My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I must admit that at first I dreaded embarking on yet another dystopian world book. After a while they can become a little formulaic. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this one! Matched is the story of a future world where all information is controlled. Condie does an interesting job building up the characters and weaving in enough romance for the reader. The main character Cassia starts by trusting the system she is living in. The story begins with her attending her “match” ceremony where the powers that be announce her future husband. Soon though, she uncovers a secret and embarks on a journey to figure out the truth. Although the ending was a little weak and disappointing, I would definitely recommend this book to fantasy/romance readers.
