The story hooked me right from the beginning, but the pacing was slow to me and at times felt drawn out. I liked most of the characters, especially Jonah, Stormi and Arthur. The reader will instantly develop feelings for Jonah as he suffers from scoliosis and epileptic seizures. He is madly in love with Stormi who literally dropped from the sky early on in her life. She has this knack for knowing when something bad is coming and that scares the residents of the small Oklahoma town. And then we have Arthur. Bless his heart. He is super smart, but too honest for his own good. When Stormi saves a bus load of teenagers from certain death is when secrets start to unravel and the truth is known and with this, the plot thickens and makes Unfolding an interesting and unique read.
Unfolding by Jonathan Friesen is one of those books that spans different genres - the reader gets a little bit of mystery, some paranormal aspects with a small amount of religious undertones mixed in. This book is marketed toward the younger crowd and I would have to say that this is the perfect fit for this book. The writing is simplistic in nature and the pacing was just right for younger adult readers. This is a clean read with just enough intrigue that kept my interest throughout even though the plot was slower than I would have liked. Mr. Friesen is a great storyteller and his talent shines in this well-written book. I would definitely recommend this book to young adults who love good, clean fiction.
The whole synopsis for this book sounded amazing, and I was so eager to dive into it. It seemed like the perfect blend of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, and romance - all rolled into one, and I knew it was going to be something that I couldn't put down. I wasn't disappointed on that front, either - it was definitely something that I loved and it was such an engrossing read that I finished it in the course of two days.
I'm not going to discuss the plot really, because there are a lot of twists and things for the reader to discover, and I would really hate to give too much away. Instead, I'll just talk about what I enjoyed about the book, starting with the awesome characters.
Jonah has had to deal with a lot in his life, including a condition that causes him to have epileptic seizures. Of course, he feels like he will never get the girl he wants, because she is too perfect for him, and he feels like he isn't good enough for her. Jonah has a nice personality, and his character offers so much in terms of growth throughout the book.
The girl he is in love with, Stormi, might not notice Jonah much until she needs help with something, but when she does, the two of them come together and create a budding and sweet romance that really made the book. Stormi herself is an interesting character, and I found myself really enjoying the parts of the book that are about her and what she is dealing with.
Overall I thought this book was pretty fun. From the synopsis it might sound a bit confusing (and every now and again it is, but it's also easy to follow up on and figure things out, so it's not a big deal). It's really a great book for those days when you're tired of reading typical romances and want something a little different!
Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via the BookLook Bloggers program in exchange for an honest review.
