Publisher's Summary

Annie Kagan is not a medium or a psychic, she did not die and come back to life; in fact, when she was awakened by her deceased brother, she thought perhaps she had gone a little crazy.

In The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There's Life After Death, Kagan shares the extraordinary story of her after death communications (ADC) with her brother Billy, who began speaking to her just weeks after his unexpected death.

One of the most detailed and profound ADC's ever recorded, Kagan's audiobook takes the listener beyond the near-death experience. Billy's vivid, real-time account of his ongoing journey through the mysteries of death will change the way you think about life, death, and your place in the Universe.

In his foreword, Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life after Life, explains the phenomena of walkers between the worlds, known to us since ancient times, and says that Dr. Kagan's thought-provoking account is an excellent example.

    "Not real to me"
    What would have made The Afterlife of Billy Fingers better?

    I am an avid reader of NDEs and such spiritual events. I tried to listen to this but it never got better for me. It sounded like a poorly written novel and I had no stomach to listen to the end. I can't say what would have made this better for me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing by Anita Moorjani


    What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen and David Colacci ’s performance?

    It wasn't serious enough, maybe. It was more like listening to a YA novel.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Afterlife of Billy Fingers?

    I can't honestly and fairly answer that. I feel like saying all of it...but that's not fair to the author and performers. Usually I relate to these subjects. This story doesn't feel real, which is what I'm interested in.

    "A must buy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I was patiently waiting and waiting for this to come out and I am so glad it finally hit Audible. Its a fantastic story about a brother who talks to his sister to tell her about the afterlife and proving to her that we DO in fact go on after dieing. Ive read tons of books on this topic, and this is in my top 5. A true must read.

    Story
    "Spiritual & Hip - goes past usual Astral & Cycles"

    For people who have already read books by Brian Weiss, Michael Newton, Robert Monroe, William Buhlman, Robert Bruce, Dolores Cannon, Eben Alexander, etc etc . . . all the various authors have managed to write about common areas and cycles and happenings beyond this physical Earth and existence or lifetime experience. They didn't write about these common areas intentionally, but readers who cover a broad swath of authors on these topics will start to notice the different authors describing the same places or procedures.

    This book touches on some of the commonalities reported on by these authors and others. But what makes it different is an experience described that goes beyond the reincarnation cycle. It's an exhilarating description of experiencing what it's like to be a Universe, or beyond Space and Time, or in light or mental realms.

    At the same time, "Billy" is very articulate when "he" returns to report back to his sister and help her accomplish his assignment to create this book. Billy uses complex vocabulary and historical references and sends his sister to look in iTunes for a certain song, or tells her to look up the meaning (via Google) of various names or words, and she finds another song on Youtube - so he appears to be very "connected" to information and communication abilities even from the "other side."

    Billy also either manipulates or predicts syncronistic and very appropriate symbolic events.

    The story is enjoyable, has a natural flow, and enough mystery to stay interesting from beginning to end. Fun listening if you are a person who likes to compare what people have found out so far about mystical topics that we aren't going to learn about from traditional academia or on the evening news.

    A beautiful and mystical story yet down-to-earth because it is so human with our flaws and drama - it manages to be an *experience* in a few places that have fascinating information and descriptions of the "other side" of death for Billy.

    It was the first time I read a description of what is past the reincarnation cycle. Very interesting book for the information-gatherer-type.

    Great narration.

    Story
    "Reality? Hardly. Sprituality? Immature."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Probably nothing. As a preemptive strike it is good to start an unbelievable book by stating that it's going to sound unbelievable.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen and David Colacci – was your favorite?

    I didn't relate very well to any of the characters. Regarding the performance, neither was distracting in any way, which for me means that the performers did a great job.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Afterlife of Billy Fingers?

    As a person in recovery, it was an amazing stretch for me to try and imagine a substance abuse counselor who is speaking with the relative of the recently deceased saying, "He just didn't trust his higher power. I was really disappointed in him." Nobody with any experience with a twelve step recovery program would speak that way in that kind of a situation. Once speaking from heaven, I was doing okay with the preliminaries but was thrown under the bus when the high level goddess got sexy and Billy thought she might be flirting with him. But the last straw is when Billy get's released from the cycle of rebirth. I need a little deeper explanation to swallow that one. I don't mind a spiritual world in which everyone goes to heaven, but to turn as basic a notion as karma into nothing of consequence undermines a lot this story's underpinnings. Of course, anything is possible and truth is stranger than fiction... in this case very much so.

    "Not easy to believe"

    Life after death is something I love to read about. This "true" story held me at the beginning, with emotion and interest, but started to lose me in the belief factor somewhere midstream. I really hope that this is indeed true and not someone's wild imagination. Seemed almost ridiculous that a family member from the afterlife could communicate so easily, as I have been longing for this to happen to me for years. Truth is in the eyes of the beholder - I guess.

    Story
    "Entertaining Novel at best"
    What did you like best about The Afterlife of Billy Fingers? What did you like least?

    Entertaining - but true? Hardly... just not realistic for someone in this life to speak with someone in that and not bee just a bit more excited. It came off like hey were having lunch at a fast food place.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Annie Kagan again?

    possibly


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was fine


    Could you see The Afterlife of Billy Fingers being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really "B: movie perhaps?

    N/A

    Story
    "A fantastic account of something extraordinary"
    What made the experience of listening to The Afterlife of Billy Fingers the most enjoyable?

    For me it was the subject matter. Also both the narrators helped to keep me engaged even more. Annie Kagan's account of the After Death Communication with her brother, and her brother's account of his experiences in the afterlife has made for uplifting listening. It has been helpful for me, as I've always wondered where my mum is and what life after death is like.


    What other book might you compare The Afterlife of Billy Fingers to, and why?

    I think this is in some ways incomparable with other books on the subject. Of all the books I have, this has to be the one that has had me rooted to the sofa from beginning to end.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen and David Colacci – was your favourite?

    Both!


    Any additional comments?

    I would quite happily recommend this book to anyone considering purchasing this title!
