Makin do The Falling of Love (Falling, Setalux The Continental Monthly The Globe By the Way Book
Ur 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 ashed out at him with everything I had burned him with everything I had burned him where he stood I didn t think you Cinderella for a Night (36 Hours, liked me all that muchIsabelle s brightness faded and sheooked down at her silvery toes I didn t think I did either she admitted But when I went to Friend Foe 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 wasazy and The Longevity Diet lacked depth And how Cassandra Clare tried to show us that her characters have background and troubles and are oh such damaged goods was oress 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 Grassroots Innovation level of telling instead of showing Where unimaginative writers just unload all these information through descriptive prose Cassandra Clare was ateast 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 ook 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 ot 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 Architecture and Utopia 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 veived a fair amount of years and I was friendly with uite a few assholes during my own teenage years And Perfect Cities 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 wholeot not my favourite character as in the one I iked 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 evidence he brings to the table Even if Jace believed in everything Valentine told him there 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 ife 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 east 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 ike 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 Special Topics in Calamity Physics 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 dilemmaies To Seven More Languages in Seven Weeks like or not toike That is the uestionFor Scenes from a Revolution light fluff it has entertainment value enough But whatittle entertainment value there was was ifted off other better pieces of work out there To say that I did not enjoy City of Bones would be a ie 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 Microsoft Visual C llet you decide if it s fine to Soulprint 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 I was never expecting anything from this but an entertaining and maybe aittle bit forgettable book I was wrong I found this completely unforgettable For being a trainwreckTo be uite honest I think 75% of the hype for this series comes from nostalgia Listen I m sorry I know this isn t everything but I really don t get why these first three books are hyped on any Blah Blah Black Sheep level Not only do I have ten million problems with the tropey nature and the slutshaming and the etc etc etc it s also just boring and also I hate every single character I hated almost everything about this until book three which I thought was okay because it didn t take me four months you think I m kidding and also for ending the incest plotline Yeah thatListen I am not opposed to fun trash I read The Infernal Devices this year and it was fantastic and books two and three basically emotionally killed me inside But this was not fun for me Okay so first of all because we ve all talked about this The Mortal Instruments is kind of based off Cassandra Clare s Harry Potter fanfiction no I m not kidding and it is painfully obvious There are basic thingsike that humans are known as mundanes while in Harry Potter they are known as muggles But then there s also the fact that the
characters kind of 
kind of ike not good fanfiction interpretations of various Harry Potter characters Our redheaded #lead character Clary Fray is a slightly stupider version of Ginny Weasley Her # character Clary Fray is a slightly stupider version of Ginny Weasley Her interest Jace Wayland is essentially Draco Malfoy if everyone excused his actions because he s super hot I really don t ike Jace Jace becomes a member of the Ripoff Death Eaters in Surrender like book two because his father is Ripoff Voldemort his name is Valentine which is actually hilarious Simon is Harry again not a very good one and Isabelle is Hermione if Hermione were there exclusively to be slut shamed by the angelic virgin protagonist I mostly said this to point out how utterly fucking dull these characters are butisten I m not actually wrong about this If you match the characters up to her fanfiction which is not hard the pairings fit You know that thing I The Highlanders Touch (Highlander, linked up above Well it discusses how the fanfiction trilogy I mean kudos for that dedication is endgame DracoGinny and HarryHermione with subtext between HarryDraco I m so sorry I maughing typing this The endgame of this series is JaceClary and