Love to read and get lost in my books! I started listening to audio books about a year ago (as I work-out) and love it- keeps me exercising. I then usually buy the good ones and read them all over again.
Bring back Molly Quinn or Natalie Moore, and Ed Westwick. They nailed it, brought the books to life. I'm sure these narrators would be fabulous in their own series- changing narrators wasn't the best idea.
Their accents are off. Sophie is passable but ...Clary is a New Yorker! Where is Jace's sarcasm- the tone is off- sounds lifeless.. I LOVE this series- but new narrators do not do the storyline justice- they even botch the pronunciation of common terms throughout the series. The book is well written. I was looking forward to this for so long :(
The book itself is great!
Can we re-do the narration with our old narrators?
No, Sophie Turner does a good job and is easy to listen to but as soon as Jason Dohring starts reading I lose all interest. His voice is flat and monotone. It's absolutely the worst narration I have heard.
Replace Jason Dohring and the book would of been fine.
I wish they would stop changing the narrator's for every book.
I am so tired of listening to these books read by different narrators every time!
Story was fine. Narrators ruined it.
First of all, I never leave reviews but was compelled to do this to spare others from this horrible experience. Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse than Molly Quinn's nasal yet pitchy voice, they hired these two. In fairness to Sophie Turner, she may have a vey thick British accent but she did try to use an American"voice" for the New Yorker characters and made some half-hearted effort to inject some emotion into her reading (though Jace's humor and sarcasm were lost on her). Jason Dohring on the other hand, may be the worst narrator yet! He sounded like he was reading Dr. Seuss to a bunch of 5 year-olds! Really, it was insulting having to listen to him. I wish I didn't waste a credit on this and just read the book myself!
The book is great, a great end to the series.
I have loved all of Cassandra Clare's books and have both read them and listened to them. Most of the narratiors have been good and sometimes even great. However, these two narrators are the worst I have heard in a long time especially Jason Dohring.
Please please please re-record this book maybe with Kate Rudd as one or the narrators.
Not sure who thought these two narrators would add to this audio book but they were wrong. I think I will need to switch to the Kindle version.
The story was great! Action-packed from beginning to end! The perfect climax to a captivating series.
Different narrators altogether. Sophie Turner was passable, even though she botched the american accent on numerous occasions, but Jason Dohring was aweful! Monotonous, choppy, his phrase intonations were all wrong and he lacks flow and feeling. I found it very difficult to stay focused on the story every time he started reading! What a shame!
Please re-produce with better narrators!
I love these books but the narrators have been and are still HORRIBLE!! There are wonderful narrators available. Why can't this publisher hire them?? It sounds like amateurs reading a book out loud.
I will not listen to any books listing these narrators. Better to read the books!
Interesting concept and story.
ANYONE BUT THE NARRATORS USED FOR THIS SERIES OF THESE BOOKS
I wouldn't wish those voices on anyone. The book was great as always but the voices ruined it.
The book was great. I have no problems with the writing just the voices that made me feel like I was listening to nails on a chalkboard.
Hello….Not everyone in the book has a british accent. Duh.
The Narration was my biggest upset with this book. I have been listening to the entire series and had come to recognize the voice of Clary as Molly Quinn. Not that Sophie Turner read poorly, but I simply couldn't get past the accent. It was a huge mistake and took away from the story. I was deeply disappointed with this final book. I also couldn't understand why there was a Male reader. He barely read and it barely made sense when he did either.
