Before I get into the meat of these snippets, I wanted to thank all of you guys who have put up me for twenty-three straight chapters of this book. Thank you all so much! Seriously, I wouldn’t have gotten to this point without you guys. In the grand tradition of my sporking hero Das Mervin, we are going to take a quick look at how we have gotten.
I have written an astounding 84,032 words, written 270 posts, and I have read 150,000 words of ‘City of Bones’ These sporks all together is the longest completed written project that I have done to date, and again I wouldn’t have the to strength to power through everything without you all guys. Next step for me is to do an in-depth review of the movie adaptions ‘City of Bones: The Mortal Instruments’ and then I will be recapping both the first and second season of the television show ‘Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments.’ So stay tuned for that!
First off, it’s pretty obvious that a lot of time has passed since the last chapter. So we have no idea what date it is or what time day it currently is! No, we are just plopped straight into Jocelyn’s hospital room with no warning at all. It’s enough to give a girl whiplash.
I also have to ask, why the fuck is Jocelyn still in a coma? Seriously, I can understand not wrapping up some subplots and storylines, especially if a book is in a series. However, we don’t get any closure concerning the plots and subplots of this book. And it’s a fucking slap in the face to the readers who went through all of this forced melodrama and long dry exposition to only get nothing but Cassandra Clare wanking over her mary sue self-insert in return.
Next problem I have with this passage, is Brother Jeremiah. If he’s not there to help Jocelyn then why the fuck is he even in the hospital in the first place? He just came there to rub in Clary’s and Luke’s face that he could help Jocelyn, but he won’t because she left the Clave.
Everyone in this book is an asshole, because in the end, every character in this damn book is a reflection of Cassandra Clare herself. And she has to be one of the biggest assholes in the publishing business.
