Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Note – I would advise to read the first 6 books of the previous series before continuing to this one.. as i feel it would be a more enriching experience, being there’s a lot of back story prior this book. Being a fan of the original series, I am so happy that the journey of Ishmael Horatio Wong has continues in these next set of books. Although i will miss author Nathan Lowell’s voice, the narrator for this book did it justice and kept the pace going.
What other book might you compare In Ashes Born to and why?
This style of writing in this book is similar to other coming of age novels. there is not much climax and very low key, but instead you are drawn in by the character’s daily activities and challenges, trying to rebuild his life and getting his situation organized. for me it’s very calming and engaging even though it’s not adrenaline or emotionally charged as other books. I would compare it to the first book of Nathan Lowell, Captain’s Share.
What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I liked his tone of voice, inflections, accents, which brought life to the characters’ dialogue and narration.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
When money is no longer a hindrance, what would you choose to do with your life?
Any additional comments?
Read the first 6 books before starting this book!
