Authors Who Contributed: So, after finishing reading this book, i recommend to readers to not underestimate this great book. A Mortal Instruments Reader as your reading list or you will be regret because you have not reading it yet in your live.
And she assumes that laughing at an enraged Forsaken monster is a good thing to get it to do something dumb… Small problem: These runes make them enraged because they hurt terribly; it drives them crazy and lets them attacking anything. How can you get something like that to do something stupid by laughing at it?
I personally think that Peterfreund sees more depth than there actually is. That Jace's laughs enrage all of his enemies time and again is rather a sign of Clare's bad writing skills, because at least some of them, especially demons like Abbadon seriously, that name?
But there is more, she basically excuses Jace's asshole attitude by making him a victim: First it was never stated how much Jace was mistreated. He was often neglected for sure, but in either case he had left his father when he was ten and since them had lived with the Lightwoods.
Now consider that most people don't remember anything consciously prior to their third year of life you can say that Jace lived 7 years with Valentine and 7 years with the Lightwoods. Blaming everything on Valentine is definitely not appropriate here. The Lightwoods are not perfect, but Peterfreund acts as though they had no influence on Jace in any case.
Also Jace never seemed to have had problems in flirting with other girls prior to Clary. So in what way did he never learn to flirt "properly? The way the Seelie Queen forces Jace to kiss Clary and the way Clare later lets her say that all Shadowhunters are siblings in her eyes so that she can say that the Queen didn't lie , rather speaks for the Seelie Queen to be a plot device than anything else the same with the Fearless rune, with it Jace never seems to have any trouble due to reckless behavior.
If she interprets stuff she should know what she is writing about. Apparently everything Jace does is humor to Peterfreund no matter what. And he is such a great guy in her eyes, never mind that if really everything he says when he is "snarky" is humor, that means he has no sense of appropriate and inappropriate and either has no empathy or downright doesn't care to act upon it. She really constantly emphazises how great Jace is. This is not an analyzes or an interpretation, it is a fan girl portraying her hero in the best possible way.
She doesn't even seem to realize how often she is wrong. Oh really? Which damage? Some talking? Shouldn't that not have been possible due to Jace's fearless rune? And either way Agramon got down way to easily for a Greater Demon, this made me for the first time question how these things are supposed to be dangerous. But Peterfreund doesn't see that as it seems. Really the main problem with this is chapter is that Peterfreund makes this stuff look way deeper than it actually is.
No idea why, I guess she simply ignored what did not fit her opinions, I think that way of handling it is called confirmation bias. Well that and that she is totally in love with Jace. Maybe this is the Jace he was always meant to be: Since when is arrogance something you love? Or is she supposing that Jace is not actually arrogant, that is it just a ruse or something? Then why act that way with your friends and loved ones? Peterfreund isn't able to analyze one bit as it seems: Lesson learned, folks: Sometimes your hilarious boyfriend would rather be unhappy and unpossessed than otherwise.
In fact, when she goes to apologize to him at the end of the book, I initially figured it would be for squealing to Sebastian, not because she later, completely justifiably, stabbed him with a sword soaked in heavenly fire.
Obviously the part where Clary is a total tattletale. Who learned a lesson here? Apparently not Clary and probably not the reader since Clary's behavior is regarded as totally justifiable and supposedly so is the fact that Jace simply gets over that betrayal. Fans seem to state that he simply loves Clary and that is why he forgives her.
Apparently Clary's betrayal is not worth mentioning.
And gosh just when I thought it couldn't get worse with Peterfreund she proves me wrong: Before that Lilith was "only" influencing him. It wasn't a possession.
Also apparently in Peterfreund's mind being arrogant and "annoyingly funny" what does that even mean? And apparently it is something good to have your boyfriend being controlled rather than free as long as what you "love" about him stays intact. I know no word to describe how wrong that is. And the end of this chapter trumps it all: What does she want to say with this? That it is good to be laughing all the time?
