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.Read more ›
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.
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.
I could not figure out whether the author intended this book for devout fundamentalist Christians, who might not have a problem with the literal interpretation of Noah's Ark; or for more progressive Christians who might think of the story as allegory or for just general fiction readers. By the end I still hadn't figured out the audience for this book. There was some pretty rough language, which will offend some Christians. The angels who visited th Ark builders were quirky at best. There was unnecessary violence, not as bad as Stephen King. But, too much for many Christians. The author realized that In the Bible God agrees not to destroy the Earth by flood again and indicates it's different this time. God is not destroying all life on Earth, but instead saving those who choose to be saved from a natural disaster.Read more ›
