This is a fictional tale of Noah's Ark. David Maine takes this classic tale from the Bible and humanizes it by allowing the characters to give their perspective of the events as they unfold. From Noah's conversation with God, to explaining to his wife and children what was asked of him, to the building of such a ship and the seemingly impossible job of collecting an assortment of animals. Noah's wife, sons and daughter-in-laws give their account of what it is like to live with a man "touched by God", not to mention the wonderful experience of living in close quarters of an ark, feeding and caring for all of God's creatures... and the smells! It was a surprisingly fun "ear-listening" experience that was laced with humor.

This is an Unabridged edition that contains 6 CDs.

Arrived in Arizona (USA) on Friday, December 18th to spend Christmas. LOVE it here in the Sonoran Desert, so I'm planning to stay on and call this “home” for a time. Holiday Blessings to all, and best wishes for a Bright and Shiny New Year!

Reserved for my...RIP BigJohnLefty Memorium CD AudioBookring (US Only Please)
Here is the link...


My first ever AudioBookBox participation was in BigJohnsLefty's last one. I posted all of his titles in his journal for him, and in the thread, as well. I laughed so hard because I never dreamed the box he sent would be SO HUGE, and have SO MANY selections. I must have used an entire roll of tape to secure the battered box before sending it on it's way to the next person. I chose five titles, and have already released two of them. Three remain, and I'd like to keep them together, and offer them as a Bookring in his memory for those who are interested. I will be including a little journal for you to write a fond memory, if you hopes to be able to send it to his family once it returns to me.

This will be my first ever Bookring, and with just three little titles, it will be inexpensive for all to mail. The titles are listed below. If you are interested in participating, please sign up here, and PM me.

Seabiscuit-Laura Hildenbrand

The Art of Racing In The Rain-Garth Stein

The Preservationist-David Maine


Decided to keep these three titles a bit longer so I have a chance to listen to them before I offer them for RABCK in BigJohnLefty's Memory. ; )


8/31/16...Started listening to this for Katethegreyt's August Readathon 8/26- 9/1

From Amazon...

"Noe says, -I must build a boat.
-A boat, she says.
-A ship, more like. I'll need the boys to help, he adds as an afterthought.
-We're leagues from the sea, she says, or any river big enough to warrant a boat.
This conversation is making Noe impatient. -I've no need to explain myself to you.
-And when you're done, she says carefully, we'll be taking this ship to the sea somehow?
As usual, Noe's impatience fades quickly. -We'll not be going to the sea. The sea will be coming to us."

In this brilliant debut novel, Noah's family (or Noe as he's called here)-his wife, sons, and daughters-in-law-tell what it's like to live with a man touched by God, while struggling against events that cannot be controlled or explained. When Noe orders his sons to build an ark, he can't tell them where the wood will come from. When he sends his daughters-in-law out to gather animals, he can offer no directions, money, or protection. And once the rain starts, they all realize that the true test of their faith is just beginning. Because the family is trapped on the ark with thousands of animals-with no experience feeding or caring for them, and no idea of when the waters will recede. What emerges is a family caught in the midst of an extraordinary Biblical event, with all the tension, humanity-even humor-that implies.

8 out of 10

A creative imagining of the life of Noah, his family and the quest to build, populate and oversee the Ark. I found the details to be fun, but wouldn't recommend it to just everyone because there's quite a bit of crude sexual content.
