City of Bones

City of Bones Review Ç eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB 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 ar. 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 badI had the hardest time sticking to the story and for uite some time I couldn t figure out why Then gradually I realized that there were several reasonsLet 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 the book but John in the end I can go on but these were the things that I would normally overlook if the story itself was good Unfortunately it wasn t and the errors stood outI didn t think that the story was cohesive it just didn t uite flow for me It read as of a series of events rather than a novel I thought there were some parts in the book that served no other purpose but to give our hero an opportunity to act knight like I am talking about the entire rat Simonvampires extravaganza This story line could have been edited out completely without any damage to the narrative IMO I couldn t uite relate to any of the characters either What made my friends sigh with adoration annoyed me I hated the sarcasm mainly because the jokes although funny felt often out of place plus all of the characters attempting to joke sounded exactly the same to me I didn t feel the difference in attitudes of Clary Simon and Jace If Clare had to make Jace a witty sarcastic type she should have made the wisecracks his exclusive trademark not everybody sThe story itself was so ridiculously predictable I do not normally see what is to come in the books but in COB I saw every revelation coming Clare just doesn t have a skill to lead to them subtly it s always in your face Valentine is alive revelation who in this book who was thought to be dead was actually dead a serious uestion your mother put a spell on you revelation the big fatherbrother revelation I could see them all and I am not the most astute reader out thereNow my biggest problem with this book I ve readseen it all before Clare borrows so liberally from Star Wars Harry Potter and Buffy it is simply impossible to overlook Valentine VoldemortDarth Vader combo JaceClary LukeDracoLeiaGinny if it is possible combo the Circle reversed Order of the PhoenixDeath Eaters combo the Clave Ministry of Magic Luke LupinSnape combo Hodge GilesWormtail combo I can continue but will stop here you get the picture Granted there is nothing absolutely original in paranormal genre but a skillful writer can re work an old theme and make it new fresh and uniue Whatever is original in COB is not uite thought through As an example let s take a stele After finishing this book I still have no idea what exactly it does do you only write runes with it how exactly do you use it in a battle why it can open some doors and not others it can heal but not everything it can make you be able to see through a wooden screen but is it because you write a special rune with it or you use it as a wand It seems to me stele is pretty much used as a deus ex machina convenient whenever a uick solution to a problem needed And what s with all the shadow folk There is just so much mashed up together fairies vampires werewolves pixies jinns You name any mythical creature it is in this book And what about magic I read about spells made by a warlock stele rune tricks curses where does it end The limits of magic possibilities were never defined Bottom line all these inconsistencies make for one unoriginal and messy imaginary world And this probably was the main reason why I couldn t connect with this book Finally I was a little surprised by some of Clare s creative choices I found both flirtations of at least 35 year old warlock he might be older his age was never mentioned with a gay teenage boy and reversed LeiaLuke extravaganza uite tacky if not disturbing Although I know how JaceClary family matter is resolved in the end I don t find possibly incestuous relationships appealingThis review might make it seem like COB is the worst book ever written I wouldn t say so after all I ve read Breaking Dawn and that book doesn t have any plot There were some nice JaceClary moments the greenhouse birthday party comes to mind But was COB the most blatantly unoriginal book I ve ever read Absolutely although I haven t read Eragon yet but I heard a lot about itIn all honesty I shouldn t give this book than 1 star but I will add a second one as a dedication to one Mrs Jace Wayland Would I recommend this book Sure many of my friends enjoyed it immensely Will I continue on with the series I don t think I will be able to convince myself to waste any of my time on being mad at a book I think I will just check out plot summaries on wiki and be done with the seriesPS I just read that Cassandara Clare is an avid and famous in certain circles fanfiction writer I guess that s where all

