It really makes you think about they way some want politics and laws to change and how they would really effect society.
When Hanna was made to recount her ordeal in the parlor.
She could speak up during internal dialogue. I had to keep changing the volume. This is an audio book for goodness sakes.
Simone, she is fascinating.
There is definitely room for a sequel here, a way for Hanna to make things right, working with the Novemberists. Aiden could also be a part of that, since he is against chroming.
I was glad to finally listen to one of Mead's adult books. The future world she creates is very believable and full of detail. I was surprised everything wasn't explained at the beginning of the book, as Mead usually does. It got a little frustrating but then I read a review and understood that explanation would come. The supernatural element is very different from any other book I've read. This is a unique series.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this book in the beginning but as soon as the plot started to form and Aria began to change, I was hooked! I'd like there to be two narrators for the male and female parts in the age group corresponding to the characters.
This is very much like Sandford's earlier Davenport books, being on the hunt for a serial killer. The ending was quite shocking. I hope one of the new characters introduced in the book will get her own series.
This series is very imaginative and like no other Iv''e read. There are 2 types of vampires, one who can't defend themselves. The movie really didn't do the book justice at all.
This series keeps progressing well and Syndey is learning that she is so much more than her job with a surprising outcome.
This book did not match up to The Giver. Half of the book was spent discussing thread. The people lived and acted like Neanderthals yet were concerned about pieces of art and singing, depicting the past and future.
The book has a good plot but I think it's terribly frustrating for an adult to read. SPOILERS: Emma is being terribly abused but won't say anything because she doesn't want her cousins to loose their mother. Logic would say that she could end up abusing Emma's cousins as well. When she ends up in the hospital, when teachers try to confront her, she says nothing then it nearly ends in tragedy. I don't understand why the book was 14 hours. The story could have been conveyed in 7.
Well done! Michelle Moran does it again. She really knows how to find the most interesting stories of our world's history and keep the subject matter moving and juicy. The female narrators talked a little slowly for my tastes but I got used to it.
If they have read the previous Mortal Instruments books, yes I would...for closure.
This was my least favorite of the Mortal Instruments books. Conversations kept getting interrupted by someone's death, or screaming, or attack, or just somebody else walking into the room. Things went on unresolved and unknown by the main characters for way too long. There is such a thing as being too detailed...get to the point! I mean, how long can you hold a sword to someone's chest and discuss their death?
Natalie did a good job capturing Simon's character.
It's only 2 hours.
I attempted to read this book but had no luck staying interested until l listened to it. I am not sure I fully understand the ending but the plot and the details of the society are frightening and fascinating. The government has no accountability to the truth.