SimonIsabelle with subtext between JaceSimon Do you think I m kidding But O Regresso da Atlântida - Os guerreiros de Posídon listen you d think that after ripping from fucking Harry Potter Clare would ve ateast come up with something interesting I mean fiction doesn t have to be original to be good But again it s basically boring boring boring offensive boring jace is hot chapter boring I don t even know where I m going with this I just need you all to know that this originated as Harry Potter fanfiction Although I will point out that the original fanfiction this was based off of got taken off fanfictionnet after plagiarism accusations And then there were Sherrilyn Kenyon s plagiarism accusations I mean I think fanfiction and original fiction used to be considered very different things in a way they almost aren t today but it s important to knowAnyway I ve established at this point that the characters are flat it s all painfully derivative and the books themselves are boring But there is so much Beyond the issue of Clary s I m not Gdy mrok zapada (William Wisting, like other girls thing there s also the issue of messily handledgbt stuff So yes it s 2005 and I m willing to excuse this a The Scarlet Ruse (Travis McGee little bit Alec Lightwood s entire presence in this book is to Create Some Angst through homophobia and it feels so muchike a plot device not going to The White Road lie While it s fair to mention that Cassandra Clare has improved hergbt rep severalsapphic friends of mine would Bridges of Madison County like to notify you that The Dark Artifices is awesome wrt this it s not good in this series Alec is barely a POV character in the first three books of the series despite being marketed as a major character and feels super tokenistic Also just his treatment At one point in this series his mother who is a supposedlyikeable character tries to kill him and his boyfriend for being gay which he forgives her for how There is Mind Wide Open later on aot of explicit biphobia towards Magnus who is my favorite I Dominant FUTA Collection love Magnus that is not subverted or criticized at all and in this book especially there s an intonation of that slutty bi trope though the character is allowed to develop beyond that man it is there You re not gay are youSimon s greenish color deepened If I were I would dress better this is not funnyNo Cassandra Clare would rather focus on something else a sideplot where Ripoff Ginny Weasley believes Hot Draco Malfoy is her brother for two fucking books It is exactly as terrible as it sounds For two full books I had toive through Ripoff Ginny Weasley s angst over her crush on her brother and about their forbidden The Grand Sophy love or whatever the shit Yes I KNOW view spoilerthey eventually realize they weren t related But here s the thing they re still inove when they believe they are hide spoiler Wow I was reading some reviews on this and people either hate or A New Society love it I am not ashamed to say I belong to theatter Lots of opinions means there is Three Chinese Poets lots of things to sayOk so I was practically splitting my head op Clary just shut the hell up I was instantly enchanted when I first read City of Bones and that enchantment still holds four years and ateast half a dozen re reads Bounty of the Blood Witch (Dragon Hero, later in sptite of the fact that I m older wiser and should know better I ve also read countless reviews both adoring andoathing and have come to the conclusion that this book does not garner any type of middle ground you either Lestate dei giochi spezzati love it or you hate it I m glad that I get toove it What else can I sayimage error.

About the metaphors and the similes I can t I used to ike them Now they make me want to punch toddlers in the face because your book is full of approximately nine hundred and thirty three million of them I am also not going to talk about your bizarre tense changes and the random chapter you threw in from Luke s point of view which was completely out of character for both a man and a human The South Beach Diet Supercharged let alone Luke no one talksike thatAnother thing that I want to reference is this whole stele thing In Tatiana s review she mentioned that there didn t seem to be any parameters with this stele it seemed to be a fix it for whenever you had written yourself into a hole I may not have noticed it had I not read the review first given that as I was trudging through I was filled with an irrational rage It s a very good point though But since I read your book in three days just to get through it I m feeling Surviving the Silence like an asshole and I want to ask the following uestions can the stele make meook Kursk like Scarlett Johansson can the stele magic a cheeseburger out of thin air These are uestions of vital importance Because if the stele can t maybe you want to consider it in case one of your characters gets stuck on an island with no food for three years or somethingIn conclusion Cassie Clare OF COURSE YOUR BOOK IS GOOD YOU STOLE EVERYTHING IN IT FROM OTHER PEOPLE I just want to say that I sincerely hope that you makehave made aot of money off your books I also hope that the people you blatantly stole your content from take it all from you

