Fantasy book review
I have always loved this series, in a way I couldn't love The Mortal Instruments. I think it is the writing of the main characters, which I prefer. This book was the perfect ending to such a great series, brings me to tears each time I read/listen.
I also adore the reader, he does the different voices so well, and is very captivating.
It was so well written drawing you in to a world of passion. I was so wrapped into the book that as time moved and characters...well my heart aches with the characters.
To say this book is beautiful isn't giving it nearly enough credit. It was epic.
I love this author's ability to write about loyalty. It is just something rarely written about with such intensity. There's a lot of books about people doing what they think is right or overcoming a moral dilemma, but books about loyalty are few and far between.
I also love the use of quotes from wonderful written works. They are each beautiful.
I think it was when Tessa hit Will over the head. I just didn't expect it from her. I knew she was a bit feisty and strong but it wasn't until I heard that part that I realized Tessa is the hero of her own story. Then Will's response - awesome.
"Love the way it should be"
It was difficult dealing with different narrators for every book. I personally think that the two who did the second book would have been fine to do all 3 books. If there was to be just one narrator - the woman who narrated the second book was best. They all had talent and they all let you into the story ....but she REALLY owned the characters.
I always felt that the story of Will and Tessa was rushed. As I listened to this book I felt a bit short changed. I never really felt that Jem and Tessa had that g
I have loved reading The clockwork princess and this audiobook version is truly AMAZING !!!! I didn't know this actor at all but I sure hope he will read more audiobook like this, it's a pure treasure to listen to ! he voices the characters so well and Will Welsh accent ....it was a real pleasure to listen !!!!
I have read The Infernal Devices three times, and now I've listened to the audio. Needless to say, I love these books. Tessa, Jem and Will are three of my favorite characters ever. Jem is absolutely wonderful and such an amazing character. I cry every time I read this book for there are several sad parts near the end. I have to say this book has the best epilogue I've ever read of any book series. I am not a Will hater I actually love him bunches, but Team Jem all the way!
