Review: Matched - Ally Condie
Summary: Cassia is a teenage girl who lives in the future where America has been broken and made in to the "Society" that controls basically everything you do (eat, sleep, work.) The "Matching" system pairs teenagers with a life partner to date for a few years, then marry and have children, all within an expected time frame. Her world is turned upside down when she's accidentally matched two boys, one that's not within accepted "Society" citizens for pairing due to a sketchy past.
Review: Eh, I expected more out of this book. It doesn't compare to Hunger Games, even though its similar in context. The plot was slow, there was very little drama or suspense, and the romance was unbelievable. I was a teenager once, and boys just aren't that nice or romantic. I won't be reading the sequel, I'm simply not interested in finding out what happens next. My opinion? Don't waste your time. Sorry Ms. Condie....
