#OppositeDay @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TheKidUpstairs

Dreams and #Nightmares have a way of complimenting each other. I love this movie, but I still need to read the book.

What happens to us after we die? Chris Nielsen had no idea, until an unexpected accident cut his life short, separating him from his beloved wife, Annie. Now Chris must discover the true nature of life after death.

DGRachel I didn‘t realize the movie was based on a book. I literally ugly cried through all but the first five minutes of the film. I can‘t imagine reading the book. 3y

So... I'm not really present on Facebook, except for the occasional PTA post, but I check my memories first thing when I log on. What a coincidence that 5 years ago, I had just watched this movie... yesterday I finished his biography. 😭😭😭 #CrazyCoincidence

Dreams, dreams
Of when we had just started things
Dreams of you and me
It seems, it seems
That I can't shake those memories
I wonder if you have the same dreams too.🎶

A hauntingly beautiful tale of love, family, life and death...

IamIamIam This book is perfection. The film is fantastic too but completely unwatchable after Robin Williams died. Emotionally, I can't handle it. 4y

Caption- I love the film version of “What dreams may come” although it makes me cry. Excited to start this novel. I saw the movie as an 8th grader on tv and loved it. I watched it about a month after Robin Williams passed away and started crying uncontrollably. There are some stories that might be easier to read and not watch.

Linear I love to hear how this turned out for you I don't we ever seen the movie I would like to know if the book was anything Like the Movie 4y

This has one of the most thought provoking descriptions of the afterlife that I've read. One of those things that stuck around for me.

Redjewel_7734 Absolutely love the Robin Williams movie, but had no idea this one started as a book. I'm sure it's gonna wreck me even more than the movie does every time I watch it 😭 5y
VeryLazyDaisy I adore Richard Matheson's work. It is widely varied and never boring. So many of his books have that same "I didn't realize he wrote this" effect. Somewhere In Time is my favourite. I Am Legend was his also. He was such a talented man. ?? 5y

This is such a lovely dedication. I have the hardest time reading this book, I've tried and really want to read it, but it hurts me reading even the beginning 😩
