I have never read a retelling of Cinderella before and I must say that Cinder is an awesome retelling. It isn’t the typical retelling. The elements of Cinderella are at the core but it is an extraordinary version that is told by Myer.
I did however feel that the major plot line in this story was a tad predictable which can be very annoying but it was told in one of those ways that makes the story even better.
Even though I thought that major plot line was predictable that didn’t mean I don’t like this book because I do. I love this book.
The story is told brilliantly and Myer should be proud of this book it was awesome and it kept me hooked. It has it’s twists and turns that just draws you in as a reader and keeps you wanting more.
What helped in this was the amazing characters that we’re created. Cinder makes this story. She is a brilliant main character. Even though she has some disadvantages she doesn’t let them hold her back. They make her unique and that makes her a better character. She is such a strong character especially with everything that gets thrown at her. All the lies and the secrets but she is just amazing.
Cliffhangers. I hate cliffhangers and this book had the biggest cliffhanger of them all. I can not wait to see what book 2 holds.
