The magic comes in subsequent chapters being told from different characters points of view: Noe; his wife; his sons Japheth, Cham, and Sem; and his daughter-in-laws Bera, Ilya, and Mirn. The Preservationist does not deal with matters of faith or historical fact. Instead the author simply, wisely, asks himself what it was like to be there, “when the rain began to fall.” He imagines the world before Abraham, before God became involved in international politics, or, for that matter, in organized religious practice. In details small and large, Maine convinces us that the world Noah worked so hard to save is indeed worth preserving.

    " Excellent retelling of the Bible story of Noah's Ark from the point of view of Noah's wife. "

    " I really didn't think I was going to like this book but it sucked me in. Kind of an interesting concept, to imagine what it would have been like to be Noah and have to figure out this whole ark business. "

    " So cleverly and simply written. I expected something more "heavy" and complex, I guess because of the bible connection. But I thoroughly enjoyed the smart way the story was told, and found it a memorable and easy read. "

    " I really enjoyed the story and the deeper look at the characters - but couldn't help compare this to Fallen. It does make me want to read more by David Maine. "
