Book Review | The Fun of Dying
Author: Roberta Grimes
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.
