    Story
    "Satisfying finale"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Clockwork Princess to be better than the print version?

    The narrator was very good, I never would have bothered to read the poetry snippets
    at the chapter breaks,so I am glad I listened.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked all three main characters, Tessa, Jim and Will. They loved each other all through the story.


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

    reading the poetry, the lilt of what I assume was a welsh accent...very sexy!


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

    no, I spaced it out.

    Story
    "Love at Last! Answers to all those questions!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I'd recommend this book to any who would listen to my recommendations. This book is full of expression of humanity's highest emotions and sacrifices....romance, heart break, magic, and of course, love of all kinds. Along the line, questions posed early in the series are answered...sometimes so quickly as to be missed if the reader isn't paying close attention, which leads to a VERY satisfying end to this story. Very deep subjects are probed, sensitively articulated, making this an excellent story. Will and the Silent Brothers take on a larger role in this tale, as do Gideon and Gabriel Lightwood, which fills in their background for the Shadow Hunter series.


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

    City of Lost Souls...for the same reasons stated above.


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

    A beautiful rendering of local dialects and expression of the Welsh language. A poet's intonation of a 19th century story that totally suits the tale. Very romantic in terms of Will especially.


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

    Oh yes, more than one. Often chuckled at some of the wit that Will tossed about and shed tears toward the end of the story but can't say why without it being a spoiler. Suffice it to say they were tears of happiness and sadness at the same time.


    Any additional comments?

    By all means, read this book and have a special person about you when you do, because you're going to want hugs several times throughout this story.

    "Great end to a wonderful series!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Clockwork Princess the most enjoyable?

    Loved the story and the narration was spot on. Author does a great job of fretting the reader to care about all of the characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great characters and conclusion to a wonderful trilogy.


    What about Daniel Sharman’s performance did you like?

    Excellent! Would listen to him again in a heart beat.

    "<3 <3 <3"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Clockwork Princess to be better than the print version?

    I think the audio version would be better simply because I don't speak either Welsh or Mandarin Chinese, and Daniel Sharman does a great job at pronouncing those words.


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

    I can't say without Spoilering... But it was tragic & beautiful... and I was totally crying at work.


    Which character – as performed by Daniel Sharman – was your favorite?

    I think he was MADE to play Will.


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

    *SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER*
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Poor Will. I have to admit... I will probably NEVER finish listening to this book again. I'm forever going to turn it off before he dies, because then he can be with Tessa until the end of time. That whole scene was so heart-wrenching.... I just can't....
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Any additional comments?

    Extremely emotional, but it does everything I expect the end of a Series to do: End. I was not left with millions of questions about what happens to my beloved characters after the epilogue, and even though the story broke my heart, I love it.

    "Fell asleep..."

    After looking forward to this book for ages, I feel completely let down. Boring and redundant would be my best description. It didn't feel like it was even written by the same author.

    On top of that, I wasn't crazy about the narrator. He did an OK job with the accents, but Tessa sounded rote and mechanical. I literally fell asleep TWICE during the first couple of chapters.

    I honestly could not wait to get to the ending, which seemed to take an unnecessary amount of time. The "I love that one, but I also love the other one" line got really boring!

    The first two books were very enjoyable but this installment falls way short of expectation.

    Story
    "All questions answered"
    Would you listen to The Clockwork Princess again? Why?

    Having finished listening to the third book, I'd go back to listen to the series again. Heartache and victory were keenly felt in the third installment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love when Tessa took on the form of the angel to defeat Mortmaine (is that spelled correctly? I listened and never read the book). I also loved that Tessa was able to have her second love as well.


    What about Daniel Sharman’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Sharman made each character come alive and made them each individual. His voice was very interesting. Very pleasant to listen to.


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

    Currently it is 4:00am. I'd put my earbuds in my ears to listen until I fell asleep. I had to finish to see what's happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to this series, I want to start the mortal instruments again. One question. Wouldn't it have been A nice reward if Tessa, having freed the angel's spirit burned the demon half of allowing her to become a shadow hunter? But then I guess she'd not been immortal. Anyway, this book tied up the loose ends. I'm a sucker for happy endings.

    What made the experience of listening to The Clockwork Princess the most enjoyable?

    The depth of emotion in the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    So hard for me to decide.


    Have you listened to any of Daniel Sharman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will certainly be looking for anything he's narrated. He captured the personalities and the emotions of the characters perfectly!


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

    ****Spoiler alert**** I was moved to tears when Will passed away.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best trilogies I've listened to.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would've liked less predictability.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I'm not sure. I've enjoyed most of the authors books. I think I'm glad this series is finished or at least I hope it is.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Epilogue was my favorite.


    Could you see The Clockwork Princess being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    If it was made into a movie, I think it would end up a lot like the movie The Host that was recently released and based on the book. It reminded me of a Lifetime Movie from the Lifetime channel. Sappy and horribly made. I imagine the budget would be similar for this book. It would have no-name stars or ones from the Disney Channel. Just don't do it.

    "Maybe if I read this series first"

    Maybe if I would of read this series before the immortal insturments I might of enjoyed it alot more. It just did not engage me as the other series did. Lot less action in this series I think. This book felt drawn out like it wasnt going anywhere for the longest time then bam everything got wrapped up! I did love how she solved the love traiangle though, that was creative. The narrator did a good job...(why did we have to have different ppl read for each book in this series?) *pet peeve*
    I did have some AHH HA! moments where some ppl clicked in place in the other series for me and now I just cant wait for the next installment of the immortal insturments to come to see if WHO I think will be making a guest appereance does.
    All In all this book was just okay till the end and could of used some editting or weeding out of the filler nonsense that they put in just to make word count. But there is crucial info in this one that fills in some of the other series.
