It's now been confirmed by Alex Malarkey that his story wasn't true. He didn't die or have a near death experience. He didn't visit "Heaven". He literally made the whole thing up. Check the reviews on the US Amazon site for confirmation and links to the statement he made. Deeply disturbing and disingenuous.

Total Fiction. The boy, Alex Malarkey, has admitted that he made the whole thing up to get attention. His mother has been warning us, and she's right. The father who actually wrote the book is a fraud.

I don't understand why there are positive reviews about this book. It has been confirmed, in an open letter from "the boy", that it was completely made up. The gullibility industry is alive and well, and continuing to take money from its victims.

The boy who claimed to have this experience has admitted that he lied about it and the book's publisher, Tyndale House, are taking the book and all ancillary products out of print. Alex Malarkey who co-wrote "The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven" said in January 2015 that he made the whole thing up. He admitted "I did not die. I did not go to heaven. I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention."

It i very sad and disturbing that this boy (or perhaps his father) wrote what they now admit to be total fiction. I am sure they will have hurt a lot of people through this.

I expected it to be an account of a young boys journey to heaven whilst in a coma. Instead it's his dad's chance to try and force his beliefs onto the reader.

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 understand that the Malarkey family are devoted Christian's, with Christianity values playing a strong part in their children's upbringing.

Alex at only six was well rehearsed with the Christian bible. He knew about Angels, Heaven, Hell, the Devil and how Jesus died for our sins. He was taught that when we die, our spirits leave our bodies and we go to a higher plane, back to our creator - we go home to God.

That's all fine and well, and a beautiful notion but it made me doubt the true authenticity of the overall workings of this story. Could this story be an embellishment of a six-year-old child's overactive imagination?

I don't doubt that what happened with his recovery was a miracle, but I just felt, for me personally, the excessive religious references just made this read a little uncomfortable at times.

Whereas fully qualified Doctor's were giving their professional diagnosis of Alex' injuries, his family and close church family network were disputing those results and challenging every step when it came to his desired recovery.
