Official Review: Another Son by Kurtis Bell

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

Sounds like the Humanist movement getting a strong hold...something I can't argue against. It sounds like this book has a great message. I'm glad to hear that while it was executed differently, it was done well.

Thanks for your great review!
I love the idea of just treating everyone fairly and with kindness. Thank you for commenting!

The practice of brotherhood and love for all, must come first above all things regardless of religion differences. If humanity can practice oneness; then the entire human race will be in the same class learning the one lesson of 'Love' that knows no religion.

Perfectly said! If only we would focus on love and kindness, we would be happy. Thank you for the comment.

The sheer number of important topics that Bell sought to address through this book is impressive and ambitious. I certainly appreciate the "love your neighbor" tone. Great review!

Interesting approach to this issue. It gives the reader high expectations about what is going to happen.
It's definitely more of a thinking book :lol: but I liked what the author had to say.

It's so important for people to accept other cultures, religions, etc. It sounds like this book "hit the mark" in expressing this message.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.
