Curious Lives – Richard Bach
Richard Bach has a knack of storytelling that is not only compelling and insightful but also extraordinarily entertaining. He weaves the tapestry of truth using the silken threads of life and adventure. His books are a delight for an adventurous soul.
Here again in ‘Curious Lives’ he takes us on a journey into the world of magical realities, if only we have the vision to see things with the clarity and simplicity he hopes to ignite within us.
His understanding of the human predicament is so chillingly real, that it compels us to take notice of this child like story, with the seriousness and sincerity of a problem solver.
Using an allegorical story of ferrets, he convinces us how easily our world could have been different if only we could have cultivated the qualities of love, friendship and trust.
Curious lives takes you on an adventure, where you become a child again, revisiting the lost wonders of simplicity, friendship and values of human life.
Be prepared to spend the next few months in reflection of the lives of these lovely ferrets, which will not only influence you but also alter your process of thinking and living.
After Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Richard Bach’s ‘Curious Lives’ is his next in the line of adventure tales to touch you, transform you and rekindle your spirit. Read this book at a snail’s pace to ensure that you don’t miss what he wants you to see.
There is so much to admire in this book, you might have to read it a couple of times to get the real intended story out of it. You can just read it as a children’s book, an allegorical story, a book about human values and spirit, about the failure of the human system and so much more. How ever you read it, you will not skip to love it.
