Well, ok, let's say a NOT so true story. OK, let's call it what the boy himself calls it, a lie. Search the following and you will find ample reportage. - Boy retracts story about going to heaven; bestselling book pulled - Oh well.

This book has been withdrawn from publication as the boy concerned has admitted the whole thing was made up. Should Amazon still feel it is moral for them to sell the remaining stock (Ha! I used 'Amazon' and 'moral' in the same sentence!) it should be sold in the Fiction section, not Biographies and Memoirs.

"The boy who came back from heaven" is the true story of Alex Malarkey who suffered a horrific car accident in 2004. Alex died at the crash but was revived and in a coma for over 2 months. His father, Kevin, writes this remarkable story with honesty, gut-wrenching emotion, and with a most extraordinary twist.
When six year old Alex awoke from the coma he began to share an incredible story. He begins to tell about the angels that took him into the gates of heaven. The reader begins to see heaven and earth through Alex's eyes and words.
Alex talks about being held by Jesus, he gives startling accounts of watching the medical procedures with Jesus, and how angels are involved in our day to day lives. There is a startling consistency to his accounts and Alex states that there are some things "I'm not allowed to tell you". This story is filled with trials, struggles and inspirational moments. Alex's faith, even though he is a quadriplegic, is astounding and moving.
Kevin writes "the years following Alex's return to our home, then, were about endings and beginnings - it was the end of Alex's coma and our dependence on the hospital. But it was also the beginning to a new and challenging kind of family life. Even more than this, it felt like the beginning of our awareness of another world, the powerful reality that continues to permeate our son's life."
This is a story of one family, their tragic moments, their struggles, the ups and downs, and the prayer of God's people and splashes of the glory of heaven that continues to touch many lives.
"You may be intrigued. You may be skeptical. You may be hungry to know more about what lies beyond life on earth." In the words of Alex when he was 6 years old, "God is amazing. I'm just a kid." This book points the reader to a God who loves them.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House to review. All opinions are my own.

When I purchased this book I expected 'Alex' was going to tell us many things about the 'heaven' that he discovered during his near death experiences. He said nothing about the crystal city, the Spirit Guides, the book of records where he could examine his past lives, etc. Many good books have been written about NDEs and OBEs but this isn't one of them. He only mentions that he talked with God and Jesus. The author, Kevin, mentions God in about every page of the book. This got very repitious and boring.

In 2004, Kevin Malarkey and his six-year-old son, Alex, were in a horrible accident. No one thought Alex would live. But two months later he woke up with an amazing story to share. He talks about events that took place at the scene of the accident and at the hospital--he was unconscious in both places. He says Jesus was with him, or one if his angels, telling him that everything would be okay.

This is an amazing story. I wanted to read it because it was real. I read a lot of fiction, but stories like these excite me. They validate my faith, which is always the coolest thing. My favorite parts of the book were Alex's parts. The book is mostly written from Dad's point of view. He explains what happened. The accident, going to the hospital, waiting, talking with his wife, the doctors, pastors, and friends. But Alex's words are interspersed, telling us where he was and what he was doing while everyone else was waiting. It's fascinating. I also enjoyed seeing the stories of other people--people who felt called to pray for Alex and later shared their story with his parents. God works in amazing ways. Sometimes I think we get so caught up in life, we think we know how God works. I don't think we have a clue just how much God is at work in ways we'll never see until Heaven.

Ever since I read Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness, I was changed. I believe he's on to something the way he depicts angles and demons in his novel. But that's just a story. Frank made it up. But Alex's life is real. He talked with these angels, and he didn't like it when the bad ones came around. Looking to be inspired? Read this story. It will really get you thinking.

Format: Paperback
This is not a great book, but it's a fairly good one -- if you are Christian. If you do not have a Christian background or beliefs, this book will not appeal to the same extent. I do have a Christian background, but would consider myself spiritual rather than religious. God and Jesus are mentioned constantly in the book, and the traditional way of getting to God/Heaven is through Jesus (and no other). This shuts out millions of people. What I liked most about the book was the information about angels, a personal interest of mine. I would recommend this book to active Christians as it will substantiate their beliefs, and may give them a few concepts to ponder that might not be introduced in church. For non-believers, this book would be a supernatural tale that is claiming to be non-fiction. It's not an entirely "enjoyable" book in that there is nothing remarkable about the writing style which is quite simplistic, but it's easy to read in one or two sittings. I tend to think of this story as a reverie rather than a revelation. I believe a short story format would have been more appropriate in this case as the "book" has a sense of being drawn out for no important purpose. The editing process seems to have been lacking. I doubt that I would read this book again.
