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.

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….

– Max Nava, entrepreneur


Amazing read. Great book overall! I am currently halfway through and loved every letter in it. It was a slow start, but got better and better… I have a warning though, once you pick it up you can’t put it down!

– Kyle, an angel


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!

Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders was highly recommended by a colleague. I am so glad I followed the lead and allowed the book to take me on a remarkable journey. I can’t wait for the second novel of the series to be released. Fantastic story telling!

Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders is no ordinary book. An epic tale of hope and salvation, and a fast-paced spiritual thriller, I highly recommend it to everyone intrigued by having a glimpse at the limitless resources of a liberated mind. Great read!

I had a friend recommend Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders by Francesco Arnone.
At first I was hesitant because it reminded me of the Hobbit and Harry Potter, but I started reading and couldn’t put it down…I finished in two days!!
The descriptions of the scenery, and each character’s personality, made me feel like I was there.
I could actually see the Miura Bulldogs in my mind; two muscled up beasts always ready for action.
The story line about the spiritual warfare between Good and evil made me wonder what we could have been if we didn’t commit the original sin, and what we could be if we let God’s gifts manifest in our lives.
I enjoyed the book and look forward to the next one in the series.

– Eric Ruffo, genitor

– Cheyenne Inman, student


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.

– Marian Heintz, educator


This is a Book that will open our eyes and mind. It makes you think outside of our everyday way of looking at life. I am only half way through and personally not a big reader but with the dialogue and the way it keeps you wanting to know what’s next it’s more like a movie, as its like you can envision what is happening. Highly recommended to everyone!!
Great read, and I look forward to seeing what comes next in this series.

– Eddie A., tools builder


A must read. Franco Arnone help us to think and meditate about what really matters in our life. Take your time to read and enjoy this book, take your time to improve yourself. To read this book is a present you do to yourself. Bravo Arnone! And Thank you!

– Michele Surian, ITALY


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.

– Justin Perkins 


This novel brought me back to my foundation, to the things I learned as a child, and then it projected me into a magical world of possibilities.  It makes you reflect on life, and brings you hope hat there is always a light at the end of any dark tunnel.  Superb read!