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 kno. 19 Apr 16 Bet you re sick of my updates nowJust for reference on the recent Sherrilyn Kenyon v Cassandra ClareKenyon has filed a lawsuit against Clare and also provides a list of alleged similarities between Clare s work to her ownRead 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 versionI mean look at Isabelle and look at ClaryCorrect me if I m wrong but Isabelle is supposed to be way hotter than ClaryAnd don t even get me started on JaceI 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 hawwwtAnd SimonI 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 headSimon 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 wayAlec Ezra MillerAnd no it s not because he s ueerIsabelle Jessica SzohrBecause I wanted to put this picture in here kayJace Draco MalfoyI mean come on Is there even a debate on thisClary Kristen StewartOnly because her acting skills match the uality of Clary s personality 11 Aug 12 Also known as Why Readers CAN Review An Author As Well As HisHer Book And Why STGRB Are Full of Shit And Obviously Never Took English Lit Classes For Telling Us We re Not Allowed ToI heard about the whole plagiarism issue long before I even heard of Cassandra Clare s books so I tried getting into it as objective as possible given the circumstances All I know is that she pretty much copy pasted whole wads of text from another FF writer from published books from TV dialogue into her Draco Dormiens trilogy without providing any credit to the original authorsI also know that she lifted wads of text from Draco Dormiens into her published Mortal Instruments What remains a mystery though is whether these bits copied into The Mortal Instruments were her own original pieces of writing or some of them even plagiarized workI won t go much into the whole plagiarism thing since if indeed any plagiarized work exists in The Mortal Instruments that is pretty much speculationHowever it does bring to mind uestions of ethic should a plagiarist be published Some people strongly believe in giving second chances I think people only deserve second chances when they admit to their errors and have truly proven their repentance Both cases which I have not as of yet heard Cassandra Clare doOther uestions popping into my head include shouldn t there be some sort of punishment for plagiarists I mean if I did in university what Cassandra Clare did in Draco Dormiens and arguably The Mortal Instruments then I would ve been kicked out on the curb and my pretty Master s degree ripped to shreds And similar to the whole Chris Brown debacle instead of condemning her far below ethical work habits we the consumers commend their artwork as if sending the message that whatever wrongs they have done it doesn t matter because people still eat their shit up There is no learning curve here or at least no deterrence factorBut anyway I tried to suppress these nagging uestions while I read the book because I wanted to know if I would truly objectively enjoy City of Bones Especially after the whole GR Bullies absurdity where an increasing number of voices proclaim that Reviews Should Be About Books And Completely Separate From The AuthorWell ladies and gentlemen my experience reading City of Bones will provide evidence alongside many other ample evidence out there that no sometimes we as readers cannot keep the two things separate Sometimes our moral and ethic code just won t let us Reading is after all a subjective experience and all sorts of things influence our enjoyment of it including our perception of the author And if that affects our enjoyment of a book then it damn well does belong in a review if we choose to put it thereSo Anyway Now that I m off my soapbox The biggest thing that stands out while I read City of Bones was how inconsistent the writing was It was so lazy and repetitive information was handed over to us on a silver platter there was no subtlety or any depth going on But then there would be brief short scenes or dialogues that actually made me laugh out Those few and interspersed scenes surprised me like one wet and icky autumn day when I found a five dollar bill while raking up my neighbour s filthy gardenTry as I might to ignore it I was at a dilemma Should I enjoy this I mean it s only five dollars Surely they couldn t miss it And I mean I m working my arse off in this horrible weather because my mother owes them a lawnmower And anyway it might not even be theirs to begin withIn the end I took the money come on you would ve too but I just didn t enjoy it as much as I would have And the delight I should have felt at finding money just wasn t thereThese funny bits of dialogues and scenes filled me with just as much inner turmoil as my five dollar note dilemma and even though I know that maybe perhaps it could be that these are all Cassandra Clare s own words I still couldn t shake off the icky suspicions out off my gut did she draw inspiration from some other unknown source hereIn the end it just ravaged me with too much guilt and suspicions that what