  • The Clockwork Princess: Infernal Devices, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 24 mins)
    • By Cassandra Clare
    • Narrated By Daniel Sharman

    Don't miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture, in theaters August 2013. Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close. If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy.

    What made the experience of listening to The Clockwork Princess the most enjoyable?

    The voice actor's accents help really paint the picture in your mind. I think Ed Westwick did a better job with Will but Daniel Sherman does the perfect Jem voice. But there is a lot of chinese and welsh in this novel and the narration helps with that.

    What other book might you compare The Clockwork Princess to and why?

    I can't compare it to anything else. It stands out to be a novel on its on.

    Which character – as performed by Daniel Sharman – was your favorite?

    Jem because he actually makes him sound strong and manly. Other actors always made him sound weak and fragile.

    And Woosley Scott. I never really like this character before but Daniel's narration helped me connect with him more.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were so many moments that pulled my heart strings. Anytime Will and Jem were together really seemed to be the most emotional for me. There is a love triangle in this novel but not in a sense of a girl has to choose between two boys. Tessa, Will and Jem all genuinely love one another enough to sacrafice themselves for the happiness of the other. That is a quality of the novel that I think makes it shine.

    Any additional comments?

    I would read this novel with the audio book. It is good to go back and listen after you have read the novel because Daniel does a good job. His pacing is a little slow for me to follow along with but that is why I just sit and listen. Trust me, if you are the type of person that enjoys listening to characters come alive, this will be a great purchase.

  • Love Letters to the Dead

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 35 mins)
    • By Ava Dellaira
    • Narrated By Julia Whelan
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to the dead - to people like Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, Amelia Earhart, and Amy Winehouse - though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating the choppy waters of new friendships, learning to live with her splintering family, falling in love for the first time, and, most important, trying to grieve for May.

    Wow. This book really blew me away. It's so alive and so real. The theme of living beyond those who die. It's just so profound. Julie Whelon does a fantastic job.
