This is a really good book. I love this book. I have seen the movie. It's better than the movie big time. It's a sad story though but a good book to read and it has a happy ending at least.

This a very good book.
I feel like I am somehow connected to Heaven after reading this.
This story inspires, and I highly recommend that anyone who has any questions about Heaven, or God, or has doubts about Jesus' love, should read this.
FIVE STARS!

I saw the movie promos on this which prompted me to read the book. I found it to be very preachy and the father's interpretations are a little too pat. It seems to me that unless you are Christian, there is no way you'll get into heaven (what hogwash) and that's why I gave it a low rating. I believe this child had a near death and out of body experience and during this period he witnessed something very special. Colton's words ring true, the father's, not so much, but if this brings inspiration to readers, then the effort was worth it.

This is a mind blowing book.

As you read you get a glimpse at what is truly Heaven, what is truly Paradise.
The journey that this little boy takes, will have you hanging on to his every word, his every breath, as you hunger for more.
The simple way he puts things, makes it possible for everyone to see what is beyond the drab world that we live in today.
It gives hope to all who are hopeless.
Faith to all who lack faith.
It is simply a real-life experience put into words that will teach you about what God is like, and how much he really loves us.