That jokes are always good? That making the end of the world into a joke is something good? I am out of words… well nearly out of words.
The end of the chapter says that Peterfreund is an author of adult and teen books. Doesn't look like it to me. That is all of the book I have read and I must say that was already enough. It was only the introduction and the first chapter and already there is so much to criticize, actually that is not all what I said here, but either way, this must be a record for me.
So I say: No more. View 2 comments. May 16, Eunice marked it as to-read. Like, are there going to be character relationship cross-overs? I may consider reading this if Jace and Alec get it on or something That would taint my mental picture of the rest of the series forever. Ugh, it's 2am.
I should not be on here writing crap at 2am. Do I even want to read this damn thing?!?!? Why is the taint of that book in everything I come across nowadays?!!?! And I haven't even read it yet! ARC provided by Netgalley. It just wasn't what I was expecting. I enjoyed a few of the contributions in the book, but for the most part it was just various authors giving their point of view on the series. This is why, despite the titles, Clary Fray's story isn't about the hidden cities of bones, of ashes, of glass.
Her story is about New York, and about a girl finding her place in it and learning to love and trust it again even though it has kept so much hidden from her. View all 7 comments. Dec 21, Melanie rated it did not like it Shelves: Naturally it started off with just the three ole' books; The City of Bones, Ashes and Glass then hang on! Doesn't seem enough? Let's opt in a prequel Clockwork Angel, Prince and so on. You know, we have a prequel, now we should have a sequel!
And here comes the new upcoming series. Hey, you know what's a good idea? Let's add some companion books!!!! I love them but this is dragging. For me this book was boring and just not readable. End of story. Sep 29, Amy rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would! I went into the book thinking it would be good and interesting but it was even better than I expected!
And it's really made me want to read the mortal instruments again now even more than before! Cada ensayo recopilado habla de un tema del universo de cazadores de sombras, tratando de desmenuzar la esencia del universo mismo. Un poco confuso pero te abre un poco a la duda que siempre surge cuando se lee un libro. Jun 24, Sannie Hald rated it it was amazing Shelves: Review of 'Shadowhunters and Downworlders: Y'all need to leave So take your disappointing comments elsewhere..
We do not want them here Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader is so much more than I expected it to be I love it when other people are so enthusiastic about another's work that they can create meaningful essays about it.
I love it when something non-fictional can come out of fiction. They opened my eyes, once again, for how brilliant the world that Cassie has created is. The first essay made me realise how important the word city actually is. Yes, it is mentioned in every title yet did I give it much thought other than they move around from city to city a bit? No, I did not And what a mistake that was!
I was too busy wondering about Magnus' past, the bad boy Jace and then the ultimate bad boy Jonathan The essay also hit close to home as I have recently move to the capital of my country, a fifth of the whole population lives here I'm from a "everyone knows everyone's business" kind of community and now I live among millions of others and I do not even know my own business as I'm a stranger to the city - I need to do what Clary did with her city.
The second essay made me realise why I love Clary as much as I do. She is a hero out of necessity and her deadliest weapon is her art! How cool is that?
You do not see that often huh? Consider this in another popular YA story.. If Clary had volunteered as tribute in the Hunger Games she would be one of the first to die, because in that dystopian universe her power is not heroic at all It is a disadvantage! Just like what Alec thinks of Clary when he first meets her Boy, did he eat his words or not!?
It turns out the most unlikely weapon of all in this world of Shadowhunters and Downworlders is the most powerful weapon! I would like to see Jace make the boat explode or making a portal or join the two races together with a swing of his sword Eh eh?
That's what I thought!
The third essay is like the second in the sense that Jace's most preferable weapon is his humour. The fourth essay draws parallels between the Clave and high school cheerleaders! The essay about Simon Lewis, as the Jewish vampire goes to show how much research and thought Cassie put into his character. Simon is on my top three of characters thus far, having all published books in mind 1: Jonathan "Sebastian", 2: Magnus Bane, and 3: Simon Lewis.. Simon deserves more credit and more interest that he is currently giving as he goes under such a development that it is remarkable he is still here..
