What People are Saying



Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders is a book that will pull you in right away! It was a very fast read and this is coming from someone that takes a moment to get into a book. The characters are interesting and you care about what happens to them. This is a sure sign of a tale told well! It reminds me of The Neverending Story and Harry Potter yet in this novel there is a spiritual element that is intriguing. Thank you Francesco Arnone! I am eagerly awaiting the next novel to find out what other adventures await Jesse!

A must read! I really enjoyed entering into a wondrous world filled with aha moments. Couldn’t put the book down…..it just pulls you in yearning for more!

Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders wastes no time delivering an immersive experience that opens the reader to a world full of vibrant characters and compelling scenarios. I tend to be picky about recommending books to friends unless I really enjoy them…but this one makes the list. I am eagerly anticipating the next entry in the series.

This is a book I did not want to put down.  It made me think, and it opened my eyes to the world I would see if my mind had been liberated. Somehow I found comfort in it, and the hope that no matter how bad it gets, in the end, everything will make sense and everybody will be okay. I like the line”…life is a day at school, just another step towards graduation.” I look forward to continuing the journey, next to Jesse…

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.

– Laura Chinaglia, manager
