Publisher's Summary

This is not your Sunday School's Noah's Ark. 
Noah Primeval is a speculative retelling of the beloved story of Noah for a new generation. In an ancient world submerged in darkness, fallen angels rule as gods, and breed giants and monsters. Mankind is enslaved to evil. Noah, a tribal leader, has been prophesied to bring an end to the rule of these "gods" and save humanity from coming destruction. But Noah's wife and son are captives of these dark forces. To rise against this supernatural evil and rescue his family, Noah will need an equally supernatural army. But why has God told him to build a huge box out of gopher wood?
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

almost perfect

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

first off its a good story and pretty well read. Also it opens your mind up to a whole new way of looking at the bible and history. would be great as a film.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Methuselah... really cool character. He needs his own book.

What about Brian Godawa’s performance did you like?

Really good except for some dialog moments with the archangels... they did not sound... otherworldly enough to me. I dont know if thats the writing was of or the reading. The end conflict however was epic! The reader/ author really gets into it and you feel like you are on this battlefield with him as this wave is coming..

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I just got a jolt at the final chapter. It was Just such a cool and epic 3rd act

The Antediluvian World - A Harmonisation

This is an excellent fictional re telling of the flood that weaves the biblical account seamlessly with many of the Ancient Near Eastern flood myths; the result is a reasonable (and vastly entertaining) explanation of the presence of and belief in many of the deities and seemingly divergent understandings found regarding the Deluge. I especially enjoyed listening to the appendices following the novel that explained much of the rationale of the author's choices for the depiction of Noah and the other characters. Thank-you, Mr. Godawa, for this series!

Great mix of ancient history, myth & the bible

This is a great book and listened to it none stop finishing in a day. Paint a touchable more real day to day picture of the land, it's people and a pantheon of heathen Demi gods. Must go start book two!

Cool idea, lacks depth.

Narration by the author adds a little zest to the story.

Story lacks character depth, probably assuming the reader already knows something of the characters, such as Noah's family.

Too often the author 'hurries' over 'moving' moments, important events and the description of scenery. It shows either a rushed attempt at story writing or a lack of imagination.

The concept is in my opinion a fantastic re-envisioning of the 'status quo's' understanding of the biblical narrative, in a very inventive way.

The possibilities were fantastic, the result, mediocre.

Would I recommend? Because of the appendices and theological merit behind the fiction, yes absolutely. If you're after great fiction, look elsewhere. Otherwise, continue. But let it be known this book will leave mixed emotions.
