Review of Matched by Ally Condie

by Cindy H | Oct 21, 2016
Cassia is so excited because she is finally going to discover who her Match is for the first time. Cassia lives in a world where everything is dictated by the Society, from what you eat, to where you work, to who you spend the rest of your life with. She has been waiting for this day her entire life. When her Match is revealed she is ecstatic, the person is everything she could have hoped for. Unfortunately it seems that the Society has more in store for her, however, and things will never go back to the simplicity she once knew.

I enjoyed this book. I really like books about worlds that are like our own but slightly different (often called dystopian novels). This book reminds me of a mixture of Lois Lowry's "The Giver" and Kiera Cass' "Selection" series. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a great story about life, romance, growing up, and making difficult choices. This book is part of a series, so if you enjoy it you should check out the next book, "Crossed".
