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?

    Story
    "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!

    "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

    "Mythic history"
    What made the experience of listening to Noah Primeval the most enjoyable?

    Great story that rings true to the human heart but also stays true to biblical speculation


    What other book might you compare Noah Primeval to and why?

    The Didymus Contingency by Jeremy Robinson was another fun jaunt into biblical fiction


    Have you listened to any of Brian Godawa’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first, overall I rated him 4 out of 5 because at times I thought he didn't capture how I wanted the characters to sound, but he is the author, so maybe there was a reason for it that I will find upon repeated listenings


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    True Mythology Made Real

    Would you listen to Noah Primeval again? Why?

    No, I don't listen or read stories more than once.

    Story
    "It's mythology not bible"
    What disappointed you about Noah Primeval?

    the interpretation of "creatures" that Noah has to battle. I no enjoyment in the fantasy world the author creates


    What was most disappointing about Brian Godawa’s story?

    Part man, part animal warriors. The reverence towards God is no where to be found.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was difficult to listen to very little development of character voicing and personality


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment. Not sure how the author is able to title the book Noah. I felt like I was listening to a detailed account of the game of dungeons and dragons


    Any additional comments?

    Do not purchase if you are expecting a fiction story that has a basis on the story of Noah

    Story
    "Good Beginning, Lazy Writing Towards the End"

    The author tried his best to narrate it well and I have to applaud his efforts. He tried really hard and I enjoyed most of the narration.
    The writing was at times immature. His research is obviously very thorough, and his writing shines when he's waxing poetic about ancient Mesopotamian irrigation techniques, or something similar. His imagination is just amazing- I would never have thought to write about some of his material. Nothing he wrote about concerning the antideluvian civilizations was too far-fetched for me to believe.
    However... At times his writing was just sloppy, especially with the dialogue between Noah, Uriel, and some of the other men. And in the last third of the book, it felt like he Kurt wanted to be finished writing- he would bring up a seemingly deadly or impossible situation, and the n another equally dubious solution would present itself. And Inanna having that weird affection for Lungal-anu the Priest King at the very end-calling him her "little pet" and cradling his dying body with "tenderness"? There was no prior history of such behavior, and I didn't buy that for a second. I think the author just threw that in there to serve as a convenient temporary plot point. Also, I feel that he didn't give enough gravitas to Uriel. The man is an archangel sent by God, but he came off as a grumpy joykill.

    I am a homeschooling mom of 3 teenagers. I love to read and I love to crochet. With audible I've found a way to do both at the same time.

    "I thought these were Christian books"

    I was extremely disappointed in these books. The first one was ok, but made me wonder. They just kept getting worse and worse. If these are supposed to be Christian then why does the author go into such gory detail about the sexual exploits of the Nephilim?? Each book got worse with the details. I will never read another book from this author.
