Book Review | The Fun of Dying

Title: The Fun of Dying: Find Out What Really Happens Next!

Author: Roberta Grimes

My Review:

Admittedly, The Fun of Dying: Find Out What Really Happens Next is a peculiar title, given people’s fear and apprehension about death. That’s understandable.

I have to say, the concept of this book is a fascinating and fresh one; it does not deal with religion and its views on the afterlife but actual evidence of the afterlife. You should have a healthy curiosity and open mind when reading this book (which I had both)…and I can assure you that, if nothing else, it will be an interesting read. After all, isn’t death and the possibility of what awaits us following death a topic that intrigues most people? Well, this is the book that will fill that need.

I love the section that includes the “fun facts to give you a foretaste of your Summerland life”…

    Some people do attend their own funerals
    Few dead people care about their former bodies (meaning that visiting and tending to graves is considered a waste of energy and emotion)
    We don’t need to eat or drink as we lack digestive organs, so the food and drink disappears…leading us to decide that eating and drinking are too much bother.
    Most after-death communication is telepathic.

Long story short, Fun of Dying is a fascinating, provocative work on the afterlife. It’s not a book I would consider “new-age” or coming out of left field. It’s based on research into deathbed visions, near-death experiences, communications through psychic mediums (that are verified through double- and triple-blind scientific studies), hypnotic regression, and so on. I found it fascinating and if you’d like to gain some perspective on the afterlife, it’s most definitely worth the read.

*I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this novel.*
