    1. I was excited to read this book because of the premise of the true story of a child going to heaven and returning to tell of his experiences. Well, Alex tells very little about that in the book. Mostly it is a detailed account of all the things that were done for Alex and his family post-accident, prayers prayed and freebies given. The author actually lost me when he opens a chapter saying that anyone can be a "NICE" person and speak all the "right" things so that people think he is a Christian, [...]

    2. " “An Open Letter to Lifeway and Other Sellers, Buyers, and Marketers of Heaven Tourism, by the Boy Who Did Not Come Back From Heaven."I did not die. I did not go to Heaven."I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible. People have profited from lies, and continue to. "-Alex Malarkey

    3. I had to stop reading this book after getting 24% through it. I thought the story would be great in a spiritual aspect but it's more of a platform for the author to push his beliefs. I was afraid that the book would be preachy when I first loaded it onto my reader and I do respect the beliefs of others but I don't want to spent hours having somebody preach to me about something I'm not so sure about. In context of the story itself, I was okay with it after the car accident and I could feel the K [...]

    4. Seems like Alex Malarkey has fessed up to making it all up. huffingtonpost/2015/01/15/alex-malarkey-boy-who-came-back-from-heaven_n_6483432ml/

    5. This is a book that has been passed around the office from co-worker to co-worker and finally landed in my little hands. The story intrigued me as anything that is not normally experienced daily is something that intrigues me. However, it wasn't the explanations and experiences of Alex's time spent in Heaven that really captured and held my attention but Kevin's own story of faith, hope and prayer. Alex's description was small fillers into a world that I know exists around us but consider both f [...]

    6. Disturbing. I have no doubt that the words and images found on the pages of this book will appeal to some. Some will find comfort.I understand the anguish Alex's family endured from Alex's struggle with death and life. I can appreciate the prayers and helping hands that surrounded and supported the Malarkey family. I found the Malarkey's praise and gratitude sincere. Still I found the book unsettling.The militarism of 'spiritual warfare', prayer 'warriors',and Alex 'army' do not mesh with my ima [...]

    7. I read this book thinking that it was a true story being told by a boy who had died, gone to heaven and had come back to tell about his experiences. In fact it this book was not really what I thought it would be. In fact, it was mainly told by his father, Kevin, who was also involved in this terrible accident. Alex, was 6yo when the car he was ridding in was hit. Alex died at the scene and when he got to the hospital, workers there did not think he was going to make it.This book, talks about the [...]

    8. I didn't intend to read two books on this subject matter happened quite by accident. I was actually trying to buy 'Heaven is for Real' because I had seen it publicized and it had peaked my interest. I accidentally ended up with this book when I forgot the title while searching on my Kindle. Who could have guessed that there were two books with such similar stories to tell?!I am very conflicted about both of these books for different reasons. Heaven is for Real was an easy read, a believable stor [...]

    9. This was a good bookheavy on the religious side, but enjoyable. Some of the things Mr. Malarkey writes about his son Alex (the boy who came back from Heaven) seems unbelievable. It's hard not to be skeptical, as he himself admits. I found a few inconsistencies. For one, Alex states that he has been to Heaven not only on the day when he "died" after the car accident, but several times since. He is able to somehow visit at will. He states that when he returns from Heaven during these trips, he oft [...]

    10. For the past four years I go on a girls trip with some girlfriends from childhood. The biggest kicker is that one of the girls can not let go of the fact that I BELIEVE IN JESUS. Often times, I feel like God is presenting me a situation that he did with Peter in the final stages of Jesus's life. However, in my situation, I just proudly say, YES, I Believe. What I find "funny" (If you will) is the fact that this girl is always worried about proof. I respond withI don't need proof. I know it is re [...]

    11. I was actually a third of the way through this book before I realized that I had meant to read Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back instead. That's to say nothing of 90 Minutes in Heaven (which this book takes time to refute, oddly enough) and The Five People You Meet in Heaven. This entire genre was completely alien to me, which is why I wanted to dive in and give them a shot.Seeing as the book was only 150 pages, if I didn't care for it, it wouldn' [...]

    12. The boy who came back from heaven is a true story about a six-year old boy, Alex Malarkey, who went to be with Jesus for a time after a car accident with his father.It's an emotional journey to say the least. When I read any book about going to Heaven or even Hell, I watch closely to see who will get the glory and the purpose of the book. I can honestly say, while going in skeptical, that this journey for the Malarkey family is touching, beautiful and gives glory to God on every page. It's scrip [...]

    13. What I find most telling about this book, is the fact that Beth Malarkey has completely distanced herself from it. On her blog, in reference to the book, she states "I am not involved with, or desire to be connected with, the book titled The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven. Please direct any comments or questions pertaining to that book to the publisher, author, or the author's agent. Thank you."That said it all for me. The majority of the book is written by the father, Kevin Malarkey. It felt to [...]

