Publisher's Summary

Annie Kagan is not a medium or a psychic, she did not die and come back to life; in fact, when she was awakened by her deceased brother, she thought perhaps she had gone a little crazy.

In The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There's Life After Death, Kagan shares the extraordinary story of her after death communications (ADC) with her brother Billy, who began speaking to her just weeks after his unexpected death.

One of the most detailed and profound ADC's ever recorded, Kagan's audiobook takes the listener beyond the near-death experience. Billy's vivid, real-time account of his ongoing journey through the mysteries of death will change the way you think about life, death, and your place in the Universe.

In his foreword, Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life after Life, explains the phenomena of walkers between the worlds, known to us since ancient times, and says that Dr. Kagan's thought-provoking account is an excellent example.

    "I found comfort in this story"
    Where does The Afterlife of Billy Fingers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found this story uplifting and did not want it to end. So far this wee book ranks high in my Audible library.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Afterlife of Billy Fingers?

    They were all uplifting and I thought there were many interesting points, but the idea that we were from 'Tribes' and possibly recognised one another here on Earth explained a very strong emotion of 'knowing', without a single doubt, all about a chap I worked briefly for. He alluded to having the same feeling too in our final communication.


    What does Susan Ericksen and David Colacci bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Their voices were clear and expressed the moment and the emotions well.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Take heart, life has only just begun.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not for everyone, and the recently bereaved may not be ready for it. But when your heart has settled down a little and you are not crying so much, then you may want to listen. It wont stop the pain but it does give comfort. I speak as someone who has lost three loving brothers, all too young 32, 35 and 66 years, the most recent a few months back. The first loss tore my then young heart out, I was distraught for years and it changed me. I so wish I had had this book then, but, I too have to learn and I think I am learning.

    "Good book"
    Would you listen to The Afterlife of Billy Fingers again? Why?

    This book and My Life After Death: A Memoir from Heaven by Elisa Medhus are my fav two books on life after death. If you put the content from both books together I think you get a fairly comprehensive picture about what's ahead. It's quite liberating to know every thing has a purpose and it's all going to be okay.


    What other book might you compare The Afterlife of Billy Fingers to, and why?

    My Life After Death: A Memoir from Heaven by Elisa Medhus

    Story
    "Made up rubbish! "

    If you are looking for proof of the afterlife you will not find it in this book.

    I am certain of one thing through experiences and that is there is life prior to birth and beyond death.

    You may have and had many lives but you are who you are now only once. I am beginning to realise that you can have memories of a future time as well as historical.

    No one comes back to visit time and again nor as vividly as this author suggests. The best analogy I've heard is...A caterpillar probably imagines becoming a pupae as death but you never see butterflies hanging around caterpillars.

    "Lovely content, performance not my cup of tea"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Afterlife of Billy Fingers to be better than the print version?

    Unfortunately no. I would have preferred to have read it myself. Much as I love audiobooks, I found the tone in which it was read, had the storyteller sounding exasperated, This in places could have been appropriate, although I took the content of the book (which corresponds to my beliefs anyway) to be of a peaceful nature, It did with no offence intended, slightly ruin the experience for me as, had I read it myself would have found it more soothing, sorry!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is as I said how I feel about things anyway so I enjoyed the content as a whole


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen and David Colacci ’s performances?

    I wouldn't say a flat out no but I didn't enjoy it in this book


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No but it made me feel connected to the realm it describes whilst listening, even though I do anyway, but sometimes good to hear things out loud

    Story
    "Spiritual & Hip - goes past usual Astral & Cycles"

    For people who have already read books by Brian Weiss, Michael Newton, Robert Monroe, William Buhlman, Robert Bruce, Dolores Cannon, Eben Alexander, etc etc . . . all the various authors have managed to write about common areas and cycles and happenings beyond this physical Earth and existence or lifetime experience. They didn't write about these common areas intentionally, but readers who cover a broad swath of authors on these topics will start to notice the different authors describing the same places or procedures.

    This book touches on some of the commonalities reported on by these authors and others. But what makes it different is an experience described that goes beyond the reincarnation cycle. It's an exhilarating description of experiencing what it's like to be a Universe, or beyond Space and Time, or in light or mental realms.

    At the same time, "Billy" is very articulate when "he" returns to report back to his sister and help her accomplish his assignment to create this book. Billy uses complex vocabulary and historical references and sends his sister to look in iTunes for a certain song, or tells her to look up the meaning (via Google) of various names or words, and she finds another song on Youtube - so he appears to be very "connected" to information and communication abilities even from the "other side."

