The blog for books and movies

Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a technological mistake by most of society and a burden by her stepmother. Being cyborg does have its benefits, though: Cinder’s brain interference has given her an uncanny ability to fix things (robots, hovers, her own malfunctioning parts), making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. This reputation brings Prince Kai himself to her weekly market booth, needing her to repair a broken android before the annual ball. He jokingly calls it “a matter of national security,” but Cinder suspects it’s more serious than he’s letting on.
Although eager to impress the prince, Cinder’s intentions are derailed when her younger stepsister, and only human friend, is infected with the fatal plague that’s been devastating Earth for a decade. Blaming Cinder for her daughter’s illness, Cinder’s stepmother volunteers her body for plague research, an “honor” that no one has survived.
But it doesn’t take long for the scientists to discover something unusual about their new guinea pig. Something others would kill for.

  1. CINDER BY MARISSA MEYER is a fantasy retelling of the fairytale, Cinderella. It is very sci-fi and futuristic but still adapts to the fairytale element. When I first picked up this book I had to shut it quite a few times before I kept reading it, and I was definitely not disappointed. I loved this book because the world was so well developed and the diversity between the characters personalities were set out so well. My favourite part of the book was when Cinder (just like Cinderella) went to the ball! Cinder was not represented as ‘beautiful’ during the scene where she enters in her ball gown. She has grease stains on her gloves and she had just been in the rain. It is so refreshing to the normal story where Cinderella is always beautiful and gorgeous and this scene was so realistic and so human. I can relate to Cinder because I, too, am a horrible dancer and can’t dance one bit. My least favourite part of the book was every part with Adri (Cinder’s stepmother) because she was so horrid to Cinder just because she was a cyborg. I would give this book a 94% and would recommend this book to all fantasy readers and people who enjoy Star Wars.
