Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

Cinder - Marissa Meyer A lot of fun, and a quick read.

I found the racism really difficult to cope with - but it's not the author's fault that humans can be pretty nasty bits of work, at times. To think that people would treat others as less than human, just because they have a few mechanical parts is pretty revolting - but actually more understandable than treating others as less than human because of the color of their skin or their gender. After all, Cinder the cyborg really is 36.8% not-human.

More review when we finish our group read...
