London, 1927. Since losing his beloved in the Amazon a year ago, Indiana Jones has settled down with his Ph.D. and taught Celtic archaeology, thinking he has left adventure behind. Yet Indy is rather tempted when a wild-eyed Russian doctor, Vladimir Zobolotsky, tries to recruit him for an expedition to search for Noah’s Ark . . . and he finally takes up the dangerous quest after meeting Vladimir’s alluring daughter, Katrina.
They have set out for Istanbul and then Mount Ararat, the fabled location of Noah’s Ark, when trouble erupts. Kremlin agents, Sicilian “enforcers,” and Turkish bandits all attempt to bar Vladimir, Katrina, and Indiana Jones from the archaeological find of the century . . . and from a certain 950-year-old boatbuilder.

This is the Fourth novel in the Indy series, and, so far, it's the best one. The first two novels were cute little action stories, and the third novel (The Seven Veils) was just a bloated and confusing mess. However, this novel reads like a good epic adventure: It's got good pacing, good action, good characters (good and bad guys), and a good McGuffin in Noah's Ark. My only complaint is that the ending here is a little strange with Indy encountering a dream-like Noah figure, but, all in all, the novel keeps the reader on the edge of their seats with good action. When I read these Indy novels, I always ask myself -- does it seem like the novel could be placed in the category of the Indy Movies? And as far as this novel goes -- the answer is YES! This novel could (with a few tweaks) be turned into an Indy adventure movie, and possibly hold its own with the original 3 Raiders pictures. Would've liked to have seen Lucasfilm adapt this novel into the 4th Indy movie as opposed to...
it seems at times that Indiana Jones is going from quest to next but that is how he learning about life and people great read.
