When I started Matched, I wasn’t sure I would enjoy reading yet another love-triangle centered book, but I still decided to give it a try. I’m very glad I did. While there is a love triangle, it is not focused on, rather, it only adds to the confusion Cassia feels regarding how her world is run. She decides almost nothing, and for many years, she never questioned that. In Matched, a few things shake her and make her start to really think about if her life is really her own.
Both guys in the book are wonderful. One is her best friend and supposed match, and the other is someone she’s seen, but never really noticed. Her best friend is safe, and she knows she’d be happy if she followed society’s rules, but once she realizes what else is out there, through Ky, she wants more.
The ending was enough to hold me over until the next book, and I can’t wait until it’s released and I have it in my hands.
