    Story
    "Is this roller coaster done yet?"

    I get that these books are about teenagers and all the hyped up angst and emotions they go through, set to a back drop of a strange and stressful world, but by the time I got to this book I was ready for the roller coaster to be done and this book didn't help the ride.

    Cassandra Clare has created a truly fascinating world with some memorable characters (ie Magnus Bane). But I feel like that world gets lost amongst character drama, where people throw tantrums, apply absolutely no logic to their situation, and go completely off emotion 24/7, getting themselves into stupid situations and then are rewarded by narrowly achieving their goals, only perpetuating the dramatic behavior. Basically it's exhausting, kinda like when you watch a scary moving and you shout at the t.v. telling the character to not open the door and yet they do and get eaten, same sort of feeling with these books.

    Molly C Quinn's performance was better than in the 4th book, but her tone stays about the same through the whole book, with little inflection and there is almost no voice difference in the characters, making it hard to keep up with who said what.

    To summarize, I love the concept of these books, the plots twists even surprise quite frequently, but I would like to see a more mature character development like Clare used in the Infernal Devises.

    Ive always had a vivid imagination. I'm a constant day dreamer and reader. Always enveloped in a land of mystery, listening to a new adventure or creating my own. I enjoy a good fiction book, especially a supernatural, scifi or under dog story.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I felt this book should have had more action throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed that this book showed a bit more of Simon's perspective. But the book as a whole felt like a roller coaster of love drama, continuously revisiting the same love triangles. I like when a book has a good mix of romance and action and this book did not meet that perfect mixture. It had more love drama than anything else. The first 2/3rds of the book was a bit too slow for my taste but the ending wasn't too bad. I personally enjoyed the other books in this series more than i enjoyed this one.

    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed Cassandra Clare's City of ... series so far, but this book is almost a re-write of book 3. The series really needs to wrap up the whole Valentine and Son as villains plot arc and come up with something fresh or end the series.

    Story
    "Danger, excitement, love and laughs"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, but not before reading the first 4 books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That Cassandra Clare doesn't make these books into a Jace and Clary love story. There's so much more to this series than just a teen love story.


    What does Molly C. Quinn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's just "okay" as a narrator, in my opinion.


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

    Absolutely!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Is it weird that I'm in love with Magnus Bane?

    "exceeded my expectations"
    What did you love best about City of Lost Souls?

    I loved the way Cassandra Clare wrote the story. The way each character dives into a personal quest while fight collectively to save Jace and everything.


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

    I don't know, maybe the serie Switched.


    Which character – as performed by Molly C. Quinn – was your favorite?

    Anyone.


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

    No, but If I could, I'd like have a little talk with Sebastian (or Jonathan). He could be very gracious and boring on the same time. Would be interesting talk with Magnus too. He always make me laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is amazing.
