I'VE BEEN WAITING A YEAR TO MAKE THIS. OH YES. CLOCKWORK PRINCE.
« on: November 25, 2011, 03:52:21 AM »

Okay, I've been about to lay puppies everyday with excitement. Clockwork Angel is one of my favorite books, and...well...GAH. I've been stalking Clare's twitter for like a year, reading the teasers. All I have to say is...OH YES.

And if all your going to do is bash her writing, gimme a break. I'm too excited for criticism.  :P

Heh heh. Seriously, I'm about to die of excitement. I'm running (yes, running ;D) to Barnes and Noble right after school as soon as it comes out.

Is it better than the City series? Because i read those and they were ok, but kind of... medium.

Actually, I can agree with you there. The City series was kinda rusty. But seriously, I'd give the Infernal Devices a try. They're much better written, hilarious, and you actually LIKE the characters. It was the first book I'd read in a while where the main heroine wasn't a bumbling idiot, and was genuinely a good person. And, the love triangle isn't cookie-cutter. It's different and more complex than any I've seen before.

So yeah, I'd definitely try them. The first, like 100 pages of the first book are sorta slow, but its gets much better after that.

Ok the city series was GREAT! I have no clue what you guys are talking about. I mean the other books are great too but the fact the first 100 pages are hard to get into is why I don't like them as much.

Yeah, that's what I thought at first too. But it's actually interesting. I don't want to spoil, but like I said, all the characters are actually likable.

I LOVE clockwork angel and yes it has a love triangle but it isn't one that makes you want to puke!

I'll take a look at it. I just can't stand love triangles. They're so freaking overdone.

Yeah but this one is very prominent it is a super obvious one its subtle and complicated but in a diffrent way and it helps show more about who the characters are (a.k.a. It isn't like twilight)
