A good summer read! I enjoyed this trilogy of YA books. They are a quick read with a story line that will have you engaged in the characters and needing to know the resolution to their journey. Allie Condie writes with finesse and gives care to the development of her characters. Happy Reading

I was completely and immediately sucked into this series. I read the second book in two sittings and had to force myself to draw out the third installment as to delay my end-of-series depression! I am not a YA but loved The Hunger Games and The Host, which are in this same vein. Highly recommend this series!

The Matched trilogy is a great series that kept me reading late into the night and fretting over the characters dilemmas when I had put it down. The story and characters have maintained a constant presence in my mind long after I finished reading all three books, which, to me, indicates a great story. The characters are complex. I didn't always understand, or agree with, their choices but after some thought I realized how wonderful they were, in that, in a society that has complete control they chose for themselves and allowed the ones they love to choose, too. They all made mistakes but learned from them, growing into stronger individuals. The plot kept me guessing, as well. I thought the series was going to go a certain way after book one, but went on a completely different path that was pleasantly surprising for me.   I was a little disappointed that my copy of Reached wasn't signed like the description said it would be.

I heard a lot about Ally Condie's books in the "Matched trilogy", read the reviews, but didn't get too excited...UNTIL I PICKED THEM UP & STARTED TO READ!! I didn't know if the books would keep me interested...would they stimulate the reader's mind and imagination? Can an adult reader be entertained and enthralled with these books? And the answer to all of my questions was YES, YES and ABSOLUTELY YES!!! Condie has done an amazing job creating a wonderful dystopian story line that doesn't ruin the innocence of young readers or the imagination of older readers. She grabs you and immerses you in the lives of the Society and that which may not be as fond for some. She gives life to her characters and makes the reader find a bond and understanding with each one. I also loved that Condie didn't have to overpower her delicious writing with sexual content, graphic deaths of young adults, but instead drew the reader in with emotive language. I am a HUGE fan and cannot wait to read more from this amazing author! Thank you, Ally Condie!

I was in need of new reading materials when I came across this trilogy. I purchased the first book and started reading, and I kept reading....couldn't put it down. Naturally, I had to read the whole series. I liked that there was a love triangle, but was glad that it turned out the way it did in the end.

If you are looking for a series about choice and how lucky we are to have a choice then you have come to the right place. With a little bit of romance and a pinch of the way of life you've got the Matched trilogy!
