characters Not Wanted on the Voyage Timothy Findley ☆ 5 Read & Download characters ¸ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Timothy Findley Not Wanted on the Voyage is the story of the great flood and the first time the world end. When it comes time for Canadiana one cannot go wrong by turning to the work of Timothy Findley This piece takes readers into the well known story of Noah s Ark and offers up a narrative about what really might have taken place things the Book of Genesis left on the cutting room floor Dr Noah Noyes enjoys a uiet life with his wife three sons and their wives They reside in a rural community surrounded by green pastures and animals than one could imagine When a dove heralds a special visitor Noah gets in a tizzy as he prepares This is not just any visitor but Yaweh Himself Dust is removed and everything that can be made better has a fresh coat of whatever to make it shine When Yaweh arrives He has much to say but cannot hide a significant degree of depression and displeasure with mankind While the Earth was made to be beautiful all its inhabitants have turned away from Yaweh Noah is tasked with building an ark and loading two and only two of each creature as well as his immediate family They will be the only survivors left after a massive flood Noah and the local workmen began to build this floating monstrosity while Mrs Noyes has second thoughts about this mission She hides herself away and at one point refuses to leave Noah s got six centuries of marriage under his belt but this is something new defying one s husband outrightly when Yaweh decreed it After much arm twisting and negotiating the Noyes family is ready to go While they travel the waters that continue to rise Noah realises the impact of the mission His sons will be reuired to repopulate the world alongside their animal cousins In a brash move Noah takes matters into his own hands and chooses a uniue pathway to ensuring the continuation of the human species What lies ahead on the open waters is for Yaweh to know and the Noyes family to discover Whatever it might be there are some who surely feel welcome than others A brilliantly told tale that forces the reader to re think just how much they know about Noah and the flood that ended while also restarting it all Recommended to those who love a little tongue in cheek writing as well as the reader with an interest in literary reinterpretationsI read this book when I was first in university and have also seen the stage play which left me a little prepared for what was to come in this buddy read That being said it has been too long for me to remember all but the most indelible portion of this book which is best left for the reader to stumble upon themselves Findley posits not only that Noah is a pious man but that he is the true patriarch of a family he s led for many years Each of the characters human and animal alike have their own personality and backstory as Findley meticulously crafts them and keeps the reader enthralled with their progress Working in tandem and also at odds these characters offer an interesting flavouring to a somewhat well known story from millennia ago while also raising eyebrows on some occasions Findley is able to breathe new life into this old story by honing in on the smallest details and creating a wonderful story surrounding it The pace of the book is uite easy to handle with four parts that parallel major portions of the story from Genesis There are breaks call them mini chapters that permit the reader a chance to stop should they desire though the momentum of the plot is not lost by steering to the side on occasion While the story does move forward in a somewhat linear fashion there are some significant deviations from the traditional story as well as flashback moments that serve to offer depth to this piece Findley adds those effectively though the reader will have to be attentive to see how things interlock I can truly say that I was impressed with most everything about this book though I will never look at a unicorn the same way againKudos Mr Findley for a great piece of fiction I cannot wait to read of your work soon This book fulfils Topic 5 Wild
