    Now considered a classic in the field, this remarkable book was the first to fully explore the mystery of life between lives. Journey of Souls presents the first-hand accounts of 29 people placed in a "superconscious" state of awareness using Dr. Michael Newton's groundbreaking techniques. This unique approach allows Dr. Newton to reach his subjects' hidden memories of life in the spirit world after physical death.

    Story
    Would you listen to Journey of Souls again? Why?

    I've read it in paper form a few times. I have bought it in that form for friends on a half-dozen occasions. I wanted to review material since it had been about 10 years. I was hugely disappointed as I will describe...


    What did you like best about this story?

    The information/research was amazing.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Berkrot?

    Perhaps Simon Vance or any good voice actor. The book had one-on-one interviews with Dr. Newton and about 30 others. It would have been nice to have a different voice (whether real, by a separate person or with a simple change of tone.)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire book is non-stop groundbreaking information the entire world should be made aware of!


    Any additional comments?

    The original book analyzed one-on-one recorded sessions with Dr. Newton and about 30 hypnotized subjects. In the book these were transcribed as follows:

    Dr. N: blah blah blah?
    Subject: blah
    Dr. N.: [Surprised] Blah blah?
    Subject: [Pause] Blah blah

    Which is just fine if you're reading. You SEE who is the next talking, but you DON'T repeat it to yourself, thousands of times, as it was narrated, complete with "pause" and "surprised" and other stage directions being spoken. Ridiculous!

    A second voice should have been used (either by an additional narrator (or more) or by a voice actor changing their voice, alternating as necessary, and PAUSING or speaking quietly or excitedly as the notes suggested. But NOT speaking the words, "Long pause," "Timidly," etc...

    I was anxious for this to be a good presentation. I would have probably gifted it to several people had it been. I would never consider doing so in this state. It is entirely distracting and at times, even hard to follow. I have even talked to a few friends about narrating the book as a project (done correctly!) just to be able to disseminate this important research in a manner that would be practical. If I ever actually do this, maybe I will contact Audible or Dr. Newton about purchasing the production.

    Make no mistake. They really dropped the ball on this one. This is important information which is NOT made one IOTA easier to read/hear by this production and it could so easily have been. This book was not adapted for audio as many books are. It was simply narrated.

    I will NOT recommend this to anyone, though I will still certainly recommend the book in written form. In fact, I just bought it in hard-copy for my girlfriend.
