Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)

Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1) - Marissa Meyer Book rating: 4.5 stars
Audiobook rating: 4 stars

Initial thoughts: Cinder lived up every bit to its hype for me. It is not a book I would have picked out on my own. I've seen it a lot around the book blogosphere over the past year but didn't take all that much notice. But even I'm not immune to excessive gushing, so when it was a Kindle daily deal, I bought the ebook. Then this week I noticed I could get the audiobook on Audible for $1.99 as well, so I got it. My main regret with this book is that I hadn't read it sooner. I loved it, even though it was pretty predictable because the originality of this sci-fi retelling made up for it. The other gripe I had was with the audiobook because the pronunciations weren't always fitting for the setting: China, even if set in the distant future.
