Review of Cinder by Marrissa Meyer
Description: An Awesome Cyborg retelling of Cinderella.
The world Marrissa Meyer created is awesome!!! I felt like I had fallen into the futuristic of Japan.
I loved how it followed the story of Cinderella but had its own twists and the story could stand on it’s own without knowing the actual story of Cinderella. I personally wasn’t a fan of Cinderella growing up (Shocking! I know!) But I LOVED this version.
The Characters were well developed and the story development was easy to follow and I found myself actually reading faster than the audio – I was following along on my kindle while the audio narrated. I like to be read to occasionally. I finished the book in a break-neck speed in 48 hours – which I might add is probably a record for me. I tend to be a slow reader.
The world building was fantastic and interesting and very involved with the story development itself.
And to think I had this book sitting on my kindle since May 23, 2013! I’m so ashamed that it had sat almost a year before I read it and fell in love. I need to download the rest of the series to find out what happens to Cinder!!
I would strongly suggest you read this! Put it on the top of your TBR List.
Nothing that stands out to the point it bothered me. I might have over looked a lot because let’s face it love is very blinding. Ha ha!!!
PS – Marrissa Meyer should NOT be linked to Stephenie Meyer (Twilight) like I originally thought. Writing and Story development are totally different. I thought they were related – and maybe they are?! But I liked Marrissa Meyer’s story SO much!!!!! Please don’t dismiss this book because they share the same last name! Give her a chance!
