It's amazing to me how a good series can become a great one. I like the Infernal Devices so much more than the first one and this book is infinitely better than Clockwork Angel. I gasped several times and actually had to put my hand over my mouth! The only bummer now is the wait for Clockwork Princess.
Like some other reviews, I don't understand the need for the two narrators. I found it sort of confusing and at some points I didn't know who was speaking the dialog. Still, a wonderful listen. Make sure you freshen up with Clockwork Angel first.
I am a 40 something year old female that still loves young adult fiction.
I love Cassandra Clare's writing. She really gets the reader involved and creates a world in which you can loose youself. I am totally lost in this story. Days after I read this I am still caught up in it. This is the continuation of the story of Tessa, Will and Jem. In this book you learn why Will is such a cold hearted rake. You get a little closer to learning what Tessa is and your heart opens up to Jem. The plot surrounding them thickens and you will have a whole year of painful waiting to discover the outcome. This is truly a Shakespaerian tragedy in the making. I highly recommend this book and series.
... and love. The story is wonderful and the author is fantastic. What will happen with the love triangle? I can not wait to find out. I hate to have to wait. I feel like I am in London. I feel the characters emotions. My heart feels for Tessa it is amazing to hear everything she has been through and still has a goodness to her. The protectiveness of characters for the people they love and consider family....
I do agree that the consistency of the narrators can be improved.
I am reading the series despite the rather romance-y story. The author does a good job of developing characters and suspense. She makes likable people and a rich environment. What is sad about this edition is the readers who can't even keep the voice for each character straight so you sometimes miss who is actually speaking and get surprised when someone says something that doesn't fit the voice you hear.
I enjoy audio books but a bad reader can ruin a story.
I loved this book I couldn't sleep without listening to it. I can't wait to hear clock work princess, the narrators really made the characters come to life. I normally would read the books but my schedule is so busy and hectic that audible made it possible for me to finish a series of books I was dying to get through.
I love all books Cassandra Claire writes. I love, love, love Ed Westwick's narration of this book and The Mortal Instruments book. In my opinion and if I could I would have Ed Westwick narrate EVERYTHING I listen to, w/o a doubt. Please, please, please have Ed narrate more of Cassie's books.
I like the unique characters and the story presents enough of a mystery to keep my interests peaked. The readers are very good in this second installment. Good voice acting.
I thoroughly enjoyed the performance of this book.in my opinion this is the best performance of a Cassandra Clare he booked so far.and I have listened to the entire Mortal instrument series.
