The Five People You Meet in Heaven Chapter 3 Summary & Analysis

Eddie has just died, and he is now floating through a series of vibrant changing colors and peaceful oceanic scenery, remembering his last moments. He wonders if he saved “Amy or Annie,” but suddenly he feels as if everything at Freddy’s Free Fall happened years ago. He is surprised to realize that he feels no suffering or sadness—only calm.
The colors bring a sense of vibrancy back to Eddie, whose life on earth had become dull. Albom doesn’t make any specific religious claims about heaven, and rarely even mentions God, but the novel depends on the premise of an afterlife and a benevolent force with plans for every person.
