What did you like best about Ashes, Ashes? What did you like least?
i liked the world building it was unique and I really could imagine it vividly .. Lucy was a good main character and Loe :'( I loved him so much
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I have mixed feelings because I think there is a second book for this series yet it is not a continuation .. so I don't know what to think
What does Cassandra Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
she have a voice of a narrator and I liked her performance very much specially for Henry and Leo and grammile rose :)
Could you see Ashes, Ashes being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I think so .. but with better adjustments to the characters .. Maybe Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer
Any additional comments?
I was so excited to read this book but it disappointed me in some ways .. I didn't enjoy it that much but the world building is very good
What could Jo Treggiari have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Write characters with more depth and smarts. These are not exactly cream of the crop..
What didn’t you like about Cassandra Campbell’s performance?
Her general lack of emotion was kind of annoying.
Any additional comments?
I originally wanted to listen to this book because I love post apocalyptic dystopian books. Most of the ones I read don't let me down, but I found this book completely predictable. So predictable in fact, that it made the characters seem kind of stupid in the most obvious ways. The only time I enjoyed Lucy as a main character was in the beginning of the book when she was alone. Her surviving on her own made her seem at least smart enough not to die in the wilds, but when she joins the camp, you kind of see that shes really not that bright. I also found the beginning of the book the only time I really felt bad for Lucy losing her entire family. The rest of the book mentions them, but not in the same way. It kind of fades them out. As weird as it sounds, the emotion and drive to survive that resonates in most apocalyptic books is only found in the first half of this one. The rest of the book is set up in a way that actually made me somewhat angry because the main character becomes stupid, attracted to a person who seems like hes a player, and pretty much becomes a follower. Based on this book, i don't think I would read another from this author.
