Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

For the most part Cinder is a very enjoyable book. It’s a very unique take on the Cinderella story. It’s sci-fi but not super technical so it’s appealing even to people that aren’t really into sci-fi. There are two problems with the book, though. First, it is extremely predictable. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but I spent 2/3 of the book just waiting for what I already knew would happen to happen. It was just really obvious that was the way it was going. Second, it ends very abruptly. The story continues in the next book, but I much prefer books in series to each have a satisfactory ending. When this one ended I was left feeling kind of cheated out of a chapter or two to wrap things up a bit (it didn’t help that because there is so much back matter, the Kindle book was only at 80% when the book ended). I recommend this book to people who enjoy young adult dystopian books but only if you are planning to go all in and read the entire series.
