If you could sum up Ariel in three words, what would they be?
magical vulgar(humor) adventure
What does Ramon de Ocampo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
tone and timing of jokes
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
a couple but to each his own. Though the end is slightly tragic, even though without it, the sequel could never have been.
Any additional comments?
I read Elegy Beach a while ago, the sequel, knowing nothing of Ariel. I loved it. It didn't really hint that it was a sequel but maybe if I'd already read Ariel I may have caught something of the sort. When I hit the about the author bit afterword or paid attention to the "from the author of Ariel" on the cover I decided to put it on my list of books to get to. I should have put it right to the top. It's a great story, though sometimes predictable. But usually surprising and almost always hilarious. Get this book and you want to listen to it again. If you're the type, you might even want a paper copy too.

Ending was both predictable and unfortunate.
Would you recommend Ariel to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes, with hesitation. Interesting concept, world and people. But never gives any answers and the ending is hard to take.
Which character – as performed by Ramon De Ocampo – was your favorite?
Do you think Ariel needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
It has one I think.