a fuck and discover anything worth spoilingOkay so et me get this out straight I have never NOT finished a book before Okay I m ying The History of Sexuality Volume 1 by Michel Foucault remains unfinished as does Villette by Charlotte Bronte Why Because they were boringBecause as I read them I wanted to take a cheese grater to my skull and rub vigorously just to have something to doBut I have never NOT finished a Young Adult paranormal novel before And I ve read some BAAAAAD books But I didn t finish this book because it goes beyond bad It makes the History of Sexuality seem amazingly interesting and colourfulTo be fair to Ms Clare I was not actually reading her novel so much as National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy (Pelican Books) listening to the Audiobook The Narrator Graynor did a particularly craptastic jobTo be fair to Ms Graynor she didn t have much to work with I tuned her out I swear I was focusing on the actual prose taking in the story trying to get interested But the writing was terrible It was painful The characters were annoyingNow I ve been fair to Ms Clare and I ve been fair to Mr Graynor So there s only youeft to be fair to nowAnd in order to do that I have to admit that I wasn t EXPECTING to The Christmas Scorpion (Jack Reacher, like this book I was however expecting to be pleasantly surprised and Il explain whyMany years ago Cassandra Clare was Cassandra Clair a VERY popular FF author in the Harry Potter and LoTR circles I actually greatly enjoyed her Draco Trilogy I ve read it many times I had heard that this book was very similar to DT and so I was expecting to find it to be a guilty pleasure Something my moral compass told me to eave behind but that I would actually enjoy too much to do so my moral compass told me to eave behind but that I would actually enjoy too much to do so I was wrongYeah she plagiarized that work and I won t really go into it except to post a The Obliterated Man link because in the end I m not reviewing her I m reviewing her workBut here s the problem Jace is really just Draco from DT Simon is really just Ron and Harry amalgamated into one Clary is really just Ginny The bad guys seems too muchike good ol Voldie The plot is painfully similar to DT It was Figlio dellolocausto like reading her old work all over again And I think because she was really just redressing her old characters she didn t even both to give them any growth in this storyTo be honest I didn t read far because the writing was boring oh myord the similes Someone save me from them and poorly constructed the characters were boring and poorly constructed and the plot was boring and poorly constructedI d already read DT so I didn t need to read this 19 Apr 16 Bet you re sick of my updates nowJust for reference on the recent Sherrilyn Kenyon v Cassandra ClareKenyon has filed a Mr Majeika and the School Book Week lawsuit against Clare and also provides aist 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 Outliving look at Isabelle andook 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 Landscapes of Communism 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 sheifted 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 New Years Rockin Evil (Futurama Comics learning curve here or ateast 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 adies and gentlemen my experience reading City of Bones will provide evidence alongside many other ample evidence out there that no will provide evidence alongside many other ample evidence out there that no we as readers cannot keep the two things separate Sometimes our moral and ethic code just won t et 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 Tough Girl 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 meaugh out Those few and interspersed scenes surprised me ike 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 awnmower 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 Perfect Phrases for Lead Generation ll jump into another person s headThese conveniences are just one example of what I mean when I say that the narrativeacked 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 Conversationally Speaking life so honest and self aware as the characters in City of BonesAn asshat Jaceooked as if he were about to Hoot 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 boysike that You want to know what it s Red November like when yo.

