    2. This is a very impressive book written by an indigenous Australian author Set three hundred years into the future, it is a dystopian story of our world after it has been wrecked by all the things our civilisation involves Some small recovery has occurred and Ashala Wolf is the leader of a group of young misfits trying to survive under the new regime.The book has a heavy Aboriginal Dreamtime influence to it which fits well with the idea of this new world People are trying not to make the same mis [...]


    3. Full review is up on my blog Read Diverse BooksReasons to read this book.Stories about kids with powers are always fun Are you a fan of X Men, Miss Peregrine s Home For Peculiar Children, Misfits, etc Then you ll like this book Ashala has the Sleepwalking ability, which is the coolest, and allows her to do practically anything while she s in her sleepwalking mode fight with superhuman strength, travel through objects, or essentially make her dreams come true Other people can manipulate memories, [...]


    4. Read review on Wordpress There will come a day where a thousand illegals descend on your detention centre Boomers will breach the walls Skychangers will send lighting to strike you down from above and Rumblers will open the earth to swallow you up from bellow And when that day comes, Justin Connor, think of me With a quote like that on the flap how could I do nothing but love it With a writer that was going to show diversity of aboriginals which I have read very little of, how could I not love i [...]


    5. The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is the debut novel by Australian author Ambelin Kwaymullina Set three hundred years in the future, the old world has been destroyed and a new world, much smaller than ours, has risen from the flood water There are now people with abilities and some people, like Chief Administrator Neville Rose, believe them to be Illegals and want them locked in detention centres Ashala Wolf is one of these Illegals and is leader of The Tribe that resides in the Firstwood Ashala, [...]


    6. I m so so so glad I finally read this book, it s been something I ve been meaning to do for ages and I really enjoyed it Although dystopian has kind of gone out of fashion, I thought this one was very well done It is an Indigenous Australian OwnVoices piece, and the incorporation of Indigenous Dreamtime stories and Indigenous culture was beautiful Ashala Wolf was an amazing protagonist, I really enjoyed her arc I wasn t totally sold on the romance though, I like it at first but then I felt it wa [...]


    7. Reading The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf feels a lot like this.This book will fuck with your expectations It s original, unpredictable and utterly engrossing with its ingenious plot twist, imaginative dreamscapes, nightmares, memory flashbacks and sometimes even the complete loss of reality All your expectations and what you thought was true gets turned upside down The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn t exist And like that, poof He s gone Verbal Kint, The Usu [...]


    8. People with abilities are not a threat to the Balance I m afraid you are You bring forces into being that are too powerful and unstable to be allowed to exist unchecked Smart, original and utterly compelling The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is the first book in a young adult dystopian series by Ambelin Kwaymullina set in a futuristic version of Australia devastated by ecological collapse A little bit Alexandra Bracken s The Darkest Minds meets Isobelle Carmody s Obernewtyn , this is an unexpecte [...]


    9. Another case of it s not you, it s me This book should have been exactly my kind of book Dystopia, weird mind stuff and save the planet kind of kids YAY Instead, it was kind ofring Ashala is captured From there, it s a lot of trying to figure out what on earth was going on I think it lost me really early on, when the dog was leaping in the air in her dream eating bones I don t mind suspense and confusion in a book, but I have to be invested in the character or the story.or the world before you c [...]


    10. Ambelin Kwaymullina is a breakout author, an Australian aboriginal writer and illustrator, who is part of the Palyku people of Western Australia This is the story of the rebellious Ashala Wolf, who seeks to thwart the oppressive government in a dystopian society, and is told from her perspective as a captive being subjected to enhanced interrogation Ashala herself is a idealistic indigenous protagonist, including themes such as living in harmony and tranquility, with respect for all living creat [...]


    11. 2.5 stars Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Candlewick Press and Netgalley Ashala has a special ability, and has been on the since she was 12, not wanting to be assessed and detained because of her ability.Now Ashala has been captured though, and she s about to be interrogated by those who wish to assess and detain those with special abilities.This book just wasn t for me I had trouble keeping up with what was going on, and I just didn t f [...]


    12. If, like me, you have a childhood steeped in fantasy and folklore a love of the natural world and a soul deep recognition of its greater importance in the scheme of things a deep fascination with misfit abilities as in The Obernewtyn Chronicles and The X Men and a love for adventure stories involving youngsters outwitting malicious adults, you will, hopefully, love The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf as much as I did This didn t just hit all my storytelling wants , to borrow the analogy it barrelle [...]


    13. Some good ideas, but a lack of characterization, energy and action.Ashala is the teenage chief of the Tribe, a group of young people gifted or damned with special abilities They are considered as a problem in the society and are detained in camps Ashala is captured and interrogated, the bad guys wanting to learn things only she knows.The book had an unusual setting I appreciated, with wild things communicating with the superpowered kids and a special bond existing between some of them It gave a [...]


