The voice actor's accents help really paint the picture in your mind. I think Ed Westwick did a better job with Will but Daniel Sherman does the perfect Jem voice. But there is a lot of chinese and welsh in this novel and the narration helps with that.
I can't compare it to anything else. It stands out to be a novel on its on.
Jem because he actually makes him sound strong and manly. Other actors always made him sound weak and fragile.
And Woosley Scott. I never really like this character before but Daniel's narration helped me connect with him more.
There were so many moments that pulled my heart strings. Anytime Will and Jem were together really seemed to be the most emotional for me. There is a love triangle in this novel but not in a sense of a girl has to choose between two boys. Tessa, Will and Jem all genuinely love one another enough to sacrafice themselves for the happiness of the other. That is a quality of the novel that I think makes it shine.
I would read this novel with the audio book. It is good to go back and listen after you have read the novel because Daniel does a good job. His pacing is a little slow for me to follow along with but that is why I just sit and listen. Trust me, if you are the type of person that enjoys listening to characters come alive, this will be a great purchase.
I'm all about challenging myself lately so I'm using books to do that. They inspire & engage me so I can see what works. Reading is my life.
Love, Sacrifice & Action!
I loved how he did Will's voice. In all the other audio books of this series no one really got Will's accent down but I think Daniel did. He did good for Tessa and Jem and everyone else too but I loved Will.
I couldn't help crying in the epilogue. It's a good ending but I couldn't help but cry.
This is a FANTASTIC conclusion to the series. It starts off fast paced and it doesn't really stop. I had a hard time turning it off and I got through it really really fast. I love Cassandra Clare and I think she is an amazing author and she didn't disappoint with this book.
I'm an LMT originally from the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. I lived in NYC off and on for 15 years. I decided I had enough of long cold winters so summer of 2012 I relocated and now live in sunny Sarasota FL and loving every moment of it. My favorite thing to do is lay on the beach all day long listening to the waves and a great audible book.
Yes I would but I would listen to the full series again. It never disappointed me.
I liked that Tessa, through her journey of life was able to have a life with both of her loves, in their own time.
No I have not. But I did enjoy his narration.
Yes, of course that would be when she transformed herself into the Angel
I did enjoy, very much, all 3 books in this series, however it was a little disorienting having different narrators for each book.
Just a book fool.
But, I find my heart divided.
In the name of all things Holy I do not even know where to start…
I was beyond excited to finally have the last installment of this series. I regret to say that for the majority of this book I was greatly dissapointed. It wasn't bad per say but very slow, sad, and extremely dramatic (not the good kind of drama either.) However, I had a feeling that I had to hold on. That, like the characters in this book, the end would justify the pain it took to get there. I was right. I WAS RIGHT!!!!
Fans of this series I don't think you will be disappointed with the conclusion. Heck you might not be disappointed at all. This book raised so many questions about death, life, and love. Keeping me pondering the three long after the last sentence. This series, I think has much more depth then its sister The Mortal Instruments. At the end Infernal Devices is a triumph and I am ever glad to know it.
There was no lack of tears on my part so watch out for that one. If you are a cryer you should probably save the end for someplace other then work (my mistake.)
Oh, and Will you are by far my favorite. Ever.
The narrator was great. For the first time I felt all the voices were right, especially Will's. C.Clare's obvious love of words and poetry come out more in this book than the others I think.
I must admit Will is my favorite. How could you not love him?
He got Will and Cecily's Welch voices just right.
I do not want to give anything away, but I was a bit scared to listen to this last one for fear of what C. Clare would do with theres characters - I need not have been worried. I thought this was the most romantic of the 3, which I personally loved......but I did wonder what happened to Bridgette??
Daniel Sharman gave a great performance. You could always hear the distinctions’ between the characters. Sherman was able to bring out all the emotions and the personality of each Character.
The epilog is what brought this story full circle. I was so hurt the way she left Jim at the end of the book, but the Epilog made up for the heartache. Great Ending to a Great Series!
I cried when I thought Jim was dead. I cried when Will finally dies with the people he loved most surrounding him. I was elated when Jim finally gets his life back and can live and love for one mortal lifetime.
After reading The Clockwork Prince, I seriously had no idea where the story was heading, nor did I know how I wanted it to end. The first two books were so amazing that I was afraid of being disappointed. We all knew that the story wasn't going to end well no matter what right? Well, you’ll find out soon enough if you haven't already. Cassie is a true expert on the element of surprise. The Clockwork Princess sent me on an emotional roller coaster like no other and wows me in every possible way! I'm sorry to see it end but hopefully we'll get to see some of the characters in City of Heavenly Fire.
Yes! In fact I already have.
This book I really liked Jem. Granted he was not as prevalent as in the first two books but he was certainly my favorite character in this book.
Will was given the perfect voice during this performance. The Ed Westwick did a wonderful job with Will in Clockwork Prince but I thought Daniel Sharman got Will's character spot on.
If I had the time to listen to it all at once I would have! Unfortunately it took about 4 days.
Worth your credit! In fact I bought this one since I had already used my credit on Clockwork Prince and couldn't wait another 20 days to hear Clockwork Princess!
I love the way all the characters in the book were strong minded and truly noble with no pretenses most stories make the characters silly and act unrealistically to the point were you don't believe in the story or the people in it causing their personalities to get lost, these characters stayed true to who they were and never faltered.they all were truly good and you gotta love a story that can pull that off!
There were allot of things that Truly surprised me throughout this book whereas most books tend to become a bit predictable this one had me shocked so many times it was laughable you feel the characters pain strife and indecision along with them, plus the ended was just beautifully amazing! I dare say perfect.
I have not but I do enjoy he's accent and even for the regular character's I preferred he's interpretation over the others and of course no one pulled off Williams's better than him, nailed it!
Yes and no when enjoying a good book you want so badly to know what happens next but also there's the fact of knowing your close to it ending so at time's you try to draw it out a bit, it's the best kind of frustrating lol
I read the mortal instruments before this and that made me hesitant to read these in my opinion I feel like these two series were written by two different people while similar in some ways it's completely different and better for it, the characters didn't go off and do dangerous things with no regards to the adults in their life and I love that Tessa wasn't a weak female character like most are she made logical decisions that didn't make me annoyed even for her lack of knowledge about the world she was thrust into she did her homework, I usually get annoyed at the girls caught in the middle of love triangles but I believe she did what was right and still stayed true to herself.I love the way she handle Will! she was her own person and didn't act like life was ending over every short coming.
Yes! The story was amazing and the narrator was fantastic! I usually become upset when they switch narrators in a series- however they finally found a good one with this last book. Could you please have him re-read the first two installments?
The series is the prequel to the Mortal Instruments series. I enjoyed the entire series very much.
I have never heard Daniel Sharman preform before, but I will be seeking out the books he narrates! Nicely done.
The end was unexpected, that's all I can say without giving too much away! :)
