    At the end when Clary went to see Jayce in the infermery.

    "Amazing!!!!"
    If you could sum up City of Lost Souls in three words, what would they be?

    Best book ever


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

    The writer really confuses you about Sebastian in this book. I wanted to like him and felt bad for him, but things aren't always what they seem.

    Story
    "I miss Ed Westwick"

    The story is okay. Not great, but okay. I'm a little tired of the "Jace isn't being Jace" thing. There was a point where it almost got really interesting, but then it went back to whining about Jace.

    But my big problem is with Molly Quinn's narration. Her pacing is strange and her pronunciation, particularly of the Latin, is horrible. Every time she says "praetor" (correctly pronounced pray-tor) as pree-ter it's like being stabbed in the ear. And when she's narrating from one of the boys' points of view? Forget about it. I miss Westwick's flat-voweled, raspy Simon, and the round tones of Jace, and the near whimsy of Magnus. Please, bring him back and get rid of Quinn for the next one.

    "Too Slow!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I didn't enjoy this book as much as the previous books.


    Would you recommend City of Lost Souls to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, but only because who likes a story with no ending.


    What three words best describe Molly C. Quinn’s voice?

    No problem with the voice, but I thought the pacing was too slow.


    Do you think City of Lost Souls needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    "Story was great narration on the other hand"
    What made the experience of listening to City of Lost Souls the most enjoyable?

    I really had a hard time with the narrator. She annouciates every word and syllable and reads really slow. This annoyed me so I didn't enjoy the book as much as I probably would have.


    What other book might you compare City of Lost Souls to and why?

    I would have to say the love story part of the story could be compared to that of the Twilight series.


    What aspect of Molly C. Quinn’s performance would you have changed?

    The slowness in which she reads the book

    "Could not take it."

    I am so fond of this series but I have to agree with the rest of the critics the narrator is the worst. She has no rang or distinctions in her characters. I love to listen to the stories because it leaves my hands free to do other things, but I honestly could not take this.

    Story
    "Ed Westwick, where did you go?"
    What did you love best about City of Lost Souls?

    I didn't love this book. I found myself feeling somewhat bored at times. Too many repetitive make out scenes and long lulls in the action made this my least favorite book in the series.

    The fact that Clary is extremely annoying, the make-out scenes are a bit over the top, and the constant use of the word incredulous really grated on my nerves with this book. The relationship between Alec and Magnus is completely ridiculous. Every character in the book is wrapped up some kind of drama filled romantic relationship, which really diminishes the quality of the story.

    All that being said, I still want to know what happens next. Uggg...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sebastion/Johnathan really carried the story. I don't particularly like the character, but at least he added something dynamic to this otherwise trite story.


    Did Molly C. Quinn do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I'm not a big fan of Molly Quinn... All he voices sound the same to me (kind of whiny), although I do like her Camille voice.

    The story wasn't the same without Ed Westwick. I hope her narrates the Clockwork Princess.


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

    Magnus' decision in the end brought me joy.
