I think it is always good to read a book twice.
At the end when Clary went to see Jayce in the infermery.
NOT VERY INTERESTING
Best book ever
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.
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.
I didn't enjoy this book as much as the previous books.
Yes, but only because who likes a story with no ending.
No problem with the voice, but I thought the pacing was too slow.
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.
I would have to say the love story part of the story could be compared to that of the Twilight series.
The slowness in which she reads the book
I love a good book but thanks to dislexea i suck at reeding speling and ya. so bring on audio fiction!
if you like harry potter twilight and the hunger games you will enjoy thiss book. it is full of adventure romance and magic!
high, i really like the other book in the series as well but this was my 1st audio book o fthe series.
the story in general
i like her voice
can't wait till the next one
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.
I love this series and it always leaves me wanting more. The narrartor Molly Quinn did such a nice job. I love every book that Cassandra Clarie writes and can't wait for the movie !
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...
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.
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.
Magnus' decision in the end brought me joy.
