    "WHY CHANGE NARRATORS? BORING BORING BORING"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    First I love the series I truly do. But this last book the narration is soooo horrible, I find myself fighting hard to concentrate. I am so disappointed :0( Sophie Turner & Jason Dohring do a really bad job there is no distinction between characters, no sarcasm nothing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story line as usual is great.


    How could the performance have been better?

    BACK TO ORIGINAL NARRATORS!!

    "Fantastic series that sucks you in"

    I loved all of the Mortal Instrument books and enjoyed getting into the story a lot. Cassandra Clare managed to create a world which I could well picture in my mind and I couldn't wait to hear how the story continued.

    The readings of all books were very well and brought life into them. I had to get used to a new voice in a new book, but they all did a great job!

    "i liked the narrators!"

    I thought the narrator's were actually far better than some of the past books. I'm sad to see so many people thank otherwise. Maybe it's just the change and the accents that put them off but they are far better at their jobs.

    "Poor narration"

    Story was good overall. More emotion from the narrators would have gone a long way in creating a good listen

    "good resolution, narration distracting"

    I found the pacing of the male narrator distracting. Also it was a bit odd how they did the American /British accents different from the previous books. It took away from my ability to really get absorbed in the story. Yet it was a good resolution to the multiple story lines.

    "My least favorite overall in the series"
    What did you like best about City of Heavenly Fire? What did you like least?

    Simon was the best part of COHF. He was just so funny (drunk Simon!) and sincere in this last installment in TMI series. It's been great to see how his character has grown. He got caught up in a magical world because of his love for his best friend, Clary, but he never resented her for it.

    What I liked least about COHF was Jason Dohring, the male narrator. His intonation for the 3rd person narrative was rhythmically boring, and I cringed every single time it was his turn to narrate. He did much better with dialogue when he used different accents to help animate his voice. However, he impacted my enjoyment of the story too much overall.

    Sadly, I doubt that I would ever listen to this last audiobook again which bums me out since I expected to do audiobook rereads.


    What other book might you compare City of Heavenly Fire to and why?

    I would compare it to The Book of Life (All Souls Trilogy, #3) by Deborah Harkness because both books have similar paranormal mythology.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Jason Dohring really needed more direction from the audiobook producer. His intonation for the 3rd person narrative was rhythmically challenging to listen to for approximately 95% of the book. Towards the end, I finally stopped reacting so strongly to his overall narrating style.

    Sophie Turner wasn't bad at all, but I was confused as to why she read the 3rd person narrative with a British accent when she could clearly do an American accent and many other accents for dialogue. It didn't bother me because I like the British accent in general, but I didn't remember any of the core group being British.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, I definitely would. I actually saw the movie adaptation for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones prior to reading the book upon which it was based. I had been on the fence about reading this series because of a certain rumored plot element.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this last book in the Mortal Instrument series overall, but it was my least favorite audiobook read out of the entire series. All the previous audiobooks had better narrators.

    "Now that's what I'm talking about"

    If you are coming from the last few books might not be looking forward to this one. Or at least I wasn't. However I was shocked and delighted to see that she found that spark from earlier books that I loved so much! I could not put it down!
