This book is excellent! I am VERY anxious to read the next one. It's already one of my favorites. I was enthralled and couldn't stop listening. The author really draws you into the story and the reader is super too. Would highly recommend this one!
Despite a number of positive reviews, I found the book and the performance pretty boring. If I had realized that this is really a book for teenagers or younger I wouldn't have purchased. It's not that the retelling of the Cinderella story was juvenile, but the way the story was written and presented was. This is the first time I have disliked a book enough to not finish listening.
It kept you guessing, and from the moment the book starts you are instantly hooked.
She gave real life to the characters voices.
When Cinder kisses the prince.
Get this book :)
yes. It's fresh and new, but still a familiar story
Cinder sees herself on the hologram and sees her own capabilities. It makes me think of each of us as part of the human race, finding out new things we can do that are already right inside of us.
no, but she did this one so well I'd listen to any of her other stories.
Powerful, gripping, enjoyable,
Marissa Meyer did an excellent job of integrating the elements of a favorite fairy tale into a larger-scale story; translating the story into a futurisitc, sci-fi setting and adding larger scale plot elements (making me eager to hear the next installment).
Ms. Soler does a great job in voicing the characters and gives Cinder a great attitude and lots of spunk! I also love her interpretation of Aiko (Cinder's android companion) and the doctor.
This is an emotionally gripping story and I found myself tearing up a few times at critical moments. Ms. Meyer really pulls you in to Cinder's life, allowing you to feel her emptional ups and downs.
Syfi take on a cinderella story
Cant wait for the next book in the series.
The narrator's ability to create unique voices for each character and her ability to make the character's sound passionate during dialogue.
Cinder is a wonderfully unique character. I hate the typical cliche characters, and this story scoffs at the original Cinderella cliche.
She was the perfect voice for Cinder. I couldn't possibly imagine anyone else narrating this role. Her voice is passionate and real, and she makes the other character sound just as unique.
Yes, but I won't spoil it for anyone else :)
I enjoyed this book and was disappointed to learn that her next book is coming out in about a year! Unfortunately by that time I will probably have forgotten all about this series. The book ends on a cliff-hanger for those of you who hate that. It is a good adventure/action story, which takes some predictable turns. Overall the story is entertaining and engaging. I predict a major motion picture by 2015. Think Hunger Games.
for me it is, because if i read a book i tend to be inpatient and skip a lot of the dialogue so listening forces me to listen closely to every word...and for this book, every word is worth it!
i love the characters, the plot twist, the ideals....just amazing
she had really really really good accents! i was defiantly drawn in by the life she gave to the story.
i was at the edge of my seat the whole time! i was jumping for joy, and laughing, and i was ready to fight along side cinder!
this is a must read. it is such a creative spin on cinderella. i am counting the days till book two comes out! audible better have it the same day it comes out in print or i will have to buy the book instead!
