About the Author:

I went into this novel totally open minded, because it's David Arnold right?! I always know his writing will be good, but I never want to expect a certain thing from him because it will almost always be totally not what I expected at all. Just like his writing style, The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik was totally quirky and brilliant. I loved every second of this novel and kept finding myself restarting from the beginning of a page just to have another second with the brilliant characters. 

So I know Noah is the main character -- and I loved him, but can we take a minute to talk about the other incredible characters in this novel? Like Penny! Oh my gosh how I loved Penny. For an 8th grader, she had so much spunk and charm and I just couldn't get enough of her! I also really enjoyed Alan and all of the other crazy characters that Noah engages with throughout his journey. 

I could go on and on about this novel, but I really just want you to go ahead and read it! The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik is charming, enlightening, and down right funny! I am totally in love with this book and I want to just keep reading it over and over. Thank you to Viking and Penguin Teen for sending me a copy of this novel in exchange for and honest review. 

Rating 4/5
