Ashes por Ilsa J. Bick

    magelet87: Before Bick adds the dystopia element and its just the three of them surviving the apocalypse, this book reminds me of Born. It had the potential to be as good as that trilogy.

I was so excited to read this book! Dang! If I didn't like reading speculative/survivalist/dystopian fiction so much I wouldn't have finished it. The characters drove me nuts. Alex was either too smart or too dumb--it never evened out--and I wanted to slap Ellie most of the time. Rule could have been more interesting, but that was drawn out too long. I grew weary of the obligatory love scenes and the predictable love triangle. The writing bugged me, too. Bick went overboard with the use of italics when it was completely unnecessary; the sentences were emphatic enough as they stood. It was difficult for me to tell between the 3rd person limited and omniscient sometimes, and she switched off between using cutesy words (hi, Alex is not cutesy) and vicious imagery enough that it was jarring. And oh. my. god. Could she refrain from ending every chapter with a twist? Not only did that become old hat, but it quickly became comical as well. I felt like singing, "Duhn-duhn-DUHHHHN!" every freaking time.

I chose to finish it and give it three stars because I generally find this kind of world building fascinating. It always gets me thinking about what I would do to survive and help my loved ones. And the Ashes world is plenty interesting--the electromagnetic impact is a new one to me in the zombie fiction world. I kept up for the action scenes, but I suspect I'll read the synopses of the following books rather than spend time reading them. ( )

Received this book from a free give away.

What can I say apart from I would recommend this book to everyone.

I started reading this book with an open mind as this is the first book I've read by this author & I was not disappointed. I loved the whole plot to the story & found it quite refreshing to read a book which wasn't too bogged down with descriptions.

Can't wait to read the next book in the series Shadows. ( )

//vague spoilers//

i am horrified. i read this book way back when it came out and i remember really, really enjoying the the book. i remembered the EMP and survival and a boy. i liked the book, i remembered, and i needed a book to read so when i was browsing what was available to borrow from my library and saw it, i thought hey, let's reread this since it's about survival and an EMP.

then that twist happened and i did NOT remember the second half of the book at all. the Christian fundamentalist cult stuff was harrowing. i didn't understand what happened to Tom, and why Alex had feelings for Chris??

And i liked Alex's character in the beginning, too, but during the second half, her character did a 180* and i didn't like her behavior or actions. And i don't even get the ending; i mean, i do, but i don't understand Alex or Jess's actions, or even Chris's.

i just really didn't expect that twist.
