Boating for beginners
Apparently, the book of Genesis might be a work of science fiction. Reading this novel is a bit like having a dream where you think you are awake.
What if the stories in the Bible weren't riddled with magic, but with science fiction? What if Noah was a pillar of society because of his business empire and everything you have read about him in the book of Genesis was a publicity stunt?
Learns by accident
Gloria is a young-ish person, who lives in a house with no walls and uses a rope to get to her room, because of her mother's taste in interior design. She wants to read a romance novel but chooses a non-fiction book by mistake and she ends up learning things about the world.
God is a mistake
Gloria finds new friends through her new job, gathering animals for Noah, and they are all excited about her awakening. Later on they uncover a conspiracy of world-threatening magnitude. It seems like the one they all call God, who speaks to Noah and issue decrees to the people, is a creature that came to life by accident in Noah's lab.
While reading this novel I felt like I was in a daze, like I was dreaming but thought I was awake. There are so many strange things happening back to back and most of it is at the same time quite mundane. I would love to read any literary academic's reflections on Boating for beginners.
