The narrator has a pleasant and animated voice that really takes you inside the book of Cinder.
The storyline leaves you wanting to see "what happens next". Marissa Meyer gives a great image of the characters and it's an easy listen for travel or relaxing.
I was looking for another series to listen to and glad I found Cinder!
Meyer recreates Cinderella in a whole new light: Cinderella a cyborg? Who knew? Set in a futuristic earth post- WW4, Cinder is a mechanic the Prince visits to repair his android. Cinder still has an evil stepmom but Prince Kai also has an evil Queen to deal with...and you'll be surprised at what passes for glass slippers!

You think you know the story. Well your wrong but it's a sci fi great story. I want to listen to the next one.
This was a very unique and fun look at the Cinderella story. At first it was a little weird but once it takes off it's a wild ride.
First of all the narrator did a wonderful job with the whole piece, great reading and variations between characters. Fantastic.
The story is a classic but this version bumped it up a notch and took it in a new and exciting direction. The character development, background, and overall plot was exceptional. It was a tough one to stop listening to and I already have book two in my cart!
This is a pretty thoroughly reviewed book, and I don't have too many thoughts to add on it, except for one specific reaction; I was sort of lukewarm on Cinder, because the protagonist has really bad judgement. I hate when a character is ostensibly presented as being smart and down to earth, but fails to make the most basic bloody connections, is pathologically dishonest out of dithering anxiety, and just generally can't seem to stop being thwarted by mishap after plot device. I stopped trusting Cinder, the character, really early on in the book, and that just made me take the whole rest of the story cringing.
One day, I may try to return to this series, because the parts that people like about it truly are great! I just need to get past a hefty dose of vicarious embarrassment for Cinder first.
