Thomas writes, “Giovanni’s Angel is the story of a man who may just be the answer to a spiritual war swiftly heading his way- but for now, he just wants to be a man,” and it is here in this sentiment that she grounds her well developed characters in the very real and human struggle between desire and destiny.
Thomas’s tale centers around the connection between Mira and Giovanni as it grows, but Giovanni has a secret he is struggling with and the journey on which they embark will not only test them, it will challenge their perceptions and thrust them into a world caught at a nexus between Earth, Heaven, and Hell.
At its heart, Giovanni’s Angel is about choices. It is about human connection and about struggling not only to do the right thing but recognizing what the right tings really is. Mira’s story demonstrates the fundamental desire to connect and to help one another. Giovanni’s tale is one of revelation. Secrets, fears, and self-examination are all lenses Thomas uses to delve into the heart of her characters and deliver truth through her artfully crafted story.
Toi Thomas’s Giovanni’s Angel is an entertaining, intriguing, and enlightening journey through a fictional world where timely story beats and familiar archetypes provide a framework for readers to navigate a story that unfolds at a steady pace that holds readers’ attention and might just challenge their perceptions.
This story almost reads like it was written many years ago. The language, the way it is written, and the storyline, could very easily be from times gone by.
I was drawn into the story immediately. We have two people meeting online, deciding to see each other face to face. This is something which happens all the time. But in this case one of those people is a doctor, the other is a man with unusual problems he needs help diagnosing.
The way the story progresses drew me in very quickly. Mira's struggle to decipher Giovanni's symptoms and past is an interesting one. And I loved the fact that we didn't find out more till a lot later in the story. It kept the mystery alive throughout.
The friendship between Giovanni and Abraham is lovely. The way these 2 men have supported each other over the years is so nice. It is what a true friendship should be. Mira fits in well with both men, she doesn't get in the way of the friendship. Instead it is enhanced by her presence.
I loved getting to the end and getting a little hint as to who the narrator is, plus the fact there is another book planned. If the next book is anything like this one I cannot wait to read it.
There certainly was an interesting story to this, and it left itself open to some more adventures in the future (promising to be even more epic). My only real complaint, and the reason this was given four stars instead of five, is that the style was more "tell" than "show," which made it very difficult for me to really fully connect with the characters. It felt more like a matter-of-fact retelling of events than I suppose I'm used to, and that was hard to get over at first.
Still, as I said, it had an interesting story, tangled up in a fascinating history. My favorite parts were Giovanni's nightmares, which is probably why they ended up sort of bleeding into my own dreams.
Even though this isn't a genre I typically read, it was pretty solid, and I'm sure it would be much loved by Christian and romance readers alike.
Once I picked it back up and continued to read it I found myself getting sucked into the world and wanting to discover just what Giovanni is and more about his past and the relationship between him and Abraham. Also, I wanted to see how Mira and Giovanni’s relationship would pan out.
Little less than half way though the book I was sucked in and couldn’t put it down. There wasn’t any real action scenes ( which I love some great kick butt action) but there was a great story about finding ones self and accepting others for who they are without compromising yourself ( In my opinion) . Mia was a strong female character though skeptical at first did finally believe the unbelievable as a doctor she did everything to find scientifically plausible answers for what Giovanni was. She wasn’t a pushover (which I greatly appreciated) and I found her to be an easily likable character. Giovanni was a troubled soul with so many questions about who he was but he always did his best to protect others. His and Abrahams history together was a sweet one.
For me it was slow to start but with peeking my curiosity towards the middle it kept me turning the pages even though there were points that seemed drawn out. The ending felt a little rushed though. This is a first book in the series and I enjoyed the mystery, mythology and story enough that I will pick up the next in the series especially to see if Giovanni finds more like him.
