, the man has discovered a way to appreciate the life he thought he hated.

Reading in English is a great way to improve your skills at it. I've been learning Japanese the same way. I'm now reading a translation of "The Hobbit" in Japanese; it's difficult, but really helpful. Your description of Five People You Meet in Heaven makes me want to read it too.
