    1. this book had a lot of potential, but ultimately it just didn't win me over. hi, have we just met??? if so, let me tell you that i love large-scale survival stories and i love teen dystopian novels. i'm not even hiding in the shadows about it anymore. and there are some good ones and there are some bad ones. this one is grouped in my mind with the susan beth pfeffer last survivors trilogy, which means it is conceptually strong, but is unrealistic in its portrayal of human response. more on that [...]


    2. At first I was thinking that a good comparison for the book would be a blind date but thinking further it's closer to a relationship that is just about to break up -- horribly. There's no mystery, passion is long gone, and any intimacy is just a sad joke from here on out.At no point did I care enough about anyone in this to to accept the things that goes on throughout the book. Eventually not only did I stop trying I just about shut down. I had less than an hour left and I kept thinking how did [...]


    3. Um, when your hero chick is supposed to be crazy grubby, with necessarily shorn hair and tatters for a wardroben't portray her on the cover wearing spotless skinny jeans, long lush locks, and a bright white tea (seemingly with a push-up bra to boot). Justn't. I skimmed from chapters four on and found this to be what the over-descriptive book jacket promised: insipid, MOR, boy-saves-girl-who-acts-tough-until-the-kissing-starts.


    4. The beauty of Ashes, Ashes is all in the story's details. I don't think I've read another dystopian with the level of deep, engrossing detail that Jo's novel has--in Ashes, Ashes, I can smell the world's decay, feel the rain pounding on my back, sense the pain in my lungs as Lucy runs for her life.everything is alive, immediate, and vivid. Lucy and Aidan are a sweet young couple, and the story is dark but not without hope. Recommended!


    5. There are any number of cracking ways to open a novel, but I am going to argue that (view spoiler)[dismembering a turtle (hide spoiler)] is not one of them. <--That’s not really a spoiler. But it’s gross. I put it in spoiler tags because I’m conscious that this might show up in people’s news feeds while they’re eating.Sure, this makes a pretty impactful point about the desperation of Lucy’s situation. But what immediately follows is a several pages long, point-by-point description [...]


    6. Ashes, Ashes is a terrifyingly realistic view at the world s end. BookWhisperer is not known for books such as this one; after several struggles this is usually a book that I would have avoided. Much to my surprise Ashes, Ashes will be the first of this type of book on my favorites list. Lucy is the strong and courageous sixteen year old that will follow throughout this novel. Being the soul survivor of her entire family she has set out to living in the wild alone. It is remarkable to follow thi [...]


    7. Global warming has wrecked havoc on New York City. Streets and highways have been turned to rivers and Central Park now has an ocean view. Four years later, a virulent plague strikes and wipes out much of the world's population, leaving a remnant of less than one percent living. Lucy is the sole survivor of her family; everyone she knows has died. Now she makes her home in the wilds of Central Park. For a while she lived in a city shelter, but the Sweepers kept abducting people for some unknown [...]


    8. I had wanted to read Ashes, Ashes for such a long time – it received high ratings when reviews started to emerge so I put at the top of my mental “young adult dystopia ‘must read’ list”. However, now that I’ve read it, I’m not entirely sure it is a dystopian novel. I think people can get confused and think that if it’s a futuristic novel (especially if it’s an apocalyptic novel) then it’s automatically dystopian. While I’m not completely certain (and therefore it shall rema [...]


    9. Jo Treggiari seems like a pretty cool woman from the little blurb about her on the back flap thing and this is a YA dystopian novel with a female protagonist, so this story should be fun right? Eh, not really. This book didn't succeed in convincing me of much of anything and I found I was counting down how many pages were left every time I finished a chapter. I didn't like any of the characters enough to care about them and I didn't really know what they wanted (other than to survive from day to [...]


