Dr. Elisa Medhus never believed in life after death. As an accomplished physician, she placed her faith in science. All of that changed after her son Erik took his own life and then reached out from the other side. Intimate, heartbreaking, and illuminating, this audiobook takes listeners on an incredible journey from grief and skepticism to healing and belief. Based on Medhus's wildly popular blog, Channeling Erik, My Son and the Afterlife provides answers to the most universal questions of being human. At once tragic and uplifting, Erik speaks from the other side with candor, wisdom, and depth as he describes his own experiences and provides new answers about the nature of souls, death, and the afterlife - answers that have the potential to change our lives forever.

"Dr. Elisa Medhus offers a heartfelt, deeply moving story that invites [listeners] to question their own beliefs of love, loss, and the afterlife." (Eben Alexander, MD, author of the Proof of Heaven)
well... yeah, just barely.
I believed the content is not fiction, and I believe the story is true and the intention of the book is really good. I can see the life between life realm described here is somewhat believable. However, I have to be very honest that this book is not very well written. The 2 star I gave here is for the book's intention.The deceased teenage Eric 's very foul language is just not received well by me at all. The kind of teenage attitude and seemingly lighthearted tone might be very endear and familiar to his mother , but to the reader , it seems very shallow and distasteful at times. I really feel because of the juvenile attitude, it actually discredit the book content's precious message quite bit. As reader and strongly believed in afterlife and spiritual realm, I had hard time with his way of talking and describing the afterlife even I do believe it. On the other hand, the conversation between the mother and son is somewhat repetitive and boring. Some question from the mother is really the roll your eye kinds of question, such as : do you have bus driver or plumber job on the other side... similar kind of questions asked repetitively ...
