Read the entire review above. She closes with:
I couldn’t put this book down. Although somewhat spiritual, “Margaret’s Ark” is a scary look at what might end the world someday. This is not God’s will, but he won’t stop it, either. Mankind is on their own, and nobody is truly safe. Believers and non-believers alike will perish in the coming apocalypse. Only those who board the arks have a chance at survival -- and is that really a good thing, considering what happens to the Earth?
Dan Keohane, a finalist for the 2009 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel, has taken a different approach to the usual religious apocalypse stories. God may not be the cause of the global disaster, but he still has a hand in the outcome. And you don’t have to believe in God to live, you just have to make sure you are on one of the boats. This is not the Rapture -- this is a natural disaster that will change the world forever.
