The book opens with a relatively brief refresher of what exactly the Other Side is, and a nice glossary of terms the reader can expect to encounter along the way, including summaries of all 46 "life themes." All very interesting and easy to grasp, in typical Sylvia fashion. Then we get into the actual chapters on the celebrities, which more or less follow a format of 3-5 pages of bio, career highlights, etc, and another 2-3 on what they're currently up to on the Other Side (assuming they even made it there). Again, all very easy to read, if not a little rushed. What struck me as particularly corny was the fact that this information is relayed to us via Francine, Sylvia's spirit guide, from interviews she has apparently sat down and conducted with the deceased stars. The idea of spirit guides doesn't bother me, because I know from first hand experience how very real they are. It's the fact we're getting supposed direct quotes from these people that comes off as a little suspect. Not that I'm totally declaring "lies!" here but I also can't help but feel Sylvia maybe filled in the blanks herself with assumptions based on common, general knowledge of how these people led their lives on earth. For this same reason I also find it incredible that, despite there being no class system and nobody being better or more prestigious than anyone else on the Other Side, that most of these celebrities still hang out and socialize amongst each other as they did in life and still seem to be viewed as celebrities. Browne mentions a few of these people who had 20, 30, 40 lives, but still seem to maintain the visage and persona of the celebrity we knew them as here on earth. The actors still do plays, the singers still do concerts...what about their interests/professions from other lives? Not to mention, if you did in fact have 40 previous lives, that means you potentially have 40 sets of parents and hundreds of children to reunite with upon returning "Home." The stars she talks of here only seem concerned about their most recent kin; Elvis and his mother Gladys, living together again, for example. Maybe I'm overthinking this, but it all seems to get rather convoluted and I think she's doing her readers a disservice by presenting these anecdotes in an overly simple, happily ever after sort of way that, honestly, I just don't know if I buy.
I want to stress again that I'm not meaning to publicly denounce Sylvia or somehow disprove the existence of the supernatural and/or any possible entity known as God. That's not what this is about. I wouldn't be reading these kinds of books if I didn't believe in those things, or at least have a mind open enough to be intrigued by them. But I'm no sheep either, and as someone who fancies himself to be quite in tune with his sixth sense as well, I can't help but be wary of some of the things Sylvia puts out there as I see and experience more things for myself. But anyway, coming back to this book specifically, it's an entertaining read and fun for what it is, but it also struck me as bordering on tabloid sensationalism which took her credibility down a notch in my eyes. I'm actually attending one of her lectures in a couple weeks, so who knows, maybe she'll expand and elaborate on a few points.
I now humbly retract all previous comments and submit that I enjoyed every page in this book. More importantly, I believed it. Why? I'll just say that the information "rang true" for me on a visceral level. This physical and emotional response has never failed me in life, so I trust in this reaction to new information. The active, richly complex life in "heaven" that Sylvia Browne describes is one we can all look forward to. Which is helpful and actually quite thrilling when you remember, in the words of Ram Dass, "We're all just walking each other Home." This is a great read. You'll have to decide for yourself if you believe it's true. I for one do. Thank you Sylvia!
