Shishir Kurup is a fine choice for narrating this wide-ranging book. This exploration of life after death grapples with everything from the nature of the soul to the multiple levels of existence, and Chopra approaches these topics with equally varied tools, including sharing a parable, sketching an anecdote from his youth, and quoting from a host of people who have been through near-death experiences. The result wanders a bit, but through it all Kurup's narration is fitting. He sounds approachable but learned when speaking as Chopra, and he emphasizes quotes by making shifts that depict the varying accents and socioeconomic levels of the speakers. Overall, the discussion is easy on the ears, even when Chopra moves past concepts too quickly. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
