Little Carswell is just as fun to read as the Carswell in the Lunar Chronicles. It's a story that Cress and him spoke about during their desert trek. It was a sweet story and lovely insight into Carswell's family history. ( )

While it was nice to get a look back at one of the instances that made Cress fall for Thorne, I can't help but be a little disappointed that he really was being honest about how he was always only looking out for himself. That being said, it was intriguing to get a small glimpse into what his family life was like that might have made him act that way. ( )

This short novella was interesting - definitely got a sense of Carswell Thorne's personality from an early age. Short but enjoyable novella for the Lunar Chronicles series! ( )

Carswell's Guide to Being Lucky is a cute, short glimpse into the teenage years of the dashing Carswell Thorne. We first met Carswell in Scarlet, and he's no less charming at thirteen years old than he is fully grown.

I loved this little window into his childhood, and especially the fact that he's always wanted to captain the Rampion. This is a really short review for a really short story, but I don't want to give anything away! As always, Marissa Meyer weaves an excellent story with characters you can't help but care about.

I really like Craswell! I probably shouldn't, but he's one of those characters you cant help but love. I like that we got to learn about him a bit more and this story was charming in its own way. 4.5 out 5 stars. ( )
