When Richard Bach crashed his sea-plane “Puff” after accidentally coming into contact with some high tension wires, very few in the medical fraternity offered the acclaimed author any hopes of survival. Bach however staged a miraculous recovery waking up from a week long coma and within a short span of time even reconstructed “Puff” to resume his passion – flying!
Illusions II (a sequel to the mind boggling Illusions I) is the result of this violent experience. Though not as riveting and engaging as its predecessor, Bach manages to provoke sufficiently by using a judicious blend of metaphysics and spiritual imagery. Donald Shimoda’s effervescent presence is a bonus.
