Like the biblical story of the "Flood", Earth is about to be destroyed by a natural disaster. Cass and Rhys are two of the one thousand humans taken on board the "lifeboat", an alien version of the ark--with the object of repopulating the earth when it's safe to return. I was blown away by this book. I honestly had not expected it to be quite as plausible as it is. I'm a UFO sceptic and I was pulled in from the first page. The plot with its surprising twists and turns kept me hooked. I read it in one sitting-- I had to find outwhat happened. I was gobsmacked by the ending.
But it isn't just the ingenious plot that delighted me. Lifeboat has some stunning writing, beautiful prose and natural authentic dialogue. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a rich reading experience. Left me wondering.
