I listened to the first book in the series a while back and was had no plans to finish the series, even though I LOVED Clare's Clockwork series. But, I recently watched the City of Bones movie and decided to give the series another try. I'm glad I did - the second book was much better. The story line was much more engaging/exciting and the narrator much better as well. Looking forward to book 3.
I did not expect the enjoyment I got out of this audiobook. First of all, the narrator (Sebastian York) has an amazingly sexy voice - perfect for the Drew Evans character! Secondly, his sarcastic sense of humor had me ENJOYING my 1+ hour commute to and from work every day - which is an incredible thing to say! Yes, there is some smut, but I would summarize it as roughly 24 chapters of laughter and 4 chapters of smut...the kind you turn down your car radio for to make sure the 'traffic neighbors' can't hear. But, overall a very enjoyable listen.
I had listened to the Infernal Devices series first and really enjoyed them; great story, great characters, good writing and good narration. I was really looking forward to listening to the mortal instruments and went into it with high expectations. I hate being overly negative, but must admit that it was painful. The language is incredibly infantile, the narration is painful, to the point of some words being mispronounced and the story line was very, very predictable. I am sad to say good-bye to the world of shadow hunters, but can honestly not continue.
Yes - absolutely
It's a tie between Irene Kennedy and Mitch Rapp. Both were fascinating in how they handled stressful situations and the political back-stabbing.
Same as above.
Gripping from scene 1.
Would recommend to any friend.
