illusions: the adventures of a reluctant messiah

Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah, by Richard Bach, is one of my four favourite books.

Interestingly, all four of these books are what I would describe as fantasies.

I began reading Illusions to someone I love, someone who is not in my life as I write this (maybe just for now, maybe for this lifetime, maybe forever. Who knows how destiny will unfold?).
