What didn’t you like about Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ’s performance?
The narrators... why did they change them?
All the accents and characters sound like different people. And they’re different again, depending on whether Ed or Molly is doing the voice.
I hate the way the men sound in his voice, especially Luke. It puts a completely different picture in my mind of what he looks like.
She speaks almost in a monotone. You can’t tell who’s talking half the time. The Fairy Queen has lost her lovely accent completely. The males speak in the same high pitched voice as the females. She even read parts with only male characters for some reason.
Sigh. Narration really let down the story.
I love The Mortal Instruments and for the most part because of the complex relationships between the main characters. This is the 4th book in the saga and kind of starts of the second part of the story and maybe I wondered if it would captivate me as much as the first 3 books did.
Well I can say it does and I thoroughly enjoyed it, as with the other books I love Cassie's storyline and hope with all my heart if and when the film does come out it will do it justice, though as with most films of the book, they don't.
If you haven't read any of the Mortal Instruments get hold of City of Bones now, you won't regret it. It has it all, Demons and Angels, Vampires and Werewolves, Love and Romance. If you have read the first 3 books, City of Fallen Angels will leave you crying out for the as yet incomplete 5th book, City of Lost Souls.
Get into the Mortal Instruments now!

I love the books and the previous narrators haven't been so bad. But this is awful and really spoiled it for me. The voice of Simon is British and not a Brooklyn accent which doesn't make sense, I can just about put up with that but Clarys voice is the worst! Compared to the other narrated versions this Molly girl sounds so whiney and feeble. Does not match the character at all. I can't listen to anymore of this. Just purchased book No 5 to listen to so let's hope it's better.
Please can we have one set of narrators per series and not change them each book. It's very annoying and doesn't make the books flow.

I enjoyed the 4th book in the series although the story didn't feel as cohesive as the previous 3. I find the dual narrators distracting and when they changed over it took me it off the story. I also found some of the pronunciations irritating as they were different (Armitace and Stele the big two)

Having two voices was a perfect way to tell this story. The fourth book follows both Clary and Simon and to have the distinction in the story by having a female and male voice made it easy to follow. Loved it
