Reading the summary of Cinders already made me excited enough to read the book. As I watched the book trailer, my eagerness to read this book grew. I happened to recieve the book just today, and I raced through it in atleast 2-3 hours. Michelle Davidson Argyle is a great original fairytale story reteller. I did happen to enjoy her book-I just had a few things I wished could be changed.
I thought Cinderalla was a character that couldn't decide what she wanted anymore-the stranger or Rowland, Peasant life, or the life of a monarch. I was a little bit confused on what type of character she was. But as the story went along, I understood her better, and got to know her side of the story.
Kale was the unknown stranger haunting her dreams. I thought that he was really mysterious, which was good-it left me hanging off at a end. What I didn't like about him was that he decided to let Cinderella choose another path instead of the one she'd be happier on.
I liked the feeling of suspense, worry, intrigue. I thought this book measured up to Gale Carson Levine's stories, and I hope to read more of Michelle Davidson Argyle's books. Hopefully there is a sequel-it was partly unfinished at the end.
