    "skipping"
    Would you try another book from Cassandra Clare and/or Daniel Sharman?

    Yes I love her stories


    Any additional comments?

    I would be listening and it would skip ahead a couple minutes or even a chapter. I would go back and it would do it again in the same spot. I was loosening to this on a long drive but had to stop and just read the book when i got home. :( good book otherwise.

    Story
    "Daniel Sharman has the best voice!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Clockwork Princess the most enjoyable?

    The Clockwork series reflects a different writing style than does the City of Bones books. A better sense of scene and character connection. Most of all the voice of the lone reader, Daniel Sharman, is wonderful. His ability to pick up the regional accents and roll off the Welsh is beauty to my ears! Please use his voice for any remakes of the Clockwork series and I would re buy them!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Clockwork Princess?

    It has a lovely ending.


    What does Daniel Sharman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As above, and his use of timing in pauses and tone bring an enjoyable dimension. In other Clockwork readings, and more distinct in the City of Bones (read by Molly Quinn), the reader's lack of tone and flat delivery is an easy reason to turn off the book, or force your way to the end but not to re-listen again. I've listened to Daniel Sharman's reading 4 times and enjoy it each time.


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

    The ending always makes me cry.


    Any additional comments?

    The best reading of all the City of Bones or Mortal Instruments readings.

    If you could sum up The Clockwork Princess in three words, what would they be?

    Stunning, Emotional, Genius


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I cannot have a favorite. The writing is so complex. I loved and hated them all at different moments, with love winning the day.


    What does Daniel Sharman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His timing is impeccable.


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

    I would have, and did, waste hours listening to this book. I put off important tasks and ignored my own needs to finish this book.


    Any additional comments?

    How do you compliment genius? This book stole my breath, made me weep, made me laugh, and is still touching my soul. Thank you Cassandra Clare...for the whole series. Listen and be moved.

    When reviewing books I try to be fair; I appreciate that not everyone will be looking for the same things in a book.

    Story
    "Great finale to The Infernal Devices"

    Clockwork Princess is the third and final book in Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices trilogy, following on from Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince. My view of the series was merely consolidated rather than changed by my reading of the finale – Cassandra Clare is excellent and writing characters and worldbuilding, not so great at pacing.

    What I liked

    The characters. I adore Tess, Will and Jem and I felt the way their story was developed in this final volume was very well written and very touching. I really felt for all the protagonists in the book. We also get to see the development of Will’s relationship with Jem from their initial meeting through flashbacks. I know some people disliked the epilogue, but personally I loved hearing about what happened to the characters after the ending of the story. I also loved all the secondary characters – Charlotte, Henry, Cecily, the Lightwoods. Writing characters and their interactions is clearly Clare’s real strong point. I enjoyed the fact that certain characters were not necessarily evil, believed they were doing the right thing, but were still major hurdles for our protagonists.

    The narration. Yet again the trilogy switched narrator. All four narrators did a wonderful job, but I do much prefer it when the narrator is consistent across a series. Daniel Sharman took the reins for this final book and did an excellent job. One thing that did bug me, however; Will suddenly develops a Welsh accent! Admittedly, there is ample justification in the story given what we learn about Will’s background. I would have preferred it to have remained consistent with the neutral British accent he is given in the previous two books. It’s hard enough adjusting to a new narrator without a main character’s accent changing. It’s also interesting when the narration gives away a plot point. At one point, a character enters a place and says a few words. His identity is not revealed at that point in the book, but due to Sharman’s excellent voice work he was immediately identifiable to the listener.

    The letters. The plot was developed through the use of letters. I thought this was a particularly efficient way of moving the plot forward without having to develop more secondary characters.

    The action scenes. There are definitely a lot more action in this book before and during the confrontation with Mortmain. The London Institute Shadowhunters’ attacking Cadair Idris reminded me of Aragorn’s attacking the Black Gate in Return of the King or Lan’s defending the pass in Memory of Light. I would have LOVED to have seen Henry’s face when that first automaton came to life “oh… crap!”

    What I didn’t like

    There was nothing I specifically disliked about the book. It did enjoy it and was touched by Will, Tessa and Jem’s story. However, for me it didn’t quite pack the emotional punch of A Memory of Light or Emperor of Thorns. I suspect that was because I had been spoiled so certain fakeouts lost their impact when I knew they were going to be reversed later on.

    All in all, I gave Clockwork Angel four stars out of five.

    "All 3 books have been excellent."

    Will, Jim and Tessa are such strong characters. Charolette, Henry are perfect together. I was not sure I would like this kind of book, but Cassandra Clare has won me over. The narrator, Daniel Sharman does a terrific job bringing the characters to life. I could not hardly put these books down.

    "Okay"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Sure. It was good. It was hard to keep track of who was talking sometimes since it was a guy. He had amazing accents though.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I don't know. It kinda runs together in my mind.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Sorta. I wish he read faster.


    Was The Clockwork Princess worth the listening time?

    Yeah.

    "Oh Wow! Amazing story."
    What made the experience of listening to The Clockwork Princess the most enjoyable?

    Daniel Sharman really made me feel the characters and I really liked the love triangle that was not a betrayal. It also gave me a little bit of where the Shadow Hunters came from in the Mortal Instruments series.


    What other book might you compare The Clockwork Princess to and why?

    I don't think there is another book to compare it to.


    What does Daniel Sharman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Daniel Sharman really made me feel the emotions of the characters and connect with them.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Daniel Sharman would've narrated the other books in the series. He is awesome!
