Extracts From Noah's Diary by Martin Bodek is a different take on the story of the Flood and Noah's famed involvement. And it also tells a fair bit about what happened after the Flood. The difference to other Noah stories is that this one is told in the form of a diary written by Noah himself. The general plot should be known to the majority of readers, so I'll keep that short: God threatens that there will be a worldwide flood and tells Noah to build a huge ark and save two of each species of animal, and also take his own wife and his sons with him. All that, so he could repopulate the planet with animals and humans after the Flood.
I am not much of a Bible or religion fan, but I picked up Extracts From Noah's Diary by Martin Bodek because it sounded different and funny. Funny it was, different it was, too. I enjoyed the first half or two thirds of the book very much. There are some hilarious references to fantastic animals and why they are not on the planet. Creatures from Dungeons & Dragons and Tolkien's world are mentioned. And the way they became extinct kind of makes sense (as much sense as the extinction of creatures that never existed can make). The whole story arc about the ark is very witty and nice to read. It is a wonderful story!
