This was a really sad but touching book and shows how people affect each other without realising. Eddie seems like a grumpy sort at the start of the book, but by the end you discover the reasons for why he is how he is and therefore understand him as a person. It is also quite comforting in its suggestion that there is something to come after death, and I hope this is true and wonder who my 5 would be! It was quite a short book, but it was perfect in size - it explored the idea in detail, but still managed to leave me thinking. I give this book 8/10.
