S&S Review: Glitches

Title - Glitches
Author - Marissa Meyer
Series - The Lunar Chronicles 0.5 
Genre - YA Sci Fi Fantasy
Format - Kindle
Published - December 5th 2011
Publisher - Tor


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...


I read Glitches out of order. It’s the prequel to the first book in the Lunar Chronicles Cinder. Glitches give us a short insight into the arrival of Cinder with her new family. With no memories of her childhood she learns everything from the cyborg parts that where installed. She also has one foot and one hand that are cyborg. As Cinder learns to deal with her new family we learn more about how she ends up as a mechanic.

I love Cinder she’s one of my favorite characters in fiction. While the story was short only 32 pages it was interesting to catch a glimpse into Cinder’s first experience living with her step-mother and new sisters. While short the author has created a prequel that sparks the imagination so that you want to read the rest of the series. I know I want to read Cinders books from the start all over.  Glitches is a perfect start to a brilliant sci fi fantasy that teens as well as adults will enjoy. I only wish the story was longer because I can’t get enough of Cinders world. 
4 out of 5 stars
