Read full description of the books:Okay...so the book focuses on Simon.
Simon being the main character was probably one of the few highlights for me in what was otherwise a very 'meh' book.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the term, let me explain:
- Meh refers to ice-cream that isn't blow-your-mind yummy but isn't disgusting either
- It can be used to talk about that one relative of yours you only see at the annual family BBQ
- It's the word Harry Potter fans use to describe characters like Ernie Macmillan or Hannah Abbott...or Hufflepuff in general (no offense at all to any Hufflepuff lovers! It's a great house.)
To sum up: if something is 'meh' it just is. It doesn't make you ecstatic, it doesn't wow you, and it also doesn't make you upset/annoyed. It conveys complete indifference.
I love Cassie Clare's writing. But I feel like the Shadowhunter concept has been dragged out as far as it can go. It feels sort of...boring, you know, reading a book full of characters I've already read about in six books (not counting the other novellas/spin-offs).
Do I need to rehash Isabelle and Simon's relationship?
Nope. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
Do I need to be told again how much of an adorable dork Simon is?
Nope. Been there, done that, got the $5 souvenir.
Do I need to be reminded that Simon and Clary are great as friends?
Nope. Been there, done that, saw him get rejected, got a box of tissues.
Do I need even more explanations of how the Shadowhunter world is run?
Seeing that this series is centered on a Simon who has completely lost is memory (six books worth, I might add) we, the reader, are forced to take a trip back down memory lane. Nearly every chapter is full of déjà vu moments that are a little tiring at times.
It just doesn't feel like a unique book about Simon. It kind of feels like Cassie re-wrote City of Bones, except the main character has memory issues, is male, and is not a redhead.
Hopefully the next few books in this spin-off take the plot to higher levels and really bring home a new tale that truly showcases the Simon we know and love :)
Simon's getting his own book, guys!
After everything the poor guy's been through in The Mortal Instruments series, he deserves to have a whole library dedicated to him. It's about time he got his chance in the spotlight!
