Good book. It was fun of detail that you just can't get in the movie. It is the type of book that makes you think a little bit about what else is out there. It was just as good as the movie and has the same feel.
What Dreams May Come, the hit movie starring Robin Williams, touched numerous readers with its convincing portrait of life after death. The book is so different and much more uplifting as a husband risks his soul to save his wife from despair. A very "wow" read.
What Dreams May Come is a love story between average people who have lived a normal life together, but with a bond that transcends even death. It's also a different take on the afterlife, combining religious, scientific, and new age ideas in a way that demonstrates that birth, life, death, purgatory, heaven, and hell are what we make of them. (It's also little to nothing like the movie)
