Cinder (Meyer)

Start Date

But Cinder isn’t like that at all; she’s adventurous and snarky and good at fixing things, so much more in charge of her own destiny than her fairy tale counterpart. I loved the details about Cinder’s cyborg additions; how she can tell when people are lying or watch TV in her head. I was also interested in the idea that cyborgs (who are basically just people with disabilities that have been fixed with science) are second-class citizens. I think it draws a comparison to the ways we treat people with certain disabilities today. The cyborg and robot storyline also brings up all kinds of questions about what makes a person human. 

I could have done without some of the lovey-dovey bits, but it is Cinderella, so I suppose we did have to have a prince and a ball in some capacity. Other than that, it is a pretty solid YA read.
