Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel’s Noah

noahcoversDirector Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, Black Swan, The Fountain) is known for making movie controversy and he does it again with his 2014 movie film Noah taken from the Bible.  Titan Books releases two novels based on the movie, the official novelization by Mark Morris and a YA (Young Adult) book titled Noah: Ila’s Story by Susan Korman based on the screenplay by Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel.

The world has turned more dark and sinister, and Noah has a vision from the Creator that a great flood will come to wipe out the world.  He must build an ark to save his family and all the animals.  In the mist of all this, warlord leader Tubal-cain who killed Noah’s father Lamech comes back years later to try to take over Noah’s Ark with his army of soldiers.  The official novel by Mark Morris follows Noah’s journey like the PG-13 movie.

The YA book Noah:  Ila’s Story by Susan Korman begins with raiders attacking Ila’s village.  Ila watches her world being torn apart from watching her family dying in front of her.  After the violent raid, Noah’s family stumbles upon the village and find that Ila is badly injured, but alive.  The family takes her in and she eventually falls in love with Noah’s son Shem.  Ila’s Story is her journey through her eyes.

This Noah’s Ark is not your grandfather’s King James Bible bedtime story.  This is a “Hollywood” interpretation.  The Mark Morris official novelization is around 290-plus pages, so if you want to read at a brisk pace then check out the YA title Noah:  Ila’s Story at 100 pages.
