Book Review: Cinder

Book: Cinder

Author: Marissa Meyer

Recommend: This is a great read!

I have been curious about this book since it came out a few months ago but just hadn’t gotten around to reading it. I’m a sucker for rewritten fairy tales and I thought the cyborg bit was a different twist. I found it at the library this week and picked it up immediately.

I think I like this cover better…

This is the fairy tale of Cinderella set in a futuristic earth where the people on the lunar colony have developed gifts and cyborgs are second class citizens, belonging to their guardians. Cinder has nothing and her guardian controls everything she does. However, when she meets Prince Kai, everything changes.

While this book definitely had all the elements that make up the Cinderella story, the author doesn’t seem to feel tied down to the traditions to the point where the story suffers. This book is the start of a four book series. I can’t wait to read the next book and am frustrated that I have to wait a whole year for it!

This one should be on any YA fan’s reading list!

Final Rating:

Need more than one copy!!
