Book Description

25 Jun 2005
Allison DuBois first realised her abilities at six years old when she saw her great-grandfather - after his funeral. For many years she learned to downplay her talents but while working for the county attorney when at law school, her gift took a distinct and miraculous turn. As she handled evidence from murder cases, Allison began to 'see' the crimes as they had occurred, providing vital information such as the location of bodies and unidentified perpetrators. She then decided to dedicate her life to ease the pain of those who have lost loved ones. Allison has helped solve numerous crimes. She has also been studied at three universities and her accuracy has amazed scientific researchers. DON'T KISS THEM GOODBYE is the fascinating account of a devoted wife and mother who combines a normal life with the ability to communicate with the dead.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 9 Sep 2007
By Clare
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book as a fan of the TV series, wanting to know more about Allison's experiences as a medium and as a psychic criminal profiler and was disappointed. The book seems mainly to be a guide on how to be a good medium, like a medium self help manual.

Obviously for someone like me who doesn't have the psychic gift or children in whom it might develop, it just didn't give what it promised in the write up.

I was looking forward to 'Allison shares fascinating stories of her encounters with people who have passed away and her adventures as a criminal profiler' and found actual stories and detail sadly lacking.

A real shame, I remain a fan of Allison and of the TV series, but would not recommend this book if you are wanting more of what the series offers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Kiss Them Goodbye - my wifes review 5 Nov 2005
My husband bought this book as a gift for me and I really enjoyed reading about Allison DuBois since I have also been following the TV programme 'The Medium' based on Allisons life. Without giving too much away in my review - this book is excellent for anyone who is learning about their own 'gift' or who has children with the 'gift' - plus Allison gives an insight into her own life as a medium - doing what she was born to do - helping people understand that life continues after physical death.

3.0 out of 5 stars I expected a little more. 9 Oct 2006
having watched the excellent series Medium, with patricia Arquette, opon which Allison's life is based, I expected the book to be somewhat on the same lines, but unfortunately, the book is a bit general and doesnt touch on the magic of the tv programme. Now, I am aware that tv will, and does sensationalise everything, I did expect the accounts in the book to have more detail and more meaning to them. Yet Allison talks quite bluntly about her gift and continues to protest about being a regular woman who wants a happy life marriage and kids etc (which is absolutely correct) but, I bought the book for more insight into her gift and it doesnt always give that. I dont want graphic details or kleenex moments, but to limit her accounts of communication with the deceased to 1 page is disappointing. The book left me wanting more, but not in a good way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting and Reassuring 10 Jan 2007
what can I say about this book except it is absolutely superb. If you are mourning the death of a loved one this book will give you reassurance that the dead are still with us and happy.

I admit to being a fan of the television show "Medium" and, one night, whilst surfing the internet, I stumbled across Allison DuBois's website. I've always held a fascination about those psychics/mediums who work with police (and other governmental) departments and it was interesting to read more about the woman who inspired the television show I enjoyed. I was excited to see that Allison had written books about her experiences, so I acquired one through a book swapping site.

I started reading this book last Friday on my way to work and, by the end of my shift, I had finished it. Its an easy read this book, with large font and written at a level so a primary school child could understand. Its not a work of great literature and its obvious Allison (and Joe) have written the text themselves, but I think that adds to the book's appeal. I have seen where some readers have complained about the dryness of book, but Allison herself admits to distancing herself emotionally from her clients and their predicaments, as a professional necessity, so I was comfortable with this aspect of her style.

I also read complaints from reviewers, who were big fans of the television shows, about there not being enough about those cases which were the inspiration for various episodes. This seemed odd to me. Knowing that Allison works in the legal field, I can see the problems associated with giving details of the "real life" cases in which she has participated. Anyone whose case she came into contact with might find grounds for appeal and, given the nature of the cases on which Allison works, it would be foolish for her to divulge this information. In fact, I think she mentions this in the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Negative Vibrations!!! 29 Dec 2010
I bought this book a long time ago since I was a big fan of the tv show 'Medium'.. I threw away all her books after watching 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Season 1, Episode 9)'. I was so shocked to see the 'Real' Alison DeFraud. She is definately not a medium from the light so how could anyone trust a word she says now? This book oozes negative vibrations so do not waste your money!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A very interesting and comforting read 15 Nov 2007
I really enjoyed this book and found it a great comfort to read that our loved ones and our pets continue living after their phsyical death and Allison gives us plenty of examples of this.

I believe most of us have psychic abilities which we chose to ignore and, reading this book, I recognised times in my own life when there has been psychic intervention.

I have only given it 4 stars because, like some of the other reviewers, I felt at times I wanted more depth and insight but I guess there are always going to be more questions than answers.

Having said that, I think this is a good read for those who are interested in mediums and it will bring comfort for the bereaved. Recommended.
