Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading!
"Just past eight o'clock on the last morning of November, the mountain began to shake."
"For so long he had believed himself next to fearless, but this fear bit as deeply into him as the mountain chill."
I'm only about 50 pages into this so far but I'm already so hooked! The characters are already real to me and I am so intrigued by the mountain and the ark. At the moment I'm not sure how much will be supernatural and how much is explainable without the supernatural but it's super intense and engaging and just one of those books you can easily picture in your mind! This would make an incredible movie.
