    Description

    Bloomsbury presents Cinderella Is Dead by Kalynn Bayron, read by Bahni Turpin.

    Girls team up to overthrow the kingdom in this unique and powerful retelling of Cinderella from a stunning new voice that’s perfect for fans of A Curse So Dark and Lonely.

    It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again. 

    Sixteen-year-old Sophia would much rather marry Erin, her childhood best friend, than parade in front of suitors. At the ball, Sophia makes the desperate decision to flee and finds herself hiding in Cinderella’s mausoleum. There, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella and her step sisters. Together they vow to bring down the king once and for all - and in the process, they learn that there’s more to Cinderella’s story than they ever knew....

    This fresh take on a classic story will make listeners question the tales they’ve been told and root for girls to break down the constructs of the world around them.

    Homosexual story that I'm not interest in

    Listening to a homosexual story, for me, is likely listening to a story about two cute dogs in love. I'm not interested in dogs in love nor am I interested in people of the same sex in love. I Wished they had made it clear in the description that it was a story about 2 women in love so that I could have avoided paying and wasting my money.

    Great rendition of a usually bland fairy tale

    As someone who doesn't like the typical Cinderella story, this rendition did not leave me wanting! The story put a new and much needed twist on the fairy tale, one that highlights a few key criticisms of the Disney-fied version.
    Sophia is a very loveable and headstrong narrator that leads the readers through the plot easily; her story is compelling in a way that the typical Cinderella retelling is not. She is a woman that is ready to do what she can for the ending she wants, not the one that has been foretold for her.
    I can't wait to see what Kalynn Bayron puts out next, and would love to see her retell other fairy tales!

    I was excited and immediately deflated

    The premise had me so excited I skipped the preview! That was a mistake; maybe this book could be better if you bought it and read it yourself. I doubt that; I wish I could get a credit refund.

    Loved it

    I loved everything about this book. It had women’s rights, lgbtq, equality and justice while still being a fairytale in its self.

    Great idea but...

    Started out well enough, is an interesting premise but as the story advances the plot gets weaker and weaker and is too easy to see all the "twists" almost from the beginning of the book. I really wanted to like this book because the empowering representation is very rare but it could have had more substance to back it up

    Almost Loved It

    I love spins on fairy tales so thought I would love this book. While the story does have some twists, most of it is predictable. There are some parts that feel a bit disjointed. It feels rushed in some areas and drawn out in others. The protagonist annoyed me so it was really hard to empathize with her. She comes off as selfish and whiny and it gets to be annoying. Also, I thought it would take more of a deeper look at fairy tales as a whole and the messages we’re sending to women.

    What really pulls me out of it is the narration. I really struggled with it. There are moments where it’s really good and you can feel the emotion, but the rest of the time there’s no real feeling. Some character voices are done really well, others aren’t. This is the second book I’ve listened to that she narrated; I doubt I’ll listen to another.

    Great concept, poorly executed

    The concept of the book is clever and intriguing. However the last two thirds of the book are boring and feel like filler. This was extremely hard to finish and I am a huge fan of the fractured fairytale genre. The narrator reads well but the text is straight up repetative and dull. So many unnecessary, annoying scenes that serve only to make the novel longer instead of moving the plot or developing characters. I don't recommend.

    Simplistic :(

    I loved the ideas here and was so excited for this book. But the world building is non-existent and the characters are flat and sometimes ridiculous. The simplistic nature was almost an unintended slap in the face of the real world issues at play. All in all, it was a dissatisfying listen, even with the amazing Bahni Turpin narrating.

    Absolutely Love

    This was amazing. Definitely a great great read in some ways. Men trying to rule the world and wanting people to conform to them goes on today. Constant is a character I love so much. such bravery
