    1. Kim Sheridan, a trained Naturopath and health researcher, spent six years researching and writing a remarkable book. I think it likely that this book will in some way permanently change the consciousness of every animal lover – whether believer, skeptic or agnostic. The writing style is lucid and accessible, and the contents are so compelling that I devoured it in record time. The genesis of the book (recounted in the early chapters) was the author’s own journey from scientific-minded skepti [...]

    2. When my cat, Pookie, died of cancer at only 13 years of age in 2011, I was devastated. We were soulmates on a deep, soul level. Life had been challenging for me, and she was always there to comfort me by putting her paw on my cheek, gazing deeply into my eyes, and softly meowing, "It's okay, mom. I'm here, and I love you." She was the first cat I ever had in my life, and we'd developed a deep bond. I always say that half of my heart went with her when she left the physical world. Since I'd alrea [...]

    3. Full disclosure: I am a pet lover. I believe in an afterlife. (This is consistent with my childhood upbringing.) I believe that animals have souls that journey to another dimension when earthly life is done, i.e an afterlife. (This is not consistent with my childhood upbringing.) I bought this book after losing a much beloved pet.Given all of the above, you would think me predisposed to love this book as so many others have done (based on Sheridan's rating and the fact that a sequel to this boo [...]

    4. I adore this book! It is such a blessing to read, especially when one is dealing with the loss of an animal. I came across this book about a month after my beloved Meira (german shepherd/husky mix) had passed away, and it was very heart warming to read, and full of great and intellectual information. In my youth, I also, like the author, used to be a skeptic, but that mindset has long since gone extinct.I highly recommend this book if you're dealing with the loss of a pet, or even for an interes [...]

    5. The author specializes in communications with animals who have passed over from this world. The stories seek to bring comfort to those who have lost a beloved pet by showing that their souls go on.

    6. As a pet owner I was interested in reading this book. I loved hearing people's stories of being visited by the spirit of their beloved companions and how their experiences bought them comfort.While I enjoyed the book, there were some parts that I didn't like. The author talks mostly about her Rat Rescue program, and I know she was teaching the importance of how rats are animals and should be treated with kindness, which I agree with. However, I felt she spent too much time talking about the subj [...]

    7. Ok, I think this book truely was a little out there, but there are some comforting aspects to what it has to say about our animals and the life hereafter. I am skeptical of the reincarnation aspect this book implies, but it does provide comfort in the way it reveals the love that exists between an owner and their animals. If you aren't an animal lover, you just don't get it. But, if you are, you will get that connection and love that exists and is special to all of us who love our babies.

    8. This book is an absolute must-read for anybody who is going through the loss of a pet. It gives you hope that someday you will see your beloved animal again (maybe even sooner than you think). She has collected stories from everyday people and they are inspiring and give you hope. I had a hard time putting this book down.

    9. This was a really interesting book. It gave you alot of things to think about. It also helps emotionally when something happens to our dearly loved furbabies. Just knowing they are up there being our little angels and that in time we will be reunited with them at the bridge in time, makes e feel so much closer. i really appreciated this book and its perspective.

    10. The main problem I have with this book is this; The Bible clearly states to stay clear of medium's. and this book is full of it. I was hoping this would be a authentic resource for healing. I get the sense of intuition here, but not the literally listening to them talk to your mindrry- I give it a no star rating

    11. This book is good for someone new to the idea that the spirits of animals live on. But I got bored with it pretty quickly because the are just too many stories. It did, however make me realize that rats can be great pets and I would kind of like to have one. Unfortunately that would be kind of hard with my cats.

    12. This book is 410 pages long- it could easily be half. Too many examples of stories who "happened in real life" some of which are ridiculous. The author "convince those who are already convinced" and the most interesting parts are HER stories.Having said that, I learned a lot, and I DEFINITELY now go and try to communicate with my dog.

    13. I won't rate this book since I did not finish it. However, I found it very comforting when my pet died. I didn't have a lot of free time, or I probably would have finished it. But, from what I did read (first 10 pages), I enjoyed it.

    14. I couldn't even finish this, it made me feel worse then before reading it. I was all short story's about the say thing and it made me feel bad because I wasn't experiencing any.

    15. If you have ever shared a deep bond with an animal, you will cry from cover to cover. Skip chapter 20 if you aren't a vegetarian, and don't want to be!

    16. A great confirmation that what I experienced shortly after my cat had passed on, was real. Such touching stories. Thank you, Kim, for writing this book.

    17. A wee bit too new age-y and judgmental of carnivores for my taste, but would be comforting had one just lost a pet

    18. A little new-agey, but a very comforting read at this time in my life. I pray that what she says is true.

    19. At first I was like, "this book is hilarious, ha ha ha!"But then I was like, "why did I read 100 pages of this? What am I doing with my life??" so I had to stop.

    20. Kim Sheridan's life experiences and compassion for animals is truly amazing. This book provides enormous confort to anyone who has ever questioned our loved ones journeys beyond Earth.
