Now, that's NOT to say that 'The Dead' isn't a competently written novella, overall. In fact, with a clever, insightful, and even somewhat unique writing style, the author actually not only does a better than average job of offering up a number of personal theories and opinions about the mysterious paranormal world that ever lurks "beyond the veil," but he may also almost miraculously manage to quickly coax the average reader into forgetting (mostly) about how seriously non-mainstream his obvious personal quirks and belief systems actually come off as being.
In other words, if you're already open minded enough to buy the notion that Mr. Allen was, once upon a time, a highly exalted, half alien hybrid in Ancient Egypt, during one of his numerous previous lives (when he was apparently tasked with "sowing the seeds of love," so to speak, for the benefit of the female human inhabitants of Earth, for most of the duration of that particular incarnation), or his contention that he does indeed have a "spirit guide " (and who doesn't believe in all that, right?), then you'll most likely seriously enjoy reading the book.
Because this particular literary work by author Allen really does seem to be less about actual ghost stories (as the title may imply to some -- 'cause hey, it fooled me!), and a lot more of a litany about the author's "New Age" style experiences and philosophies. And that's okay with me, I guess. I'm game. Well... mostly. And I really did enjoy reading the book, and that's all that really matters, ya know.
After all, 'The Dead' really is an entertaining and thoroughly engrossing little collection of personal life experiences. Okay... some more or less "enlightened" (or certainly more skeptical) folks will most likely get frustrated with the text as soon as they crash head long into the half alien hybrid, past life scenario, but truly, if you keep reading, and are willing and able to reserve judgement (and if your eyeballs don't get too tired from rolling around in their sockets, as if you're a smart ass teen who just ain't buyin' any of it), then you may actually learn a little something from Gare Allen's take on what happens to "The Dead" when we all do eventually pass on. To be sure, there's some neat stuff in this book, and even if you don't eagerly gobble it all down, hook, line, AND sinker, I'm pretty darned sure that you most likely will be thoroughly entertained.
Gare offers us a candid glimpse into his search for self-acceptance through his explorations of past lives, and his travels through the inner world of spirit. With humor and wit, Gare shares memories that are sometimes terrifying, often painful, and always entertaining. We experience vicariously the cosmic truths that lead Gare to understand and ultimately accept his karmic past, and to discover how those past life experiences influence his current existence.
There is an authenticity and beauty to Gare’s writing that not only brings his personal experiences to life, but also opens the way for the reader to experience his or her own spiritual truth. But the book can be enjoyed on many levels, and even readers who don’t believe in the paranormal will find The Dead a fascinating and entertaining read. The Dead captivated my mind and my heart. It is a highly recommended must read! For outstanding fiction check out Gare’s 7 Novella series, available on Amazon. The series is based on the experiences he shares in this intriguing memoir.
