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.
I loved the story but i wish it was read by Natalie Moore the person who read the other ones I was disappointed by the narrators. Please have Natalie Moore read all the books and stop switching narrators
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Horrible narators
I loved the first few books in this series which caused me to purchase this one. First of all, the first books were very well written. I do not understand the authors need for GD to be used several times in this book. The series is written about 17-year-olds, and written as young adult fiction. Also, this is the third time the narrator has been changed in this series. The first narrator was terrible so I can understand the first change, but the second was quite good. Overall, the story was not bad, but not up to par with the first books in the series.
Although I like these stories the bad narration was distracting. I became used to Ed Westwick although it took at least half of the book, but Quinn's lack of inflection, pronouncing names and tools differently from previous audio books and total lack of emotion really made me struggle. There really should be better consistency in a series, that should really go with out saying.
