Ark - Book Reviews



ARK by John Clive & Nicolas Head. Published by Viking/Penguin


'Gripping.. ...though written as a novel, every incident is true.'
Peter Grosvenor, DAILY EXPRESS.

'Fiction based on fact makes for breathless reading... Exciting and moving...'
Kati Nicholl, TODAY.

'Shelled, rocketed, harrassed, they took in journalists and bought out diplomats and thousands of refugees fleeing Beirut... lt is called ARK for the most obvious of reasons...'
Bob Williams, BBC -PM Programme.

'We threw ourselves to the floor of the deck as more shells fired from PLO positions, exploded nearby. With panic breaking out all around them, the British crew kept their heads; Sea Victory sped her way out of the harbour while more shells poured in. Later, over ship to shore radio, we learned that a few minutes after our departure, one shell had landed on the exact spot where we'd been berthed '
Graham Leach, BBC MIDDLE EAST CORRESPONDENT. Commentary while escaping under fire on board SEA V1CTORY from Jounieh. July 28th, 1982.

'A powerful and moving novel which seems certain to prove as successful as its predecessors, KG 200 and BROKEN WINGS. ARK shines brightly as more than just a dramatic tale of heroism. It is a stark reminder of the futility of war and all its horrors '
Chris Stratford, THE NEWS.

'A modern story with a war background, coming out of the hell of the Middle East and based on fact. Central to a frightening expose of terror is the love of an American doctor, and a half French freelance photographer from Paris-Match. Races along in top gear with thrills all the way.'
Don Sutton, DAILY POST.

'This little port was like Dunkirk, packed with refugees. People were so desperate they were begging him to take their children. He had to decide who would live and who would die its a terrific story.'
