Book: Cassandra Clare’s ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ – ” She looks like someone whose phone number should be on a bathroom wall.”

I haven’t read any of the six Mortal Instrument books but I have now seen the film of the first one.

If it wasn’t for the massive eyebrows and REALLY bad music it might have been an ok film, the effects were rather good at the very least.

However the snogging in the rain in the greenhouse scene made me reach for the remote.

There are some nice touches that seem to come from the books, for example the idea that Bach’s music can expose demons is rather fun, but the film feels clunky and slightly lost. And I spent far too much time wondering if her eyebrows are so HUGE in the book.