    10. This really had a lot of promise, but (…oh, there is always a but) it just didn’t do it for me. The author could’ve done so much more, but didn’t take advantage of what she’d already set up. It was interesting, but not really exciting. Quick Overview: 16 year-old Lucy is surviving on her own in the wilds of Central Park, while floods and droughts still plague New York City. The ravage of natural disasters and the epidemic that killed millions of the population leaves Lucy as the last s [...]


    11. Review originally posted at: supernaturalsnarkActual Rating: 3.5/5MY THOUGHTSThough Ashes, Ashes presents us with a bleak outlook with regard to the physical state of our world in the future–cities and enormous groups of people decimated by disease, starvation, and forces of nature–we are also given a story lined with hope as we watch the survivors carry on in the face of so much death. First, we get to meet and watch young Lucy spend her days completing tasks we'd like to think we'd be capa [...]


    12. Review originally posted to books4heartsThere is a difference between Post-Apocalyptic fiction and Dystopian fiction. While they run together frequently, dystopias often being the result of an apocalypse, and apocalypses normally creating at least slight dystopias in the way the world is run. Ashes, Ashes has elements of dystopia but is a post-apocalyptic book for the most part (to me, anyway!) and I liked that a lot. I also believe it's a stand-alone, although it could easily be a series, which [...]


    13. June 24th, 2014 THE REVIEW2.5 stars.I'm only doing this now because I'm worried that I won't get the chance to go back and actually finish my notes without rereading it again. Either way, I've pretty much said most of the problems I had dealt with while reading in my previous update.I'm sorry for the really lacklustre of a promise for an interesting review, but I'm just too tired to relive it again at the moment >_<;June 20th, 2014 RTCHaven't spammed posted my update responses to readi [...]


    14. Post-apocalyptic books and I just do not mesh- and this was a great example of that. I just found this book to be really weird, not to mention that it bored me to the point when I almost fell asleep while reading it. Since I read this book over a month ago as I write this, I have already forgotten so much of the story. If it weren't for the handy synopsis, I wouldn't even have been able to remember the main character's name. The characters were just so bland and so was the plot- or lack thereof. [...]


    15. This book is a very intriguing read. The main character, Lucy, has survived a virus that killed off 99% of the Earth's population-including her family. Lucy is a very industrious girl; she lives on her own and survives by herself. The action begins right away in this novel; the reader will not be bored. Lucy meets Aidan after he helps her evade a pack of wild dogs. She joins him and the other survivors; the reader will enjoy meeting the various different personalities. Of course, there is always [...]


    16. Ok wellWhat I liked - Lucy Sammy everything in-between the extreme descriptions.Don't get me wrong, I like an author with a clear point of view but I also don't need a road map with every hedge, pebble and sidewalk explained to me in order to get to my destination. Also there didn't really seem to be a whole lot to the book. The same kind of stuff keeps happening with no real surprises. I kept thinking, alright this time it's going to be different. But the story never took a different path. In h [...]


    17. A weathery mix of "The Day After TOmorrow" meets an "I am Legend" infection mingled with the pocket kife of "Survivor Man".Sounds cool right?WRONG!Or at least on my end.I found myself kinda hoping that the main character drowned or fell into a volcano.Not my cup of Pepsi but you might like it ;)I really thought I would have liked it RATS! Hates it when the description is better than the words inside.


    18. ASHES, ASHES is a terrifying reminder of how much I hate camping. Okay, personal bias aside, the survival aspect is a huge part of the story, and the details are so realistic that it didn’t take too much of a leap in imagination to envision Lucy’s harrowing life in post-apocalyptic New York. It’s not glamorized in any way; life is tough, and I loved how what she actually needs to do to survive isn’t just brushed aside.It does take a while for the plot to kick in, though. While I apprecia [...]


    19. I like Ashes, Ashes.*****DESPAIR.Ashes, Ashes transported me into a future that is very likely to happen. Environmental catastrophes and epidemics brought humankind back to basics: no electricity, no medicines, no shelter. For the desperation Treggiari instilled in me while walking inside her post-apocalyptic world, I give Ashes, Ashes a 4. For failure to deliver and fully resolve the conflict, I give it a 3.Lucy is capable of surviving by herself. Her constant enemies are enormous rainshowers, [...]


