This book has no equal. "What Dreams May Come" will consume you, and take you to a place that you have ONLY "dreamed" of. It touches so many issues that many find so dear to their souls (love, compassion, God, and the power of the spirit). If you read one book this year, make this the one. You will never think the same way about death. A person who is beyond hope because of some dreaded disease or in major depression should "read" and "re-read" this book. You will never look at life or death the same way again. Just like Jewel's song says "Only kindness matters". The movie is also good, but the book has more detailing. Take a look into your soul and find a new piece of mind and a new perspective of yourself! Make every day count towards a new goal and make your life what 'you' want it to be.
