I was intrigued by this one, as it wasn't your average autobiography, love story, or New Age philosophy book, sort of a combo of all three, written in a non-conformist way. It was one of those books I couldn't put down until I finished it. If it wasn't for the fact that the happy couple didn't stay happy and went their separate ways (though not until sometime after this was written) I would have given it another star. ( )

Autobiographical book explores Bach's soul mate relationship and his financial trouble with the IRS. Bach's Jonathan Livingston Seagull is a best seller and he embarks on an adventure. As a result of Bach's incompetent and apathetic managers, the author loses about $800,000 of his newfound wealth. Moreover, none of the managers seems the least bit sorry and are certainly not going to be held responsible for the losses. Even though the losses are so large that Bach will not have any tax liability, the managers do not inform the IRS of this fact and Bach ends up owing $1 million. After 4 years, a large amount of trouble and grief, Bach claims bankruptcy.
John Marquart, Bach's tax attorney hired by Leslie, tries his best to sort out and settle the matter. During this time, Marquart relays how the IRS works and details many of the agency's absurd policies and desire to avoid blame at any cost.

Bach believes that every event in one's life is self-imposed to further one on a spiritual level. As Bach explores this belief, he and Leslie rebuild what was lost and focus on building a new life together.

My son, Randy, gave me this book and I love it. I also have the audio version on cassettes which l can't part with even though I havent the equipment to play them. ( )

Based on Richard and and his wife, Leslie Parrish.
Bestselling author Richard Bach explores the meaning of fate and soul mates in this modern-day fairytale based on his real-life relationship with actor Leslie Parrish. "This is a story about a knight who was dying, and the princess who saved his life," Bach writes in his opening greeting. "It's a story about beauty and beasts and spells and fortresses, about death-powers that seem and life-powers that are." Yes, it is all that, and more. On the earthly plane this is about the riveting love affair between two fully human people who are willing to explore time travel and other dimensions together even as they grapple with the earthly struggles of intimacy, commitment, smothering, and whose turn it is to cook. Their love affair and happy ending inspired many enthusiastic fans. Years later, some of these fans were devastated to discover that this match made in heaven didn't manage to stick (the couple are no longer together). But in an interview, Bach explained that lovers don't have to stay married forever to be lifetime soul mates. Read this as a lesson about love's enchantments and possibilities, but don't count on this book to keep you and your mate on the bridge across forever. --Gail Hudson ( )

oh, where to begin??? i guess i should start with the fact that an older book by about 7 years of his (illusions) is one of the books that has most impacted me in my life. perhaps it was the timing in my life when i first read it, and each timing that i reread it or referred to it. so maybe i had high expectations coming in. i suppose i could give 1 star because the ending of this book starts to approach some of what is good about illusions, but the rest of this book is ... let's just say i kept reading it to see how angry it could make me, how much he could make me want to reach through time and throttle him, and because i've not not finished a book i've started since the third grade. he's not a great writer, but that's forgiven because he's got "a message," i guess. maybe. but here's the thing. well, 2 things. firstly, this is a sort-of memoir, and the man writing it is a colossal, monumental douchebag. i don't know that i've ever used that word to describe someone, but wow it fits this guy. and secondly, it's like he learned absolutely nothing at all of the lessons he wrote about in illusions, which is dispiriting, to say the least. reading this, you wonder how in the world it's the same person who wrote that little gem, and you think if even he can go back on those lessons so very easily, and be this terrible person who seemed to remember none of what was good from that book, then what truth is there in it? how could he have written illusions and be the person who wrote this book? how can leslie, who seems an amazing woman, stand to be in the same room with this man? i'm actually okay with selfishness as a life prerogative; i think it makes sense to live for yourself and how you see fit. but to do that at the expense of others? not taking anyone else into account? hurting whoever you want along the way because how they interpret it is on them? asshole. how this is billed (and reviewed!) as a love story is beyond me. he treats people like shit, including and especially the woman he claims to be his soulmate (it doesn't help that we know he's divorced her, and divorced the next woman as well). and because he - after being a truly incredible piece of crap human being for so long - finds love in spite of himself, we call this a love story? i call this a sorry excuse for both a memoir and a human being, and with very little to learn about love in it, other than what to avoid. i can't stand this man. maybe i read this book at a time that i am not open to it or ready to hear it or whatever, but let's face it - we want to learn our lessons from people that we can respect even remotely. maybe that's a shortcoming, and my lesson to learn. i can still learn from this book, especially the ending and from leslie in general, and not just how not to be an asshole. but in the end that's the overwhelming lesson in this book - not to behave like the author.

Richard Bach, bekend van 'Jonathan Livingstone Zeemeeuw', is een verwoed sportvlieger. Op zekere dag verkoopt hij echter zijn vliegtuig en gaat op zoek naar de perfekte vrouw. Hij heeft vele vriendinnen, totdat hij Leslie Parrish ontmoet. Beiden hebben al een huwelijk achter de rug, zijn dus voorzichtig met emoties en totale overgave. Richard is een bekend, gefortuneerd schrijver, en Leslie een ex-filmster, die nu succesvol aan de zakelijke zijde van de filmwereld werkt. De onzichtbare, hoge muur die Richard om zich heen heeft opgetrokken brokkelt langzaam af, maar toch wil hij zijn vrijheid nog niet opgeven. Door foutief beheer verdwijnt zijn miljoenen-imperium. Leslie blijkt zijn enige hulp en toeverlaat. Samen beginnen ze helemaal opnieuw: ze houden lezingen over hun doorleefde ideeën en gedachten - ze oefenen astrale uittreding uit het lichaam, om het leven na de dood te leren kennen. En tot slot publiceren ze dit boek. Voor lezers die in de perfekte liefde geloven en in astrale ervaringen. Normale druk.
