City of Bones  - Cassandra Clare I am SO glad I'm finished with this book, the last time I have felt like this was when I read Wuthering Heighs (though that was a much more intense feeling of wanting to finish a book).
I don't hate this book, but I don't like it either, it was okay and I will NOT be reading the rest of the series.
Wow this book has bad character development most of the time, and the information dumping, like please don't! I can honestly say, I skimmed about 150 pages of this book because I was so tires of reading it.
That is to say, this seems to be a love or hate kind of book, so just because I don't like it doesn't mean you won't.
(though I still stand by that, hate it or love it, this is a very mediocre book).
