Summary

The sequel to Monroe's Journey Out Of The Body is an amazing parapsychological odyssey that reflects a decade of research into the psychic realm beyond the known dimensions of physical reality.

Excellent

A very instructive manual. Much knowledge and guidance for those who are inquisitive and aware. Very well read. Some descriptions need concentration, but very well worth applying your mind. Love the epilogue, good guide for life.

Good content of the book.

The narrator is really good, the best I have listened to. The book itself is OK. The trip around somewhere some time was told with far too many details, quite boring sometimes. Also, it seems there is an American Fetish that everywhere in the world physical or non-physical there is somebody talking about America, longing to visit New York. Some times it made hard for me to believe in certain stories as it had some American connection.

Love these books!

I loved reading the Robert Monroe books and loved listening to them. The narrator does an excellent job. I hope they create an audio book for the third title.

Started well

This book seems to start where the first left off but then descends into fantasy.

Essential and profoundly entertaining.

A mind expanding and hugely helpful tool for mapping and navigating the true nature of reality! Hugely gripping and compelling real sci-fi'esque accounts alongside solid eye opening truths! A must read!

You are more than your physical body . . .

Far Journeys is the second of Robert Monroe's trilogy and is my favorite. I've read the actual book twice already but listening to the audio version is a real treat.

Kevin Pierce is awesome as the narrator.

Journeys Out of the Body was interesting, but described Robert Monroe's observations when he was still questioning his experiences. In Far Journeys, this second book, there is more about his out of body experiences and Robert Monroe is a good writer. Even though I've read this book before, his eloquent usage of words makes revisiting his book just as enjoyable as before. I'm looking forward to the audio version of the third book of the trilogy, Ultimate Journey.

This single book had a tremendous impact on my life and beliefs. It was a catalyst in a mind expanding search for more information and changed the way I spend my time . . . this life.

I'm not certain this book is for everyone, but if a person is looking for answers as to why we are here, who we are, what we can do in this lifetime . . . there were quite a few answers in here (for me, your mileage may vary.) And, the story that winds through these pages is simply amazing.

It's another of many books that are becoming available these days about Consciousness beyond the brain matter contained in our skulls.

Mind Blowing

Where does Far Journeys rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top

What was one of the most memorable moments of Far Journeys?

All of it

What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

All of it

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have liked to but the information presented precludes any dream of it. Half way thru I was so shaken I had to stop and spend time to get a handle on what Monroe is saying. I always thought I was not my body. Monroe provides the rest of the story.

Any additional comments?

This book should be required reading in all senior highschools.

Amazing

It is so interesting to witnessing the founder of OBE ascend to his evolution. This second book is an awesome progression from the first book which I enjoyed immensely. If you do get lost in the chapter where he goes into a dark realization, make sure you listen very carefully to the next up and coming chapters because it turns out to be very positive and beautiful especially how it unfolds. Many people stop reading the book after that chapter and go into denial or depression as he himself did as well. He begrudgingly and eventually gets back in the horse so to speak and delves back into OBE to get an explanation to this newfound unwanted information. You will be pleasantly surprised but you have to make sure you listen and re listen until you fully understand the chapters that follow because he does explain the misinterpretation or miscommunication and it is in a subtle way so you may miss it. This is a must read and I will definitely read and or listen to it again!!!

Terrific, consciousness expanding book

Great narration. Mind blowing. Totally engrossing, and believable (in a sense)... Loved it.

A journey through some very wild territory.

"I Still Marvel at How Powerful Thoughts Are"

Wow. Just wow. I can't believe this is a true story. I even laughed with some of this book. Excellent. OOBE testimonies, left-right brain hemi-sync technology, physical sex being nothing compared to "giving love" or "meeting minds" during astral projection and much more. Some very good instructions that we should all know and understand as well.

Enjoyable and interesting

Very enjoyable listening both due to the content and the excellent quality of the reader (Kevin Pierce). Kevin Pierce is the best reader that I've heard on Audible to date. I listened 2 1/2 times through to really get everything out of it that I could. Robert Monroe, the author, provides a very interesting history of Earth. I look forward to my own out-of-body experiences so that I can find out about all this stuff for myself.

Very Disappointing

Extremely disappointing. I was initially drawn to Monroe because of his apparent earnestness and dedication to trying to understand his OBEs. At first, this book seemed like a good follow up to Journeys Out of the Body, with explanations of his later OBE/conscious­ness studies and experiments... Then out of nowhere it became a first person narrative/science fiction novel with way too many inconsistencies to be taken seriously. Monroe was flying around with beings who could read his thoughts and explain the mysteries of the universe but needed to pause like a foreigner learning English nearly every other sentence to say things like, "how do you say? "Ah yes, (insert random 80s idiom)." The aliens also loved using English acronyms, which was especially odd since they were all supposedly communicating without language. Monroe skipped past most of the insight and explanations OBE seekers actually care about to instead deliver an elaborate series of hokey dialogues and new age wet dream alien adventures. I could have forgiven some of this if it had been presented as an illustration of actual experiences he had, but there was no such disclaimer.
He also included a massive amount of personal reflection, which was irritatingly like reading a too-long word salad full of technical terms and historical and philosophical points he seemed to think added credence to the world view given to him by his alien friends. He provided his own overview of the entire history of existence more than once in the text, and both times seemed disappointingly full of contemporary ideas and infirmation that were by no means revelatory. A lot of people seem to gobble this stuff up, but it struck me as disengenous and not at all what I expected from Monroe. The fact that he started the book off talking about how he had run into difficulties getting out of his own body and had been struggling to reconcile information provided by other OBE participants at his institute made it seem even more suspicious that he managed to suddenly completely solve all the mysteries by himself... not using the scientific method, research, or analysis of his signature detailed records of OBEs but through Hollywood style adventures with his spirit guides
