Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

    "YA disappointment - no fairy tale chemistry!"

    First with the positive: Rebecca Soler did a good job narrating! Now the rest: When I think of twisted fairy tales, I know each twist varies but I do look forward to a happy ending. This is Cinder's journey with 3 more books before you are able to reach a conclusion. Also, I didn't feel the chemistry between Cinder and Prince Kai. This book series has a lot of hype among YA, but I thought book 1 would end with Cinder's HEA, and another fairy tale would begin in book 2, etc. That's not what happens. I don't think I will continue the series, at least not right away. Worth the credit? Not for me. I might get it on sale.

    "Eh."

    To be fair, I don't know if this is YA fiction or not. I thought it wasn't. if it is, it's probably fine. Im not a YA reader and wouldnt be able to rate it well. I think a 10 or 12 year old me might have loved it.

    This is a Cinderella story but I didn't expect to be able to predict every. single. thing. The writing itself is pretty simple. The narrators voice wasn't very easy to listen to but she did a good job, overall. I'm curious how the series ends but not enough to purchase the rest of the books.

    "Good read"

    I enjoyed it. Although Cinders personality at times made me upset. But I suppose it was understandable considering her situation.

    Story
    "What's not to like?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure I would, I actually thought it was a pretty neat take on the Cinderella story. Granted it was a bit loose on the connections at times but then she would remind you with a small tidbit. It was interesting and kept my interest throughout the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think besides Cinder my favorite character was her android companion. (I've blanked on her name at the moment.) She always seemed to lighten the mood and said something funny at the time to ease the tension. Which in real life a good friend would try to do.


    What about Rebecca Soler’s performance did you like?

    She did a good job of varying voices for the different characters, I'm not really complaining about the work she did for the android and computer system voices. But I listened to a Doctor who book before this and they had a voice changer that they used to make a robotic voice in that reading. I bet something similar would be a good fit for this story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did want to listen to it all. But of course not enough time to do that. It did make me want to know what happens next.


    Any additional comments?

    I think a few people judge this book a little too harshly, Some made comments about why there are roads. Which they basically answered in the book seeing as hovers had to be over the road where the magnetic tracks were in the ground. As to why there were roads as well would be obviously because people still have to walk around some.

    People also failed to recall in this world it's past WW4. It wouldn't be completely implausible we lost some of our technological prowess after nuclear detonations and the like. Also seeing that it's a completely different society from today where we wouldn't (hopefully) condone basically having slaves. It wouldn't be too shocking that in this world they may do things differently with trying to cure diseases such as the plague in the book. Including using live specimens.

    I was a little confused how the old world car was still in a junk yard. But on the other hand it wouldn't be too surprising if someone had kept one for a long time as a part of a collection at one time and maybe it just got too hard to keep any longer. Gas for a car like that might be hard to come by but then, you could make a car run on alcohol if you wanted to so yeah not too shocked there either.

    The fact is, if you can't work out these kinds of situations for yourself and you -need- an author to spell out every detail to you, you are probably lacking the imagination needed for a book like this. There's only a couple of things far less obvious than those I was curious about. One would be how they contain the plague when they just pile everyone in a warehouse. Seems pretty risky, personally. And then what they do with the bodies. I'm sue they incinerate them, but if they had a better way of disposing of them it would be interesting to know.

    In the end, it was a good book. I've started on the next one and looking forward to seeing where the story goes. :)
