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 is part medical mystery, part romance with a rich paranormal storyline at the heart of it. The story also delves into many philosophical issues. What makes a man a man? How is evil defined? Can you love another person if you can't love yourself? I loved the characters in this story, particularly Mira. She's intelligent, compassionate, and independent. Despite her independence, she's as alone and isolated as Giovanni. She's never felt like she truly belonged anywhere, and she's never known a sense of family. As she becomes more and more attached to Giovanni and Abraham, you can see how her vulnerabilities affect her, especially when she feels like secrets are being kept from her.
Both Gio and Mira undergo serious transformation in this book as they learn from each other and from a tragic loss. This book was a very enjoyable read and I was sorry for it to end. Fortunately, the sequel is being released soon! I'd recommend this book to readers who are looking for a thought-provoking story with a unique twist.
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.
