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.

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.

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.

I have a hard time believing Van Praagh

What would have made Ghosts Among Us better?

I felt it was more fiction than non-fiction

Would you ever listen to anything by James Van Praagh again?

Nope - I don't think he is legitimate.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The presenter was ok. It wasn't hard to listen to....just hard to believe.

Any additional comments?

I think this book should be moved to fiction

Miss it!

Boring; not well written; does not hold your interest; it was an ordeal to listen long enough to made sure it was not getting better. Do not bother.

A Classic from James Van Praagh

What did you love best about Ghosts Among Us?

James Van Praagh delivers another awesome book, the stories and messages that James communicates are both life affirming and life changing. Just wish that James was the narrator, but the voice of the narrator is decent.

  • Overall

Very Interesting

Worth the read and very enlightening. However, he tends to come across as very self absored or self importnat (I did this, I did that, etc.). Because I liked how he described the other world, which makes a lot of sense even being from a Catholic background, I've bought another of his books. Worth the read.

Totally enjoyed this book

I really enjoyed this book! It was well written and very easy to listen to. James Van Praugh explained ghosts and the afterlife well and also spoke of cases that he worked on and also on his own life experiences. Even if are a believer of the after-life or not, it still gives the listener an opporturnity to think a bit differently.
