I couldn’t get into this. After about a third of it I found myself wondering what it was about.

This story offers an intriguing premise: the protagonist, Noah, emerges from an attempted hypnosis to discover that details of the world around him have changed.

For example, Noah's friend Alan was an avid collector of DC superhero comics books, but post-hypnosis, Alan is a devotee of the Marvel universe. Noah's parents owned the complete DVD set of the sitcom "Friends;" now, apparently, they're obsessed with the TV show "Seinfeld."

Strangely, though, some things in Noah's life remain steadfastly constant; they're those people and things around which Noah forms his own "Strange Fascinations."

I found this to be a captivating story that kept me guessing throughout. For its use of mature language, I'd recommend this book for older teens and young adults.

Reviewer's Note: The publisher provided me with an advance reading copy.

This is definitely my favorite book by David Arnold this far. There was something about Noah that felt so relatable; he's on a path that other people have chosen for him that he doesn't really think that he wants to do anymore. The pressure of their expectations has made him unable to make a decision one way or another--something we've all definitely felt at one point in our lives.

Noah gets hypnotized and ends up in this alternate reality where he starts to pull away from his friends and family, isolating himself because he can't figure out to get back to normal. It was a refreshing young adult contemporary featuring some fantastic characters (besides Noah, Alan was my favorite), and one I would happily read again because I'm sure there's things I missed, like in any David Arnold novel.

With beautiful lines, quirky, lovable characters, and a fascinating (ha) premise, this is a book that I couldn't put down.

Noah's last name isn't Hypnotik (it's Oakman), but he does have strange fascinations. That's his own name for them, taken unashamedly from David Bowie's book. They are: a YouTube video featuring a woman aging day by day; the man with an enormous goiter Noah passes every day on his way to school; a picture dropped by a singer; and uncovering the hidden messages in his favorite author's works. When Noah is hypnotized (or something - he's not actually sure what happened), and he starts to notice subtle changes in the world around him, his strange fascinations remain constant. Convinced that the answers lie in uncovering the secrets behind his fascinations, he begins a somewhat obsessive quest to get to the bottom of things.

But then, well, let's just say that I did not see that coming. Or the other thing. It was quite the double-whammy, and very well done. But what really pulled me through the book was wondering whether Noah would ever figure out how to go back to being a good friend. His two best friends, twins Alan and Val, are fantastic supporting characters and add a lot of depth to Noah's story. ( )
