The epilogue of this book made me run out of the office to ball my eyes out in the bathroom. Thank the angel that someone like Cassandra Clare is writing novels that can touch the most primal emotions within us.
Excellent book! My absolute favorite series. It just got better and better. The narrator was the best narrator I have listened to out of all the books I've ever listened to. I love how he had a unique and distinct voice for each of the different characters. He really acted the scenes out and made the story come to life. He did a great job with the different languages too, This book keeps your attention throughout the entire book, I did not want to put it down. I have listened to it many times and it is definitely my go to book. I have referred it to so many people and I am sure I will continue to. I love all Cassandra Claire's Shadowhunter books, but The infernal Devices is by far my favorite. I love the fact it is based in the late 1800's. She did a great job of describing things and painting a picture of what life in London was like in that time period. There is action and mystery and great relationships and love... so much love. I just have to say the epilog really gets you right in the feels, everytime, So beautiful!
plays top much to love story with, at times, silly and repeated inner monologues. could have used some editing to tighten story. ending too pat and drags with tying up charaters emotions.
It is one thing to read about a love triangle full of jealousy and betrayal. But what do you do when all three parties love the other two with all of their soul?
these three characters are so beautiful. My heart was in constant turmoil; happy and broken for one or the other. I think Cassandra Clare did a perfect job of telling their story and working it out for them in the end.
Say something about yourself!
Ms Clare wrote a wonderful story in the Immortal Instruments but I think that this series, a prequel to the other, is even more endearing. The characters are so beautifully crafted, their journey exciting, and the emotions intense in the Infernal Devices. I want to read more about them as they see more of the world and the lives they touch. I have also started reading the novellas about Simon and Magnus individual story lines. I hope to see more characters have their own stories.
Ms. Clare writes wonderful stories and enjoyable listening awaits anyone - I recommend anything Ms. Clare has written so far!
