The best that can be said of this audiobook is that the author is using a fictional narrative as a vehicle for promoting a distinctly unoriginal self-help philosophy. I've read hundreds of NDE experiences and many are reported honestly and have a ring of truth about them, regardless of whether there is any objective truth to their content, but this is not the case here. It stands out amongst NDE accounts not for its detail but for its remarkable resemblance to fantasy fiction rolled out by a wholly inexperienced writer.
No sooner has Mr Parti disappeared through the ceiling of the operating theatre than the barrage of cliched, saccharine anecdotes of self-examination begin, from making up with his dead father by understanding his motivations in mentally abusing him as a child to apologising to a bunch of farmers he beat up in a previous life. Soon after (although not soon enough) he is floated into the archetypal sweet-smelling green meadow by the Archangels Gabriel and Michael, who tell bad jokes and exchange banter about social workers. He continues on to meet a being of blue light that chats to him like a best mate down the pub and, on occasion, 'chuckles telepathically'. It was not long after this point I decided I could take no more. Life's too short, as it were. If you're desperate to believe in each and every feel-good tale of the afterlife, no matter how ludicrous, then give it a go, otherwise don't waste your money.

This is one of those rare books that not only totally captivates the reader, but also transforms you as you read. I loved this book and have no doubt that what he has experienced was real. It makes you re assess and question your own life and for me it was if I was having the experiences with him. This was recommended to me by a mentor and it did not disappoint. A must read for anyone seeking answers about life and death, energy workers or those questioning their own existence.
