The Little Android -- Marissa MeyerShort Story of Lunar Chronicles series
~ Goodreads ~
Rating: 4.5 Stars
**Based on The Little Mermaid. This short is part of the Lunar Chronicles universe, but can be read as a standalone story.
Bittersweet and angsty and quite heartfelt.
The Little Android is based on The Little Mermaid with Marissa Meyer's own twist to it. I tend to get a bit impatient with novellas, but this one had captured my full attention, which doesn't often happen unless I'm a hundred percent in love with the series' world and characters. While the Lunar Chronicles series is a creative and excellently developed one, I can't say I'm fully in love with the entire series so far even if I DO really, really like it.
This novella was definitely a lovely retelling and got some of my heartstrings tugged in the right directions.
Thoughts: Definitely my favorite novella of this series, and possibly one of my more favorite novellas ever read.
