The Ark of Humanity is an absolutely stunning novel exploring the idea of how people managed to survive the Great Flood by mutating and living underwater. The plot line Scott J. Toney has created is very engaging, making the book unputdownable.

From the very first chapter I got immersed into the underwater world, fascinated by the imagery the author has created, eager to read more and find out what will happen at the end. The characters are believable and easy to relate to, and what’s really impo

The Ark of Humanity is the first time I've read a book based beneath the ocean. I was fascinated by the blurb, and on this basis decided to read the book.

The author manages to capture a world beyond our knowing, and he makes it easy for us to translate his words into solid images. He writes with conviction and creates realistic, unique and often unsettling characters.

I connected with the main character Maanta; he possessed and innocence and curiosity that was underpinned by a sense of rejectio

I read Scott Toney's "The Ark of Humanity" when he originally showcased it on the HarperCollins website. I found the writing smooth, imaginative and thought-provoking. I can recommend his book as an excellent weekend reader!:-)

What a tough read. I had to force myself to finish this book. The story moves at a snail's pace, and I just really could not get into it. When I first read the description of the book, I was really excited to try it out. Unfortunately, all of that potential went untapped. The characters were overly simplistic, the writing style was essentially unreadable with overly elaborate sentences adding a huge amount of fluff to what was a very basic book. There was also a lot of preaching about God, which ...more

I liked this book. It is an interesting spin off from the Noah's ark story.

Very interesting. Cool alternate reality/history.

This was a different read ... it was actually really hard for me to get through, I kept just trying to push myself to finish it. It's not that it is bad, it's just complex, not "easy" or quick reading. The language is quite poetic, and the world ...

In so much fantasy/sci-fi, much talk is given to "world building". Now, I'm just a lover of books, all this reviewing and critiquing is still rather new to me. I just have to say, in any "new" world, I don't know that I've ever encountered anything SO

ok - I must admit upfront I did not finish this book. I pushed myself to the halfway point and then ... there are SO many other books out there, I decided not to force myself to finish. I did jump to the end and read a bit more, and I didn't really feel like I'd missed much, but it helped with my sense of closure *Ü*

This was a very violent book! Perhaps some of that was just part of it being underwater ... the descriptions of the blood and torn flesh floating all around was just a little more vi

Fantasy as it should be, breaking new ground and bringing us into a world we have not trekked before.

Scott J. Toney writes a delightful story that asks the question -- what happened to the people who did not make it onto the Ark of Noah? They evolved into merfolk.

The exploration of this undersea world involved new concepts of up and down, locomotion and even speak. Toney does a grand job bringing this world to full realization in a way that surprises and delights the reader.

This was a different kind of book and even after reading it, I am still uncertain if I liked it. The story itself was good. The author took the story of The Great Flood and added to it.

He raised the question of if there were survivors of The Great Flood, other than Noah, what happened to them. And the answer was great: They turned into merpeople. There was two types of merpeople. One race that has arms/legs like people and are gentle/kind. The other race has the typical merperson tail and are w

I'm extremely disappointed that the author feels the needs to preach God's word and include sex scenes and extreme cursing in the book. I'm almost finished and I already have lost respect for the book with the unnecessary use of wordings and situations.

It moved so sloooowly and it was so hard to get into. The plot line could have been great if not for all the extra stuff. About 25% of the already looong book could have been left out. Sometimes stories are lost due to overly fluffed words.
