When I say "six of one, half-dozen of the other", I mean both versions are mediocre, as far as narration goes. The story is worth it though, so if you haven't read or listened to City of Bones, go for it! It's worth the credit. If you're just looking for a different version with better narration, don't waste your credit.
While I was able to get through the first book in this series, the second failed to keep my interest. I am an avid YA fan even though I'm an adult and..Show More » some are better (Hunger Games, Delirium trilogy) than others. The constant life threatening situations the characters had to face got old after awhile and the lack of character development was disappointing. For teenagers, I think this series would be perfect - plenty of action. For adults, I think you'll be wanting more.
I have been waiting on pins and needles for the final installment on this series. And Cassandra Clare definitely delivers. She has so many plot twis..Show More »ts and shocks, that continues in this book. Action packed and brilliant. Definitely not a disappointment, I am just sorry this is the last one. I fell in love with her characters and wish to read more about them. She could definitely be ranked up there with JK Rowling on her brilliant ideas and shocking plot twists. I even bought the books on hardcover because I loved them so much!

I enjoyed the books by Cassandra Clair and I look forward to the next story, but the narrator must be changed. I do not enjoy listen to her, she does..Show More » not change the voices of the characters in the story. Because of this you often lose sight of which character is speaking. I do not know why Natalie Moore was taken off the series but she should be brought back, or at least someone else with better story telling skills.

Anything I write does not do justice to the months spent reading the world Cassandra has created through the inferno devices and Immortal instruments...Show More » I never knew what to expect when pressing the play button on Clockwork Angel and again for City of Bones. Completely blown away and pleasantly surprised each time. A huge bar has been set and it’ll be difficult to find a new series that can measure up. I’ll miss the Harendales, Lightwoods, Fairchilds, Simon and Magness plus the many who played a part in such an stunning read…, well definitely not Sebastian. That dude creeps me out and gave me nightmares. For every truly good comes the deeply evil. It’s kinda sad and bitter sweet to say goodbye. Goes to show how great of an author Cassandra is to create such characters yu come to love, hate and be irritated by. I laughed, cried, nearly punched the player and cheered over and over. Brilliant night time reading! Looking forwad to Emma’s story in the upcoming series The Dark Artifices. Yeah!!!
