I really enjoyed all of this book. it was a very novel approach to a time honored biblical story. We can often see how the Lord can use us to accomplish his will!!
I've tried twice to listen to this book but I can't seem to stay with it. There is nothing believable including the characters who are right out of a romance novel.
Possibly, in a distant future. I pretty much got the whole story with this listening experience.
There were some moments that dragged along a bit. However, it picked up as the story rolled along toward the middle.
Tyler Locke and his buddy, Grant. Great team and good humor.
The Ark isn't what you think!
I've got another of Boyd Morrison's books on Kindle (Rogue Wave) and loved it.. This is the first series book I've listened to. Although the plot was similar to some others I've listened to ("Judas Strain" by James Rollins and Cllive Cussler's, "Plague Ship") it had its own unique twist. I really loved the characters in the book and their "McGyver-like" solutions to some of the obstacles in their way. All in all a good listen. My only complaint is that it twisted and turned a bit too much and could have been shorter and still have been good. Pretty good story for an early effort, though.
I really enjoyed this book archaeologist Dilara Kenner finds Tyler Locke after the death of her friend. It’s a great adventure finding Noah’s Ark it has everything you want in a book; the bad guy is really bad. What a ride. Now onto the next Tyler Locke adventure. The narration was great.
I really enjoyed this book. It is not a sappy love story, which I much appreciate. It is just a really good story. It is sort of science fiction but it is also sort of a thriller because the scenario could happen someday in real life. I liked it a lot and have since read both the other books based on the character Tyler Locke which although quite different in storyline have some similar elements in that their stories could really happen/have happened. Great reads!
The fact that things in the story could happen/have happened in real life - it was fiction and a bit far-fetched, but still easily in the realm of the possible.
Well after getting into the story I realized that I actually had read the book, but I was better able to picture the scenes and action by his reading. I did like that he changed his voice a bit for the different characters. I think that helps follow the dialogue.
Yes. I usually listen only in the car but I also listened to this one at home several times.
The reader was a tad slow and I enjoyed it more when played at 1.25X

A top rate story line with an interesting twist on Noahs Ark. The story has some expected scenes and twists, though the overall plot is sound. It could have been a little shorter, but filled in the areas that could have dragged on with action. I have read a few Flood/ark stories lately, and this on was a different twist.
I have to preface this by saying I very rarely listen to or read fiction. So this was a change for me to begin with and I was hesitant for that reason. But I needed a break from my usual serious non-fiction topics. I guess I would describe this as "ear-candy". By that I mean it's an enjoyable listen but I didn't expect it to be very deep, and it wasn't. I'm a little surprised at some reviews that seem shocked and disappointed at how unrealistic aspects of this are; just read the description, are we really expecting realism in a "thriller novel" about a Bible story? I would think anyone wanting realism might try the non-fiction section. But again, I admit that I don't typically read fiction, so maybe there IS realistic fiction out there, although I'd be slightly surprised if it exists on this sort of topic.
I suppose my lack of disappointment is in part due to the lack of high expectations I had regarding the realism in the story. Having said that, it certainly is unrealistic! Much of it had me thinking "yeah right" or "as if" in my head, but the storytelling was good and the story was still fun, so I enjoyed it nonetheless. The narrator was very good, he had a lot of voices and accents to juggle and I didn't find anything in that regard lacking. I do feel the author got too far off-track from the "Ark" storyline, but it would have been a very short, pointless story otherwise. The main idea of the storyline I think was the "mystery" of the ark claim, and so the characters really had to do a bunch of running around to solve it, otherwise it wouldn't really be a story, would it? The "twist" wasn't much of a twist, I saw most of it coming save a few details, but not to the extent that it ruined the listen for me.
One thing I disliked was the inevitable romance factor; that just annoys me and it ultimately served no real purpose to the story.
One important note; I probably would be annoyed had I paid the full price amount for this book. I got it for MUCH less on sale so I felt it was worthwhile, especially given the length of it. Overall I think it was a fun listen as long as you aren't expecting a literary masterpiece. "Ear-Candy", I maintain.
Serving God For His Glory!
This book has a lot of action and adventures in exotic locations.

Tyler Locke, he is the main character and the hero.
This book was entertaining and good to pass the time, but not one that I would consider a great listen. It just didn't catch my undivided attention. The story board was good, but kind of fizzled at the end.
Yes. I found the book kept me wanting to find out what was going to happen next.
