In a nutshell, City of Bones is a good book. It has a good plot, spread out in a way that makes it appear like more time has passed than really has (which is great when it comes to the romance of the book), it has plenty of action and no dull moment, and the dialogues and characters were funny and interesting. However, it's nothing unheard off.
I liked Clary well enough. As far as main characters go, she's okay. Yes, I can't say I'm in love with her, but for the most part, she was fine. Though, sometimes, she was just plain annoying; she could be really stupid, really hard on herself and really mean.
I mean, clearly Clary never heard of the number one rule of magical societies; don't go garbing magical objects until you know enough about them.
And sometimes, she said stuff to people just so they'd be as miserable as she is. It's human, I know. But as someone who's had that done to her in her life, I find it hard to accept. Thankfully, she always apologized, or I would've hated her.
As for Jace...
