Publisher's Summary

The first instalment of The Lunar Chronicles - a futuristic reenvisioning of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic.

A forbidden romance. A deadly plague. Earth's fate hinges on one girl....

Cinder, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She's reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai's, she finds herself at the centre of a violent struggle between the desires of an evil queen - and a dangerous temptation.

Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth's future.

This is not the fairy tale you remember. But it's one you won't forget.

It was a good read

It was obviously predictable on the touch points of the story, as led by the title. It was also really good. It has fun, memorable characters, that were relatable and filled out, a well crafted world and interesting setting. It has cringy teenager moments, and some plot points I feel were added just for the sake of the fairy tale, and it was something I looked forward to listening to each time I got the chance.

I think this author is really good, and I look forward to more.

Good adaptation of a classic.

Even though it is a classic and It can be predictable, the adaptation to the future makes it an enjoyable journey.

Predictable but fun

For a long time I wasn’t keen on reading this book (as I’m not a sci-fi fan) but I had read so many good reviews on the Lunar Chronicles that I decided to give it a try. At first the book was hard to get into but after 2 hours of listening, I was sold. The narrator did an amazing job with the characters especially Iko. I really liked the protagonist “Cinder” and root for her enough to follow her story in the sequel.

new version

I love this version of Cinderella. I was hesitant to get it due to I'm not the biggest fan of Cinderella. But this book is worth buying!
