Book Review: City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 stars

In the first book of the Mortal Instrument series Clary is astounded to find she can see things other people can’t. With the help of Jace and the rest of the Shadow hunters Clary has to discover her past to protect everyone’s future.

From first reading the Internal Devices prequel series I really expected more from this one. It might be that the Victorian era was more sophisticated than the modern era but I found the writing style in City of Bones to be immature and weak. I was completely surprised by the characters that I found lacking in well-roundedness and knowledge, unlike I found from Internal Devices. I will strive to continue on with the series just to see what happens and I am interested in watching the movie but I was seriously expecting a lot more out of this series that what I am getting.

I thought the movie was a lot better than reading the actual book. I would recommend skipping the reading and just watch the movies.
