È City of Bones ì Download by ñ Cassandra Clare I was never expecting anything from this but an entertaining and maybe a little bit forgettable book I was wrong I found this completely unforgettable For being a trainwreck.
To be quite honest, I think 75% of the hype for this series comes from nostalgia Listen, I m sorry, I know this isn t everything, but I really don t get why these first three books are hyped, on any level Not only do I have ten million problems with the tropey nature and the slutshaming and the etc etc etc, it s also just boring and also, I hate every single character I hated almost everything about this, until book three, which I thought was okay because it didn t take me four months you think I m kidding and also for ending the incest plotline Yeah, that Listen, I am not opposed to fun trash I read The Infernal Devices this year and it was fantastic, and books two Wow I was reading some reviews on this and people either hate or love it I am not ashamed to say I belong to the latter Lots of opinions means there is lots of things to sayOk so I was practically splitting my head open thinking of what exactly I wanted to say about this book In the end I just decided to go with what comes to mind So here it goesClare does a superb job of drawing you in Maybe the plot isn t completely unique but the world she created is I kept telling myself this is sooooooooooo interesting The whole shadowhunter thing oozes with coolness I mean half angel, half kick butt people It doesn t get much cooler than that The story is full of action and yes sometimes there are things added for dramatic effect, but isn t that the point If you were looking for something slow paced read The Mill on the Floss personally I d rather pull Warning won t contain spoilers cause I didn t get far enough to give a fuck and discover anything worth spoiling Okay, so let me get this out straight I have never NOT finished a book before Okay, I m lying The History of Sexuality Volume 1 by Michel Foucault remains unfinished as does Villette by Charlotte Bronte Why Because they were boring.
Because, as I read them, I wanted to take a cheese grater to my skull and rub vigorously just to have something to do But I have never NOT finished a Young Adult paranormal novel before And I ve read some BAAAAAD books But I didn t finish this book because it goes beyond bad It makes the History of Sexuality seem amazingly interesting and colourful.
To be fair to Ms Clare, I was not actually reading her novel so much as listening to the Audiobook The Narrator, Graynor, did a particula Okay, so I m far behind the curve on reading this, but I very much enjoyed my introduction to the world of nephilim, Shadowhunters and demons Clare constructed a vivid, believable parallel world with great characters, punchy dialogue, and a winning mix of humor, pathos and action I like her take on warlocks, vampires, and werewolves, and of course I m a big fan or urban fantasy, where these fantastic elements mix into the regular gritty city life of New York Clary Fray is a sympathetic protagonist, though I was equally drawn to the supporting cast I especially like that the villains are believably three dimensional Even when you do not support them, you understand what motivates them There is no easy black and white, good and evil dichotomy I ll be int 19 Apr 16 Bet you re sick of my updates, now.
Just for reference, on the recent Sherrilyn Kenyon v Cassandra Clare.
Kenyon has filed a lawsuit against Clare, and also provides a list of alleged similarities between Clare s work to her own.
Read and decide for yourself 15 Jun 13 update again Saw some stills for the movie, and to be honest, despite being slightly spurious in my casting of City of Bones, I actually think my version is much better than the movie version.
I mean, look at Isabelle, and look at Clary.
Correct me if I m wrong, but Isabelle is supposed to be way hotter than Clary.
And don t even get me started on Jace.
I mean, Jamie Campbell Bower was cute in a couple of his other films, but Jace was supposed to be I dunno swoon on your feet panty wetting hawwwt.
I mean, he has friendzone written all over him
we been knew I was instantly enchanted when I first read City of Bones, and that enchantment still holds four years, and at least half a dozen re reads later in sptite of the fact that I m older, wiser, and should know better I ve also read countless reviews, both adoring and loathing and have come to the conclusion that this book does not garner any type of middle ground, you either love it or you hate it I m glad that I get to love it What else can I say image error A great and interesting books I manages to combine the infulences from many of top fictional series of our time It combines hidden magic world of Harry Potter, the teenage drama of Buffy, and a couple of themes from Star Wars as well The book is very well written and fast paces.
We follow Clary Fray, a 15 year old misfit trying to find heself, not quite sure if she is goth, cyberpunk, or just a temperamental teenaged artist One night in the local club, Pandemonium, she realises she is a witness to an attack, the strange thing is that the victim of the attack disappeared right before her eyes, and when security arrives, despite the attackers standing right in front of them, she is the only one who can see them.
Clary descovers she is part of the world of Shadow Hunters and demons Shadow Hunters are demon slayers She learns sto
I had the hardest time sticking to the story and for quite some time I couldn t figure out why Then gradually I realized that there were several reasons.
Let me start with the editing When Fifteen Year Old Clary Fray Heads Out To The Pandemonium Club In New York City, She Hardly Expects To Witness A Murder Much Less A Murder Committed By Three Teenagers Covered With Strange Tattoos And Brandishing Bizarre Weapons Then The Body Disappears Into Thin Air It S Hard To Call The Police When The Murderers Are Invisible To Everyone Else And When There Is Nothing Not Even A Smear Of Blood To Show That A Boy Has Died Or Was He A Boy This Is Clary S First Meeting With The Shadowhunters, Warriors Dedicated To Ridding The Earth Of Demons It S Also Her First Encounter With Jace, A Shadowhunter Who Looks A Little Like An Angel And Acts A Lot Like A Jerk Within Twenty Four Hours Clary Is Pulled Into Jace S World With A Vengeance When Her Mother Disappears And Clary Herself Is Attacked By A Demon But Why Would Demons Be Interested In Ordinary Mundanes Like Clary And Her Mother And How Did Clary Suddenly Get The Sight The Shadowhunters Would Like To Know
