Cool setting, shallow story. Too predictable. ( )

Fun futuristic spin on a classic fairy tale. I've never read sic fi mixed with this type of fantasy sot this ended up being an enjoyable read. The ending felt a bit rushed but it is a trilogy so every will be answered eventually. The recognizable parts from Cinderella were done pretty well, but Meyer definitely makes this her own story. No love triangle (thank goodness) and a fun sidekick (Iko the android). Also a formidable villain in addition to the evil stepmother. My biggest complaint was the predictability of it all. Meyer is pretty heavy-handed with the foreshadowing and hints, to the point where I figured out the big questions early in the story. ( )

I have to give huge kudos to Marissa Meyer--re-imagining the Cinderella tale with a cyborg-heroine really knocks it out of the park! I enjoyed this retelling and will anxiously look for the next installment in the series. Writing, characterization, and pace were all strong, with lots of good ideas that kept the story fresh. Oddly, in the midst of overall strong writing, a handful of improperly-used words cropped up, which had me puzzling over where the editor was at those moments. Luckily, they stood out more as an oddity than a serious flaw and didn't impair my enjoyment of the book. ( )

Dark days have come upon the kingdom of New Beijing. An epidemic of an incurable plague has killed many people, rich and poor. The emperor himself is ill and dying. A doctor is trying desperately to find a cure, using cyborgs as test subjects. The testing has killed many cyborgs, and still no cure has been found. With the kingdom in turmoil, Lunar Queen Levana sees an opportunity to force Earth into an alliance by a marriage between herself and Prince Kai. One citizen of the realm is the key: Cinder, a cyborg mechanic. Her stepmother thinks Cinder is just property and a nuisance. Cinder just wants to be free and a normal person, not a cyborg treated like a second class citizen. Cinder meets the Prince and he seems to really like her, but she knows he could never love a cyborg. He can never know her secret....but little does she know that even she doesn't know all of her secrets!

This book is an awesome sci-fi retelling of the classic Cinderella fairy tale! Cinderella is a Cyborg. Add in a plague, a conniving, mind-controlling Lunar queen, and a dash of political intrigue, and you get a enormously fun read! This was the most original re-telling of a classic story that I have read so far! I will definitely be reading the rest of the Lunar Chronicles! There are several books in the series, plus short stories based in the Lunar universe.

This first book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. Thank God I have the second book, Scarlet, on my tbr shelf already, or I would be trolling Amazon for the kindle edition or putting an online hold on the book at my local library right this second. I think I'd better arrange for the 3rd book to be waiting in the wings if I go through the second book as quickly as I did the first! :)

Definitely a must-read for fans of sci-fi, or re-tellings. Cinder is a very well-written, and new slant on a classic tale. It brings new life to the fairy tale! I had this book marked as "currently reading'' but had several books ahead of it that I needed to finish. I wish I had put the others aside and read this one first!! Most enjoyable book I've read in a long time!

I love the cover art as well!

**January 2018 -- I wanted to read the rest of this series but it had been so long since I read Cinder that I checked out the audiobook to enjoy this book again. Glad I did! The audiobook was quite enjoyable. Narrated by Rebecca Soler, the audiobook is just over 10 hours long. She reads at a nice even pace and has an easily understood voice. I have hearing loss, but was easily able to hear and understand her reading. I enjoyed this futuristic/sci-fi retelling of the Cinderella story....can't wait to find out what happens next! I've heard so many good things about this entire series**

My rating: 9/10
