The story is so amazing but it has been horrendously ruined by disgusting narration. They overact everything. The woman has a boring voice to listen to but additionally you can hear the static noise in the background. Also the man... seriously? it is revolting to listen to someone swallow their saliva... I almost couldn't finish listening to the story and I grit my teeth while trying to hold back the bile.
I do not know how Cassandra manages to maintain the suspense through 5 books but she does it and more. She continues to build her characters who evolve and grow in complexity, inhabiting a world that is alive and vibrant and a little weird. Onward to book 6!
What did you like best about City of Lost Souls: Mortal Instruments, Book 5? What did you like least?
Unfortunately I couldn't get more than twenty minutes in. Nothing to do with the writing, I wouldn't have got this far into the series if I didn't enjoy it, but the narrator is so painful to listen to, I'm going to have to wait until a better reading is found.
What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Lost Souls: Mortal Instruments, Book 5?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Grant was fine, though I preferred the gentleman from the previous book. Eloise on the other hand... Slow speaking, painfully slow. Dreary, stressing words seems more important than the story. The voice was so monotonous, I couldn't follow the story. She seems to breath words to attempt to make it more mysterious where it is just plain irritating. The last word in every sentence is breathed long, frankly weird.
Was City of Lost Souls: Mortal Instruments, Book 5 worth the listening time?
I may keep trying as I want to hear the book, but I certainly will avoid the narrator in future books.

The whole series is amazing and the story has moved on however some of the clary and jace scenes are very tedious and quite boring in parts
Am looking forward to the next part :)

I love the story but the pronunciation was really frustrating and inconsistant with previous books
Loved all the books so far. Hope the last one is a great finale! Some areas of the story dragged on a little, but that's normal in books!
Not a fan of Eloises narrating, she's got a lovely voice but was a bit slow and drab.
