Entertaining May 11, 2017 Good, creative story that was engaging and very readable. I enjoy The End of the World novels, and would enjoy seeing more about the survivors.
Nicely written, good science, easy read May 2, 2017 From a tech stand point it well thought out work. Good interplay through with a few decent twists. Not pushy on agenda just a good read.
Great read April 14, 2017 This was a great read. Unlike many books in this genre this focused on preparation. Great plotline and characters. Read it now :)
Refreshingly original March 28, 2017 I only acquired this book because I saw that it was free in the Kindle store, and the description was somewhat interesting. I opened it up yesterday, and I was quickly hooked. I stayed up til midnight to finish the book. The author takes elements which have been used before and turns them into a refreshingly original and enjoyable story. It has a little bit of conspiracy, but not the 'geesh, can't they see he's a bad guy' kind that too many post apocalyptic stories have. Also, there were a lot of likeable characters.
Great book March 27, 2017 This is a really good book on post apocalypse society. Kept me captivated through the whole story line. Love it!
The Ark March 24, 2017 The Ark by Christopher Coates is a magnificent story !! I especially like apocalypse-themed novels, and this one was one of the best !! The characterization was very fine -- the people had real personalities, real relationships, and redeeming qualities. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys this type of fiction !!
EXCELLENT! March 24, 2017 Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase Wonderful book. Just a couple of pages in and I was hooked. Great storytelling, interesting characters, and plenty of excitement. The only thing I hated was for the story to end.
True Sci Fi November 16, 2017 Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase I really enjoyed this read. Science fiction should have a healthy dose of science and this book delivers. In light of an overwhelming, world-altering catastrophe the collective will to live finds a way. Looking forward to the next book by this author.
Good read May 9, 2016 Enjoyed the book a lot, good premise, and interesting story line. Really want to see a book 2 in the near future
Super good. May 8, 2016 I loved this book, it was hard to put down and read it in a couple of days. I highly recommend it.
Great read May 1, 2016 Quite believable and a great read. Not to slow, not too fast and no long winded descriptions that make you forget what was being described. Enough action mixed in with futuristic ideas that make sense. The plot changed direction well and kept me interested. Looking forward to more from the author.
Suspenseful, believable story line! Hard to put down! April 23, 2016 Great story line, hard to put down! Makes me wonder what Chris actually knows about what our government is planning or already has in the works. Can't wait for the next!
Great book April 22, 2016 I loved reading this book. I have read other apocalyptic books and this one was one of the best. I just hope that there will be a sequel.
A Good Read April 22, 2016 This was not your typical end of the world novel. Rather than being focused on one main character that saves all the survivors. You have multi characters that are well developed and work to save what they can of a world that is going to die. It also had well thought out tech. that was consistent throughout the story. Not my normal read but I enjoyed this book.
A New Ark to survival. WOW! April 18, 2016 New wonderful premise to an end of the world book. A different kind of ark, and a different way to die. A lot to do in a story and this really works. It is a real pleasure to find a new author that I know I will be reading a lot of! I liked the people and was truly attached to them and I was surprised often enough that I could not put it down. Great book!
Enjoyable Read April 17, 2016 This is an enjoyable read with some unexpected twists and turns. One thing I appreciated from this new author is the level of medical and technical details he included to make aspects of the story more believable. When you think about all of the materials people would need after a post-apocalyptic event it’s a pretty extensive list. The author clearly thought this through and, again, the specifics make the story more credible. EBooks from new authors are often hit or miss. This one was definitely a hit for me as it kept my interest and I wanted to see where the story was going to go. I'd recommend it for people who enjoy this type of story. I look forward to reading more from Chris.