Read City of Bones

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 ove 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 adies 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 noi Okay so I m far behind the curve on reading this but I very much enjoyed my introduction to the world of nephilim Shadowhunters and demons Clare constructed a vivid believable parallel world with great characters punchy dialogue and a winning mix of humor pathos and action I A Gentleman for Dry Creek (Dry Creek, like her take on warlocks vampires and werewolves and of course I m a big fan or urban fantasy where these fantastic elements mix into the regular gritty cityife of New York Clary Fray is a sympathetic protagonist though I was eually drawn to the supporting cast I especially Trail of Evidence (Capitol K-9 Unit like that the villains are believably three dimensional Even when you do not support them you understand what motivates them There is no easy black and white good and evil dichotomy Il be interested in seeing where the series goes from here and what Clare does with her Victorian preuel series The Infernal Devices A great and interesting books I manages to combine the infulences from many of top fictional series of our time It combines hidden magic world of Harry Potter the teenage drama of Buffy and a couple of themes from Star Wars as well The book is very well written and fast pacesWe follow Clary Fray a 15 year old misfit trying to find heself not uite sure if she is goth cyberpunk or just a temperamental teenaged artist One night in the Architecture by Birds and Insects local club Pandemonium she realises she is a witness to an attack the strange thing is that the victim of the attack disappeared right before her eyes and when security arrives despite the attackers standing right in front of them she is the only one who can see themClary descovers she is part of the world of Shadow Hunters and demons Shadow Hunters are demon slayers Sheearns stories of Vampires and Warewolves are truth than fiction She is attracted to Jace the most accomplished of this group of hunters Much to the chagrin of her best friend Simon and Jaces hunter brother AlexShe Beyond Carnival learns years ago a charasamitic powerful and high ranking Shadow Hunter called Valentine created his own circle to cleanse the world of all demonic blood Weather they were good or bad their existence was enough of a crime He was ruthless to the point he was willing to sacrifice anyone and anything human or demon as calateral damage Now after 17 years Valentine has seemingly returned from the dead to finish what he started Clary mustearn of the ways of the shadow hunters if she is help her friends stop ValentineGreat story good drama the characters are ok the only failing I found in the book were the fight scenes I think these are not the writer s strongest area yet All in all a great book not as action packed as I expected but the story makes up for this IMPORTANT EDIT 11418Fam I wrote this review in 2011 All of y all commenting in 2018 need to get over it I ve moved to a different account I ve moved past Cassandra Clare and while I maintain that this book is a blatant rip off of about 1000 other books and while a Microsociology lot of you insist that she s an original authorike it or not she does have a history with plagiarismbad behavior I haven t read any of her #New Stuff So I Can # stuff so I can tell you if she s continued to toe the Lefty line with plagiarism or write poorly In fact I can tell you that aot of people whose opinions I trust say that she s become a much better original writer I ve even considered reading some of her newer books If you enjoy her writing good for you If these books she s written are important to you I m happy for you My opinions are my opinions you don t have to share them What s really gross is the amount of bullying and personal attacks that are going on in these comments and in messages I ve received While I do regret some of the harshness of the original view attacking me or anyone else in the comments on either side of the fence is gross I ve received abuse about my ooks about my writing abilities I don t write about my sex ife people implying I should get aid about my mental health and even a few messages telling me to kill myself All because you don t ike my opinion of a book Guys even if you hate this review you have to see that this is way too muchI ve grown up since writing this review and I sincerely hope that some of you have matured too since writing some of the hate that I ve read some of of which I ve deleted in these comments Please stop Please move on Review from 12411I ve been deliberating for a few hours over doing a Serious Business review of City of Bones and outlining the infinite number of problems that Statistical Computing in C++ and R lie within but I decided that any critical thought that I could flesh out isn t going to be anything that you ve never heard before Therefore I choose theow road sarcasm and mockeryOh Cassie Clare you so crazy I can only guess that after writing almost a million words of so crazy I can only guess that after writing almost a million words of Potter fan fiction a bunch of people sucking your e cock for stealing whole paragraphs from books and uotes from Buffy simply wasn t enough No I understand You had to capitalize on all that time spent typing up whole paragraphs from books and outlining plots that pretty blatantly ripped off from various films books etc I get it I m sure that s how the Mortal Instruments came to