Bach explores nature of reality and self in "Hypnotizing Maria"
In Hypnotizing Maria Richard Bach once again leads the reader through a tale exploring the nature of reality and the power of the human spirit. Much in the style of previous titles like "One," Running from Safety," "Illusions, the Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah," and the much acclaimed "Jonathan Livingston Seagull," "Hypnotizing Maria" explores a few days in the life of flying instructor Jamie Forbes and how they give insight into the nature of his being. A chance occurrence on a cross country flight (Bach again makes use of his love of flying to weave a beautiful story) leads Jamie to ask questions about his past experiences and how they continue to affect his life's journey.Was this review helpful?

As is his custom Bach does not spend extensive time on character development; rather he focuses his attention on the philosophical elements of his story. Long time Bach readers will find many of the ideas and concepts familiar. But the themes of self determination, the relationship to our fellow huiman beings, and the question of "might we be something more" are enjoyable again and again.
