I would change the decade that this book was written. As much as I try, it's hard for me to enjoy such old American literature. I guess I need a class for context so I can enjoy it. TOO LATE.
I have not. And I probably won't. If I didn't care for this, I don't think I'd like anything else.
Despite the content, he has a lovely voice. Not my most favorite voice, but he read well and made it at least a little bit compelling.
Yes, it made me listen to it as fast as possible so I could listen to something else.
Not much except context makes everything better. I'll live without it though.
I totally would. I would recommend the series to a friend. It's interesting and strange and vaguely Russian. I like it.
For me, it was when Alina saw Mal in the psuedo-Fight Club. It was probably just as upsetting for me as it was for her. Stupid boy.
She's an excellent Sturmhand, or the younger prince.
I would have if I could have, but alas, I have a grown-up job that requires most of my attention. I listen most in the car.
I really can't wait for the next book. I mean, I also want Alina and the Darkling to just go at it, but I know that can't/won't happen. I hope they find the fire bird.
I think I liked the Tucker/Clara dynamic the most. They just clicked so well. I was rooting for them from the start.
Well it's about angels and nephilim, but it's nothing like The Mortal Instruments or the Sweet Evil series. It really made podunk Montana sound lovely.
I haven't heard her before, but I enjoyed her, to be sure.
It made me laugh. But I was ready to rage quit if [spoiler] died.
I'm not swooning over Christian, and I'm worried about Jeffery. Also Angela; I just don't trust her.
Neil freaking Gaiman
I wouldn't, because I haven't read anything like it before.
Oh he's brilliant, no matter what he does. I love all his inflections and accents.
I love all the Hempstocks. Old Mrs. Hempstock is the best, especially when she's talking about the moon and how it was made.
It's an excellent story, better than The Graveyard Book. Not as fun for me as Neverwhere, but still really enjoyable.
Yes, and I have. I miss the female narrator from the first story.
About the same. At least I sort of cared about Seth.
I keep saying this: pronunciations.
Nah. Just to get it over with already.
Everybody wins and it's annoying.
It would have been better if it hadn't been about characters I didn't care about. It annoys me how just about everything works out for the best for these characters.
Well, Darkest Mercy, but only because I want it all to be over.
The pronunciations, for sure. Also he has no idea how to say 'respite.' At all.
None I guess. Taking out anyone would make the story collapse.
I wish I cared about these stupid faeries.
I did like that it ended and Aislinn was finally a badass and stopped whining. I didn't like that everyone gets what they want in the end. There's some suffering, but no really deaths or consequences. Irial didn't even die properly. Ugh. I don't like it when authors can't let go of their characters.
Irial would have stayed dead, Seth would have lost an eye, and Donia would have saved the day. Oh and Keenan would have died too maybe.
He was fine. Weird names with weird pronunciations.
Yes, to listen as quickly as possible for it to end so I could start something else.
I hope Melissa Marr's other books are better.
I wasn't quite sure what was happening. Then all of a sudden the story was over and there was an except from his other book, where I also didn't know what was happening.
Well no, because it's not purchasable.
Um it was a short story? So the one there was?
Not really. It was bizarre and didn't really do anything.
Not the best short story I've ever heard. Alas.
I guess so, since I don't have time to read actual print books, audiobooks allows me to get caught up with everything I've ever wanted to read.
I like how useless Clary is NOT. It's nice that the main female character isn't stupid and just there for the ride. She has goals and skills and flaws.
Umm well her reading the story allowed me to go to bed early since I wasn't reading the print book itself, since I don't have time? These questions are getting silly.
This book also made me laugh. Occasionally it also made me gasp in surprise. It's a good story.
I hope the movie does well in the theaters. I'd love to see the rest of the series on film.
Sure, if they liked the first story. It's a cool world.
Um, the rest of the Mortal Instruments books? It's a fairly unique story.
I miss the first narrator. She was excellent.
Sure, I laughed. The characters are interesting and fairly hilarious.
I don't like Cassandra Clare as a person, but damn if her stories aren't compelling, assuming she didn't plagiarize parts of it.
Weirdos with powers.
The very end. She jumps ship with her guy and leaves them all in the blackness to be eate? That's amazing and totally unexpected.
I like how the Darkling sounded but at least each character had a different voice. Lauren did very well.
Something about sunlight and hidden power, or something. I'd so see this movie.
I really truly hope the second one is just as good. The second in a series usually lacks in quality and fun.
