I am a fictional reader. I like strong female characters that's don't require a romance story line.
this was an easy listen for young adults. I thought the concept was unique and I wasn't disappointed. *spoiler*
it did not wrap up at the end of the book which I found refreshing. I would get book two.
So... The only audibles I have truly enjoyed before this book have been by comedians. Tina Fey's, Mindy Kailing, Amy Poehler you catch my drift so to my surprise I am now hooked on a series that wasn't written or narrated by a comedian. Sure there are funny parts but overall I love the storyline, I will say sometimes there was a lack in detail but incredible story arc and character development and I just frighn loved it! I couldn't get enough, the narrator did a phenomenal job and I seriously could not stop listening to it until it was done. I eager to start Scarlet I do not even have the words to express my excitement. Anyways, seriously I haven't loved a book this much since probably Twilight (I know shudder but the books were good and I was a teenager, sue me!) and dare I say I am equally obsessed with the Harry Potter series. Thank you so much for writing this book and having the perfect narrator for it. Read this book or listen to it, whatever surges your wires ;)
I loved how the protagonist, Center, was able to do things for herself. I can't wait for the next one! The characters are well-formed and very gripping.
Wow I didn't really expect this. I knew it was going to be a retelling of Cinderella. But I didn't really know it was going to take place in the future. I was surprised that cinder is in prison and I hope she gets out safe. Can't wait to read the next book!
I really enjoyed this series. I love fairytales and I love the spin on this one. It's exciting to see how Marissa Meyers takes different elements of the fairytale and make them her own. I would definitely recommend this series.
Say something about yourself!
Could have been good. Our heroine is just too dimwitted for me. She must save the world but acts almost like she's in a blonde joke. Don't see what the good ratings were about. Not for me. I won't continue after this abrupt "to be continued" ending.
