IRJE: Cinder

Cinder by Marissa Meyer. A 16-year-old female, that it has mechanisms, it takes place in New Beijing, the Blue Fever starts which is a disease that has no cure.

Smiling through locked teeth, Cinder gestured at the prince. “Iko, please pay your respects to our customer.” She lowered her voice. “His Imperial Highness.”

Iko craned her head, aiming the round sensor up at the prince, who towered more than three feet above her. The light flared as her scanner recognized him. “Prince Kai,” she said, her metallic voice squeaking. “You are even more handsome in person.”

Cinder’s stomach twisted in embarrassment, even as the prince laughed.

“That’s enough, Iko. Get in the booth.

“You don’t see a personality like that every day,” said Prince Kai, leaning against the booth’s door frame as if he brought androids to the market all the time. “Did you program her yourself?” (p. 2)

Prince Kai wanted to say that there is different personality and you can’t see them everyday in the same place.

  1. This seems like an interesting quotation, but it could use a little more introduction. I have never read this book before, and have absolutely no idea what it is about. It would be helpful for my understanding of it if you went into more detail about, for one, what the book is about in general, and for two, what the specific situation is in which this passage is occurring.

  2. Your book looks quite good, but I think you could make it sound a lot more interesting by giving more context and explaining what is going on in the quotations.

  3. This looks to me like an interesting story, but I think that next time you can improve by sharing more information on the quotations you choose to include. I would also suggest that including more information about what the story is about would help to make your writing more compelling.
