    Story
    "A man in love......maybe"
    Would you consider the audio edition of What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And You're Not Officially Dating Anyway) to be better than the print version?

    I think any audio version is better then the print version. I feel more into the story with the audio version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Magnus. How could it not be. But the demon was pretty funny.


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

    I don't get the story behind the characters when I read a book. I mean the feeling in the voices like when I hear the audio book.

    Story
    "Best narration of The Bane Chronicles so far!"
    Where does What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And You're Not Officially Dating Anyway) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top of the list!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And You're Not Officially Dating Anyway)?

    Learning more of Magnus's inner thoughts at a time when he wasn't being so snarky.


    What about Jordan Gavaris’s performance did you like?

    Everything- it was the best narration of the Bane Chronicles series. And I was pleasantly surprised to realize that he's Felix from BBC's "Orphan Black" series!


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

    Yes- I wish it was longer; I love The Bane Chronicles.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope someone hires Jordan to do more audiobooks.

    Story
    "Cool and sweet"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No. This book is perfect.The authors were able to write about the beginning of the relationship of Alex and Magnus in a very subtle way. I dadorei


    What other book might you compare What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And You're Not Officially Dating Anyway) to and why?

    I think the first book "The Bane Chronicles" is a good example, because on the both books Cassandra Clare and her parther were able to make a connection between the Magnus Bane past, and events of the other two series.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing. Everthing is very good.


    Could you see What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And You're Not Officially Dating Anyway) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I don't think so, because I see this series only just a complement for the other two series of Cassandra.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm enjoying reading this series, because the authors are managing to make a link between all the books ever published.
    The stories are funny, exciting and with a lot adventure. The facts are described subtle way, if you have not yet read one of the series, you do not get lost. Who knows other books are able to recognize the references,and who didn't read can understand too.
    In this book, in particular, I liked how Magnus' feelings are described. This all without miss a dose of humor, so striking feature of this character

    "Last book"

    It was as expected very good. But I will say it did lack substance, it was a bit of romantic fluff for Alex and Magus. So don't expect anything amazing from it, it is a light,simple just there to entertain story.
