I was really quite pleasantly surprised by this book. I expected it to fall along the lines of some of the other Apocalyptic Christian Literature (i.e. the Left Behind series) that I've read which have a tendency to feel very "preachy" (if that makes sense). In reality I found it to be the opposite. While the main character, Margaret, is a Christian, the non-Christians in this book who had the dreams were visited by entities who were sent by the god(s) of their chosen religion. I thought this was a nice touch. I also like how the book included the perspective of characters who had the dreams but chose not to act on them.
I also REALLY enjoyed Margaret, the main character. In many cases I find that female protagonists written by men tend to be weaker characters who need a man to "save" them, but I didn't find this to be the case with Margaret. She is strong, intelligent, and I really enjoyed her back-story.
The books started off slowly, but builds wonderfully. After the first few chapters I couldn't put it down. In fact, I literally stayed up all night reading.
This book is self-published, but it is one of the BEST self published books that I've read. There were only a few spelling/grammatical errors that really stood out in my mind. There were, however, two major spelling errors that really bothered me, and were the sole reason why this isn't a five star book for me. Near the end of the book two Hindu gods are mentioned, Hanuman and Rama, spelled by the author as Hunnman and Ramman (unless these are alternate spellings that I am not aware of). I can really only assume these are the gods that the author meant to reference because of the context in which they are mentioned (they are seen by a Hindu character in a scene that is similar to one that occurs in the Ramayana). Because this occurs near the very end of the book (within the last few pages) it was not enough to ruin the story for me, but I was bothered by it. I hope that some day the author edits these scenes.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Apocalyptic/ Post-Apocalyptic genre, books with strong female protagonist, or anyone looking for an quick exciting read. As I mentioned before, don't let the religious nature of the book scare you off. I didn't feel forced on to me, the reader at all.
Margaret is one of a limited number of people who've been visited by angels in their dreams. The dreamers have been commissioned to build their own arks before a great flood arrives in two months. The ark, which can only hold thirty people per God's specs, allows for the survival of some people, whether they believe or not.
Doubt, logistics, and politics all come into play, but Margaret's tenacity against these odds is the crux of the story. A nice mix of other major characters provides dramatic episodes before the final disaster. Most of the characters are Christian but not all. Most are believers but not all. Most are good but not all.
Keohane provides enough details about the the construction of the ark and weather conditions to keep the reader engaged but not overburdened. Due to the nature of the story, there's a fair amount of religious dialogue, which could be a plus or minus for some readers. But Keohane's real strength is bringing his characters--good, bad, and ugly--to life. Their dynamics keep the reader riveted.
Angelic visitations to certain people is what drives this story. The impending end of the world as we know it, God's wrath or something else? Why some are chosen and others not is not really addressed. There are no definitive answers here but this is a story you should read.