originally would have been a five star scene was reduced down to three stars and a really really sad faceAlso a part of the inconsistent writing was the inconsistent narration I know 3rd person omniscient gives the narrator the power to sift through characters thoughts and emotions as they please but this is what made the narrative sound forced and contrived We would normally follow Clary as the novel progresses until it is convenient for us to see things from another character s perspective in which case off we ll jump into another person s headThese conveniences are just one example of what I mean when I say that the narrative lacked subtlety When we aren t directly being fed a certain character s thoughts and emotions through hisher own point of view we are blatantly told their feelings by the character themselves Rarely are people in real life so honest and self aware as the characters in City of BonesAn asshat Jace looked as if he were about to laughWhat you said to Simon I was trying to save him some pain Isabelle will cut out his heart and walk all over it in high heeled boots That s what she does to boys like that You want to know what it s like when your parents are good church going folk and you happen to be born with the devil s mark He pointed at his eyes fingers splayed When your father flinches at the sight of you and your mother hangs herself in the barn driven mad by what she s done When I was ten my father tried to drown me in the creek I lashed out at him with everything I had burned him with everything I had burned him where he stood I didn t think you liked me all that muchIsabelle s brightness faded and she looked down at her silvery toes I didn t think I did either she admitted But when I went to look for and Jace and you were gone Her voice trailed off I wasn t just worried about him I was worried about you too There s something so reassuring about you And Jace is so much better when you re aroundThe point I m trying to make here is that we get to know the characters because other characters are constantly telling us about them instead of us making our own informed opinions of them based on their actions and words This is why I say the writing was lazy and lacked depth And how Cassandra Clare tried to show us that her characters have background and troubles and are oh such damaged goods was or less through self testimonials such as the second uote up above where Magnus Bane so conveniently gave away his entire childhood to three random teenagers The chapter The Werewolf s Tale was another one of these self testimonials for another partially important character This is a whole new level of telling instead of showing Where unimaginative writers just unload all these information through descriptive prose Cassandra Clare was at least creative enough to hide it into her dialogue But the same underlying problem is still there we see none of this damaged goods I didn t need Sweeney Todd to tell me his past to know that he was a damaged troubled man His actions spoke it for meAs for information being handed to us on a silver platter all you need to do is take a look at the entire ending scene with Valentine to see my point The whole chapter was an infodump session Rarely do I read villains who are so eager to reveal their past and provide explanations to their potential victims The Harry Potter novels were slightly guilty of this especially in the earlier books but I believe a lot of other things about the books redeemed itself from this one faultJace was also a bit of an infodumper but I don t take away points for this I mean I get it it s hard to get on without one character at least explaining what the blazes was going onSpeaking of characters this is rather tough Many reviewers despised Jace because he was such an asshole Clary herself accuses Jace of being an asshole plenty of times But I ve lived a fair amount of years and I was friendly with uite a few assholes during my own teenage years And let me tell you one thing Jace is no asshole He s a guy with daddy issues trying to act tough And that is as deep as any of the characters get I guess he would be my favourite character out of the whole lot not my favourite character as in the one I liked the most but the character whom in my opinion was the most developed without self testimonials or other characters telling us about himBut remember my five dollar note dilemma Yeah Jace was without a doubt a direct cut and paste of the Draco from Clare s Draco Dormiens trilogy who by default is a creation of JK Rowling s So forgive me if I can t separate the book from the author because frankly If I enjoyed this book simply because of Jace that doesn t say much about the rest of the book or the uality of writing because Jace is not even Clare s original characterFurther illustrating the inconsistencies of Clare s writing though was the sudden and drastic change in Jace s character during the scene with Valentine There