Karen is amazing. She is the best animal communicator I have ever had the pleasure of having read my animal companions. Her book is so affirming. It will help you understand your loved ones are there forever, and looking after you. One of my favorite discoveries was that their way of passing is not really a part of their realities. The joy and love they feel while alive is what carries over into the other side. Life affirming. Her book brought me great joy.

This book was such a big help for me. I lost my Simon on January 4. I never knew how hard it was going to be when he passed away. It was the first time I had ever heard anything about Rainbow Bridge. It gave me hope that I will get to see my Simon again.

Joel R. Dennstedt for Readers' Favorite

In this age of heightened psychic understanding and awareness, animal communication and its practitioners have gained both increasing credibility and respect. Consequently, a genre previously devoted to the afterlife of humans has expanded to include the afterlife of animals, and in her book titled on this theme, Karen A. Anderson brings to the ranks of Dr. Dolittle successors a variety of uniquely warm and pleasing stories regarding our furry pets and frie

***Disclaimer: I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.***

I have to be really honest - this book was a disappointment. I really wanted to like it so much and hoped it would help me to find some answers. I had hoped that it would explain how you can detect and read messages your pet(s) sends from the Afterlife. But instead it just felt like a 170-page advertisement from the author for her services. What eventually put me off completely was when she started bringing Christian beliefs into the fold

I won this book through goodreads giveaway. Thank you! This hasn't influenced my review of the book.

Apart from whether or not I believe in an afterlife in general, or one for animals in specific, I think the writing style in this book is very pleasant. I really raced through the pages and it was easy to stay focused on the book. I got really sucked into it. The build up of the book made of lot of sense and the chapters naturally flowed from one into the next. This book is very well done and the

Lost my Black Lab puppy-baby, Bodie, last week. I always thought the Rainbow Bridge was lame and then I found myself feeling like my life depended on its existence. Bodie was only 2. I have felt so cheated by his loss. The grief is immeasurable. Maybe I acted too soon. Maybe I could have done more. Maybe, maybe. I may never know. I hope he always knows how much he was loved and how missed he is. Thank you, Karen, for writing this book. It has brought me some peace of mind, hoping that my Bodie f ...more

This is a book won on Goodreads. Is written by a psychic. I don't believe in psychics or mediums. However, I do love animals, especially dogs. Do know when I am absent from the body and present with the Lord that my first thing will be falling at the feet of Jesus. Not looking for my departed dogs. Yes, I do believe their will be animals in heaven. I also believe animals are not meant to take the place of humans. Feel the best honor to a loving animal passing on is to give another animal a lovi ...more

I did win The Amazing Afterlife of Animals; Messages and Signs from our Pets on the Other Side by Karen Anderson, however it is well worth the list price. If you have ever loved and lost an animal this book is for you, but be forewarned you will cry and maybe even sob, so I highly recommend reading this book when you are alone. Not the ideal airplane read. It was so fascinating reading all the different stories and what animals think. So reassuring to know the pets you love are always with you. ...more

The only reason I even gave it two stars is I love the subject matter. This book was so poorly written. Just 2 sentences about this pet and 2 about another. You didn't get invested in any story or even her story. It felt so thrown together.

Very insightful. Answered questions about euthanasia I was searching for.

I feel better about my decision I made with my dear dog sugar.I was afraid he would not forgive me.I wondered if I made the right decision and I actually feel better now.

My border collie died last year. She was 15 years old and a member of our family. I’m still grieving. However, this book has been a great comfort to me. I recommend this book for anyone who has lost a beloved pet.

I do believe in psychics and I'm sure Karen Anderson has special gifts. Chapters were very short and the chapter on reincarnation left me with many questions.
