I read this book a few days ago and wanted to think long and hard before reviewing it. Here are my thoughts.

I have always loved Richard Bach but I can't give this book 5 stars based on loyalty rather than honest criticism.

I was expecting this book to feel insightful and new but instead I felt it held back a lot of emotion and feeling and I particularly expected at least some reflections on Richard's life while he went through this experience. I would have liked these to be spoken by Richard and not Donald Shimoda or the ferrets. What I'm trying to say was that this book held a wall up against any vulnerability or lessons learnt. At least it felt that way.

It was however, lovely to know that Richard is doing well and to hear about his courageous and fast recovery experience.

Perhaps naming the book 'Illusions II' leaves readers expecting the same high standard and insights as written in 'Illusions'.

I continue to cherish Richard's other books.

and I had not known, and instead of visiting your website a year after my last visit found a memorial - well - that's another probability and probably happened in some far off reality, but not this one. Thanks for making it, thanks for not dying yet, thanks for accepting the challenge of getting better and writing another book to let me know you are well and still talking to Donald and the rebuilt Puff. We both know everything has spirit, some of it spins off from us and lives another life in some other part of us that just happens to take the form of a plane or a Sheltie - glad you wrote this little book and see you around... Tim

I did not really understand whether the writer was writing tongue in cheek or not. So e of the sayings seemed to be fairly profound

I was so excited to see Richard Bach had written another book, a to find out it was a follow up to his beautiful book Illusions filled me with joy. If you haven't read 'Illusions' go and buy it right now, it's the best book you'll ever have the pleasure to read. I was so disappointed with 'Illusions II, it's nothing like Illusions, in fact it's rubbish. Please Richard write beautiful, spiritual stories like Jonathan Livingston and Illusions, don't just write for the sake of it or for the money.

When I read the first one, Illusions, it was a revelation, and a wonderful read. This, on the other hand simply felt like empty gesturing to fill pages. On the whole, I think it would have made a better book if it were composed of just the little sayings at the top of each chapter, but then it wouldn't really have been much of a book.

It was ok, but not in the same league as the original.

I loved "Illusions" - it influences my life to this day, and i'd enthusiastically give it 5 stars. Same for "Bridge", and "One". But "Illusions 2" reads like the original "Illusions" with most of the good parts taken out. Ok, it was good to hear what's new in Richard Bach's life - and especially that he's still alive. But to me, the new insights this book offered beyond the original, could fit handily on a single page. I found it particularly hard to read the list of all the wonderful, loving beings both real and imaginary who populate Richard's life, and not a single mention of Leslie Parish. This book holds that "love is the only thing that's real". Ok, then...

Bottom line for me - somewhat disappointing, given this author's other work, but for the same reason, i'll watch for the next title.

There is really no point in telling you what I think, it won't mean the same thing. However I can say that Richard has gone through a lot to get this book to you, so if you have read Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions, you should read this, it's not as though it will break the bank. If you haven't read the previous then I suggest you go and do that, and come back later. Remember, it's all for education or entertainment, or both.

As you read this powerful little book you will experience exactly what you believe as a reflection of your life. You may find the answers you seek, and you may not. Be willing to open your heart and mind to reveal the greatest truth of all - you are Love, fully and perfectly expressing.

Can't help but think Mr B had some expensive medical bills to pay and trotted out a few books to do so. This was nothing like the first - should be called 'Dissillusions'.

I was absolutely delighted to see that Richard Bach had survived his accident in Puff and used the disaster as another learning experience. Wonderful read.
