This is a series that one who appreciated the Hunger Games might want to follow up with. However, I would read this series first as I LOVED the Hunger Games and just LIKE this book.
What was missing from the plot: Zander's thoughts... I am hoping book 2 will further develop this character.”
“I came across this series on my Kindle and really enjoyed it. It takes place in the future but it is not sci fi. Its a love story and I think teens and young adults will really enjoy this book.”Jennifer wrote this review Sunday, November 3, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“If you liked Hunger Games, you'll likely like this book. Not quite as violent, however.”Jenn D wrote this review Thursday, October 31, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Matched by Ally Condie is an amazing book to read because it all starts in a society where the officials decide who you love, where you work and when you die. Cassia match banquet is coming and when the day comes everything is not as planned. When your turn comes to get matched the screen turns blank what happened no one knows but then a face pops up on the screen it’s your friend Xander you are happy but once you see the micro-card Xander’s faces is not there someone else face is there it is your friend Ky. So who are you going to love Xander or Ky you should find out.
I rate this book 4 out of5 stars because it leaves you with a mystery to read. I really recommend this book foe all of you to read.
Cassia Reyes lives in a future where society controls everything. Your meals are prepared exactly for you nutritional needs, you die exactly on your 80th birthday, you marry the person who best suit you and would most likely “Match” to carry on the line…
Cassia is matched to her best friend. But, that’s only the beginning. She sees another face on the screen, one even society couldn’t have predicted.
I hated how the society would force you to do all that so much! I wanted to scream at Cassia to open her eyes, and I just want to throw the book across the room (but I won’t do that) but I love how they have a budding relationship that Cassia discover… the tension was just right, and I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen.
The book leaves you hanging… there’s a sequel and you are left hungry to -Condie in the back of book 1, Matched by Ally Condie, so you can get started right now. i defiantly recommend book, and I will be seeking out book 2, “Crossed”, eventually.
“Matched is a very intriguing start to the Matched trilogy. It leaves the reader asking for more. This book has a poetic style of writing that enhances the theme and genre of the book. I find it important to read this book before reading Crossed and Reached because it gives you a background of what has happened and foreshadows what is to come. ”Ebun Ajayi wrote this review Wednesday, October 30, 2013.

“Out of the 3 books in this trilogy, I liked this book the best. I liked reading about the 3 main characters - Cassia, Ky, & Xander. The story line had so much to offer, but not enough action for me to want to run to read this book. I really liked reading about the "world" the author created and it had so much promise of a moving storyline but I wish it had more drama & action to move the story along faster. It was still a good book and it had me wanting to read the next book in this series.”Michelle S wrote this review Monday, October 28, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
