Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-In this gripping and richly satisfying final book in this dystopian series, Cassia, Ky, and Xander recount in alternating chapters how they secretly find themselves working for the Rising, the group that's trying to overthrow the rigid and oppressive Society. In Crossed (Dutton, 2011), Cassia found Ky, the boy she's in love with but who's not her Match, after he disappeared into the Outer Provinces. He is now a pilot with the Rising. Cassia's back in Central working as a human computer algorithm sorting people into their Matches while secretly trading snippets of forbidden poetry with the Archivists and working to create a forum where people can openly share their art. Xander, Cassia's official Match, is an Officer and Physic in the Society, trusted with making sure that babies receive their immunizations but secretly replacing these pills with others that prevent disease and memory loss. When a plague created by the Society spreads out of control, Ky is asked to help fly cures into the impacted cities. The Rising is using this plague to show that they can save the people. Not everyone is immune to the plague and soon a pandemic breaks out, sickening many, including Ky. Unless Cassia, Xander, and Oker, a 90-year-old doctor who escaped being killed by the Society at age 80, can figure out a cure, the Rising will fail and the Provinces will fall apart. Fans who want closure will love this last book in the series that effectively combines action, romance, science, philosophy, and the arts.--Sharon Rawlins, New Jersey State Library, Trentonα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

The uprising begins so quickly in the finale of Condie’s Matched trilogy that Cassia, Ky, and Xander barely have enough time to register what is happening. Ky is still in the outer provinces, flying planes and waiting for orders. Cassia is now in the heart of the society, working as a sorter in Central and looking for clues that covertly signal the start of the rebellion. Xander works as a medical official and notes the beginnings of an outbreak: the plague that’s been engineered by the leader of the Rising, the Pilot, which only the Pilot himself can cure. In this powerful series send-off, Condie ignites a race against the clock to find a cure and, along the way, tests the beliefs of her weary protagonists and studies the moral implications of biological warfare. Even through trials, the love triangle between Cassia, Ky, and Xander remains fiercely romantic, poignant, and heartrending. There is an expected happy ending tucked neatly into the aftermath, sure to gladden fans eagerly anticipating this thought-provoking climax. Grades 9-12. --Courtney Jones

An excellent ending to an incredible trilogy, REACHED ties everything together in ways you'll never see coming. As with the previous novels, Condie's writing remains fluid, unhurried, and poetic with each line, each page. In REACHED, Condie gives readers a chance to know and learn more about Xander as a new narrator, in addition to Cassia and Ky's points-of-view. All three narrations are strong and each voice is authentic to each character, making it easy to always know who is narrating at any given point. Within the Society, life has changed - and continues to change - drastically for all three characters as a deadly plague spreads and each character comes closer to choosing their future.

Overall, this conclusion to the MATCHED Trilogy is gripping, romantic, exciting, and surprising. Anyone who hesitates reading this trilogy because of the love triangle is missing out, because these books are about more than two young men and a girl struggling to choose between them (in fact, it's quite different from that). These books are about freedom, fighting for what you believe in, and so much more. Condie's writing is evocative and engaging for each point-of-view. All in all, REACHED is an outstanding conclusion that will captivate readers until the very last page.

HIGHLIGHTS: I enjoyed how Condie tied everything together in this novel - a few moments that seemed inconsequential in previous books became extremely important in this story. This story surprised me a few times, and I loved the three distinct points of view - it was nice to finally get to know more about Xander's character. Character growth, especially Cassia's character.

LOWLIGHTS: Very slow going and character-focused, which is to be expected from Condie's writing.

I remember picking up "Matched", the first book of the dystopian trilogy by Allie Condie, at a bookstore on a summer day. I read the first few chapters... and was instantly hooked. A girl living in a society where you're matched with a fiance according to commonalities, and two hotties to boot? We've got a keeper! I devoured the first book, read the second, and finally got to the end of the last...and it sure took a while.

After leaving the Society and finding each other, Cassia and Ky are now part of the Rising on the brink of a rebellion. When the Plague that the Rising used to rise to power spreads uncontrollably, infecting and killing hundreds of people, Cassia, Ky and Xander are faced with a new challenge: of finding a cure to save everyone.

I have to say I was pretty disappointed with the "Reached", especially because I just fell in love with the first book! It was incredibly, incredibly slow. The pace was just plain plodding, and barely anything happened. Thinking back on the plot of the book, I can only think of maybe two really important events, and even they weren't riveting at all. I ended up skimming a lot of the parts because they were mostly just unnecessary and seemed to be there to fill up the space.

Another thing that bummed me out were the boring characters. Sure, I get that Cassia, Ky and Xander were developed as characters mostly in the first two books of the trilogy, but they were just not fun to be with, not one bit. It was interesting to be in Xander's perspective for a change, and I guess the change in him was somewhat more active, but it was still a little boring. I did like, however, the introduction of new characters like Lei, and the more fiery characters like Indie.

I have loved this series so much. It's been hard to believe that I'm letting it go. Crossed was one of my favorite books last year, and I was nervous going into this final installment. Finales can be so tricky.

Like the rest of the books in this series, Reached brings something different to the dystopian table. It's not as violent or bloody as say, The Hunger Games, or even Divergent. What has happened in the Matched society isn't on it's face horrible and oppressive. Many of the citizens of the society live very happy lives. But there is no creative and no expression. There is no progression. And humanity really can't stand for that for long, can they? Thus, some may be disappointed that this installment is not driven by the events happening within the Rising, but is really focused on the characters.

For those who love Xander, there is much more of him in this novel to love. There is a resolution to the love triangle, and I think that it works very well within the story arc. As for who ultimately ends up with Cassia? All I'll say is half of the people that love the series will be disappointed, and the other half will be elated.

I'm not sure that I've mentioned this before, but one of the things that I love about this series is that it makes poetry accessible to a cold-hearted soul like myself. Honestly, I am such a poetry dunce. I believe to really understand and love poetry, you have to be taught by someone who really loves and understands poetry. And, it's obvious that Condie loves poetry. So, maybe there is hope for me yet.

Reached is a beautiful conclusion to the series, and I can't wait to see what else Condie has in store for her future work.
