    One thought on “Reason for Existence”

    1. The revised, edited version following initial, abbreviated version on . . .Reason for Existence by Richard Botelho will be or has already been released, and I was asked to contribute a brief, honest review on . This will be a longer and a bit more detailed (in some regards) than the one, initially posted on . Reason for Existence is an example in my mind of a “first contact” mission that would be afforded to us as a combination hello, wake-up call, and “coming to Jesus” event, all roll [...]

    2. DNF 26%I won a copy of this book on my sister's current account,Nicoleta (The Cover Hoarder), through a giveaway back in October, and I've well, I've forgotten about it, up until now. She brought it from home and I took up the task of reading it or at least making an attempt to read it.I dunno if it's the genre or the premise but this book is REALLY boring. Or let me rephrase: I can't find anything in this book that I can get attached to. Not the characters, not the plot, not the setting, not [...]

    3. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This is a curious sci-fi novel blending extra-terrestrials, world politics and the all too real threat of biological warfare/nuclear war. Featuring an alien who ponders the existential questions of life - who is trying to save the world - all while attempting to understand the truth of human love creates an intriguing premisebut it didn't meet its potential. The novel read like a technical manual of theories/organiz [...]

    4. Thanks to the author and publisher for making this book available to GoodReads Giveaways.This is a pretty good story that the reader will finish quickly. It is suspenseful, and thrilling, and I could not put it down once I started. You can tell Mr. Botelho is a philosopher, as he has a way of describing humans and our flaws that is very accurate. It is a science fiction thriller, and the author mixes current events with aliens and conspiracy theories. The story will definitely make you think abo [...]

    5. When a philosopher decides to write a thriller, the result is this fast paced , action packed book with deep insights into the human condition.Richard Botelho has taken pages out of today's headlines and combined them with science fiction and philosophy. The result is at once uplifting and absorbing. This is an elegant story teller who is also brilliant at playing with words.I highly recommend this book.

    6. Let me start this review by saying that books like this keep me coming back to Science Fiction. Mr. Botelho has a unique way with wordsthat captures you and keeps you reading no matter what. I read most of the book in one day. I am a stay at home mom so I can do that on occasion and this one was well worth it! I saved the last 3 chapters for the next day because I didn't want it to end.The main character in this story is David Jordan. David looks and acts like a human, but he is not. He is a ver [...]

    7. 4.5 starsIf you like Science Fiction, this book is for you. If you like romance, this book is for you. If you like political suspense, this book is for you. If you like action, this book is for you…I think you’re getting the idea now! This book is worthy of discussion on any academic level. I found Reason for Existence extremely deep. Botelho has a talent for provoking thought.When I finished the book, I actually had to stop and think. Seriously, just sit and think; I’ve never had this hap [...]

    8. I received this book as a exchange giveaway gift. At first I wasn't sure what to expect, it all seemed a little too sci-fi for me, with extraterrestrial beings and nuclear and biological wars threatening to destroy the planet but I have to say that I read it all on my one week beach vacation and I couldn't put it down. It is an original (at least for me that I'm not used to read on this genre) theme, creative, and it makes you think. I definitely recommend it to everyone who is interested in re [...]

    9. This was a satisfying read and a real page-turner. I especially enjoyed the elements of philosophical thinking. This made Reason for Existence not just an entertaining science fiction novel but also educational.Highly recommended.(I received the book for free through Giveaways in exchange for an honest review.)

    10. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There is so much going on here: aliens, nuclear war/impending doom, world affairs, politics and love. I found it difficult to put down and actually learned some things along the way. The author obviously did his research. It is an intense, intellectual, action-packed read that left me very satisfied in the end. I would LOVE to see this on the big screen.

    11. This frighteningly plausible premise will leave you questioning our world. Deeply provocative and richly detailed, Richard Botelho paints a remarkable picture of incomparable depth. The powerfully driven narrative takes the reader on a chilling and fascinating journey. Beautifully written, this book will pique your curiosity and leave your spine tingling. A brilliant work ofction?

    12. "Reason for Existence is a unique blend of sci-fi and conspiracy theories. It is full of anticipation and excitement. Nothing has more potential for enhancing ones mind of possibilities that may prevail. An endlessly fascinating flavor of what if the unimaginable became imaginable."

    13. Intrigue, suspense, and fast paced. A great read. I received the book for free through Giveaways in exchange for an honest review.