Well, mehhh.. After two books I lost interest But Simon? Oh, Simon! I remember how I felt when I was done reading City of Bone.. I felt like Cassie had just stabbed me in my heart, then ripped it out just to stamp on it in front of me and finish off with spitting on it..
That's what I felt, and the essay "brotherly love" grabs the whole taboo of their, first forbidden, love As much as I adore Rachel Caine's way of writing and tattoos in general, I did not enjoy reading her essay as I did not know if she was making stuff up or not. In an essay you need references, and the other coauthors had those So I'm just It truly shows their friendship, and whilst reading it I felt like their friend too! This collection of essays doesn't reveal anything we do not know yet it makes us think about the stuff that we know in a way we might have overlooked.
I believe it is a must read for all real fans of Cassie's work Aug 28, Asmaa rated it it was amazing. Dec 03, Donna rated it it was ok Shelves: I did not finish this book. This book just really wasn't for me. Let's get one thing straight: I am not a fan of the series. I did read the first three books in The Mortal Instruments, and I enjoyed the third one mildly. You don't really have to be a fan of the series to read this book though. This book offers a lot of insight to the finer points of the series.
The articles were very detailed, but I didn't really enjoy reading them. They weren't very interesting to me at all. I think only someone who is very, very interested in digging deeper in TMI series should read this. A non fan, like me would not be interested in a book like this.
There was one contreversial article in this, and that was Kendare Blake's take on incest. For me, the romance did cross over the grossout line. Even if I didn't have a strong dislike for both Clary and Jace, I would still be grossed out.
After finding out that they were siblings, I didn't really want them to be together. Also, this book doesn't really have much to do with Cassandra Clare. It's mostly other authors talking about her book. The book is edited by her, and she provides a little paragraph on the start of each essay. Honestly, the notes in the start of each essay annoyed me.
This is just a group of authors discussing your book. So why do you just pop up randomly?
An actual appearance of the author in this book does not make me like it more or find it more appealing. A great in depth book for people who want to find out more about TMI, but not great for people who don't particulary care about the incest, why Simon never had a chance with Clary, the art used by Clary, and etc. I received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Cada escritor se centra en un tema concreto: Jan 20, Kirsty Amethyst Bookwyrm rated it it was ok Shelves: This and my other reviews can be found at http: When I requested this book I did not know it was a book of essays, I thought it was either an in-depth look at Shadowhunters and Downworlders by Clare similar to the Dark-Hunter companion by S This and my other reviews can be found at http: When I requested this book I did not know it was a book of essays, I thought it was either an in-depth look at Shadowhunters and Downworlders by Clare similar to the Dark-Hunter companion by Sherrilyn Kenyon or a book of short stories by famous authors set in the same world.
This is probably why I just could not get into this book at all. However, a few bits I did enjoy especially the introduction by Clare. The two essays I enjoyed the most was Simon Lewis: Jewish, Vampire, Hero and Why the best friend never gets the girl. This is really not my type of book but I would definitely recommend Cassandra Clare other books to people who like Young Adult Paranormal novels.
Dec 12, Amelie rated it really liked it. Rather, it is a great mashup of thoughtful essays by fellow authors and friends of Clare's about the universe of The Mortal Instruments. I have to say, these kinds of books, or reader, usually tend to fall in one of two categories: However, with this book, the different authors managed to touch lots of very specific and relev Disclaimer: However, with this book, the different authors managed to touch lots of very specific and relevant subjects while being able to catch the reader attention.
Yes, there is content, and most of it is very enlightening, but it is also very enternaining, which I honestly didn't expect. It is really great to see the characters you have grown to love being analysed by someone else, and from a whole new point of view.
After reading this, I feel compelled to read the series for the "I don't know which" time, to apply some of the analysis to my reading!
