A brilliant story. This is worth the listen. Bod learns lessons throughout his life and he uses what he has learned against those who dislike him. Great result against the bullies.

Not a story like Anne Frank

This was a factual type of story. Yes it was true. But not as exciting as Anne Frank.

This story is exciting and made more so by the way the story gradually unfolds. The battle part was the best. I felt like I was there. Each part of the battle was carefully described. Brilliant.
I listened to the last 10 chapters in one evening.
I am sad it has finished. I will miss the characters.

Story is exciting

This is the 2nd book in this series and so much more exciting than the last book. The story continues with Cinder and then introduces Scarlet. The story gradually unfolds and you discover why these girls are connected. I need to read the next book to see what happens. This is a great read.

This second book in the series was as good as the first one. The robberies were so ingenious that I wonder if these were really carried out!! Lovely story about the older generation where I am in life right now. Loved that you are kept hanging on a thread to see if they get away with it all.

Very enjoyable

The escapades are very funny. The story unfolds gradually and then you are sucked in till the end. I read this because of the previous reviews and thoroughly enjoyed it. Not just a group of old 'fuddy duddies'.

Great book

Would you listen to City of Fallen Angels again? Why?

The story line continued with what happens in the love lives of all the characters.The story was so exciting. I felt like I was watching a film A great end to the series

What other book might you compare City of Fallen Angels to, and why?

I have not read a series this exciting, where I felt I had to read the next book.

What does Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Did not like the narration at all. I had got used to the narrator of the previous 3 books. Why did you change? And why 2. Both were poor readers. I nearly bought the book to read myself.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I could not leave it down. The pace of the story increased in the last few chapters. Great read

Any additional comments?

As I listened to the previous 3 books I knew the characters and felt comfortable with the story line. This book was so poorly read, I only stuck with it so I could discover the ending. These books were well written. I was completely drawn into the world of Shadowhunters, Downworlders and Demons. A great ending!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Would recommend this group of books. This 3rd book, City of Glass really gets your mind racing. I could not leave this book down. An exciting finish.

What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Glass?

When Jace and Clary finally discover what the different characters were trying to tell them, throughout the story.
( I don't want to spoil this for a new reader)

What about Natalie Moore’s performance did you like?

Her voice was strange at first, but you get used it.
I have started the next book and she is not reading it.
I miss her voice

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I loved this book.
I feel in tune with the characters, completely.
The story was very well told.

Any additional comments?

When can I get the film in the UK.
