Book Review for: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder had quite an interesting plot, but it was unnecessarily prolonged. I zoned out 3 times in different days while reading it.
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth's fate hinges on one girl. . . .
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She's a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai's, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world's future.
There were some chapters where I totally got attached to the story and some chapters which were oddly boring. I was very unsatisfied by the ending but the suspense overwhelmed me. If you would like to finish a book very slowly; Cinder would be your best choice. I would give it a 2.5 out of 5.
