Book Review:Embraced by the Light




I had been meaning to read this book for a long time; finally found the time one afternoon, this past week.

To say I was disappointed by Ms. Eadie’s story would be an understatement. Her near death experience that has been so widely read and discussed, in my opinion simply did not ring true.



I  wrote a review on Amazon about this book, that pretty well sums up my thoughts on this book, in a nutshell:



  NOT buying this story!, September 11, 2010

By  Geraldine (Canada) –

This review is from: Embraced by the Light (Paperback) I finally got around to reading this book. I was not impressed, in a nutshell.

As a person who has had numerous interactions with the spirit world, what Ms. Eadie describes as her near death experience does not ring true. I don’t know if she was having a very vivid dream, a drug reaction or something else, how she describes life on the other side comes across as phoney and unbelievable. I was very disappointed with this book. A waste of time and money (I borrowed this copy from the library, I’m glad I didn’t pay for it).

Have you read this book? What were your thoughts on this author’s story?

  2. Haven’t read it, and probably won’t now. Did just finish The Shack. What did you think of that one?

  3. Geraldine, I wouldn’t have read it because in general I’m very sceptic of such topics; I think that, if they are real, such experiences should be kept on a personal level, that by being so publicized their credibility is much diminished. But, it’s interesting that now, after reading your review, I might borrow this book from the library to flick through it and get a taste of what makes it so bad… 🙂

  4. Thanks for weeding this one out!

    Part 2 of your parcel came…. I hope I can mail it Saturday!

  5. Thanks for the warning. *hugs*

  6. Hi Sandy L, Not familiar with “the Shack” Ill have to look that one up.

    Hi Vesper, You’ve brought up some very good points V. I agree about it being a very personal experience. Sharing, in a credible way is still fine with me but this book as I said did not ring true. Millions of people loved it though. As I said before, I’ve had many interactions with the spirit world, I’m sure this was a big part of my doubts about this book. Let me know if you give it a read.

    Hi Sandy C, Oh goodie! (about the package) 😉

    Hi Ruinwen, You are welcome dear friend. I only have limited reading time these days and I don’t want to waste it. this was a waste of time for me and actually made me sad. It’s stories like this that give the legit. ones about the spirit world, a bad name. Again, IMHO.

    Hugs to all, G
