    Have you ever seen something that wasn't really there? Heard someone call your name in an empty house? Sensed someone following you and turned around to find nothing? Hallucinations don't belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. People with migraines may see shimmering arcs of light or tiny, Lilliputian figures of animals and people.

    Alison says: "Sacks at his best, why couldn't he narrate?"
    "enlightening."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hallucinations to be better than the print version?

    I listen to audio books while commuting. I feel then that the drive is not a down time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hallucinations?

    Validates the person having the hallucination really believing that this is truth to them and the challenge for those not having the hallucination dealing with that person.


    What does Dan Woren and Oliver Sacks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The amazing brain and all that the brain can do to us.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried. I have worked for years in an emergency room and I have had to deal with people hallucinating


    Any additional comments?

    Good listen

    Story
    (1449)

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    Kelly says: "Compelling"
    "peace at last"

    Would you listen to Proof of Heaven again? Why?

    The spirit of humanity is often not thought of as it is not science. I will read again to feel what message is being sent


    What other book might you compare Proof of Heaven to and why?

    Bible states we will be with HIM. Life is a journey not a destination


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Being with God


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

    the author discovering the larger picture of GOD