is no way one person in such a short amount of time could thoroughly convince and change Jace into such an obedient passive receptive character No matter who the person claimed he was or what evidence he brings to the table Even if Jace believed in everything Valentine told him there is no way it would have drastically changed him in such a manner and such a short timeJust as unlikely was the way Jace was ready to walk the ends of the world with Valentine build a new life with him and in the next moment after a few words from Clary was ready to throw that all away once again The double inconsistencies astound me Clare simply does not understand human psychology or even human nature enough to make solid charactersThe other characters were forgettable to say the least They all sounded the same I m afraid Witty dry sort of humour It gets tiring after a while Also the Magnus and Alec thing Can I just say ew Magnus is like what Forty And Alec is sixteenEven Valentine the Villain was not much of a villain He didn t frighten me or even daunt me I kept reading how Clary was disgusted at how manipulative he was during his scenes but reading the pages myself reading his words his actions He wasn t particular conniving or ingenious really it was just that Jace was so ready to have a family back he was willing to lap up every bit of contradicting information he heardPlot progression and twists were unsurprising Uninspired No wait they were inspired By Star Wars and Harry Potter to name a few Perhaps even a bit of Buffy in thereAnd this is where my final dilemma lies To like or not to like That is the uestionFor light fluff it has entertainment value enough But what little entertainment value there was was lifted off other better pieces of work out there To say that I did not enjoy City of Bones would be a lie but the uestion is did I enjoy City of Bones or did I enjoy the bits of Harry Potter and Star Wars in City of BonesI ll let you decide if it s fine to like a book filled with other writers characters other authors plot twists other screenwriters dialogue Perhaps I m being too uptight but here s how I see it New York with Potterverse and Star Wars Take that away and what are you Zulus is pulled Weitergehen Gedichte into Jace's world with a vengeance when her mother disappears and Clary herself Not the Dukes Darling Greycourt #1 is attacked by a demon But why would

note dilemma Yeah Jace was without a doubt a direct cut and paste of the Draco from Clare s Draco Dormiens trilogy who by default Witches' Children is a creation of JK Rowling s So forgive me The Havana Room if I can t separate the book from the author because frankly If I enjoyed this book simply because of Jace that doesn t say much about the rest of the book or the uality of writing because Jace Animal Land Creatures of Children's Fiction is not even Clare s original characterFurther The Last Block In Harlem illustrating the Diary of a Steak New Writing inconsistencies of Clare s writing though was the sudden and drastic change Los Dragones de Durn Saga, Trilogía Completa: Los Dragones de Durn, El Retorno de los Jinetes de Dragón, El Emperador Inmortal (Dragones de Durn Saga Trilogías nº 1) in Jace s character during the scene with Valentine There Gideon Finding Home #3 is no way one person Galactic Treasure The uads of Galafrax #2 in such a short amount of time could thoroughly convince and change Jace Buttmen 2 into such an obedient passive receptive character No matter who the person claimed he was or what evidence he brings to the table Even Shards of Time if Jace believed Harry Potter and the Psychic Serpent in everything Valentine told him there Brooklyn Vintage Ads Vol 6 is no way Sistah Vegan Food Identity Health and Society Black Female Vegans Speak it would have drastically changed him Gails Family Icehome #4 inconsistencies astound me Clare simply does not understand human psychology or even human nature enough to make solid charactersThe other characters were forgettable to say the least They all sounded the same I m afraid Witty dry sort of humour It gets tiring after a while Also the Magnus and Alec thing Can I just say ew Magnus Inward is sixteenEven Valentine the Villain was not much of a villain He didn t frighten me or even daunt me I kept reading how Clary was disgusted at how manipulative he was during his scenes but reading the pages myself reading his words his actions He wasn t particular conniving or HASTA NUNCA, EYACULACIÓN PRECOZ: Compendio científico, directo y sin rodeos hacia la solución definitiva ingenious really Fotos de sexo cuerpos desnudos: fotos de sexo, cuerpos mujer desnuda, milf, sexo madura, chicas eróticas (Spanish Edition) it was just that Jace was so ready to have a family back he was willing to lap up every bit of contradicting Expediente H.A.D.E.S.: (Conspiración y poder) information he heardPlot progression and twists were unsurprising Uninspired No wait they were ¡Tómate un
