A casual, friendly, conversational Afterlife book

I like the casual conversational way Richard Martini narrates this book about paranormal experiences, the reality that is beyond the physical senses, and the continued Consciousness that survives beyond the body.

Okay, it's so casual that if he flubs a sentence, he just stops and re-reads it. No professional editing here. But, that's okay. It's not like I've got a lot of people in my life I can talk to about these things, so I just imagine that I'm actually having someone talk to me about past lives, life between lives, consciousness that continues, the evolution that appears to be going on from life to life, the groups, and what experts have to share.

There's a broad range of topics covered here, and because many of the stories related are peoples own personal past life hypnotic regressions, or interactions, much was new and thus interesting.

I like these books, but do wish the photos were in a pdf, they sound interesting.

Poor Delivery

For a movie producer, the quality is quite poor as the hissing in background, traffic noise, missing pronounced words, corrected sentences are very frustrating. while he is charming, it does not overcome this problem.
As far as content, it is standard after life and LBL fare, with some good stories and amazing real life experiences. It is average reading in this genre but there are better authors/researchers to put higher on your list. Richard quotes most of them.

Entertaining and Informative

What did you love best about It's A Wonderful Afterlife Volume One?

Have read both Volume One and Two and thoroughly enjoyed each one. The topics of LBLs and our basic purpose in being here in human form, have always intrigued me and he covers them well.

What was one of the most memorable moments of It's A Wonderful Afterlife Volume One?

There were too many to list.

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

That we are the sole navigators of our journey and can learn at our own pace.

Any additional comments?

I am keeping this review very brief because almost everything that I would post has already been covered by other reviewers (the positive reviews). His casual presentation did not bother me as it did some others. I listen to my audible books while walking the dog so it's rather relaxing to just hear a normal conversation that's not so formal.

Very Interesting

Any additional comments?

I have read all the books he talks about here and find this topic very interesting. The narration was not professional, but I like to listen to books read by the author. He speaks really fast so I slowed it down to .5 speed and it was much better to listen to and easy to follow.

The narration was a turn-off

What did you like best about It's A Wonderful Afterlife Volume One? What did you like least?

I really wanted to enjoy this book. Indeed, I am interested in all "out of body" experiences and have been for many decades. By the description, this book checked all the boxes and I looked forward to listening to it.

Alas, the narration was a total turn-off! Mr Martini speaks so rapidly and with such a staccato delivery, I simply could not bear it. Perhaps this is due to the fact I live in a rural community and have learned to slooooooww down....! Used to be a city girl but after many years in a more relaxed and laid-back environment, I have learned to appreciate the language and certainly my own speech, by necessity, has slowed down. This may not be a problem for more urban listeners who still go at such a rapid pace, but for me, it was so distracting I was not able to listen to the end. Maybe I'll get the book.....don't know yet.

Would have enjoyed it more had there been a trained narrator who could read the book at a better cadence.

Insightful treatment of a dynamic subject

Where does It's A Wonderful Afterlife Volume One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is a unique volume in my library and its incredible subject "Life Between Life" (LBL) readings and related elements is a fantastically interesting arena of study. Based on readings from subjects being regressed under hypnosis to transcend their mind / brain limits to access past lives and the energetic experiences and learning between lives (LBL)
It's A Wonderful Afterlife brings a lot to the table continuing with the work of Michael Newton and bringing it to life with various colorful examples of lessons learned from between life encounters with guides and teachers and soul groups.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The amazing and colorful variety of wisdom gathered from those subjects who were brought back to their encounters with their "extened" self...and the lessons they learn from each lifetime

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

Spontaneous irreverence and on the fly narration a lovely blend of informal and intimate.

If you could give It's A Wonderful Afterlife Volume One a new subtitle, what would it be?

Learning Between Lifes and the power of the Soul Journey

Any additional comments?

I love this book It's A Wonderful Afterlife ....This book and -"Flipside"- Richard Martini's other audiobook on Audible are colorful and dynamic contributions based on Richard's video recorded sessions with top hypnotists trained at the Newton Center in Life Between life regression...The subject itself is incredfibly thought provoking .... I highly recommend Richard Martini's audiobooks and films as they have a unique blend of brilliant insight and artistic liberty. They are 5 stars.

I could not stop listening!!

Stop the world I want to get off please.
I thought life on earth was crazy and amazing... But I guess I haven't seen anything yet. I can't wait to go home.
I have told just about everyone I know about Its A Wonderful Afterlife. It's a truly delightful audiobook. I really enjoyed the way Richard read the book. His euphemisms kept me intrigued so intrigued I purchase Volume 2.
Richard Martini should become a professional book reader, he has a totally enjoyable voice I would purchase every book that he read.
I can only hope that one day I too can have a Life After Life reading maybe it would help me realize why I give and give and never get nothing back. And more importantly.. What is my Life's purpose on earth. What do I need to learn and why did I chose to come back. This book definitely got me thinking a lot. So on to the next book.
Thank you so much Richard Martini and Audiobooks too.

not a wonderful listen

this book is the reason why I don't like it when authors read their own material. I found the narrative rushed and so poor I couldn't even get through the book.

It's a wonderful book

I found this to be as interesting as the books I've read by Newton and Weiss. The stories in this book seem to validate many of the experiences I've had in my own life. This book offers the reader an opportunity to open their mind to an alternate view of what happens when we leave this human life.
Thank you for the work you're doing Richard Martini.

Badly narrated

This book is read so badly by the author that I could hardly listen to him. Too fast, too casual and too many stumbles.

Fantastic subject matter

Richard has written a great book here the only down part of it was that in reading and I think sometimes Richard knew the material so well that he rushed through the narration
