Chronicling the Lives of Ann & Daniel

Frances O'BrienO’Brien takes the reader on a journey that chronicles the lives of two people who have had the misfortune—or fortune—to have near-death experiences, or NDE. Both Ann, a television reporter, and Daniel, a former Marine severely injured in Fallujah, have near-death experiences.

A Benevolent Virus explores not just what these experiences were like for both Ann and Daniel but seeks to understand how these rare experiences go on to impact the lives of those who live this rare phenomena, and what makes it happen to some people and not others.

As you read this twenty-five chapter, 146 page soft cover book you’ll get a perspective on the good and bad parts of having a near-death experience. You’ll also see how both Ann and Daniel attempt to cope with this life altering event that impacts their lives significantly.

Scientific Data and NDE

Not only is A Benevolent Virus an eye opening look into the lives of people who experience death—before they die—it is also a journey into what happens in death, what about these experiences are like, and what the science behind it all is revealing today.

O'Brien's A Benevolent VirusO’Brien reveals these facts and opinions through the eyes and lives of the “real” people who live again after they die. And in fact, there are many people living those lives. According to the Near Death Research Foundation, everyday in the United States 774 people have near-death experiences. And whether you believe in them or not, at one time or another most of us have at least wondered or contemplated the unknown of death and dying.

A Benevolent Virus is much a written parallel to Clint Eastwood’s movie Hereafter which stars Matt Damon and explores the impact of near-death experiences on the people’s lives that have them.

However, O’Brien goes on to explore a few more topics related to near-death experiences such as what she thinks happens when you die, what the science reveals about near-death experiences, and why she believes the skeptic community of science will embrace these experiences as real.

A Book Meant To Be Written

O’Brien’s inspiration for A Benevolent Virus came from her own innate curiosity into near-death experiences. She felt that this book was meant to be written and she was the one fortunate enough to bring it to fruition.

She explains,

A Benevolent Virus is a book that wanted to be written and I had the good fortune to bring the work to fruition. Although I have never had a near-death experience, I have always been something of a spiritual seeker. It was my own spiritual curiosity that led me to devour almost every book on the subject of near-death experiences.

In A Benevolent Virus O’Brien ingeniously brings this experience often overlooked of near-death experiences to life and light. If you have any interest in this phenomena or have ever pondered death and life then this book will thrill you.
