The Afterlife of Billy Fingers:
How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There's Life After Death
I have to say I enjoyed Annie’s book. It was very brave of her to write this story. You can feel her hesitation and emotions behind what it might mean for her to share this with others. I believe that emotion is what made the book more meaningful to read. It is not easy to share such personal and intimate moments with the world. I love that she overcame that fear and was vulnerable enough to share the story with readers.
I am writing a book styled similar, on my encounters with my father in the afterlife. It can be scary to share such intimacy with the world, peoples reactions and words matter. So thank you Annie for sharing your encounters with the world.
The spiritual medium in me says, I have never heard spirit say we can become nothing. If we are choosing as a soul to go back to source it is possible that we become a part of, but never nothingness. Annie transcribes Billy saying that he is going in and out of conciousness and becoming nothing, yet everything. That right there was the hardest of the concepts for me to grasp within this book. It is possible though that Billy had his very own experiences centered to his beliefs, he may very well be choosing for himself to float around in silence and solitude. With that being said it would be his choice to drift in and out, possibly coming to visit you in your life Annie at different periods of time.
It makes me so sad to read some of the critical book reviews out thier on this book. Too many people with such judgement and criticism. We must remember that it is not our story to tell. This is Annie and Billy’s story and their experiences, period.
With all of that being said I would recommend reading this book. I believe this book to be a great read for a book club or organization. Many things could be shared and discussed amongst a group. Although I did not find any discussion points included with this book, it could be such a useful tool.
