1.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter Look Out!, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very very disappointing. Looks to me like she super-imposed her own quasi-eastern/new age beliefs onto a fantasy fuelled by grief.Or maybe something more sinister than grief? Ambition? Greed? She meditated four hours a day BEFORE her brother died, sounds like she was desperate for some sort, any sort "spiritual" experience. Maybe her brothers death gave her an opening to be the "new age prophet" she seems keen to come across as? This is the most cold, unfeeling description of any "spiritual" experience I have ever read. Doesn't strike true at all. A lot of descriptive nonsense. If I get this right, her brother, the drug addict, who never seemed to care for anyone much but himself in life, passed over and became beyond an Ascendant Master in the spirit world? He was so advanced, he passed into the nothingness/everythingness of Nirvana? All the while giving a running commentary? Well there's my beliefs debunked! I always thought to get to the nothing/everythingness of merging with the Godhead, you had to be of a quite high (well,very very high) spiritual vibration, if you were that high no way would you be able to telepathically communicate with someone on earth vibration. And poor Jesus and Buddhas etc..they need not have been so kind and loving to be ascendant masters..they could have been selfish and self-indulgent and act uncaring towards even their closest people and still gone on to be amongst the highest in the game on the other side. Load of self-indulgent rubbish! I did note that after "Billy" had gone off to be nothing and everything, he did however leave the door open for future "communication" with her, wtf?. Sequel behind that one maybe? Earlier in the story, "he" had said he was off never to be seen again and popped back up, weird that such an evolved soul didnt seem to have a clue waht was happening from one minute to the next!. Then that he had forgotton who he was, ALL his memories had been wiped in preparation for "merging" but he had been allowed to keep his memories of her. How is it possible to keep a memory of the link he had with her, yet forget everyone and everything else connected with this, his last life? Would have been interesting to know what his past lives were, but alas, all we did was get a glimpse of the flowers that represented his last lives. The epic descriptions of crowds of super-evolved souls following their Master souls through the crystal temples was bizzare, maybe it would look good on a movie screen and the author already had in mind? What strikes me, she made it so few people witnessed the "proof" of what was happening. A Jamacian waterfall guide, a woman who later went into re-hab for a drink problem, a man in her small writing group that later broke up. This book is expensive for a kindle book..I have been swindled! Maybe she has more in common with her brother than she thought! And I agree with the reviewer who said Raymond Moody's input infulenced her purchase of this book. It did mine too. He has gone right down in my estimation by lending his name to this work of fiction. In my opinion, if you want something worth reading, read "Testimony of Light" by Helen Greaves. Or Anita Moorjanis Dying to be Me...now there is a woman who delivers the proof!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Wasnt keen, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wasn't keen on the writing style. Couldn't find a drop of sympathy or empathy for the author...thought she was just trying to be clever writing this way..for her own enjoyment rather than to inform or entertain or whatever it was she wrote this for. I found it sleazy. And while a lot of addicts lives do involve sleaze...their memories dont make me want to scrub myself clean after reading them. Maybe cos I just didnt like the author while reading it...maybe that was the point of the book and the way it was written? I don't know, but I found the story depressing and very uninspiring and the author to be selfish and arrogant in her style

Im afraid I couldnt even get to the end of it, it was so boring.
Ironically for a book about alcohol the writing was incredibly dry (and not dry in a "dry humour" way...dry in a "crusty and dusty" way.
Buy this if you have trouble falling asleep at night...youll be out like a light after 10 pages :)

More like reading a magazine article..couldnt really see the point in writing it. Didnt go into any real depth about anything...like having some stranger on the bus tell you their story...just a bit of a whinge put down in writing

Read it in a day, because I couldnt put it down. I like the way she didn't spend chapters and chapters on the NDE itself, but was able to interpret it and put it into use in her life, and spent time showing how the event that followed the NDE such as healing and the synchronicity involved in getting this book published was all part of the "tapestry" I had a similar experience myself years ago and this author came the nearest to describing what I was shown than any other person I have read

This review is from: Dry (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this book. Superbly written. The author really brings his story to life. The story is witty and sad and funny and tragic its one of the best addiction memoirs Ive ever read (and Ive read a LOT). He reveals himself, warts and all, but is still strangely likable. I cant put my finger on what it was..but he just touched me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont waste your money, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a boring book!! It was quite expensive for a kindle book and I couldnt even finish it. All about his boring childhood..then the boring stage school he went to...then a LOT about the boring minor "celebrities" he knew...just that he name dropped come to think of it..not even any bits of juicy gossip or anything about them!
Also everyone was a "great proffessional" (never even heard of half the people he rambled on about) and how great he himself is. Very little about addiction in here, apart from descriptions of a few pints drank and a few blackouts

What utter drivel. All it is, is the author drivelling on about themselves meditating and "finding" their own past lives...Ive had more vivid daydreams and dont take them as "fact" and try to fob them off onto other people as some great discovery
