Publisher's Summary

What happens to us when we die? Where do people go? What do they see? What messages do they receive? Why are they allowed to come back?

The Day I Died brings together ten profoundly moving testimonies from people who have passed through the limits of human endurance and beyond. Around the world, ordinary people go about their daily lives convinced they've had a glimpse into the afterlife. Their eyewitness accounts often share uncanny similarities, and this book does justice to this beguiling subject by analysing dramatic narratives and shedding light on a phenomenon at the crossroads of the medical and the mystical.

Tammy Cohen presents ten intriguing real-life accounts, including a man who 'died' on the operating table and awoke with increased psychic abilities, a victim of domestic abuse who had a life changing unusual out-of-body experience, plus stories from people who had 'drowned' and 'died' of heart attacks.

Powerful, challenging and endlessly fascinating, The Day I Died celebrates both pleasurable and distressing near-death experiences when death came calling, but left empty-handed.

Narrator again...what's new.

Once again another probably outstanding audiobook that may be entertaining that has to be shelved before I even get to unwrap. These Narrators are absolutely pulverizing what could be entertaining informational and heartwarming stories that are highly desired to listen to but can't because I can't understand a word the narrator is saying and his accent is taking away from the entire experience. I suggest subtitles are added to audible.

Great book

I had a hard time listening to this book. The narrator reminds me of a news reporter.

Narrator is Very Entertaining

Updating my review after a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th listen. The first listen left me having trouble relating to the stories that applied to women with a male telling their stories. Now, I am looking for more books narrated by this guy. I have discovered his ability to inject entertaining humor into these stories like no other. Truly, if I'm being honest, I actually listen to this book more than 4 times. Can't say that about many books.

Comforting

Having just reach the age of 60 I am more aware of my own mortality. These accounts of near death experiences have taken some of the fear of dying away for me.

Lost interest

I gave up on chapter 3 as I just got bored of this book. I might try agin next year, but for now. I just can't get into it. Narration was GREAT though!

my taste, I don't like this narrator.

I would advise listening to the audio clip before buying. I cannot stand listening to this narrator. I think it is a matter of taste. It puts me right off!!! He's probably a nice man. I have heard him before and just don't like the way he talks.

Really interesting subject

What did you like most about The Day I Died?

It covered a unique and interesting subject really well

What about Simon Whistler’s performance did you like?

I did not like Simon Whistler's performance, he has a slightly sing song type voice that is quite irritating and sometimes inappropriate. However the book it self was really interesting so this made up for the voice.

Any additional comments?

Great book, I will listen to it again sometime soon.
