I tend to have differing opinion than the majority of readers when it comes to dystopian or apocalyptic tales, especially YA. But I've been curious about the novel Cinder and when I discovered the prequel story I figured I would give Cinder's world and Meyer's writing a chance. I was quite surprised that the short story was thorough and entertaining. In a brief period of time I learned a good amount about the family, Cinder herself and some of the world, or at least the cyborg/android world. I can honestly say the short made me quite interested in the full-length Cinder novel, which was not what I was expecting at all. Hopefully Cinder impress as well.
