A Little Red Riding Hood retelling that has a plot that keeps your attention and writing that is engaging. The characters are fleshed out and entertaining and, overall, this was a pretty good read.

Great book. I was really looking forward to this book, because my friend connected with Scarlet. It did not let me down. Such good incorporation of all the characters, and I found my self struggling to get thru it, that's how good it was. So exited for Cress.

Oh my word. Got this one two or three days after I finished Cinder and was not disappointed. Scarlet is awesome. If I actually met her, I would feel like I'd gained a sister. She's not afraid to speak her mind, she works for what she gets... This girl is amazing.
And Wolf. Can we talk about Wolf for a minute? From the moment Scarlet thought he would ask for the whole pig, I was on his side. He's a complex character who falls into the category of 'fictional characters I just want to hug', and I really get where he's coming from. I'm excited to see more of him. He's like Bucky Barnes in a way, but with tomatoes instead of plums. Is that a weird parallel? Probably. Do I like it? Yes.
As for the plot, I yet again enjoyed it. I don't feel like there was as much insight into Scarlet's thoughts and character, but that's because there are more protagonists in this book then there were in Cinder. It's not overwhelming, and each one is important, but I didn't learn as much about the characters as I would have if it was just Scarlet's point of view.
Overall, a good book!

A delightful second book in The Lunar Chronicles where Cinder’s past is uncovered more and three new characters are introduced. I may have once more guessed many details about this but liked it still. I kept turning pages to see how it all turned out.

I really liked this book!
I like how this isn't a copy of Little Red Riding Hood even if some of it is based off that story. I like the unique plot and characters, especially Wolf's over-protective personality.
Some parts of the book I skipped, since I don't like it when the description of a thing is too long (but I know it's a requirement so that was fine.)
The reason why I gave this 4 stars is because some parts could get a teeny bit boring, but otherwise it was good. And books can always improve!

The Lunar Chronicles only get even better in the second installment, Scarlet. Super satisfied by how the story plays out and how good it is. The whole series is a must read and a win for Marissa Meyer

Fast-paced and addictive but quite implausible.

After a long silence of examining the retracting mechanism, the girl wrinkled her nose. "Two counts of treason, if you must know. And resisting arrest, and unlawful use of bioelectricity. Oh, and illegal immigration, but honestly, I think that's a little excessive." -Scarlet
