    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.

    "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.

    He finished it, lol.


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

    "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
    "Good story But a bit bragidocious"
    Would you listen to Ghosts Among Us again? Why?

    Yes, I have as well. I liked it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghosts Among Us?

    James' uncanny accuracy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I had trouble turning it off many times.


    Any additional comments?

    James Van Praagh should have left out things such as the mention of the caliber of restaurants he'd eaten at, The cost of the wine, Champagne ect. Otherwise a good story.

    Story
    "Informative and eye-opening perspective"
    What made the experience of listening to Ghosts Among Us the most enjoyable?

    I have read similar books on the subject of spirits that surround us and how they may influence our lives. This one hits on important points that directly pertain to daily living without trying to convince or hard sell the concept but to merely "teach". It helps to have a genuine belief in this kind of thing or at the very least, an open mind to the possibility that ghost do exist and are there to guide and assist. I especially enjoyed the chapter on the different levels of spirit guides and also the chapter on how to protect yourself from the daily negativity and evil that exists in the world around us.


    Have you listened to any of Lloyd James’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to Lloyd James before, but thoroughly enjoyed his clear, strong voice. It is very easy on the ears.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's a book you may want to take in short increments as there is a lot to take in and digest. Especially if your desire is to increase your knowledge and skill at becoming aware of the present and the other dimensions that exist around us. This book also takes the time to illustrate many steps in honing your intuitive gifts.

    "So good I listened to it twice."
    If you could sum up Ghosts Among Us in three words, what would they be?

    This book is very interesting. It is told in many stories but they are stories you can identify with. I like the way it tells the story of James Van Praagh's life. This book gives you a lot to think about.


    What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

    I think Lloyd James sounds a little bit like James Van Praagh. I would have loved to hear James Van Praagh tell the story himself.


    Any additional comments?

    I just bought another book by James Van Praagh and I hope it is as good.