    14. Ashala Jane Ambrose is being taken to the machine that will break her It will use her memories against her, ripping into her mind and putting the Tribe in danger There is nobody to help Ashala The boy she trusted, Justin Connor, revealed himself as a traitor and is now her guard in Detention Centre 3 The infamous Chief Administrator, Neville Rose, has Ashala in his sights and will do whatever it takes to find the location of her Tribe in the Firstwood.But within these walls are Illegals like As [...]


    15. I really really enjoyed this book I thought I would struggle, there s so many different characters timelines since the story jumps around between past events But actually it was easy engaging I was invested from the first chapter I m definitely going to read the sequels.


    16. It s hard to believe that The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is a d but novel It s rich prose, brilliantly imagined world, and nuanced characters are sure to impress a wide ranging audience.There is an inherent Balance between all life, and the only way to preserve it is to live in harmony with ourselves, with each other, and with the earth I love the world building in this novel It s a dystopian world based on Australia with Dreamtime mythologies like the Serpent cleverly weaved into it Ashala Wo [...]


    17. This review can also be found at Carole s Random LifeI received an advance reader edition of this book from Candlewick Press and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.4 Stars This was one of those books that the I read, the I liked it I find myself gravitating towards YA books right now I found this to be a great addition to that genre I was first intrigued by the cover of this book which shows a fierce face of young girl It is a wonderful cover that I would no doubt pick up [...]


    18. This was so much fun Ashala Wolf explored themes I love humanity s relationship to nature, describing fellow humans as others so we can lock them up and mistreat them without being in the least heavy handed The characters were rich and interesting, their superpowers unusual and well thought out And I was particularly impressed by the structure, which allowed the story to completely turn on its axis about one third of the way in It was clever, and it worked logistically and emotionally The reader [...]


    19. Today I met Ambellin Kwaymullina and got my book signed She gave an amazing talk along with Claire G Coleman and Paul Collis


    20. A cracking story, brilliant characters especially Ashala herself , and an interrogation of see what I did there moral responsibility that is unusual in its complexity.



    21. See of my reviews on my blog the Book DeviantI was taken by complete surprise when I started The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf To be honest, I was expecting just another YA dystopia with the not like other girls main lead, and with how long this one is, I was expecting to DNF when the book was forcibly returned to the library database.I was also completely wrong.The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is like a dystopian X Men with a bunch of teens The world building was much in depth than that though [...]


    22. Aboriginal writer Kwaymullina creates a post apocalyptic world where some people have developed strange gifts the ability to rumble the earth, change the sky, and make real the things they do in their dreams These gifts are considered unnatural, and those who possess them are deemed Illegals in the society and so the children discovering their powers need to either turn themselves in to be incarcerated or run for the woods It s a fast paced adventure with some big twists and rich mythological un [...]


    23. Really great dystopian read Amazing characters and a super engaging story Definitely excited to read the rest of the series.


    24. This review forms part of my contribution to the Australian Women Writers 2013 Reading Challenge All my 2013 AWWC reviews can be found here.The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is Ambelin Kwaymullina s first novel It is based in the far future after a devastating cataclysm has left the world reshaped into a single continent, and the remnants of humanity living in a small number of cities and adhering to a philosophy of Balance to prevent future catastrophes.Some people are born with special abilitie [...]


    25. The Short Story This one took me by utter surprise I still can t believe how much I enjoyed it The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is definitely one of my favourite YA dystopians that I ve read this year Bringing YA dystopian together with elements of the Dreaming aboriginal legends , The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is a show of fresh talent with an authentic narrative voice and a intriguing plot Kwaymullina s debut is absolutely breath taking The Long Story To be honest I had no idea this was a d [...]


    26. Actual rating 2.5 I didn t mind this book it was okay everything was just a bit sub par about it It was a quick read but everything was out of place and confusing I feel like i skimmed most of the ending because to be honest I was bored with it and just wanted to get it over with I did like the idea of the powers and the machine it just feels super over done and like I ve read the characters a million times already.


    27. I finished this on the fence about whether it was a 2 or 3 for me and whether it was a potential 3 4 for YAs Ultimately, I am splitting the difference.I like the Aboriginal flavor of the dystopian post apocalyptic world created here And there s also lots to like about the environmental message and outlook espoused by the positive characters in the novel However, it s the baddies who run the government who use the term balance to justify their prejudice against those with abilities, those called [...]


    28. 4.5 Starsdivabooknerd 2013 11 tThe Interrogation Of Ashala Wolf can be described in one word, awesome This is not your average dystopian, a blend of Indigenous Dreamtime and a post apocalyptic world in which man destroyed our environment Ashala is a tough and feisty heroine, she possesses an inner strength rarely seen in most young adult protagonists She s socially aware and an environmental warrior, sharing a connection with both fauna and flora alike She s given a sense of peace, stability and [...]


    29. Pages Read 231You guys, I was SO excited about this, because it s Australian and the reviews looked so promising, but it s not really working for me At best, it s a three star and, the I think about it, the I think I m being too nice saying that.What it boils down to mostly is that I m over halfway through the book and I don t care about any of the characters They could all die and I d not be bothered That s not good, at least for me, as a character focused reader.It s certainly twisty, but, a [...]
