I'm getting kind of bored. I love it but the ending, I felt that it wasn't an ending at all. Matched Matched, 1 , Ally Condie Matched, by Ally Condie, is the first novel in the Matched trilogy. It was what kept me reading, along with the flawlessness of this serene Society which Ally Condie has created. I love the idea but there were just so many things about the story that made me feel it never really took off and reached it's full potential. Later, the boxes wil be used to hold the rings for the Marriage Contract. Cassia was selfish, and dull.
I know, I'm 27, and I'm not supposed to give a shit about teenage romance. I enjoyed every little part of it. There was some nice prose, especially with the scenes with Ky and Cassia writing poetry while hiking. This is somewhat new in dystopian literature and I admire Condie for thoroughly exploring the gray areas and not portraying the Society as the source of all evil. Now, I use it to hold the three emergency tablets that everyone carries—one green, one blue, one red. The City Officials smile proudly at us, and my heart swel s as we enter the Rotunda. As Cassia attempts to figure out the source of the mishap, she finds herself conflicted about whether her Match is appropriate for her - and whether the Society is all that it seems to be.
This is 1984 for teens, and it works. Have u ever been in love? I will say, though, I loved her Grandad from Cassia's first conversation with him, I found him cute and lovable - far more intriguing than any other character. Great sounding plot, am I right? Look at all the people! I think owes at least half of her seven-figure paycheck to. I would say this book was ok and it wasn't awful just kind of to young for my liking. Now, I use it to hold the three emergency tablets that everyone carries—one green, one blue, one red. I had forgotten most of this plot, so it was fun to see it be almost new. She looks worried, however, and she keeps twisting her artifact, a jeweled red bracelet.
Then Cassia gets her Match: her bff, Xander Carrow, cool kid, the best of the best. I loved the romance in this one, I thought it was very natural and very well done. There is a system, of course, to the Matching. It's a trailer I watched on Youtube, and I was intrigued about it. I never fully grasped Cassie or Xander or Ky beyond a general characterization, but my fear for the characters and curiosity about the love triangle was strong enough to make me keep turning pages. Ky is a rare catch cause he can write! Next to me, my mother and father each draw a breath as City Hal comes into view, lit up white and blue and sparkling with the special occasion lights that indicate a celebration is taking place.
Every character had less personality than a paper bag. What hides behind the words of is sheer emptiness. . It is strange how we hold on to the pieces of the past while we wait for our futures. At first I was uncomfortable with her mellow, almost childish voice, but as I got to know Cassia, I realized that it fits her perfectly.
So, because of this, the disappointment fell even heavier. I need to know things. Matched Matched 1 Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love. It wil be the first time I hear his name.
This one also had a clever way to set up the necessary love triangle. The fact that the matches were so sucessful most of the time was the biggest let down for me. He never wanted anything bad or maddening to happen; he just wanted the ordinary life of being Matched. I wanted to know more about all the Hundred Everythings, why and how it happened. Donec scelerisque, urna id tincidunt ultrices, nisi nisl lacinia mi, at pellentesque enim mi eu felis.
Didn't feel for the guy at all, since all he seemed to want was for somebody to feel sorry for him. How do u create tension in a book? Not because it was a great book per say, but more because it was a very fast and easy read. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but at any point in the book was it specified what you use sorting for??? I even had to take a break from it completely, and I only kept reading because of the encouragement from others that had read it, insisting that it would get better. But a girl can dream. I know nothing about the Society or why it became that way, and why they think it's better like that.
