Cinder Audiobook Reviews
This book sat on my shelf for a few months because I wasn’t entirely sure how I would react to it. The premise certainly made me curious. Cyborg Cinderella with aliens. Hmm. Either this was going to go south very quickly or it might just turn out to be worthwhile. Either way, I didn’t want to get involved in a new series when I still had several unread books on my self. As it turns out, that fear was well-placed. I finished this book in three days and promptly ordered the second one. I’m even considering ordering the third one well in advance in order to avoid the two-day wait.
The beginning piqued my interest, and I remember thinking that I was glad it wouldn’t be a dull read. I hate picking up books with amazing covers and then finding out that the pages between said covers didn’t live up to the expectations. The world-building for Cinder was solid, the writing grammatically sound and even the style and voice drew me in a little. The setting kind of unsettled me. I’ve never been a huge Asian-setting person, but this wasn’t off-putting in any manner. It was unique and original. Somewhere along the way, this story won me over, hook, line, and sinker. I became heavily invested in the lives of the characters, and utterly obsessed with the newest plot twist. There were some things I found a tad predictable, but in a way, that didn’t detract from the story either. I was more interested in the presentation of the few predictable moments and there were plenty of unpredictable events to make up for it. The story was age-appropriate, which is a huge bonus in my world. And as much as I adore fairy tale retellings, I can’t get over how few references there actually are to Cinderella. I just loved that the story was its own and that it tipped its hat to Cinderella instead of mimicking it. That was something I found phenomenal. Don’t get me wrong, the connections are pretty clear, but they’re clever and the story doesn’t hinge on them. The story isn’t dependent on the connections, but it uses them to its advantage.
I don’t like to just dish out five-star reviews, but I think this book truly deserves it. A job very well-done. Part of me wishes I had been brave enough to read this sooner, and yet, the other part of me is selfishly glad because now I don’t have to wait for the sequels to come out! I just have to order them!!!
