The Little Android: Review


The Little Android is a retelling of The Little Mermaid, set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles by New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer.

When android Mech6.0, saves the life of a handsome hardware engineer, her body is destroyed and her mechanics discover a glitch in her programing. Androids aren’t not meant to develop unpractical reasoning or near-emotional responses…let alone fall in love.


The Little Android is a retelling of the original fairytale The Little Mermaid. The story is not meant to have a nice closure (at least for Mech6.0/Star in some ways). But it is enchanting, and I really like every single part of it. I'm also surprised that Cinder is there as well. And she's the remake of the Sea Witch (though the end is slightly different). I hope I can know more about the android and the engineer, though I know the story is not meant to last. But still, I strongly recommend Lunar Chronicles fans read this. It's fun and interesting and strangely heartbreaking.

Rating: 8/10
