This was an incredibly deep and touching book and certainly very thought provoking. The main character's choice of days (including 9/11) was genuinely interesting and made me think of which days I would choose if given the chance.
This beautifully written book is full of emotion and heart and alternately leaves you smiling and brings you to tears. It's truly a must read and I definitely highly recommend it.

"Perhaps the most unusual novel I have seen in a long time is Five Days: Which Days Would You Choose? by Matt Micros ($9.18, Micropulous Press, available at Amazon.com.) When 40-year-old Mike Postman rescues a drowning boy he allows himself to drown. Since he died a hero the angel Gabriel gives him a gift of choosing five days that he can relive. The book raises questions about life and death, suicide and the afterlife while raising questions about which five days you might relive if given the opportunity. Definitely offbeat, but it will appeal to some."