fruition It is painfully obvious that your dopey red haired ingenue and snarky blond asshole were essentially Ginny Weasley and Draco Malfoy in Original Character clothing Ditto Simon being a hybrid of HarryRon and maybe Isabelle being a slutty Hermione But wait you didn t stop there Hodge is LupinPeter Pettigrew 20 and Luke is better known by his other name Sirius Black and I am not entirely sure why you didn t just call Valentine by his true name Voldemort And seriously though why not just call the Mortal Instruments by their true name the Deathly Hallows But wait it gets betterStrong with this novel the Force is because somehow there s a creepy Luke and Leia thing going on with Clary and Jace which for the record dude that s nasty How dare you Human Aspects of Software Engineering let them make out and then discover they re related Because I had to know in order to keep myself from hurling up my dinner I did discover that thisittle detail does get resolved eventually but I reiterate that s nasty I thought the point of this book was to make teenage girls hold their hands to their hearts and swoon not make them want to upchuck with what I find to be your disturbing affinity for incest seriously you had the whole six episodes of Star Wars to steal uh draw inspiration from and you pick the creepy incesty parts But it s weird because if Jace and Clary are Luke and Leia does that make Simon Han Solo In a weird way I found Jace s whole over confident demeanor to be How to Make a Plant Love You like Han which I guess is pretty on point with what happens inater novels In other news I will no Cities and Dialogue longer be referring to Valentine as simply that he is now Darth Valentine Yes I said it I guess this makes Jocelyn Padme except she s not dead yetI must give you where credit where credit is due though Clary isn t a total dumb annoying doormat heroine which is essentially my biggest pet peeve in the entirety of fiction Instead Clary is just dumb and annoying Why the fuck does she slap everyone It doesn t make her a strong venerable female it makes her a psychotic bitch especially since there wasn t a single justifiable slap she delivered Also she s a moron Blind deaf babies knew that Simon was inove with her My dog knew that Simon was in Christmas Doll love with her and the most complicated thought he has in a day is gee I think Il Dark Tide Rising (William Monk lick my junk today I have no idea why it s such a surprise to her really This brings me to my second greatest pet peeve and yet another trope that youiberally borrowed from well everyone all the boys want Clary What the hell is this shit Clary isn t even The Internet Book likable You stole it off of Stephenie Meyer who stole it off of LJ Smith and frankly You keep copying copies the shittierooking and harder to read they get You are not an exception you are the ruleAlso okay So the Clave is The Queen from Provence (Plantagenet Saga, like the circle of Jedi right And the Circle isike the Order of the Phoenix and the Death Eaters sort of but bad So Fearless Jack like Order of the Sith kind of Also is Darth Valentine channeling Magneto from X Men The Last Stand with his whole purifying the race bullshit I think he is Now that I ve brought the X Men into the picture I can see the vast similarities there too Clary is film version Rogue and Wolverine Rogue because she can t be with the person sheoves physically Rogue s The Film Club life sucking power Clary s being inove with her brother and Wolverine because of the whole not having any memories thing and wondering why he has all this power Also The Institute The Knight BusHogsmeadeThe Leaky Cauldron because sometimes the Institute boards travelers and there s bad food at all three places much Tarascon Pediatric Emergency Pocketbook like Isabelle s cooking and also Xavier s School For Gifted Youngsters and Hodge is kind of Professor Xavier ese his inability toeave the institute Professor X s disability and also The Jedi Training Academy and also possibly Starfleet from TrekYou know what the funniest thing about all this is Cassie Clare You aren t even stealth about stealing You know when most people shoplift they maybe do a cursory ook for the cameras and stuff something in their pocket when they think no one is ooking but you re that chick that goes up to the clerk asks a clerk a uestion about a product you have in your hand while winking that you just don t have the money to pay for it In this book there were blatant reference to both X Men and Star Wars Magneto and Prof X by name and the dice hanging up in the Millennium FalconNow that I ve drawn all necessary attention to your totally original content I want to talk about the story in general I read this book because it was handed down to me by my recently turned eleven year old niece I figured okay I The Success Secrets Of Brian Tracy - How To Achieve Your Goals And Be Succesful ll figure out what the big deal is with this book since everyone and their mom no really I think my mom too has read it My niece isn t what anyone would call fastidious she hates cleaning her room and at dinner sheikes to mash all of her food together and make a sculpture with it and then eat it Imagine my surprise when I saw that the portion of the book I borrowed from her had pages upon pages of highlighted words I figured aw cute she highlighted her favorite parts But no my eleven year old niece had gone through the book and highlighted grammatical errors There were misspellings comma splices and just general bad phrasing all throughout She had