    14. this one is for my "friends" book group. it's got a lot of talk about prayer and Jesus - much more than i'm comfortable with, but on the other hand, when your child should have died in a car accident, there's a lot of that going on. the jury is still out on this one.

    15. This book made me cry more than any other book that I've read. The situation for the family was so appalling and the stories of how good people pooled together to help them were truly moving. BUT! I can't quite put my finger on the but, yet it's there. I don't feel comfortable with a book that sets a child up as a saint. Malarkey tells us that his son is just like any other boy, yet never gives us any examples of this. The closest he gets is to how young Alex ribs people if they don't like the s [...]

    16. Pretty sure this is Poe. With so much phoney baloney being published and then authors publishing satire and silliness based on the phoney baloney, gets pretty difficult to tell who is nutty and who is being funny.I put this on my to-read list because I'm intrigued to see if I can discover any dead giveaways. For goodness sake, the author's name is Malarkey.

    17. CAUTION:I have tried to research how Alex is currently doing and have come across his mom's blog and discovered that she and Alex both do not associate themselves with this book and are distressed by the deceit involved in marketing and making it about making money. So disappointed!

    19. I have wanted to read this book for a while now, so I took a 'leap of faith' last night and jumped right in. I have an affinity with the afterlife, it's something that has always interested me immensely and the synopsis of 'The Boy who came back from Heaven' really peaked my interest. However, I wasn't quite prepared for the God card to be played so prominently. That probably sounds totally off-kilter and a little hypocritical considering the subject matter, but as this story progresses you unde [...]

    20. In 2004, Kevin Malarkey and his six-year-old son, Alex, suffered an horrific car accident. The impact from the crash paralyzed Alex--and medically speaking, it was unlikely that he could survive. "I think Alex has gone to be with Jesus," a friend told the stricken dad.But two months later, Alex awoke from a coma with an incredible story to share. Of events at the accident scene and in the hospital while he was unconscious. Of the angels that took him through the gates of heaven itself. Of the un [...]

    21. As a parent, any book that discusses a child being severely injured or killed is going to pull at my heart strings and make me cry. I will say that I was crying fairly early in the book. I must also admit that i did not make it all the way through the book. I found the the organization of the book a bit irritating. I had to skip and go back and things as such because of intercepts of other peoples comments on what was going on it the story. This book is about a father and his young son that are [...]

    22. Alex is in a bad car accident and ends up in a coma. After he wakes up he tells that he had been in Heaven, talking with God. This is his story.I wavered between giving this book a 1-2 stars. I had a hard time with the pure Christian belief in this. How the father thinks everything is thanks to God and Jesus Christ and how everything's credited to them and not the actual people doing the stuff. If I look and read this in a spiritual way it's a fascinating tale of hope and how much thoughts and p [...]

    23. What an inspirational story. I remember exactly when this accident happened and how tragic it was. This story happened in the town that I live, Bellefontaine, OH. The power of prayer is one of the main theme's of this book and you can see how alive it is. After the fact knowing that Alex has denounced the fact that he actually travelled to Heaven I still enjoyed this book fully. I do not know what Alex saw and what he did not seem the point is that against all odds this young man is alive and I [...]

    24. I thought this book was going to be about Alex's (Kevin Malarkey's son) experience in heaven after a car accident--wrong! Except for a few pages, the whole book was what occurred from the Dad's perspective. I was disappointed because I wanted to read what the son experienced.

    25. The kid made the whole thing up and his dad filled in the verbiage. A bunch of credulous fools lapped it up. Hilarious. This couldn't be funnier if the kid's last name was something totally obvious like Humbug or Malarky waitHahahaha

    26. In 2004, Kevin Malarkey and his 6 year old son, Alex, suffered a terrible car wreck. The impact from the crash paralyzed Alex, left him in a coma for two months, and it seemed impossible that he could survive. This story relates the struggle that Alex went through to regain his life as well as his "supposed" trip to heaven. The story regarding Alex' recovery from this horrible crash in which his spine was basically severed at his neck was fascinating to read. The difficulties that affected both [...]

    28. This is an account of how a young boy survived a serious car accident to tell of his near death experience and ongoing encounters with angels, supernatural agents and conversations with God. It seemed broadly similar to Heaven Is For Real, Todd Burpo’s account of his young son’s near death experience although the writing is better and more worldly-wise, as in tinged with knowing skepticism and self-doubt. The Malarkeys' account had greater visceral appeal because of the many witnesses, the o [...]

    29. Wow. This has to be the most amazing book I've read in a long time. I can see why it's a bestseller. It absolutely blew my mindl the things as a Christian or even just someone familiar with the Christian faith would say they believe/find in the Bible actually tested and put into practice. You say you believe in Heaven, or that Jesus is always with us, or that angels and demons are real's a perspective from a kid who actually got a glimpse of all these things, yet came back to earth as an ordinar [...]
