This audio book is filled with answers to the mysteries experienced by mediums that see the dead in the flesh. While this idea terrifies me and makes me question my own beliefs it makes my understanding of her experience clear. I believe that Allison really sees the things she conveys because her telling is so straightforward.
Allison Dubois is a real person, she is unpolished and unpretentious and this audio book clearly highlights her naivete in the world of voice acting. There are numerous negative criticisms about the amateurish quality of Allison’s reading of this book and while I can agree in most instances, even most nonfiction, in this case I love Allison’s honest reading of this memoir. Why would you want to listen to this book after knowing these glaring observations?
Many psychics are showmen and little more and they rely on their ability to capture their audience’s attention with slick and flashy presentations. Allison I suspect has had little experience in the limelight and as a result this audio book sounds very much like a telephone conversation. Which I personally welcome because I want to know who Allison Dubois is and what the world she lives in feels like. Allison exudes emotion and unconsciously unveils herself for all who listen to the telling of her life.

The information in this book helps understand the character that is shown in the TV series, Medium. The story presented can be of interest to those who are curious about the possibilities of life after death or in peoples' intuition. The book is Alison's personal life story but, like most authors, her talent lies in areas other than narration. (The only writer I can think of that enhances his writing by his spoken word is David Sedaris.) I have a feeling that Alison Dubois would be great to meet in person and would be a wonderful person to converse with - but not if she had to read from a script. Too bad Patricia Arquette wasn't available to narrate Alison's book.

For anyone interested in the unknown or missing that piece of a jigsaw, whether it be fulfillment or a loved one; this is a must. Once you get past the monotonous voice, it compels you to tune in and keep listening. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed 'Don't Kiss Them Good-Bye' and would highly recommend it ? if it?s your thing. Sorry to have finished it and sorry to say goodbye to this audio tape.
