I am on a mission to tie up loose ends around here. To that end I would like to give a full accounting of finished things you might be interested in.
Item #1 is "Proof of Heaven".
Have you read it? It caught my eye after I had a patient tell me about a near death experience he had when he was 9 years old. I am going to cut right to the chase and tell you that it was not a compelling read. BUT I was comparing it to sitting by the bed of a man who was dying as he told me how he was not scared to die because he had been there before and knew he had nothing to fear. The simplicity of my patient's story captivated me in a way that the science and details of Eben Alexander's experience did not. I know. It's not a fair comparison. I'm just saying.
Item #2 is this summer dishrag I finished knitting. It was also better than Proof of Heaven.
Item #3 is this audio book I started AND finished in a little over a week. It's one of those books you plow through because you can't wait to figure out who did it. I enjoyed it thoroughly and hope the author writes more stories for this very likable main character. Did I mention it's read by Judy Kay?
Judy Kay is the voice of Kinsey Milhone in Sue Grafton's "alphabet series". Judy Kay can make any story better with her fabulous reading voice. Come to think of it, if Judy Kay would have narrated Proof of Heaven and I had listened to it instead of reading it on my iPad I probaby would have liked it. Seriously.
