A new look at a very old story. I particularly enjoyed the internal monologues of the characters. I also thought the way the author developed the relationship between each couple as their ordeal continued was very well done. The way the sons and daughter-in-laws tiptoed round Noe was very human and the sheer misery and weariness for the inhabitants of the ark was well conveyed. The feeling that even Noe might despair hangs in the air. Don't be put off by the Biblical background. It's really very funny.
