Cassandra Clare, yes. I do not like the two narrating this book.
I love the story itself. I've read the books several times.
I like the one who narrated the first 3. She did a much better job and held my attention better.
I really hope the next two are not narrated by the same people.
I love the book. But I CANNOT stand the two who are reading the book! I prefer if there is a series that the same voice actor reads the WHOLE SERIES! So far it's a different reader every book!
I liked that Simon stopped being weak. I find the homosexuality uncomfotable. Also as a Christian I dislike the strange doctrine... Lilith was Adam's first wife??? Why do we have to change the Bible to write the story?
Cut out the constant blow by blow fight scenes. I would like to see the good guys win once in a while. Seriously, what a depressing read.
Neither one had much emotion. Molly was considerably worse than Ed. Couldn't tell who was talking half the time as Molly's voice sounded the same for every character. Molly mispronounced words often which was annoying. Since I am listening to the entire series it was jolting to have different accents for characters. Suddenly Camile sounds like a cross between a Russian and a French woman. Ed made Jace sound like Sylvester Stallone in Rocky. Sorry but to me that wasn't cool at all.
I got sick of the hopelessness of the story and the fact that at the end once again Jace was unable to control himself and the bad guys were in control. So tired of that. I read to be entertained not depressed.
Can't wait for the next book! This one is a horrifying shocking adventure into the shadow world. Clary and Jace are finally together but go through heart shuddering highs and lows. Narration could have been better though.
First off, I never leave reviews but was compelled to do this to spare others from this horrible experience. The narrators ruined the book! Ed Westwick's narration was okay - it wasn't the best - but I was able to get through his narration unlike Molly C. Quinn's narrations. Molly was HORRIBLE at narrating. She miss-pronounced words such as, stele (she pronounces it as STEELY) and she miss-pronounced Amatis's name! Furthermore, Molly narrated in the same voice and because of that, it was REALLY HARD to figure out who she was narrating as.
If I were Audible (and Cassandra Clare), I would honestly have book four, five and six re-done with Natalie Moore narrating. These books are well known, and it is disappointing that the bad narrators would ruin the enjoyment of the books.
I would recommend the actual book, not the audiobook.
Ed yes, not Molly. It's like I'm listening to two different books with this- Ed and Molly are drastically different. Molly reads so slowly and her accents are terrible, she doesn't pronounce a lot of the words properly and her voice is totally monotone; she never changes her inflection- and each chapter takes a lifetime to finish.. Ed has a wonderful flow to his voice, and his voice is low enough that it's hard for him to do a female voice.
Only half of it- Ed has a fantastic voice, but Molly was just exhausting to listen to.
I'm extremely disappointed with the constant changes of narrators- I've been listening to this series constantly for the last three weeks; to have four different narrators throughout the series and only on book four is very hard to keep up- it feels like I'm not even listening to the same series.
I love this book series, and I have gotten through the previous books in no time. This one, however, just makes me angry. Ed Westwick was great as Will in the Infernal Devices, but for some reason he is partly intelligible in his performance here. Molly Quinn sounds like she is crying whenever she speaks, and this really makes it difficult to enjoy, or fairly review, the story.
First, I equated the original narrater to the story; liked her voice and style.
Second, annoyed having two narrater; the guys voice was acceptable after the first chapter, however, the female voice was too shrilly and always sounded as though she was crying.
Stopped at chapter five.
As usual Cassandra Clare does not disappoint. this was a good as the others although I hated the narrator. Clary's narrator was awful.
