I can’t say how many times I have tried to pick this up and never got past chapter one. I decided one last time to get through this and the audiobook really did help.
The twist on the fairytale Cinderella was interesting and kept me interested. I can’t say I have watched the movie. However, I think most kids in the U.S.A at least, grow up with knowing the basics of the popular fairytales. We grow up to realize how much they are Changed from the original story.
This follows what little bit I know about Cinderella. There was a nice Scifi aspect to it and I enjoy that.
I have hopes for Cinder and prince Ky.
I have moved onto the next two books since this review, which makes it hard to remember what book we learn who the princess is. As to not spoil it of course.
Scarlet is a retelling of Red riding Hood.
Cress is a retelling of Rapunzel.
