Reached Ally Condie (Matched #3)
After leaving Society to desperately seek The Rising, and each other, Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again. Cassia is assigned undercover in Central city, Ky outside the borders, an airship pilot with Indie. Xander is a medic, with a secret. All too soon, everything shifts again.
This is the third book in the Matched series. It was every bit as beautiful, engrossing, and unputdownable as the other two in the series. I still think Book 1 was probably my favorite, but this one tied all of the plot points up neatly, or as neatly as possible. All of the characters got an ending that left me feeling satisfied.
I love reading YA and YA dystopias in particular and I must say, this is by far the most beautiful and poetic of all the series. Most YA novels make do with work-horse language, with the occasional profound, quotable moment. This one is littered with it. I suppose some people might find that annoying, but I love it: you CAN blend stellar, action-packed plot with elevated and beautiful language.
Overall, this is definitely not a series to miss!
Have you read this series? Or this book in particular? Leave me a comment below!
I loved the first book, but I was really disappointed with this one. It’s been a long time since I read it so I don’t remember a lot of specifics, but I remember it really let me down. I did like the addition of Xander’s POV though.
ooooo that’s good news! I’ve read the first two and loved them. I’m a sucker for dystopian societies. I’ve been waiting to get the third until it comes on paperback (I prefer hardback BUT I also prefer my books to look the same on my shelf, and the first two are in paper back lol)
Haha I totally understand the need to match!
Great series. The writing is brilliant, but often I felt like the plot was too disconnected and slow. However, it was still a good ending to a series, and I enjoyed it. Nice review!
It had a dream-like quality I thought..not as high energy as something like the Hunger Games or Divergent series.
Adding it to the list! 🙂
