Paranormal, intense, and deep, Of All Things, Great and Small by Jordan G. Farrell is a novel that follows a psychological phenomenon in the life of aspiring writer Justin. It begins with the flu that quickly takes a different toll on him, plunging him into a state of delirium. Now, he has strange dreams which he documents in his journals, dreams that estrange him from his immediate reality. As this psychosis grows stronger, he begins to see reality through the eyes of different creatures. Are his dreams just dreams or are they a representation of the other lives he’s lived? This is a novel with strong spiritual and philosophical implications.
Like Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, this is a novel that features great symbolism and a man’s metaphysical journey to the truth about life and himself. The novel is written after a poem featured in the prologue and contains a lot of symbolism as well. Of All Things, Great and Small is the story of a moment when one ceases to be the object and becomes the subject, when one is no longer involved in conflict, but becomes its raison d’être, when time loses its significance and yields to a cosmic eye that observes. The writing is evocative and beautiful in the sounds it produces, the images it evokes, and the feeling it inspires. Jordan G. Farrell’s descriptions are powerful, somewhat poignant, and it is hard to read them without becoming emotionally connected to what is being described. The pacing is not rushed and, although there is not much action in the story, it is psychologically and emotionally intense, a dizzying read that could leave a reader disoriented.
