Has anyone here read Cinder by Marissa Meyer? We just got it in at my library and it looks interesting.

I liked it a lot. It's an interesting dystopian take on the fairy tale, with a strong central character. I didn't really like the cliff-hanger ending, but that's normal in this Age of Sequels.

I'm glad for the heads-up. I just ordered it from the library. Sounds good.

I thought it was an enjoyable read, but not one of my favorite books.

I enjoyed reading Cinder; however, I found the author's misuse of words annoying. For example she used "coronated" when "crowned" would have been the appropriate word choice. A king is crowned at his coronation.

5:  I blew through it in one sitting, but I agree, that was pretty annoying.  I also didn't care for the font she chose for publication.  It took a while to get used to.

I read Cinder. I really enjoyed it. I read only 1 or 2 YA books a year, but Cinder was definitely worth it.

I'm digging for more since my nephews are getting older, and I'd like to have a solid lineup for my goddaughters.

If you overlook the politics, which is actually pretty key to the story, it's an okay read. The setting of the story is in an absolute monarchy, seems to be no parliament to speak of. The head of state and head of government is the Emperor of the Eastern Commonwealth, rather than the Emperor of an Empire? At one point the Queen of England is involved in a meeting with heads of state trying to prevent war, which would indicate she has more power in the future than today. Besides this silliness it's okay.

I greatly enjoyed all 3 book that have been released thus far. It is a great spin on the traditional fairy tale and let's be honest, there are CYBORGS and you gotta love a good cyborg tale! You will fall in love with each new heroine and their adventures in saving earth from the horrid Queen Levana. Get lost in them and enjoy! (Would also be great to read with your kids!)
