After falling in love with [b:Heartless|18584855|Heartless|Marissa Meyer|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1477740245s/18584855.jpg|26322524], I was really interested in starting the Lunar Chronicles series. Since most of my goodreads friends have given this book a pretty high rating on average, I had quite a high expectation. This book has definitely lived up to it's reputation.

Cinder, the first book of the series, follows the story of a cyborg mechanic set in a future where the fourth world war has been waged and the entire world is constantly under the threat of the ever powerful empress of the Moon, the Lunar Queen Levana. Cinder is the stepdaughter of Adri, whose husband had brought her along with her from a trip in Europe when she was only eleven year old. She doesn't retain any memory from her time before her accident and had to undergo surgery to survive. She is a resident of the New Beijing (capital of the Eastern Commonwealth) which along with the rest of the countries of the world is affected by the fatal disease leutomosis. The royal scientists are looking for an antidote by experimenting on cyborgs. With a charming heir of Commonwealth, Prince Kai, all the girls of Commonwealth are excited to see who he chooses to dance with at the ball. In a world where a cyborg's life is considered lower than human life, Cinder dreams of maybe escaping the torture of her legal guardian. Her life completely turns upside down when she is drafted for leutomosis research by Adri.

My favorite thing about young adult plots is the predictability. Sometimes I get surprised by the twists, but that was not the case with this book. I do like that this book was an extremely easy read; I wouldn't realize how the last 100 pages or the past hour and a half would go by. It is amazing how Marissa Meyer transforms simplistic tales into complex and intricate stories. It brings into perspective the million different possibilities that a single, simple story can have.

The reader will soon find themselves invested in Cinder’s life, and her difficulty accepting and coming to terms with the fact that she is a cyborg, made even more challenging with the social stigma she has to deal with on a daily basis, her amnesia, and the trauma that ensues. In fact, Cinder’s trauma and mental struggles to accept that part of her, which she is not at all to blame for but still being judged for by almost everyone, is not only well handled but one of the highlights, alongside her growing attachment to her love interest, prince Kai.

The book offers a futuristic interpretation of classic fairy tales and in Cinder that is well executed. The worldbuilding is gradual and through Cinder and its direct sequel Scarlet, we learn about this future Earth’s technology, politics, history, and current predicaments, as well as people’s day-to-day lives.

The mystery unfolds gradually, with each chapter giving the reader a little bit of development while raising more questions or give rise to new problems. Overall, the book is well paced, aside from the last two-three chapters. The POV shifts between Cinder, Kai and a couple of other minor characters, though it is mostly the former. This helps the reader to keep focus and favors immersion.

I was tempted with four stars, and much of the book easily is up in that rank, the overall threat is a cheap plot devise and it was hard to buy in on the huge threat that the main antagonist and their entourage are supposed to be, considering their very obvious, ought-to-be easily exploited weaknesses, of which there are aplenty. Too-early revelations, an OTT protagonist-antagonist confrontation, and a certain very obvious-you-see-it coming-200 pages-before-the-actual-reveal plot twist, also reduces the overall impression.

Official rating 3.75*
First of all, I must say I really enjoy fairy tale retellings and this happened to be a very original version of a retelling of Cinderella. The science fiction aspects of this story are what made it such a unique twist to the original storyline that all Disney movie lovers know and love. And the fact that Cinderella was always one of least favorite Disney princesses/movies (due to Cinderella's obvious lack of a personality), it was nice to see such a strong kick-ass personality coming from Cinder.

Even though I loved the storyline of this retold version of Cinderella, there were still a few things that either left me feeling like something was missing or just flat out had me thinking "what?"

The "what?" moments included things like, "What the heck is up with this weird font?" Something about the font kept me from getting into the story right away. I watched some non-spoilery review before reading this and the person I watched mentioned the font... that was all I could think of as I read through the first couple chapters. There were a few other times when reading through this story that I found some grammatical errors that also left me thinking "What the..." Sorry editors, but those errors leave me reading sentences a few times trying to figure out why they sound so strange... and end up taking away from the story for me. There were a few other times that sentence structures left me feeling the same way. I had to read them a few times because something about them didn't flow very well. I think that is just Marissa Meyer's writing style though and not necessarily anything to do with her editors.

Other moments had me feeling like something was missing. For example, What does T.E. stand for? As in, 9 August 196 T.E. I felt like that was something that should have been addressed (or hopefully will be addressed in the future books). There were a few other times like that I felt myself wondering how something had happened which left things feeling a little incomplete. Another example: What caused this WW4 and what was the complete outcome? We hear about certain aspects of this "new world" that was created in the wake of WW4, but I feel like I needed more details explaining how things came to be the way they were. I like hearing about politics and intrigue and I wanted a bit more depth to that aspect of the story.

Now on to the characters; I'm not sure if it was because of Marissa Meyer's writing style (see comments in paragraph 3) or if it was just me, but I didn't feel all that connected to the characters. I can usually muster up some feelings of sympathy (and sometimes if the writing is really good, empathy) for characters, but I just didn't feel all that invested in most of the characters. I felt like parts of characters' personalities have been rushed and that I need more to feel more for them. Cinder is clearly our main character, but I felt like even though she was a "flawed" character, I couldn't really relate to her flaws (because the only ones mentioned were mostly cosmetic in nature and not personality driven). There were certain characters that I felt had no redeeming qualities (Queen Levana and Adri), but you obviously need a strong villain who shows no empathy or sympathy for those around them in fairy tales. A lot of the relationships between characters felt a bit forced and not entirely natural - hopefully this is fixed within the next couple books as well. I want to read books that have personal growth and I don't really feel like any of the characters had much if any personal growth.

But all in all, even though the plot was quite predictable, this was a very cute story that I will be continuing to read because once I got into it (it took quite a few chapters, but got into it) the pages went by very quickly and I was pleased to see that I had been able to read this book within about a day.

The book was really gripping and it started it off so well and I thought I'd be giving it 5 stars, but then by the end it left a slight taste of disappointment in my mouth and I felt like I have to notch down the rating...

Full review to come. ( )

SO pleasantly surprised! Even though I predicted the twist, I didn't care. I really connected with Cinder, and was blown away by the world-building. ( )
