From the moment I saw the trailer for Noah, I was immediately interested in seeing the movie. I know movie trailers can be misleading, but this one appeared to be right on track. “How else could they change such a simple, straightforward story?” I mused. I thought that even with the occasional artistic license, Noah could offer enough interest for a believer like me.
This is a good book. It opens with an unforgettable story of author Ron Osborn’s childhood witness to three, young female lions feasting on their recent kill of a Cape buffalo. He describes the lions’ chests and muzzles that were soaked in blood and recalls the stench of death in the air. The lions had not yet taken the trouble to drag the buffalo’s carcass out of the vehicle track the family car was following.
