What disappointed you about City of Heavenly Fire?

A drab story line that seemed like repetition and fluff in order to rush the book out to make a few more bucks. Could have skipped more than halfway through the book, and still had the same feeling at the end.

What could Cassandra Clare have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Taken her time and put more thought into the plot. Stopped at book 5.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was awful. I have listened to all of the previous books this was by far the worst. Boring, mundane, (lol) emotionless. I would fire the male narrator. Also the English accent of the female narrator...what was up with that. I get it for the Infernal devices, but this it definitely took away from this reading.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment in the author and the audio book,

Any additional comments?

It this tells you anything I quit listening to the audio book after I paid for it, and read the eBook on my wife's kindle. I love audio books, and this is the first time I have ever stopped listening because of the narrator.
