Publisher's Summary

Christopher Golden's Ararat is the heart-pounding tale of an adventure that goes wrong - on a biblical scale. When an earthquake reveals a secret cave hidden inside Mount Ararat in Turkey, a daring, newly engaged couple are determined to be the first ones inside...and what they discover will change everything.

The cave is actually a buried ancient ship that many quickly come to believe is Noah's Ark. When a team of scholars, archaeologists, and filmmakers make it inside the ark, they discover an elaborate coffin in its recesses. Inside the coffin, they find an ugly, misshapen cadaver - not the holy man they expected, but a hideous creature with horns. Shock and fear turn to horror when a massive blizzard blows in, trapping them thousands of meters up the side of a remote mountain. All they can do is pray for safety. But something wicked is listening to their prayers...and it wants to answer.

    "Decent story and narrator"

    It is a decent story although I would have wished for some more historical context or tie ins. The narrator was quite good EXCEPT that his voice acting of female characters was beyond atrocious.

    Story
    "Icy Creepiness!"

    The plot isn't particularly original ( A mash up of Ten Little Indians, The Exorcist and The Thing) but Mr. Golden does a great job of creating an atmosphere of dread and menace. I subtracted a star from the narration which overall was pretty good except for the female lead who sounded off to me. Like someone doing a bad Morticia Adams imitation.

    "Meh"

    There just didn't seem to be enough of a storyline to keep me interested. While there was some minor action and a couple of decent "creeps", I still found myself having to rewind and listen again because my mind had wandered.

    Story
    "It's a love/hate thing ... spoiler alert"

    Great story if you just want to be entertained. The story tells an alternate outcome to the biblical version of Noah and the Ark. Perhaps I missed the explanation, but I couldn't help asking, "ok, so how do you account for the repopulation of the Earth after the great flood?" But it's fiction, so I got over it already and enjoyed the ride. The one thing I couldn't get over was the character of Meryam. I found her totally unlikeable. In fact, I frequently mumbled, "What a bitch." I never felt sympathetic toward her and was sort of bummed that she made it off the mountain alive. I suppose her icky character helped make the story what it was. I can see the possibility of a sequel, perhaps developing the adventures of Walker and Kim. I'd buy it! The narration was superb.

    Story
    "Chilling then dragged on too long....."

    I really liked this book....I was more than halfway through when the book just started to drag and drag....went on way too long too gory - took the suspense and chill right out and couldn't wait for it to end.....disappointing.....

    "Excellent horror, Meh accents"

    Great story, overall well read, but the narrator's female British accent left a lot to be desired

    "Pretty good story"

    I liked the story and the characters, but overall I think it could’ve expanded more. There was not enough exposition and the story felt a little rushed. I’m happy to have heard it and think it is worth others hearing it. Just minor critiques.

    Story
    "Good premise marred by awful lead roles"

    The story is a good one but I hated the lead Adam and Merriam so much that it took a good book down. The female was especially poorly written. A real shrew and yet we are supposed to root for her? I would have liked more of the story of the ark itself instead of the silly romance
