Many Questions, Interesting Answers – and a very Big Riddle
Reviewed in the United States on June 4, 2016
First time was a charm, and so I ventured into my second Dolores Cannon adventure after her rather mind-blowing CUSTODIANS work. As in the latter, this one was equally fluid through the pages and maintained a reader’s continuing interest until the end. However, where CUSTODIANS was to some degree conviction-rattling in a creepy way, BETWEEN DEATH & LIFE led well into all those afterlife matters and left it with, well, a sense of mundane or ordinary feedback (from Spirit).
CANNON begins straight from the beginning by revealing the so-called Death Experience, and takes the reader along into the expected (e.g., Greeters, Different Levels, Guides, God, Satan, and the General Council), while also later shocking the reader with the unexpected (e.g., Imprinting, Walk-Ins), all of which presented in very understandable terms. I found myself reading along with my own questions, and as if on que, CANNON raises the same and I found myself thinking, ‘Thank You, Dolores’.
The big riddle, however, remains unanswered. This work is written in a question-and-answer style narrative between her and a number of Spirits providing the answers, which brought some monotony among the pages which struck me as odd. Odd, insofar as a variety of Spirits (personalities) all provided the same identical tone and manner-of-speaking, nearly robotic, oftentimes at length. Whether edited for contrast or explanatory reasons, it somehow left this worthy read “subject to question.” As it had once been told to me by a member of the Newton Institute, regressions are never as read in books but often involve multiple sessions just to narrate a meaningful, single paragraph. Direct, unedited or collated, quotes would have made this a near masterpiece experience.
Having said that, this read is still enjoyable with informational value, and I will continue venturing into her other works.
