Afterlives of the Rich and Famous
Look into the Lives of Our Most Beloved Celebrities--After Their Deaths
For the first time, renowned psychic Sylvia Browne reveals how cherished stars are using their talents since their deaths. Which celebrity is working on a cure for cancer? Who specializes in welcoming the newly departed to the Other Side?
From longtime regrets to newfound passions, "Afterlives of th...more
I spotted it while surfing around somewhere and thought it must be a joke. "No such-a thing," as my m-i-l would have said; in this tome, crazy Sylvia updates us on the latest doings of the celebrity dead.
So far I've learned that Paul Newman is continuing his philanthropic work, and Marilyn Monroe welcomed Joe DiMaggio when he came Home. You might be interested to know the straight dope on her death. She did not commit suicide. S...more
Thought provoking and very absorbing, I worked my way through it quickly, enjoying all of the histories of the people mentioned and what their lives are now that they've passed over. In the beginning of the book, Sylvia rehashes topics from her other books for new readers, which clarifies subjects mentioned in later chapters. That in itself is worth the read.
While I recognized most names listed, there were a...more
Really, all you'll get here is a "directory" of random celebrities and historical figures. There's a generous biography of each, some more accurate than...more
This book, like Browne's previous efforts, is broken int...more
I find certain things striking. One celeb she wrote about, Sammy Davis Jr, was involved with Anton Levey's Church of Satan for a while. I would think that should be mentioned when talking about afterlife, karma, etc, but somehow that bit of personal history was omitted. George Harrison was supposedly met by his guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, but George died in 2001, and the Maharishi...more
I liked that they all seemed to get to live in a little house by themselves and have little...more
The actual amount of time devoted to the "afterlives" of the rich and famous is small. Most of the book puts forth the author's description of the spiritual world, recycled from her n...more
Sylvia Browne has amassed a large body of work that I believe is integral to the spiritual development of this planet. At the same time, I have noticed her later books often contradict her earlier ones. She is sometimes judgmental and always opinionated. That said, it should be noted Ruth Montgomery also wrote on the same themes and her w...more
The beginning of this book was a description of what th...more
I walked past this book on the READ ME pyramid at the library and couldn't resist. Who doesn't want to know what life after death is like firsthand?
While the reading is fast and easy, with a short bio on each famous face, it's a fluffer. Turns out that most of...more
I would like to see a sequel to this book.
An interesting read.
The book was also inspiring to me. It showed me that everyone is human, makes mistakes, and feels guilty about them. It showed me that what may seem like a perfect life to us, may not be to the individual living it. This gives me encouragement to live my life and not look at my mi...more
