Publisher's Summary

Edited by Dr. Michael Newton, the best-selling author of Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls, Memories of the Afterlife is a collection of fascinating true accounts from around the world, handpicked and presented by life-between-lives hypnotherapists certified by the Newton Institute.

After recalling memories of their afterlife, the people in these studies embarked on life-changing spiritual journeys - reuniting with soul mates and spirit guides, and discovering the ramifications of life and body choices, love relationships, and dreams by communing with their immortal souls. As gems of self-knowledge are revealed, dramatic epiphanies result, enabling these ordinary people to understand adversity in their lives, find emotional healing, realize their true purpose, and forever enrich their lives with new meaning.

Great info Poor Reading

If you could sum up Memories of the Afterlife in three words, what would they be?

I did not like the way they narrated the book. With two readings and needing to narrate a dilogue why not use one reader for each part. Also they drop their voice so low you can't hear it in a car. Portraying emotions is well and good, but pointless if I can't hear it.

Someone needs to get fired...

Someone needs to get fired, dismissed without reference, for the audio production of this book. I don't blame the narrators, since both the male and female narrators, use the same breathless, idiotic delivery. It's the sing-song voice adults use to talk baby talk to infants. Let me ask you this, would a physics book be performed this way? I hated it so much this book sat in my library for about six months, even though I'd enjoyed Michael Newton's earlier work, until I realized that I could put the book on "faster" speed and that helped a little bit. At least enough so that I was able to listen to it.

Still, if you have a choice, get the written version of this. You'll thank me.

SOOOOOO Boring

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Some more excitement in the narration. I have listened to other Michael Newton books but this was just so monotone and boring. It really is painful to listen to although I am very interested in the content.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Haven't reached it yet. I'm not sure if I will finish.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration is one (slow) pace and really boring.

Good content, poor narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend the paperback as I didn't like the way the female narrator read her part. Her tone wasn't always consistent with what was happening during the LBL sessions--such as when a client was recalling a past life trauma. I found this irritating and distracting as it didn't seem like she was genuinely into it. I enjoyed this book when I read it but was disappointed with this audio version.

HORRIBLE Production!!!!

I wished I had heeded the warnings of other reviewers! The production is soooo bad, I'm not sure I can get past it, to absorb the actual material... it's that bad.
First, production is something I know... professionally... 40+ years as a recording engineer.
Berkrot gets too wrapped up in character, whispering into inaudibility (blame the producer, and engineer*), followed by full volume on the following sentence.
Xe Sands... my god! The only time I've ever heard someone read that fast was my doctor, dictating medical notes for transcription. She also has an annoying habit of not separating words... like in music, tieing two notes together. Twice, I checked to see if my player's transport was playing at x1.5 speed, or x2!!!
And- the contrast of the two flip-flopping (alternating) cases was akin to relaxing in a hot-tub, only to be dropped unexpectedly into an ice cold river. And slack I may have been inclined to cut her fizzed when she said "liberry", instead of "library". She may have had other narration gigs, but she's no pro. She needs voice lessons... broadcast training would be well worth it.
The production staff ruined this entire project with apathy.
The engineer shoulda flagged the excessive reading speed, but more- shoulda used a compressor/limiter to even out the explosive dynamic range of Berkrot's performance.
The listener should not have to 'ride the gain' just to hear the program material.

Voice narration not as bad as some say...

I was totally prepared to be majorly annoyed by the narration of this book but was pleasantly surprised. It's really not THAT bad. It's not the BEST I've heard but it's definitely not as bad as some people have reviewed. I absolutely intend on listening to it again. I love hearing the hypnosis sessions and find them inspiring and insightful. Love this book!

interesting read...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

this is another book Michael Newton write about afterlife... but I think I like his other two book far better, although , this is still a interesting read with all different case studies. there are no new things in this book.
If you really interested in the subject, yeah, I guess you can read it...

Who can stand these horrible fake voices.

Oh my gosh. Sample this first. The reader does odd spacing voices and accents for each person. It is so annoying. Ruins the book. A waste of my money.

Another great book by Michael Newton!

I've read his best sellers Jorney of Souls, Destiny of Souls and Wisdom of Souls. I found this book to be very intriguing and moving just as the others. However, it was a harder read. I found myself rereading or relistening to certain parts of the book that were not clear to me. I am going to restart this book and listen again.

Not as expected

Not as expected based on previous books. Voice too low at times...boring narration...lacks energy and organiztion.....reference to LBL but if you inquire them, their prices are ridiculously high!!!
