Review: Biplane

Biplane Biplane by Richard Bach
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“What shall I be, this moment?”
I’ve been an avid Bach reader lately. I’ve read everything from Johnathon Livingston Seagull to A Gift of Wings.
Bach’s Zen-like prose touches someone like me and seduces me into following the story through to the end. There is always some gem I find that I savor. Even when nothing seemed to occur in certain chapters of this book, I read on, entranced still by words, even if nothing significant happened in the codes of those words. I can’t say that about many books I read, that the words alone entranced me, and that’s why I enjoyed this as much as I did. A simple story of a journey, yet so much more at the same time.
However, I do not believe that this story is for everyone. Impatient readers may not enjoy this, because there’s no action, mostly reflection. Those who practice mindfulness may enjoy this book more, due to Bach’s highly spiritual views.
Overall, I enjoyed it and I think that a spiritual novel like this is one that can teach you great lessons – as long as you’re willing to slow down and listen.
Highly recommended for the spiritual reader.

I am a literature geek working toward my Bachelor's in English with a concentration in writing. I love to read, and I'm always itching to write, especially creatively. I started "The Writer's Library" about three years ago, previously working with a Blogger platform before moving over to Wordpress. While I mainly post reviews of books, occasionally I will go ahead and review works in other media forms as well, such as music and certain television shows. No matter what I'm doing on here, I love to share with anyone who is willing to listen, and I'm excited to finally be on Wordpress!
