Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders is a great book!

Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders is a great book. Francesco Arnone’s ability to express some profound truths about the full potential of our minds while writing about a young boy’s journey is superb. If you are looking for a book of adventures, but you don't want merely fiction, this book is for you. I found myself looking for a highlighter to mark lines that opened my mind about the Creation and its purpose.

Absolutely AMAZING! A MUST READ
A friend of mine raved about Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders. Although not my genre, I am happy I gave it a chance. A captivating adventure to the borders of reality, a continuous twist that allows a glimpse at the true powers of the human mind. I recommend this book to everyone, “absolutely fantastic”. I am happy there is a second book under work, too curious to know how the story will develop.

Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders, by Francesco Arnone, was suggested to me by a friend. I have to say that it pulled me in immediately, a hard to put down book even for someone that, like me, doesn't read much. It is well written, to the point that sometimes I felt like being inside the story. After I finished reading, I researched the author and found out that this is book one of a series. I can't wait to find out what happens next….

Well written!
Splendid character development so that you feel you know them.
Beautiful use of the English language - rich vocabulary, vivid descriptions, meaningful expressions, and "Words of Wisdom."
Battles of good and evil, hope and despair run through this novel providing food for thought.

A very interesting reading!

Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders was highly recommended to me by a friend. Although I’m not a fan of the genre, I gave it a try. By the first quarter of the book I was completely engaged. It presents some original and stimulating ideas about what we think and see as natural events. A very interesting reading!

A very interesting idea.

I really enjoyed the idea of the book. It is easy to believe that our minds have much more capability than we are usually able to utilize.
The addition of a religious theme is a worthwhile twist. Highly recommended.