    20. I have never been disappointed with a dystopian novel yet, each one is different and original and I love the dystopian genre very much. Lucy is a loner, she is one of the lucky who hasn’t died from the black plague, everyone in her family had died, she’s all alone, living in the woods, with a homemade shelter, minimal food and water, and lives each day to the fullest, knowing that any time she could die. Then one day she meets Aidan, she is instantly irritated at his “cool” behavior, she [...]


    21. I wanted to like this book. I did. It's got the elements I want in a post-apocalyptic survival book, and some of those actual survival bits were the ones I really did like about Ashes, Ashes, from the protagonist having a looted survival manual to survivors banding together, growing their own food and what not.Unfortunately, the characters were rather flat, the central love story/relationship as cliché as they come (view spoiler)[(girl meets cocky, arrogant, good-looking boy, girl hates boy, ne [...]


    22. Ashes, Ashes is a YA dystopian that takes place in future New York. The country has been ravaged by a viral epidemic and weather related disasters, the population has been decimated and there are pockets of survivors doing the best they can to manage from day to day. Lucy, the main character, is isolated, dirty, living in caves, doing what she needs to do to survive and not draw the attention of the "sweepers". The sweepers are a sinister group that hunts down and kidnaps survivors. Lucy meets A [...]


    23. I have to say that I loved this book! I'm still fairly new to the dystopian/post apocalyptic genre so I went into this book open-minded, but it just left me wanting more!Ashes, Ashes was a very visually intense book. The author did a fantastic job at creating a thrilling adventure. Lucy lived just like most teenagers, but when the plague wiped out most of the population, she was forced into a dark "world", where survival was a struggle.I found the book to be very realistic, from the geographical [...]


    24. Holy adrenaline rush!!! From the opening scene until the very end there was action galore. But there was also wonderful character development and lots of twisted and turns.I loved it. It's exactly what dystopian, post-apocalyptic YA should be. A must-read for fans of the genre.I'll have two signed copies up for auction at slavelakebookauction.wordpress next week!


    25. Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari is a Post-apocalyptic book set in the future after the global warming finally started to take a toll causing unusual temperature changes, flash floods, earthquakes, and lightning storms. Doing so destroys civilization, toppling cities, and changing the landscape. The worst is still yet to come, the plague an eradicating disease whipping out the population. It kills in a matter of hours. The vaccinated are safe for now soon the virus mutates killing more and more the [...]


    26. This is another dystopian novel written for young adults. Still, I LOVE reading the young adult books because they are what I have taught for a melee of years (Just retired from teaching. Congratulate me. Nice!!) I will always love this type of book because they normally have nonstop action, and this one is just like most of the others with that and more. The characters are well rounded, the story is very intense and holds a reader's attention, and the imagery is great. If you want a quick read [...]


    27. InhaltTödliche Epidemien, Tsunamis und Klimakatastrophen – die sechzehnjährige Lucy hat das Ende der Welt kommen und gehen gesehen.

    28. "Spannender Dystopie Jugendroman"Inhalt:Lucy hat alles verloren. Ihre Eltern, ihre Geschwister, ihr Heim und ihr ganzes bisherige Leben und dennoch kämpft sie, kämpft jeden Tag um das nackte Überleben, denn die Welt liegt dank unzähligen Naturkatastrophen brach. Und so lebt Lucy allein, in der Wildnis des zerstörten New York und macht sich nicht weiter Gedanken darüber, ob es noch andere Menschen wie sie gibt, denn ihre Angst vor der Epidemie ist einfach zu groß, die auch ihre gesamte Fam [...]



    29. Dystopian is my favourite genre of books to read. I liked the idea of this story and was looking forward to reading it. I would have liked more action and felt that it was difficult to grow attached to the character, although they had the makings of being great characters.
