    Story
    "When did everyone become British??????"
    What made the experience of listening to City of Heavenly Fire the most enjoyable?

    Super disappointed in the narration of this book! Everyone had a British accent. Most characters were from New York or at least somewhere in America. Nothing irks me more than wrong accents for characters (like TV series Reign, they are Scottish and French NOT English). Not happy that it felt like a third of the book was wasted setting up new characters for a new series, write a novella to do that. I was okay with tying the Infernal Devices characters into the story since I had read that series but it really wasn't necessary. The story and ending itself was not too bad, but I didn't feel it was a good as it could have been. The "Chuck" ending sucks and seriously lacked creativity, but at least the epilogue helped redeem it some.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Lose the new characters and story line.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    1. Use the same narrators for the whole series. Changing narrators on each book definitely takes you out of it. 2. Use narrators that can use the correct accents for each character. THEY WERE NOT ALL BRITISH!!! I'm not even sure ANY were supposed to be British.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cried at the ending because it left little to be happy about. The good guys win but at what cost...it seemed no one got a truly happy ending.

    "Narration was terrible."
    Any additional comments?

    I have never heard a worse narration. I'm not even finished the book yet, but I' plugging through because I love the series. The male narrator, Jason Dohring, sounds bored and monotone. He should never be used again for any book. I have heard third graders read with more animation. I hope he has another job because narration is not his forte.

    "Sansa Stark's petulant voice"
    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Heavenly Fire to be better than the print version?

    no


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator kept changing from book to book but once I realized what turned me off about the narrator of 'City of Heavenly Fire' I couldn't see the character (Clary) anymore, all i could imagine was Sansa Stark (same actress) sulkily reading the story to me.

    "what happened? Jason Boring, I mean Dohring"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I unfortunately would not recommend the audiobook. The naration is so hard to listen to. Sophie Turner's american accent blows Jason Dohring's british accent out of the water. Listening to him takes all the magic, suspense, beauty, and excitement out of this series. I would love to hear more emotion in his voice


    What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Heavenly Fire?

    The humor, definitely the humor

    "Great story - painfully bad narration."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    NO- this is the first time I would NOT recommend an audio book. I usually love audio books, but this is just BAD!


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

    The rest of the series. It's really great. Can't take any more narration though.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Terrible readers. Male voice has no inflection and his attempt at a British accent is just embarrassing. The female is decent, but it's too bad they couldn't get ANY of the previous readers.


    Could you see City of Heavenly Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Definitely movie worthy.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't judge a book by it's HORRIBLE audio. Even the previous books are great in audio form.

    What did you love best about City of Heavenly Fire?

    Love this series!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner ?

    Sophie Turner gave a great performance! But I cannot say the same for Jason Dohring. I did not like his story telling.

    "dissappointing narration"
    Would you try another book from Cassandra Clare and/or Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner ?

    I love Cassandra Clare's stories. I would not ever listen to Jason Dohring again. Sophie Turner might be ok, but her heavy accent is distracting at times, and it's difficult to change in this book when I was used to another voice from before.


    Would you recommend City of Heavenly Fire to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, only if they have read the other books in the series because it was not my favorite of the series.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner ’s performances?

    Jason Dohring has the most deadpan voice for narration. It is not pleasant. Sophie has a heavy natural accent and it's distracting.


    Could you see City of Heavenly Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I want the entire book series to be continued on the movie track. I'm hoping that the studios will finish the series and not stop with just the first book. I would want the same stars who played in the first movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm just really disappointed in the change of narrators. I'm finding it difficult to concentrate because their voices get in the way of the story. A good narration makes you forget someone is even reading. I have had to rewind several times because of missing things.

    "Loved the story - hated the narration!"
    What made the experience of listening to City of Heavenly Fire the most enjoyable?

    Like many others – I did NOT enjoy listening to the story. The narration was very poor. But, I loved the story itself. It was a little long, but I loved the way it ended – bringing the two story lines together, and setting up the next series in the bargain. I wonder if we will see Clary and Jace in the next one, but if not, I am really looking forward to it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Heavenly Fire?

    I liked the way the author had Clary be the hero, when I thought it would be Jace at the beginning of the book. Liked that twist. Also liked Clary meeting Tessa. Another nice twist. Some of the things they said to each other, and which were said by Tessa later make me think she and Clary will interact some more. I would like that.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner ’s performances?

    The narrators were all wrong for these characters. They might be okay for some other story line.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like series where the narrator (when good) stays with the series the whole time. You get used to the ‘voice’ they use for major (and sometimes minor) characters. You get used to the way the pronounce words. It drives me crazy when a new narrator pronounces names or words differently than I got used to.

    Really poor selection by the PUBLISHER on the narrators used! I don not blame the author! As I understand it, most of they time they have no say.

    "Much better than the previous narrators"
    Would you listen to City of Heavenly Fire again? Why?

    Yes. The book provided a hopeful and satisfying ending to the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Magnus Bane. He's just a cool dude.


    Have you listened to any of Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not heard them read, but have seen both of them perform. I HATED the previous narrators in this series and these two were a huge step up for me. People seem to complain about the fact that Sopie Turner is British and reads with that accent, but if they were paying attention they'd notice that's she does give the overtly American characters an American English inflection and I found myself satisfied with that. Dohring doesn't make grand sweeping inflections. He's subtle, just as he is in other work. I okay with that, possibly because I am familiar with him and his delivery.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    And the saga continues...


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it. I think people would get used to these two and they will improve with more work. They should utilize them again.

    "The end of a great story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am not sure I would recommend the audiobook. I loved the story, but the narration was not my favorite. I don't know why they changed the narrators so much during this series. That was hard for me. I enjoyed Sophie Turner. I think she did a good job, but Jason Dohring was just not good for this story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love all the main characters. How could you not.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I did cry a few times during this book. That is all I'm going to say. I don't want to leave any spoilers.
