THE FIRST PHONE CALL FROM HEAVEN

by | Read by Mitch Albom

Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

In Mitch Albom’s latest audiobook, residents in a small town start receiving unexplained phone calls from deceased relatives. The communications inspire Sully Harding to investigate for answers. The author narrates the ensuing confusion and controversy, as well as the varying viewpoints of those who believe in the messages from the dead and those who don’t. Albom portrays each individual’s reaction with genuine compassion. Amid the excitement and bewilderment, he’s still able to keep Harding’s voice familiar and deferential. Albom uses a soothing, quiet voice—fitting and purposeful—for each phone call from the unknown. Sound effects such as a phone ringing, a doorbell, and a sudden knocking sound are all effective in achieving such a thought-provoking and inspiring story.
