Book Review Matched by Ally Condie


In the Society, officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s hardly any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one…until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.

Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic.

Jan Review

This book was really interesting i felt that it echoed the thoughts of the giver a controlled society where you taught what to do, say and think.  They have rules and traditions that must be followed.  In this series they focus on the matched process where you are matched with the person they feel you are most compatible with now that would be fine if you had the choice to reject it and move on but you don’t once you are matched that it.  I really was drawn in with the twist of but what if you were told it could be someone else other then the one they showed you the first time.  Would you question all of reality then? A very good start to this series.