    14. An ambitious novel that falls short when it comes to delivering a connection to the characters. Although a case can be made for the protagonist, the concept of empathizing and even considering the secondary characters relevant is not possible. For example, Jenny is never developed to the point where we as readers get to care about her and understand her impact on the main character —it is more about lust than love.Similarly, the dialogue becomes awkward as it drags on in an non-organic manner. [...]

    15. I am not sure why the title was chosen. The story is basically that humanity has a crisis. The various countries in the world seem to be going towards war, and within humanity there are a number off various alien races embedded, two of which have decided that they will catalyse humanity's destruction. There is another race that wants to stop this, and they too have embedded agents, one of which is the main protagonist, David Jordan. As the world heads increasingly towards destruction, the story [...]

    16. I received a free copy of this book from GoodReads.Richard Botelho is a smooth and accomplished writer. Reason for Existence flows well and under normal circumstances I'd give it 4 or 5 stars. You might well enjoy it and I endorse it unless you object to the misuse of science or empty plotlines.Botelho has a definite and strong point of view as can be read in his blog. He promotes a new-agey universal consciousness viewpoint and uses pseudoscience to justify his point of view. There are dozens o [...]

    17. “Okay, it goes something like this: societal elites attempt to boost their nation’s standard of living to maintain their own personal power, but only to the extent that their power is maintained, nothing more.” Ch 10; Pg. 94Reason for Existence by Richard BotheloThis is a story of a not-too-distant future, the year 2017 during which a near WWIII is about to occur. In addition to super powers already known, there are extraterrestrial influences and the main protagonist has been specially pl [...]

    18. 9/2/17, Beijing, China. San Francisco, CA. (Associated Press). U.N. Secretary General Nicholas Straka (Williams College, Greece) has called upon David Jordan (Williams College, extraterrestrial human form) help resolve a worldly nuclear holocaust crisis.There is also a plot to annihilate the human race. Will David be able to solve both world problems? I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am u [...]

    19. Reason for Existence is outstanding! It covers a couple of genres, mainly Science fiction, politics, and romance. David Jordan is planted on the earth ready to initiate and influence humans towards a peaceful life, even if they are targeted by his alien nemesis, Eric Waller and the Illicks. David was able to help the humans before they attempt destroy themselves with nuclear or biological bombs. The humans were unaware that the aliens were able to neutralize the bombs to preserve life, but it wo [...]

    20. I really enjoyed this book, and it went right along with another book I am reading. The message about spirituality was very good. Thinking about how mankind would save itself if it came to a nuclear or biological war was very scary. You know that could really happen. I would have liked more background on the characters. I felt like there was a book written about the people before this one. I wanted to know more about David and how he came to be on Earth. Who or what was the Council? What was the [...]

    21. I received a copy of the book through First Reads.I can't really pinpoint what was missing but I wasn't sucked in the world of the book. It took a long time to finish it. I guess it's just not for me. I did find it interesting in "I wanna know how it ends" kind of way but not in "I can't wait to get home and continue reading" kind of way. Since I think it deserves more than 3 stars, but slightly less than 4 I'd give it a 3,7 stars.

    22. Enter extraterrestrial David Jordan. Main character in this thought provoking book. David is sent to earth to befriend Nicholas Straka. They find themselves embroiled with an evil race that is determined to eradicate humanity. The fight is on with others drawn in to this battle. Has a little romance between David and a human young woman. Held my interest and went rather fast. Thank you to Richard Botelho and .

    23. Love is the reason for existenceCouldn't give this book a full 5 star rating; it reads like a newspaper. I almost gave up reading but at chapter 7 it began to come together. I would not recommend this to just anyone as it is tedious reading. However the conclusion was the punch line to the tit!e

    24. The world is on the brink of World War III. The Secretary General of the United Nations calls on a businessman to resolve an escalating nuclear crisis. Only the businessman isn't human. He is an alien living on Earth to observe humans.Very different type of book. Not an action novel. More philosophical and has events a little too close to current day.

    25. 5 STARS I really enjoyed this book. I, too,have always felt there must be other being outside of our planet. To think of super beings watching us and intervening when necessary to preserve the planet.I agree that the ability to LOVE unconditionally is the one great gift of humans.

    26. A very interesting read. I don't usually read science fiction, but I did enjoy this story. Will read more of his in the future.