    Billy also either manipulates or predicts syncronistic and very appropriate symbolic events.

    The story is enjoyable, has a natural flow, and enough mystery to stay interesting from beginning to end. Fun listening if you are a person who likes to compare what people have found out so far about mystical topics that we aren't going to learn about from traditional academia or on the evening news.

    A beautiful and mystical story yet down-to-earth because it is so human with our flaws and drama - it manages to be an *experience* in a few places that have fascinating information and descriptions of the "other side" of death for Billy.

    It was the first time I read a description of what is past the reincarnation cycle. Very interesting book for the information-gatherer-type.

    Great narration.

    "A must buy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I was patiently waiting and waiting for this to come out and I am so glad it finally hit Audible. Its a fantastic story about a brother who talks to his sister to tell her about the afterlife and proving to her that we DO in fact go on after dieing. Ive read tons of books on this topic, and this is in my top 5. A true must read.

    Story
    "Spoke Directly To My Heart"
    Where does The Afterlife of Billy Fingers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right at the top. But then again, most books that I read come into my life at the exact moment I'm meant to hear/read them. So there are many ranked #1.


    What does Susan Ericksen and David Colacci bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I prefer to listen to profound words, especially the first time I'm hearing them. Both Susan and David did a wonderful job speaking Annie's and Billy's words.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughter. Tears. Peace. Gratitude. Joy.


    Any additional comments?

    Those who are meant to read this book will find it. For me, it was recommended by a friend I was visiting for the weekend. I downloaded it via Audible just before my drive home. I drove hours through a terrible snow storm and yet I was in heaven (pun intended) listening to this beautiful book. If you are ready to hear it - it will change your life. Truly. Thank you Annie for following your destiny and putting this into print!!

    Story
    "Reality? Hardly. Sprituality? Immature."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Probably nothing. As a preemptive strike it is good to start an unbelievable book by stating that it's going to sound unbelievable.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen and David Colacci – was your favorite?

    I didn't relate very well to any of the characters. Regarding the performance, neither was distracting in any way, which for me means that the performers did a great job.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Afterlife of Billy Fingers?

    As a person in recovery, it was an amazing stretch for me to try and imagine a substance abuse counselor who is speaking with the relative of the recently deceased saying, "He just didn't trust his higher power. I was really disappointed in him." Nobody with any experience with a twelve step recovery program would speak that way in that kind of a situation. Once speaking from heaven, I was doing okay with the preliminaries but was thrown under the bus when the high level goddess got sexy and Billy thought she might be flirting with him. But the last straw is when Billy get's released from the cycle of rebirth. I need a little deeper explanation to swallow that one. I don't mind a spiritual world in which everyone goes to heaven, but to turn as basic a notion as karma into nothing of consequence undermines a lot this story's underpinnings. Of course, anything is possible and truth is stranger than fiction... in this case very much so.

    "Not real to me"
    What would have made The Afterlife of Billy Fingers better?

    I am an avid reader of NDEs and such spiritual events. I tried to listen to this but it never got better for me. It sounded like a poorly written novel and I had no stomach to listen to the end. I can't say what would have made this better for me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing by Anita Moorjani


    What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen and David Colacci ’s performance?

    It wasn't serious enough, maybe. It was more like listening to a YA novel.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Afterlife of Billy Fingers?

    I can't honestly and fairly answer that. I feel like saying all of it...but that's not fair to the author and performers. Usually I relate to these subjects. This story doesn't feel real, which is what I'm interested in.

    "Very disappointing. Sounds made up!"
    What disappointed you about The Afterlife of Billy Fingers?

    It's not believable at all. I thought it would have been a truthful account of his experience. Instead it is an account of his sisters experience going through her grieving process. It sounds like either she is hallucinating on a psychedelic drug or she is dreaming the whole thing up to ease her pain.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Annie Kagan again?

    No, lost her credibility.

    "I didn't care for this book"

    I am a huge fan of spiritual books, especially ones that deal with subjects such as this one, however, I just didn't buy a lot of what this author was saying. The messages in the book are good ones, but with all the amazing psychically sensitive people in the world, never have I heard one say, nor have a read a book, that claims a relative who crossed over actually spoke to them so clearly that they gave day to day experiences on the Otherside for such a long period of time. Sure, people write about communicating with those who have crossed over, but not as easily as listening to someone standing next to you speak. It made me wonder why she was so special that she was able to continue her relationship with her brother in a way that no one else can. I realize that some people are more sensitive than others, but I just don't believe her story. However, the book was not a total waste, as I said, there are very positive messages and metaphors - which you have probably seen all over Facebook by now.
