My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Science Fiction
This was the book that pulled me out of my book reading slump. With Fantasy and Sci-fi, as well as a touch of romance, Cinder had so many of my favorite things to read. From the beginning, I was interested to see how Cinderella could be retold in such a futuristic, sciency way.
Let me tell you now, that these were not the case with this book. I got to see Cinderella as a (mostly) human being, with problems that we all have. (especially that problem with the prince not leaving her alone. ;) Because that’s such a BIG problem. I mean, come on Cinder) And I got to see her deal with them as a sort of human for a while. (no spoilers)
All in all, the recycled story of Cinderella was recreated and kept fresh in this great book. (with an ending to keep you on the edge of your seat until you can get the next book.)
