The Question was one of those books that read like a non-fiction book. The storyline was believable. It is a story that makes you ponder and think what if? This story had an interesting premise that kept me interested and wanting to see how it all played out in the end. It dealt with subjects that I believe for the most part could really happen in real lilfe. This story is one of wondering, spirituality, and finding the meaning to life. It also was a bit of a crime thiller at the same time and had some very raw and horrific moments. Some of the things that happened in this book felt very real and believable and I could see things like this happening in real life. This characters in this story were for the most part real and relatable. I didn't really feel very connected to any of the characters, however. At times the description and scenes dragged on a bit and I could feel myself losing interest or my mind would start to wander. Luckily though, it wouldn't last long and the book was broken down into chapters were the story would visit another character and scene and then it would grab my interest again. At times this story was fast-paced and kept me turning the pages, at other times it drug on a bit. For the most part the writing was fantastic. The transition from chapter to chapter however was a bit choppy and didn't quite flow so smoothly. I loved the idea of Unity in this story and truly do believe that this exists in part. Maybe at times it seemed a little bit far-fetched. This was fictional so it's to be expected. The beginning of the story starts out a little slow and some of the moments were a little dull for me. However, if you love military type books you will really enjoy it. That part of the story just wasn't for me. The middle of the story was really the meat to this whole book and the part that really grabbed me and held on. I was slightly disappointed in the ending. I felt like a story of this proportion and with this much depth and meaning should have given me a little more. It just kind of left me feeling like "that's it?" For the most part I really enjoyed the story. It didn't blow me away but for the most part was an enjoyable read. It held my interest and I found the subject(s) to be very interesting and right up my alley. It was the kind of story that made me think and contemplate and I enjoy a book like that. It was quite intriguing. I only wish that the ending had went out with a bit more of a bang. I would recommend this read to anyone who likes a book that makes them think, enjoys political events, and a bit of intrgue. * I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.

"The Question" by author R. Breuer Stearns is not the kind of book that I usually find myself reading but, it was an interesting one. It was a little hard to get engrossed in at first, but once the reader does it is thought provoking. The characters were very well explained and I liked the story. I also think that the title was very fitting. In the future I have to remind myself to ask why. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review and all of these are my opinions.

My Review The Question is a thriller. Protagonist Nate is trying to solve a Unity Theory. Through experiments, he learns that solutions to problems could be reached easier and with most accuracy if asked to a group- without letting them talk to each other. Nate tries to see if a million people would be able to solve the abstract question "Is there a God?" or " Does God exist?" What difficulties would Nate face while trying to solve the maze? Will he succeed? Is there more questions that he try to solve? How will his personal life change ? Grab a copy to know more. The book is a club of thriller, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary fiction. We can see glimpses of different realms of life. The story-line swivels to unforeseen directions which astonishes the reader. This is one of the most unique stories that I have reviewed lately. The message of the book is the ultimate spiritual reality conveyed in the background of an exhilarating experiment. Another quality of the book that impressed me is that author did not use erotic scenes to make the depth of the relation between Nate and his girl friend to the readers. If you are looking for a book with substance, you should definitely read this. On the other hand, if you are looking for an easy read, I would not recommend the book. There are a lot of characters in the book. Each one is given due importance, in accordance with their role in the story. Highlights The plot of the book is promising The writing style of the book is crisp. Characters are crafted well. The pace of the story is maintained well. There are a lot of twists and turns which forces the readers to hang on to the book. Drawbacks The beginning of most chapters are vague. There is a suspense in the beginning of almost every chapter, which was unwanted There were a few typos. The blurb is ambiguous. Reviewed for the iRead Book Tours Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book as a complimentary copy in exchange for a honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. One Liner One of the most creative books released lately.

R. Breuer Stearns in his new book, “The Question” published by Createspace Publishing asks us If you could have THE answer to only one QUESTION what would you ask? From the back cover: If you could have the answer to one question, and only one question, what would you ask? Do all questions have answers? Are two minds better than one? Are a billion minds better still? Are science and faith compatible? Does how you think determine what you think? Who would try to stop you from asking your one question? To what extremes would they go? The Question is an adventure story…a fantasy…fiction that you may wish, may believe, may know, is true. The way you knew you were reading good science fiction was you asked yourself if what you were reading could be true and if the answer was yes then that is how you knew. Let me state for the record that Mr. Stearns has given us good science fiction. This one is going to keep you guessing. “The Question” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. You get both sides of the question as religious zealots protest against doing this kind of research as blasphemy against God. While this book is not a fast read it is going to take up all of your attention so start reading early because once you get started you will not want to put this book down until you actually finish.

The Question. If you had one question what would you ask? Would ask about why the world is not at peace or something else. This book exams this question. I will say that this is an interesting read. It took me a bit of time to actually get into this book, probably around chapter 12 or 13 (the chapters tended to be short) because it was slow and sort of confusing. Then I started to really enjoy the plot and the characters. Nate is in the primary character who is part of a team called the Unity. They are own a quest to discover some answer. This would be a good book to those who like slower reads. This book was not written as a quick easy read like some people like. This book was written to make the reader think. It is a great concept in my opinion but some may not like it. Recommend: Yes especially those who like a book that makes them think.
