City of Bones

City of BonesWhen 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 IMPORTANT EDIT 1 14 18 Fam, I wrote this review in 2011 All of y all commenting in 2018 need to get over it I ve moved to a different account I ve moved past Cassandra Clare and while I maintain that this book is a blatant rip off of about 1000 other books and while a lot of you insist that she s an original author, like it or not, she does have a history with plagiarism bad behavior , I haven t read any of her new stuff so I can t tell you if she s continued to toe the line with plagiarism or write poorly In fact, I can tell you that a lot of people whose opinions I trust say that she s become a much better, original writer I ve even considered reading some of her newer books If you enjoy her writing, good for you If these books she s written are important to you, I m happy for you My opinions are my opinions, you don t have to share them What s really gross is the amount of bullying and personal attacks that are going on in these comments and in messages I ve received While I do regret some of the harshness of the original view, attacking me or anyone else in the comments on either side of the fence is gross I ve received abu
15 year old Clary witnesses a crime at a trendy New York night club Interesting thing, nobody but Clary can see both the victim and perpetrators As it turns out, there is an entire invisible to regular people world, and Clary is an unwitting important part of it City of Bones is one of those books that all my female friends and fellow readers simply love, Jace mania all around Needless to say, I had to jump on the bandwagon eventually and get me some Jace Who am I to deny myself a pleasure to fall for a fictional hot, sarcastic and brooding guy Imagine my disappointment, when I found out that this book was one big pile of hot mess Sorry ladies, I said it, it s bad.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 I don t really think this book was edited at all, actually Errors were endless and visible to even my untrained eye wrong words noise instead on nose missing words in sentences strange mix of POVs the book is mostly told in 3rd person, from Clary s POV, but occasionally I saw both 3rd and 1st person narration in the same paragraph describing the same events, then there was a page from Jace s POV and a chapter from Luke s Clary s father was called Jonathan in the beginning of th
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 particularly craptastic job.To be fair to Ms Graynor, she didn t have much to work with I tuned her out, I swear, I was focusing on the actual prose, taking in the story, trying to get interested But the writing was terrible It was painful The characters were annoying.Now, I ve been fair to Ms Clare and I ve been fair to Mr Graynor So there s only you left to be fair to now.And in order to do that, I have to admit that I wasn t EXPECT
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 th
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 hair then read this but moving on I m a sucker for action sequences so this totally delivered on that front The author s take on werewolves was original, and I gotta say they give the vampires a run for their money I actually guessed most of the twists but that s some of the fun Finding the hints and feeling the satisfaction of
we been knew 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.And Simon..I mean, he has friendzone written all over him 12 Jan 13 I know this is now being made into a film, and I know they ve all got the cast sorted out, but I imagined them very differently So here s how they all played out in my head Simon Aaron Taylor JohnsonFor some reason, I always imagined Simon as young Eisenheim And a part of me wants to kick myself for associating the 2006 film with this book in any way.Alec Ezra MillerAnd no, it s not because he s queer.Isabelle Jessica SzohrBecause I wanted to put this picture in here, kay Jace Draco Mal
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 cou
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 stories of Vampires and Warewolves are truth than fiction She is attracted to Jace the most accomplished of this group of hunters Much to the chagrin of her best friend Simon, and Jaces hunter brother Alex.She learns years ago a charasamitic, powerful, and high ranking Shadow Hunter, called Valentine created his own circle to cleanse the world of
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 and three basically emotionally killed me inside But this was not fun for me Okay, so first of all, because we ve all talked about this, The Mortal Instruments is kind of based off Cassandra Clare s Harry Potter fanfiction no, I m not kidding , and it is painfully obvious There are basic things, like that humans are known as mundanes, while in
