The premise is good, and the characters are compelling. The true fault of the story is how obvious the twist is (You'll guess it in the first couple of chapters), and that it doesn't get revealed until the end of the book. There is no conclusion or wrapping up of the story, just the surprise twist that you saw coming. On it's own, the story was fairly disappointing due to the timing of events.

A truly great audiobook! This Sci-Fi re-imagining of Cinderella does fall into some predictable plot structures at times, but has an inventive premise of the state of the world (and the moon) in a few hundred years.

Thoroughly enjoyed the audiobook version of this Cinderella retelling. Although I figured out the final "twist" early on, I still continued rooting for Cinder and Kai. This is a cinematic story and I had to check to see that it's not (so far) being made into a movie. If you enjoy fairy tales and sci fi, this is absolutely the story for you.

I'm not sure how I missed this book (and the ensuing series) when it came out, but I'm glad I stumbled across it. Marissa Meyer's creative re-telling of the classic Cinderella story was fun. On to book #2!

My daughter introduced me to this book. Once started it was hard to put down.

I had tried reading this book once before and don't know why I was unsuccessful. Listening to it now as an audiobook, I am riveted. I already have a hold for the next one. Audiobook may be the perfect medium for this, it is fantastic.

This is the first audioBook I have listened to, I really enjoyed it actually, I at first thought it would be monotone and google-voice flat. I found out I like people reading to me!, I had read the book before, But listening to it, I now think of it a bit different, But I do think the lady pronounced some words wrong, But I am still happy with this.

I love this book! I had got it from a friend and was a little not into reading it. But once I got into it I couldn't. I recommend this for any reader who is looking for a fantasy or Sci-Fi
