This is one of the top for me, especially since the format of the book has Clay, the MC, listening to Hannah's tapes. I felt like I was having the experience with Clay, and I loved both of the actors performing the text.
This an important book to read for anyone who has a teen/teens in their life. I was a teen once (and only once, thank goodness), but I’ve spent the past eleven years working in a high school. The difference is that now, as an adult, I can look back on all that made me miserable in my teen years and know that there is so much more to life than the volatile ecosystem that is the American high school. Many adults expect teens to just get this, but how can they? They have not lived beyond this experience yet, and without a guarantee that life will get better, some teens make the same decision that Hannah makes.
They simply were Clay and Hannah. That's all there is to it.
Everything affects everything.
Yes. I am already. The story. Oh my god, the story! Cassandra Clare has outdone herself, and Daniel Sharman narration is as perfect as the story. He is Will. He is Jem. And because of the impeccable realness he brings to these characters, I'm even more devastated to be done with this book.
THE EPILOGUE!!!! My eyes well up just thinking about it. To read it is to choke back sobs (all in a good way).
The cave scene in Cadair Idris.
YES! I did laugh quite a bit. Gideon and Gabriel Lightwood are great comic relief among the heaviness that is the main story here. I sobbed at the end. Flat out sobbed.
This is my favorite book of the trilogy, my favorite trilogy in general. And Daniel Sharman, thank you for bringing my favorite Shadowhunters so beautifully to life.
