Product description

About the Author

AUTHOR: My whole life, I've loved hearing and reading stories, and creating worlds of my own. As a child, I spent countless hours drawing crazy contraptions on paper, or building vast fortresses in a sand pile behind my garage. There was hardly a time I wasn't off on some adventure in my mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. So it's no big surprise I took all that daydreaming, all that longing to really see the wonder of creation around me, and started pouring it into discovering hidden universes in my own mind. For quite a few years I tried my hand at writing, mostly working on one, massive fantasy novel, but it wasn't until I had kids and they became voracious readers that I found my passion. There's no greater audience than a child. I'd rather have a simple review from a kid that says, "Awesome book!" than a five-star review in the New York Times. Of course, if anyone at the Times wants to try to prove me wrong, I'd be willing to let you.

EDITOR: Lane Diamond has over 120 published books to his editing credit, including many multiple award-winners, across many genres and styles.

Book Review: Noah Zarc : Mammoth Trouble
by D Robert Pease
Reviewed by J Bryden Lloyd

Writing Style – 4.5/5.0 (Excellent)
As a book aimed at children and young teens, I found this to be excellent.
There is good, readable structure and a very nice flow to this, making it ideal for young readers.
Chapters are very well organised and the dialogue works nicely for the characters.

Character Development – 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
This is a brilliantly diverse group, who fit perfectly within the storyline and build the sub-plots around them.
To this end, the development of each character was very cleverly built into the tale as it progressed.

For me, although I really liked the character, I found Adina to be a bit of an anomaly. The main issue for me was that she was from the most basic of timelines, effectively allowed herself to be kidnapped by ‘aliens’ and never seemed to struggle with any of the concepts, technology or surroundings.
She even had a reasonable technical vocabulary.
Okay, yes, this is a children’s story, but this character raised too many questions for me.

Descriptive – 4.5/5.0 (Excellent)
The vast majority of the descriptive work was outstanding. I loved the atmospheric and location work, which made this a powerful piece for a child to really immerse in.
The scene building was very good, though occasionally a little rushed as the pace of the action took over.

Excellent example.

Language & Grammar – 4.5/5.0 (Excellent)
Simple and effective. The word selection and usage is perfect for the target audience.
There seemed to be a few variations in the editing.

This is a really well told story, full of action and excitement. If you love time travel, you’ll enjoy the way Noah jumps forward and backwards, and debates issues like the immutability of time (not in those words!). The context, world-building and plot are beautifully put together, and I can see Middle-Graders or their teachers, getting together to discuss how a Stone Age person would view our world, or ask how would you explain the internet to them.

The first two-thirds of the story are somewhat akin to a StarWars-Star Trek mash-up. For a grown up, there are a lot of predictable parts of stories from other things. But then, what are stories but retellings of old themes? It didn’t stop Shakespeare, after all. The story ripped along, and I paused only to admire Mr Pease’s magnificent descriptions of spacecraft flight and fight.

This has the promise of being a first-class series, so you’d better get started on it now!

Great SciFi for youngish readers - although I am at the opposite end of the age scale.
It was amusingly and interestingly written, though requiring some leaps of faith on my part, which the young won't need to do.
But I can definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming Soon to Theaters... I hope! 19 July 2014
By Heart of a Philanthropist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Noah Zarc... At first I thought it was going to have some biblical intonations throughout the story. The only thing roughly biblical is Noah's name ,and that fact that the story takes place for the most part in a big arc. Instead of being in a world full of water, the arc travels back and forth in time to rescue animals from extinction. The goal of the arc is to put all the animals that ever existed on earth in an undisturbed by humans earth house. Earth will be an animal habitat- no humans live there anymore, they are all now on other planets.

Noah's mom is kidnapped by her husband's brother and taken to the future while Noah's dad is fighting robots bent on killing him in the ice age. Why? Because the brother wants earth to be re inhabited by humanity. Noah and his brother and sister must take the ship back and forth in time to rescue their parents. On one of their stops they pick up a stowaway. Did I mention that Noah is in a wheelchair? Fear and strength, fun and work, and the heroes of the story are kids- one who is differently abled.

Quite an intricate story in a short book. I loved it! This is my first time reading a time travel book. I've watched the entire Back to the Future series, but it has nothing on Noah Zarc! I'd love to see the series made into a movie.

I received a copy of Noah Zarc in exchange for an honest review. [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait to read the next book! 22 Feb. 2014
By This Kid Reviews Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Noah Zarc and his family are on a mission. They are collecting 2 of every animal via time machine so that they aren’t extinct in the year 3024 (Noah’s home time-zone). When Noah’s mom and dad get stuck in time because someone stole their time-traveling spaceship, Noah and his older siblings go to rescue them. But, it turns out that by the time they got there (they arrived a week after the signal) that their mom was kidnapped (by the guy who stole their spaceship). And that’s not all – the evil guy plans to destroy their goal by wrecking the place they have set up for the animals via poisonous gas, so it would take years to remove it. What can Noah and his family do?

Mammoth Trouble is the first book in the Noah Zarc trilogy (Book 2 is Cataclysm and Book 3 is Declaration). This is a fabulous dystopian world! Mr. Pease makes it sound so real and believable. I wouldn’t be surprised if this actually happened in the future (hmm.. maybe Mr. Pease is the time traveler?). I like Noah’s name, it made me smile. Noah is a really cool boy. The fact that he is disabled (Noah is in a high-tech wheelchair) added to the story. It is great to see a very cool MC with a disability. The story is very fun and totally gets the reader involved. I think it would make a great read-aloud for parents to read to younger kids for story time. Older kids and grown-ups will enjoy Mr. Pease’s writing style. The book has no profanity and only mild violence. The sibling rivalry described between Noah and his brother and sister is very believable and pretty funny. I think Noah Zarc is a great series that kids would love. I am definitely finishing this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a ride! 30 Aug. 2014
By Melinda Matthews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book and not just for middle grade readers. I should’ve paid more attention to the person who commented that he stayed up all night reading it. “Hello” and ditto! I guess I should have saved it for a long weekend! Be forewarned... I didn’t want to put it down and didn’t until I finished.

Highly recommend Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble (book one) to young, old and everyone in between. Great action, characters and storytelling, Mr. Pease. I would like to see this on the big screen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel-good Time Traveling Read 18 Oct. 2013
By Heather C. Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'll start off by saying that I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did! It's a middle-grade book that even adults will enjoy. The story is about a family from the future, time traveling to the past in order to save all of Earth's animals from extinction and to, once again, make Earth habitable for everyone. You can guess that this doesn't happen seamlessly and you would be right. Complete with heroes and a villain, the twists and turns just keep coming. Pease did an excellent job with descriptions of characters and their personalities. This is only the 1st book in the Noah Zarc series and I'm looking forward to reading the next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Middlegrade time travel! 19 Dec. 2013
By GSMarlene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Boy, what isn't good to say about a book that spans millennium! Throw in a little Star Trek save the whales and I'm all over it.

Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble has an atypical main character in that he needs a wheelchair (or several futuristic chairs and suits) to get around. But that doesn't stop him from being a typical kid that acts first, gets in trouble, and then has a blast getting him and his family out of trouble.

Great start to this series. I'm looking forward to reading more.
