Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I don't usually scarf down a whole series.  I usually spread the books out a bit.  I have a feeling I won't be doing that with this series.

I just finished Cinder, by Marissa Meyer, and loved it.

Yes there were issues.  I think it could have developed the world a little more fully, and wrung a little more from the big what-ifs of this future.  I found a few words that weren't used quite right, and had issues with little plot holes and inconsistencies, but I didn't really care because I was just enjoying it so much.  

The writing is very good, the romance nice, the characters interesting, the sci-fi setting cool.  I love this unusual take on the Cinderella story, and the way it stays true to the tale I know while somehow managing to twist it into something totally different.  It ends on a cliffhanger (not my favorite thing), but luckily my friend had the next book ready for me.  I finished Cinder today on my lunch break and I've already started Scarlet.  

Definitely the most fun read I've had in months.  

Rating:  4.5 stars
