    About "Bryce Anderson"

    1. Bryce Anderson

      I was raised in Missoula, MT, which is the setting of my book Finding Reason Body of Knowledge I read for Entertainment, Education, and Enlightenment, basically in that order The best books have a blend of all three, in my opinion I think I did a pretty good job of incorporating all three into my book I absolutely love reading to my kids, thus my reviews cover a broad range of books I don t think it s fair to just throw a rating on a book and call it done, so I try to put at least one line of review on all the books I rate to justify the rating In general, my ratings are pretty high, probably because I do my homework on the book before I start reading it thus I go into the book expecting a 4 star read For the most part, I stick to fiction My memory is pretty good, and I build my writing off of it The most common question I get asked about Body of Knowledge is Is that a true story which flatters me, because I think that s what good fiction is all about I ll leave you to decide the answer on your own.

    1. Finding Reason a review from Curt HarveyLet me preface by stating that I am not a big fan of organized religion I do believe that God exists, but not in the form that has been hammered into the heads of the spiritually needy by the self proclaimed representatives of God I don t tithe, and I rarely pray because my God gave me free will and expects me to take care of myself in this life.I was loaned this book by a dear and special friend of whose beliefs I know nothing This fact is worthy of menti [...]


    2. I read this book when it was titled Body of Knowledge which was prior to the author landing a contract with Ridan I have no doubt that this is one of the books that will endure generations, as they say, one of the Next Great American Novels.Body of Knowledge, written by Bryce W Anderson from here referred to as BoK , has a simple and intriguing description printed on its back Initially, it was this cover text that pulled me in ____________________________ An ant has two stomachs I know this beca [...]


    3. I received this book for free through First Reads.As many of the other reviews have stated, this book is intriguing, mysterious and captures you attention within the first few pages Although I appreciated the quick, easy reading I found that I greatly enjoyed the first half of the book much than the latter Half way through the book I got bogged down and turned off by the historical biblical accounts that were being described and explained However, this is just my personality, as I have always b [...]


    4. I came across this book from a fellow friend on GoodReads The blurb on the back of the book was intriguing and I read a few pages from a Kindle download and I wanted to find out The book tells the story of Bryce and JP who spend their evenings on JP s porch discussing everything from Dr Seuss to the existence of God and one s own mortality The book is a short easy read written in a straight forward prose that does not interfere with the reader being swept away by the intellectual ponderings of [...]


    5. Finding Reason a book that stays with you long after you finish turning the last page I m still walking around in a haze in a good way While the writing is straight forward, and easy to understand it is a book with deep meaning There are layers of information, and emotion written into each chapter It is written in a way that made me reflect on my own life, information I ve gathered over the years, and a desire to study .It s so hard to review this book without giving too much away It is a profou [...]


    6. It was destiny, predetermined, it was in someones future that they could not yet recall yet, that this book was brought to me It kept showing up all over on my recommendations, I finally marked to read and BAM email from the author Since then, I have been able to get to know the author from a distance, I have helped broaden his reader base, and I have been enlightened from a small book This book is VERY thought provoking It is a book you won t put down Both my husband and I read it in two sittin [...]


    7. Evidently a small publishing house has picked up Bryce Anderson s FANTASTIC Body of Knowledge and given it a facelift and new title Not sure I like the new title but I AM SURE I loved what was written between the covers I ve copied my review from BoK below Good Luck Bryce and hopefully we ll be reading of you soon Completely and utterly fascinating from page 1 to the the final cover Highly recommend for all readers seeking to improve their thinking skills and boost their intelligence quotient M [...]


    8. I loved this book Wait, I LOVED this book Still not conveying it I LOVED THIS BOOK Having said that, this book is not for everyone If you have read Danielewski s House of Leaves, or watched What The do We Know , chances are you will enjoy this book as well Though Body of Knowledge is reader friendly than House of Leaves and religious than What The do We Know It is a very thought provoking book through a series of conversations been the author and his mysterious neighbor ranging from ants, deat [...]


    9. I do love a book that has a memorable ending and this one definitely does The author wrote the perfect set up for a sequel and I ll be interested to hear about J.P.Mysteries are not my first choice of genre, but this one is of a different ilk and not easily defined It may be a challenge finding this book since it s been picked up by a different publisher and the new title for the book is Finding Reason The original title was Body of Knowledge Not only was the ending perfect, so was the excerpt [...]


    10. spoiler alert Wow, this was a real page turner I read it in one sitting on a work night which I don t believe I ve ever done The premise was quite interesting, and while I m not someone who has much if any faith in the validity of the Bible I now have an urge to dust mine off just to read the New Testament again The character JP was spot on, behaving very much like I would expect a near immortal disciple of Jesus to if he were still walking the earth The narrator did a pretty good job of honing [...]


