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?

Great mix of ancient history, myth & the bible
This is a great book and listened to it none stop finishing in a day. Paint a touchable more real day to day picture of the land, it's people and a pantheon of heathen Demi gods. Must go start book two!

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

Does Noah really get on the ark?
I thought the book was very entertaining. I know the end of the story so the author had a very difficult job keeping me engaged and he did just that. There were even times when I thought he was going to change the Biblical narrative to fit his story. He did not, but I was almost sure the story would end differently than what is in the Bible. I kept wondering how the author would bring things together. I was surprised many times.
It is a work of fiction drawing from the Bible, non-canonized stories (stories outside of the Bible) and the author’s creativity. The book kept my attention and even caused me to power through it to see what would happen next.
At the beginning, the author tells a little background on why and how he developed the characters. I believe he said the appendices were not included in the audiobook but they were. I listened to the appendices twice for educational information. He includes a lot of information in them and twice for me is probably not enough. You probably need to read these.
I find it difficult today to find a good story without resorting to constant profanity and graphic sex scenes. In my mind, if an author needs to resort to such attention getters, he or she is not good enough to draw me in on the story itself. Brian Godawa is able to draw you in on the story and keep you wondering what will happen next. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
The author read his own book. He did a very good job. I am sure it took him a long time to put the audio together and I am grateful he did. I have heard other productions who have a much larger budget with professional readers but that’s all they do. Around chapter 4 I lost track of everything and was focused on the story and not the reader. I thank him for making this available in audio form. I read all the time for work and at times I need to sit back and just listen to a good story. The book is better than most of the entertainment you see on TV or at the movies today. My goal in listening was for entertainment and I was entertained and as a bonus, I received some education.
On a theological note, the author did interweave sound theology into the story. It is a story of Noah. Yes, he did have fantasy and fiction but when he dealt with Biblical issues, he was truthful.
