Numerous Authors Ride Together
Our discussion of Noah’s Ride had lots of participation. We discussed how the book was created, with the numerous authors, and we mentioned other collaborative books. Although there was some difference noticeable among the various chapters written by different authors, most of us seemed not to find the stylistic differences to be a major factor in reading the book. We did find some faults with the book, mostly involving the characters, who were not only literally black or white, but were figuratively black or white, ie, totally good or evil. Most of us found the story compelling though and enjoyed the book for its level of excitement and plot.