    11. This is really quite a success story for Bryce in that he started with a few hand assembled copies I originally read this when it was a self pubbed book titled Body of Knowledge I like the new title better.It is not the type of book I gravitate toward when I choose my reading and I actually thought, based on the title Body of Knowledge that it would be something similar to Natalie Angier s The Canon which was awe inspiring.I ve done a sort of speed reading of Finding Reason and it seems like a b [...]


    12. In reading Bryce Anderson s Body of Knowledge I was trying to determine if it was an autobiography with fictional overtones, a complete work of fiction made to seem real by using the author s name and biographical background, or intended as a non fiction work At the end, I m still not certain It is an entertaining and enjoyable read as we accompany Mr Anderson as he grows to know and love his new and mysterious neighbor, JP The logical and methodical approach to determining JP s veracity regard [...]


    13. Bryce Anderson is moving up in the world A new publisher has re vamped his great book Body of Knowledge, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and given it a new title and cover while keeping the amazing content Here is the review of this great book but with the original title Body of Knowledge is quite an enjoyable literary work It s charming, witty, and thought provoking It is a story of faith, friendship, journeys, and self discovery Bryce Anderson is open and honest as he reveals what I m sure is very [...]


    14. I received a signed copy of this book from Bryce a week or so ago, and having just finished the lengthy works of Dumas, I wanted to tackle it Here s a small sign of how much I m enjoying it I got on the train at Penn station for my train ride home, and 40 minutes later, I was halfway through the book and almost missed my stop I don t think I ve read something I ve enjoyed this much in a while I can t wait to finish it on the train ride home today I m definitely hoping to see something from this [...]


    15. This book is not what I expected at all I really enjoyed it I bought the book from the author and it was worth every penny This book brought out the intellectual side of me that I forget to use at times and it was very inspirational with humor too It really helped me to view life and time in a new light I would recommend everyone to read this book I am curious what religion the author is Either way, I loved this book Bryce, I wanted to say, well done When you finish another book I will most defi [...]


    16. I had a hard time rating this book I really loved the idea of the book, the storyline was excellent, and the back cover description is absolutly perfect However, the author didn t really give much credit to the intelligence of his readers He spelled out a lot of things that the reader could have easily assumed deduced for themselves Which was kind of ironic given the story about being good teachers On a technical note, its not the best written story, but I felt that the story made me think.


    17. This was a surprise to me Although I can t really put into words what I was expecting, I just know I wasn t expecting to go where the book went While there are religious tones to it they are there to expand your knowledge and make you think about what you know and what you thought you knew I really did enjoy the book immensely even though it isn t my genre, which is one of the reasons I enjoy so much.


    18. This book was nothing like what I thought it would be, which made it better It s a book to read slowly and mull over not one to just devour and throw back on the shelf One could read it numerous times and still get something new from it every time I think anyone who likes something new and unexpected would enjoy it and I plan to read it again and share it with others It was enlightening.


    19. People come into your life for a reason and then leave Not until later do you realize the impact they had in your life at that time This book demonstrates this and our willingness to take something at face value, on faith alone It s not a tear jerker, not religious, or very spiritual, but there is an underlying current of peace and contentment throughout, encouraging you to think about your own life This now has a home in my constant re reads Donna Freeman


    20. This is a fascinating book that will have you thinking about many things on many different levels It leads you to a self examination of your life and priorities, taking cues from biblical references Thought provoking and entertaining, it is hard to put down you just want to see where it is going.


    21. WOW What an amazing book Great job Bryce Anderson This book will stimulate your mind with deep questions of life and eternity Yet it is an easy to read, don t want to put it down book I would definitely recommend this book to everyone If you loved The Shack, you will love this book If you did not read The Shack, read this book Finding Reason should be on a Best Sellers list


    22. I finished the book a couple of days ago, and yet I feel as if I just put it down This book stirred emotion and thought like no other has done in the past It may be a quick read, but it will have a lasting impression.


    23. Do you believe what you believe This question comes to mind when reading this book It s incredibly thought provoking from a non judgmental standpoint I loved it


    24. Having read the first book, I knew what to expect in this version, and it didn t dissapoint, I would recommend both versions.




    25. wow great book, would have never thought of the plot plus i love thatbyrce put so much of himseel into it not just his name it seemed so real 10 out of 5 stars i said it right



    26. This is a republication of Bryce s Body of Knowledge.I really enjoyed this book it is hard to discuss the plot without revealing too much of the book at once If you like Daniel Quinn, then you will like this book it s a mental journey, a thought experiment, and a discussion starter.
