Book Review of "Matched" by Ally Condie

The society runs your life, from the little things like what you wear and eat to the big things like who you marry and when you die.

Matching takes place at the age of seventeen when officials collect data from their database to match you with your most compatible partner whom you will then marry at the age of twenty one.

Cassia is thrilled when she is matched with Xander, her childhood companion, but soon begins to second guess the society when she sees not only Xander's face appear on screen but also another childhood acquaintance, Ky after the screen has faded to black. The society tells her that it was a glitch, but Cassia can't help but doubt the societies infallibility ... if they are wrong about the matching then what else might they be wrong about?

This book was predictable, the relationship felt forced and unrealistic, but it was a okay read overall. I didn't find myself caring for any of the characters other then Cassia's grandfather, who quite honestly felt like the best developed character in the entire book despite his small part in it.

My Rating: 3.5 Stars
