I got pretty sucked in to this book; so much so that it ended being a pretty interesting all-night read. The person that rec'd it said that you know the basic plot line but the interesting bit is how they're going to get there. I'd definitely agree, as that's what had me so into it. It's pretty good for a YA and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

4.5 stars.

Very interesting book. I would have given it five stars if it hadn't been somewhat predictable. The plot twists would have been more surprising and great if they hadn't been obvious. Other than this, it was an awesome book.

Loger review soon. ( )

2016 Reading Challenge #01: A book based on a fairy tale.



Había leído tantas cosas buenas de esta serie que el único motivo por el cual no la había comenzado es porque estaba esperando que saliera [b:Winter|13206900|Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)|Marissa Meyer|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1447171461s/13206900.jpg|18390887] para poder hacer el binge read. Tan segura estaba de que me encantaría.

Lamentablemente, Cinder tiene un gran defecto: padece del "síndrome del libro del medio". ¿Saben a lo que me refiero? Leemos el primer libro en una trilogía, lo amamos. No podemos esperar leer la continuación y cuando finalmente sale... nos damos cuenta que es puro relleno. El desarrollo de los personajes no existe, la evolución de la trama no existe. De hecho, no pasa nada de nada y el libro solo vio la luz para que el autor -y la editorial- puedan ganar más dinero.

Pues algo así, pero peor porque este es el primer libro. Esta era la oportunidad para presentarnos el world-building, para desarrollar a los personajes, para hacernos querer leer los siguientes. En cambio lo que tenemos es una introducción de 390 paginas, con la promesa de una serie que mejora a medida que avanza...

Te lo agradezco, pero no. Te lo agradezco, mira, Marissa, pero no. ( )

For my grandma, Samalee Jones, with more love than could ever fit into these pages.

The screw through Cinder's ankle had rusted, the engraved cross marks worn to a mangled circle.
