** spoiler alert ** This is one of those kids books that I never read as a kid and am reading now for a children's literature class. I just finished it and I wish I would have read it years ago. This is such a great book. The whole time I was trying to figure out what they were looking for and why Stanley's story kept getting interrupted with side notes on Kate Barlow and Sam and that whole story. Maybe I should have, but I did not see the ending coming at all. This story is really all about fate. I think anybody of any age could read this book and be entertained.
A little slow to start, but got better. Stayed up way too late because I couldn't put it down.
Matched felt like a Hunger Games copycat in many ways. It takes the futuristic dystopian society in a different direction and there is no physical violence, but other than that, it feels quite similar. Nonetheless, it is well written and has an interesting romantic triangle problem. I wonder if Cassia will become one of the figureheads or leaders in the upcomming revolution. Wait until the next installment.
not as good as blue highways, but the same sort of story
