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.
My big (massive actually) disappointment with this book was with the author's choice of language. The swear words weren't frequent, but they were scattered throughout and they were most definitely not necessary to the telling of the story. Obviously the author disagrees; he is very skillful and could have written those passages differently had he felt that the better choice. Choosing to insert those particular words takes this book way down in my estimation, loses it 1.5 stars on my scale, and means I will not be recommending the book to others. Harsh as this may sound, this review and number of stars given represents my personal experience with the book. For me, this greatly contributed to my perception that the spirit of the book went in a somewhat downward direction as it progressed.
While I found the journeys of the various characters the best part, seeing the lengths some would go to in order to keep their comfort zones intact, there was little to none of the joy I felt at the beginning of the book remaining once I reached the end. Such a pity - it could have been a truly great book. Personally, I would have liked to see the ending of the book come before it did, so that more was left to the imagination.
The author gives us a glimpse into the lives of each character as the story unfolds and the reader is drawn into it as well.
The book does not preach to the reader but the realism makes us pause and ask "what if"?
I look forward to reading more of this author's books.
I gave four stars only because I wished for maybe a bit more at the conclusion of the book.
Not my usual type of book, but an intriguing and interesting premise. Found its balance quickly. Plot, characters, uncertainty all moved along with just the right balance. Characters are developed enough that you care about them, feel for them. Even the good guys have faults, and the bad guys have virtues - just like real people. As the story developed, the drive and determination to build an ark on a sunny day despite ridicule, loss of job, upheaval of family, supply restrictions, etc, showed more of each character's character, and sometimes more depth of characters than was always comfortable. Topic handled brilliantly.
The story remained engaging and unpredictable to the end. While it was not a book that kept me up reading all night, it did keep me up late at the finish and had a strong enough finish that I am staying up even later to write this review.
Definitely a book to take a chance on! I enjoyed the story, and now have some ideas to think about on my own.
