Douglas Thayer, Will Wonders Never Cease, was a non-the less a Mormon fiction novel. I enjoyed reading the book, it was a really easy and fun. The story line of a boy, Kyle, suffering from consequences due to bad decisions was clearly a message created for the youth who are struggling with the faith. I think Thayer did a great job portraying this situation that we see in many lives in the youth if the LDS faith. I loved seeing the character development in the main character because this was the first time I have ever read a fictional story of a person gaining a testimony. It was interesting to read with that perspective.I liked being inside a fictional character's mind, certainly when it is a young adult. I think he did a great job capturing this experience in this novel
This novel was in the same genre as, Dispirited, young adult fiction. With a lot of the readings we have read this semester I have learned having an open mind has most helped me to understand these authors and their purpose in writing. Writing these not religious, but also religious but also everything else can be confusing. Being an English major it is normal to go into a book expecting something and getting exactly that. But with all of these ambiguous works, we tend to dislike them rather than trying a different perspective once we read these undefinable works.
