It’s hard to sum my thoughts into a review especially with this book. This book isn’t like anything I have ever read before. It’s about suicide. A taboo subject. A subject that no one likes to talk about let alone read about. But Jay Asher wrote a book about it. A daunting book about a girl and the Thirteen reasons why she committed suicide.
This book has always been one that I have wanted to read for a long time and I was incredibly disappointed if I had read it when I was a lot younger then I am now I might have loved it but I just didn’t.
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.
It is always good to read a book that has elements of science in it and I actually mean science. Science has always been my favourite subject so to see the elements of that was brilliant.
This book is a standalone Fantasy novel with absolutely NO cliffhanger and that makes a change for me. I normally goes for books that have; 1. Cliffhangers; 2. Another book. But I must admit it was an alright book.
As I write this review I am crying. It’s not one of things that I normally do but this book just got to me.
I hate to love this book!
When I first started reading this book I never actually read the blurb and that’s weird for me, so when I started it I had no idea what I was getting myself into and that is one of the reasons I fell in love with this book. It was beautiful and I never wanted it to stop.
I’m not going to lie I didn’t like this book. When I read the review I was intrigued to read it. The blurb really drew me in but when I read the book I was disappointed.
The basics of this book when I first read the blurb, I hated.
A society who decides everything for you, who you love, where you work, how many children you have and how you die. It’s wrong so very wrong but I just had to see what Ally had to write about.
