    Story
    "We've been lied to"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Fans of Ghost Whisperer.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I was looking for an informative read about ghosts in today's society instead of a six and a half hour plug for Praagh's show.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a horrible book, just not accurately represented as what it is.

    Story
    "Makes you want to be a more loving person"
    If you could sum up Ghosts Among Us in three words, what would they be?

    All loving God.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That we are here to learn to be all loving and are not going to be punished for making mistakes along the way.


    What does Lloyd James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He finished it, lol.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That when you die there is no pain and you feel free.

    "not great if you're looking for ghost stories"

    Mr. Van Praagh's focus here is to explain how HE perceives the world of ghosts around him. It's a little self-important, and he's not the best narrator. The last 1/3 of the book is info about how to become psychically grounded and what you need to go "ghost-hunting." If you are looking for individual ghost stories, (like I was), there aren't too many to be found in this book.

    "This book really made me think."

    I can't say the number of times I had to stop the audio because something was said that really struck home. I used to have a dream often as a child that was disturbing to me. It wasn't until after I "read" this book that I dug a little deeper and discovered how on the mark my recurring dream was about something I could not have known about as a 5 to 6 year old. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

    "WHAT???"

    I am a believer in the supernatural. I believe that there are people who are given the gift of being able to communicate with those who have passed. But this guy is NUTS. I had never heard of him, and thought the book sounded interesting. The stuff he says is SO out there, as if he knows exactly from the minute we are born to the minute we are reincarnated what happens, how it happens and why. I went along with it until he started talking about Abraham Lincoln coming to him with a group of others to help support him in his mission. The dude is so full of himself, and full of something else that I dare not say...I hate that I gave this fraud a dime of my money or a minute of my listening time. He is the type of fake that gives naysayers an example of absolute nonsense.

    After telling my friend about the LUNACY I was listening to, she told me she had heard of the guy and that she had seen him and felt the same way. Apparently he is famous, but clearly as a sideshow freak. God bless him, he's making a ton of money.

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. Not even interesting as total fiction.

    Story
    "Ghosts among us"

    It's all hard to believe but an interesting book. assuming his experiences are all true, he states lots of opinions as if they are facts (just like all ghost/demon self proclaimed experts).

    Story
    "Fantastic! I loved this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I feel that everybody needs to know more about the existence of ghosts and spirits because we can't ALL be crazy, which means they DO exist!


    What did you like best about this story?

    His experiences in dealing with seeing ghosts as I am an enthusiastic watcher of "The Ghost Whisperer."


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he spoke to the "extra" character on the set of "The Ghost Whisperer" about her mother being behind her, following her around the sound stage.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Life and death...which is which?


    Any additional comments?

    Great story. I'd love to listen to more books by James Van Praagh.
