Review From User :
Dilara Kenner, and and Tyler Locke first meet in a life and death situation, one of many that they share as they adventure around the world. Trying to uncover the truth behind Sebastian Ulric's plot to kill billions of people, the truth of where Dilara's father is and why he went missing, and the truth behind and the location of "Noah's Ark", Dilara and Tyler find themselves in numerous situations where death is merely a breath away. As time runs out and the situations become even more dangerous and billions of lives are threatened the question to be asked is whether Tyler's and Dilara's very close relationship will help or hinder the couple in their goal of saving the world and making the greatest discovery of archeology of all time.
The novel The Ark is one that I not only found captivating to read but also a literary work that made me question my beliefs, thoughts, and ideas if only for a moment. When Dilara Kenner finds very old information about Noah's Ark written by those who were the last to see the Ark, she exclaims: "They hid it deliberately. They lied about Noah's Ark to keep it from being discovered." And when Tyler Locke asked what "they" lied about pertaining to the Ark she replied: "Everything." In order to not "spoil" much of the book I will leave those quotes as they are without an explanation. Whoever wishes to have his or her own mind questioning certain facts that have always been just that, "facts", then I greatly suggest they read this novel. I personally had difficulty putting this book down when I was able to read it for more than just a couple minutes at a time. And as I mentioned before, those who enjoy science and scientific thinking should sit down and read the words found in this book. Also, if you are a reader who enjoys romance, action, adventure, history, and especially mystery, then I highly suggest you take a long gander at this novel because you will more than likely greatly enjoy this book. I for one declare this literary work a marvelous page-turner of a book that will leave you wanting to read more. If you do not like to be intrigued or do not enjoy any of the genres or ideas I have already discussed then this book may not be for you.
As previously stated I believe this book is quite a good read (with no pun intended). The plot, characters, ideas portrayed and used, details sprinkled throughout, and simply the simple tone that keeps the great amount of detail and information that make up this book easy to process all are strong points of Boyd Morrison's debut novel in my opinion. For example, Sebastian Ulric, the antagonist, has such an awful, demented plot it is easy to dislike him and want him dead; however, at the same time he truly believes what he is doing is right and is justified by God. When Ulric honestly thinks he is the hero and is helping cleanse the world and start over, much the same as when Christians believe the great flood during Noah's time cleansed the earth, it is hard to entirely dislike him as his intentions seem "heaven-sent". This simple explanation of one character shows the depth and dynamic quality that Morrison has developed into even just one character. If there is a single weakness of this book it would have to be that of not having the most captivating writing style. The plot and characters are what keep the reader reading while the more simple style of writing, just filled with lots of information, does not intrigue the reader. Overall, however, The Ark is one book I greatly enjoyed and one book I will most likely revisit sometime in the future. I congratulate Boyd Morrison with his debut literary work!
