Afterlives of the Rich and Famous by Sylvia Browne

I am on the fence about whether I believe in the afterlife or not, but I thought this book would at least be entertaining.  Not only do I hope that what Sylvia Browne is telling us about "The Other Side" is true, I also am kind of looking forward to going there when my life is through!  Now, I'm not saying that I want to die, only stating that it's nice to believe and hope that there really is a paradise waiting for us when this life is ended.

The beginning of this book was a description of what the "Other Side" is like, going from the minute your spirit leaves your body, continuing through the various "healing" phases and looking back to your life, and on to how people live out their spirit lives.  Like I said before, I'm not sure that I believe in this, but after reading this book, the idea of an afterlife seems very appealing to me and it makes me hope that when I die, there is something to look forward to.  I see that alot of people have very negative reviews of this book, and I can understand that, but of those who doubt this book, how many of them actually know for a fact what happens to us when we die.  Nobody can know what it's like, therefore, this book offers a suggestion or alternative to what happens when we leave this world.

This book also covers many celebrities that have passed on.  While it was interesting to read the short biographies of each of the said celebrities, the "Other Side" portion of their lives was hard to relate to, as it is portrayed that they are back to their "true forms" and these are not described as the way we are used to viewing them.

All in all it was an interesting and quick read, that kept my interest throughout the book.  I would recommend this book to people who have open minds concerning religion, faith and the afterlife. A definite "Feel Good" book!
