I honestly cannot wait to get this book on my shelf. Next time I order books, I am buying it. So, anyway, it was probably the cover that first caught my attention - I just love the look of that robotic leg through a translucent stocking. It sounds like a rather unique take on the Cinderella story and although that wasn't one of my favorite fairy tales, this sounds beyond cool.
So, what do you think? Have you read Cinder? Liked it? Didn't like it? Interested in it but haven't read it yet?
I don't think anything you tell me would dull my interest in it, but if I hear from too many people that it was really good, by wishing for it might reach a fever pitch...
