This is the most unique re-telling of Cinderella that I've read so far. It was a little hard to get into at first, because of the mechanical terminology being used in the first section of the book, but after I got past that the story flowed pretty smoothly. I enjoyed seeing the parallels between this story and the original Cinderella fairy tale. The setting was interesting - a future universe, the story centering around New Beijing, a future version of China. I wish I could have learned more about what life was like in the other areas in that world, especially Europe. The plot line was predictable, but I didn't expect the story to end with a cliffhanger. I will definitely read the next book in the series!
