I loved the author’s The Lunar Chronicles series and expected a lot from this book. I also don’t read many retellings and was looking forward to this one. There is also a LOT of hype around this book, but the good hype didn’t live up because I was pretty disappointed in this.

I have wanted to read classics for so long, to understand what is so special in these that so many people talk about it. Granted, many are like me too, not being able to finish reading them. I had started reading Jane Eyre quite a few months back but never finished it because it was not very interesting and doesn’t capture the attention. I had bought the book purely on impulse because the cover is pretty.

When I first checked out this book on Goodreads after seeing that it was available for reviewing, I was unsure. The book had ONE rating and review, and it was a five-starrer. Naturally, I was suspicious, wondering whether the book is actually good (because many times I’ve been misleaded by too many five-stars for a book which doesn’t deserve it). But the synopsis sounded good, the cover looked good, and I wanted to give it a shot. I am so glad I did because it turned out to be really good!
