Synopsis: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. In “Glitches,” a short prequel story to Cinder, we see the results of that illness play out, and the emotional toll that takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch...
My Thoughts: I just recently read and reviewed Cinder, you can find the review here. I really enjoyed that book, so when I found this short little prequel I knew I had to read it.
This little short story is a great little addition to the Cinder story. In it we get peek at when Cinder is first introduced to her new family, we get to see her experience what it's like to be a cyborg, to try to deal with things that were easy before, and also to deal with the discrimination that comes along with being Cyborg. We get to see the friendship between Cinder and Peony blossom, as well as the entrance of Cinder's android friend Iko.
If you haven't you are safe to read this story without it giving to much away on the main story, it will give you a little tiny sampling of what is to come. If you have read Cinder, this is a fun read as you get to see the origin of many happenings from the main story.
This was a fun, interesting, short and easy read. If you are a fan of Cinder, or are even interested in reading Cinder, then I recommend this to you.
