Be aware that she writes about experiences which she had on different levels or dimensions and animate, but scarcely defined spiritual beings she encountered during those experiences. There is no tunnel with a light at the end, no powerful God or Jesus figure. There is, I feel, an important "different" take on the afterlife, and our meaning and place in the universe, as individual spirits. And, there is a strong semblance of a life review, but not in the traditional sense.
This book is not very long. It was an easy read, but it was intellectual in the extreme. Be prepared for concepts you may have never encountered before. Be prepared to read some of the book more than once, to get the gist of it.
A very strong point this book has going for it, is Sudman's revelation of the vast universal importance, on many planes of existence, of even the seemingly least human being. Standing ovation of applause for her revelation of this fact. :) Can't be stated often, or strongly enough!
Her style of writing is reminiscent of Jane Roberts/Seth in its intellectual range and sense of humor. There's also an interesting similarity to the flavor of the writings of the women in Casteneda's party, Florinda Donner and Taisha Abelar, sans the darkly ancient, somewhat lurid mysticism of that time period. Or maybe it's just that she writes a little bit like a somewhat amused anthropologist, even when speaking about her own experiences. A spiritual remove, perhaps, but one that is very enjoyable to read.
There have been some wonderful new books written in the past few years by people who have returned from near-death experiences. They all have a tremendous amount to offer. This one adds a truly unique voice to the mix, and one that is full of clarity and fresh air.
A day passed and one of the ideas from the book came to mind and seemingly forced me to mentally roll it around for a time. The next day another portion of the story captured my stray thoughts and only let go when I was forced to focus on other things. Upon being mentally prodded for the third time, I went against my customary practice, and in the face of the other unread books on my shelf, I reopened the book and immediately found myself completely tied up within it.
Each chapter now demanded a complete dissection, and my current occupation felt like an inconvenient disruption of my need to obtain a firm grasp of all the details in Natalie's story. If this is truly what we face when we "see the other side"...what is there to fear about death? And won't that lack of fear make life so much more enjoyable?
I highly recommend this book; if the basic summary I wrote above is all you get from it, fine...but it is my belief that there are truths here which will bring anyone to an increased level of understanding about ourselves and who we really are.
