Great fun!

Such a fun story! A great sci fi twist on a familiar tale.

To begin with I found the narrator's voice a bit grating but I got used to it quickly and she actually gave a great performance.

Very exciting and I can't wait to hear more.

Fun Sci fi retelling of the Cinderella fairytale

I'm not usually into science fiction but I do love fairytale retellings so I wanted to give The Lunar Chronicles a try as they're hugely popular among YA readers online. I did enjoy the new twist on the old story, it's completely different to any other retelling I've ever come across, so it was fun to see where it differed and what was the same as the original. I'd recommend this book if you love fairytales and modern retellings, the Sci fi elements aren't too difficult to pick up even if you never read the genre, and the world building is first class. I'm looking forward to book two.
