Cinder book review
Series: The Lunar Chronicles
Number in series: 1
Author: Marissa Meyer
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
Plot: Cinder, a mechanic, lives in New Beijing with her stepmother and two stepsisters. Cinder is a cyborg, which makes her outcast in society. Her only friends are her droid, Iko, and her stepsister Peony.
When Prince Kai asks Cinder to fix his droid, Cinder is thrown into a world of secrets and intrigue. As Cinder learns of some scary truths she is in danger of hurting those around her.
What I liked about this book:
This was such a interesting book!!!
The way the author made a well known fairytale into a YA Sci-Fi was brilliant. I am excited to see how she will incorporate other fairytales into this series.
The characters were well rounded. The main characters were quirky and funny. The evil characters were thoroughly wicked and despicable.
The plot was based on Cinderella, but it felt like a new story. It didn't end like I thought it was going to ( in a good way:).
What I didn't like about this book:
There is some content; Mild swearing and a few innuendoes.
It is hinted at that certain types of androids are prostitutes.
My rating: 3
