5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection!, November 15, 2012

This review is from: Reached (Matched Trilogy Book 3) (Hardcover)
I stumbled across Matched a few months ago and was instantly sucked into Cassia's world, eagerly devouring the first and second books not once but twice each. I have been counting the DAYS until the release of the third and final installment in the series. So many questions left unanswered at the end of Crossed and I've been DYING to know what happened! I'm happy to say that Reached did not disappoint.

I love Condie's writing style--so lyrical, you could get lost in the loveliness of her prose, yet the plot and characters are so interesting you almost forget how beautiful the writing is because you're so wrapped up in the story! And there were a few completely surprising plot twists in this book that I did not at all see coming.

I liked the Hunger Games, I loved Divergent, and I absolutely am ENTHRALLED with this series. I like it much better than the other two. We get to explore some heavy themes and even darkness in the hearts of man, without the gritty and overtly bloody violence that the other two pivot on.

I'm not very big on love triangles, but this one did not annoy me in the least. In fact one of my favorite things about this series is that we get to hear first from Ky (in Crossed) and then Ky and Xander as well as Cassia in Reached. There are very few authors who can so skillfully put a reader inside the heads of multiple characters, and Condie does it very well. I never had any confusion on who was talking and I very much enjoyed getting to hear what Xander and Ky were thinking. Love, love, LOVED the multiple points of view.

Highly recommend this series. I can't wait to start from the beginning and read them all over AGAIN!
