Today I started reading The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik by David Arnold. This book is about a teenage boy whose world changes in weird ways over night. I bought the book because the cover has a lightening bolt similar to the lightening bolt on David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane album. In the description on the back cover Noah is described as being a “Bowie believer”. As a David Bowie fan I am very interested to see how he plays a role in this book. I really enjoy the idea of music being a major theme of a book, but from a fan perspective. I am only a few chapters into the book right now, but I am really enjoying it. From the very beginning it is clear that Noah is an interesting and unique character. I’ve never read anything by David Arnold before, but after this book I might look into his other books.
