Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Matched Trilogy:

"This futuristic fable of love and free will asks: Can there be freedom without choice? The tale of Cassia's journey from acceptance to rebellion will draw you in and leave you wanting more." --Cassandra Clare, New York Times-bestselling author of The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments series

"A superb dystopian romance." --The Wall Street Journal

"The hottest YA title to hit bookstores since The Hunger Games." --Entertainment Weekly

"A fierce, unforgettable page-turner." --Kirkus, starred review

"Condie's enthralling and twisty dystopian plot is well served by her intriguing characters and fine writing....Cassia's metamorphosis is gripping and satisfying." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Condie’s prose is immediate and unadorned, with sudden pings of lush lyricism [and] reveals seeming to arrive on almost every page." --Kirkus, starred review

"Distinct...authentic...poetic." --School Library Journal

"Love triangle + struggle against the powers that be = perfect escape." --MTV.com

(My wife's review). This is a series tailor-made for Hunger Games readers. Romance and action in a Big Brother society, and I'm not giving anything away to tell you that it starts with a teen girl, Cassia, who is shown her expected marriage match but for a brief second another boy's face appears on the screen. Hmmm... The story builds from there, each book adding a new layer and new voices to the narrative. Addictive reading.

I bought these books for my niece's 15th birthday gift and thought I'd read the first book to make sure the contect was appropriate for her. Little did I know I'd fall in love with the characters and couldn't put the books down! My neice is going to love them and now we'll have something else to talk about. Can't wait for the movies to come out!

I read a part of the first book before and when I saw this on a lightening deal I had to grab it. 3 hard cover books for less than $10 each. If you liked "Twilight" or the "Hunger Games", I really think you would like this story. I would also like to recommend "The Giver" as I think it is similar to that as well.

***Update 3/12/13***

I just got done the first book. The first book starts out slow but those last few chapters will have you racing through the pages. If you like any of the above books that I mentioned, at least read the whole first book before you decide if you like it or not. Will update when I am finished reading the 2nd and 3rd book as well.

**possible spoilers here and there**

Book 1-Matched- I really liked the start to this trilogy. It gave a great set up to how life has turned out some time into the future and it gave me a true sense of suffocation. I know that the characters in the book didn't feel that way for the most part because that's what they grew up knowing. But the author did a great job at making me feel what it would be like to live in that situation. Matched was the background and build up book. It gave the basic background for how this lifestyle came to be and it was a perfect subtle build up for what's about to come. How even in a seemingly perfect society nothing is truly as perfect as it seems. And how in a way living this way seemed more terrifying than living in chaos.

Book 2- Crossed- I liked the adventure in this book and Cassia's slow discovery of the world outside her world. In her eyes everything she was seeing was so new, breathtaking and terrifying at times and I enjoyed the discoveries and endured the sadness right along with her. In this book you start to see the true colors of the Society and the Rising and neither one gives a great impression. You see how the Society is quick to try and extinguish anything that doesn't fit perfectly into their tiny, shinny bubble and it's a terrifying thought to think that at any moment they could deem one of your actions unsuitable for the society and have you shipped off to God knows where to fend for yourself without batting an eye. The Rising wasn't much better. They seemed to trust very few people and felt just as controlling an manipulative as the Society.
This book is also where I started to dislike the series a little. I read somewhere that the authors favorite character to write was Indie...and it was painfully obvious.

I exchanged a book I received as a Christmas gift (that I had already read) for the first of this trilogy. I am so glad I did. Once I finished the first book I downloaded the second two on my Kindle and read them in one night. The first book is definitely the best, the next two a little weaker.I always have to see where the story ends so I continued through. The concept is interesting and the characters will draw you in. I used the concepts from the book to start some interesting conversations with my kids!

These are great books. Well written and they keep your attention. They came packaged in a boxed set and were in perfect condition. Both my 17 year old and I loved the books.

It was a cute series but didn't have the depth I was looking for. Too much "oh i love him" without much detail in how or why she loves him.
