The fart was this I justthe FART WAS THIS That beautiful cover is mean It drew me right in with its pretty lime green bubble bait of death Can t help wanting to have some of my favorite color on my reading shelf Hnnnnng It said, READ ME OR I WILL MURDER YOU FAMILY And I bought it so it d stop glaring at me in the teeny bopper section of BN.I opened Matched, and snails came at me with their shells and antennae of slime and grime and chime and dime SNAILS EVERYWHERE I couldn t move, I couldn t breathe, I was forced to understand things that weren t first explained It was horrible I tell you Matched tells the story of Cassia Reyes, robot extraordinaire, who lives in this nameless City run by the Society It has a Hill, an Arboretum, and Outer Provinces, and special emergency tablets , but don t worry, they re not dove into right away, so you re supposed to know all about this place right the fuck away Thankfully, Cassia finds it necessary to tell us about this Matching ceremony that binds people together for life but teens have flings anyway so how is this Matching accurate Then Cassia gets her Match her bff, Xander Carrow, cool kid, the best of the best She goes Yay But then, a NEW FACE APPEARS SHIT It s this kid that she knows named Ky Markham, who s an Aberration, you know, people who s parents got an Infraction and now the kids are screwed too or something Whatever, forbidden love all around Take it in folks But Cassia simply must know why the Society fudged up, and thus says, Looks like it s up to ME Let s burn this little suckah down to the GROUND WHERE IT BELONGS Writing I will give a nod to Ally Condie for not completely fucking up the style in this book There was some nice prose, especially with the scenes with Ky and Cassia writing poetry while hiking OH BUT WAIT, we discuss later in this book that even though these citzens can read and operate computers, they can t write Someone tells me how that makes sense and I ll give them a cookie or something Until then, fook that noise.Another point on the writing was the pacing The snail pace of Matched was the exact reason why I ran to Vladdy Tod, said HOLD ME SWEET LORD , finished it in a day, cried my heart out figuratively, then stumbled back into this mess There was nothing exciting going on in this book I ll give a bone to Condie for providing some nice romantic scenes and one scene where I actually had a small sense of grief, but everything else was robotic, plain, and uninteresting Even good old Robot Jones hadpersonality than most characters in the beginning of this novel.SPEAKING OF CHARACTERS WHO ARE ROBOTIC, how about that Cassia Reyes Or hell, the entire Reyes family Molly and Abran Reyes are just drones to the Society in the beginning Mr Reyes gets better later on, and even Cassia does, too I mean, she even makes strong, good decisions STUNNING INDEED Bram was adorable though, I ll give Condie that too.Xander and Ky were the two dudes in this pain stakingly unnecessary love triangle, but then again, what is YA without one right It must be some new required rule that I could give less than a fuck about Moving on, the good thing the ONLY good thing is that both of these guys aren t abusive, douchey, lust filled, or cocky They are normal guy friends with Cassia and THANK YOU LORD FOR BLESSING ME THAT MUCH Sadly, the need for this love triangle is never seen to me I just see that forbidden love nonsense and another boy is hopelessly in the way.Xander teased Cassia in a best friend way, he was nice and smart and tried to live in the Society with no problems He never wanted anything bad or maddening to happen he just wanted the ordinary life of being Matched But no, Cassia couldn t have that So she sneaks around with Ky.But it s with Ky that she can actually evolve from a robot into a real girl Ky is a rare catch cause he can write He likes poetry I bet he plays guitar and sings songs in the forbidden lands that are mentioned once and never again Ky is a good character He s not trying to get Cassia to fall for him, and he has a nice personality.Ms Robot remained just that all throughout this book except for the times she was with Ky Ky saved her from my strangles She should be lucky But again, when she does develop, she is a good character She is strong, she does what is right when she has to And shockingly enough She s not an idiot That may take a few seconds to sink inbut I ll wait.So what blew this up for me What killed this book Le structure There is close to nothing Structure is nearly dead It was horrifying and I wished the snails holding me to this book would at least grant me a half assed story with the somewhat nice characters made by Condie But no, I was not given that.If there was anything set up correctly in this book I would be alright with things happening the way they were BUT THERE WAS NO CLIMAX NOTHING THAT DROVE THIS ENTIRE BOOK OTHER THAN CASSIA S RELATIONSHIP WITH KY Sure, it was cute, but there has to be a bigger story than romance This is dystopian, gimme GODDAMN FUCKING DYSTOPIAN This is why I can t handle those fucking triangles Even a square would beentertaining for Boba Fett s sake And the antagonistswhere were they The whole Society is the antagonist Doy B No no no, I m talking about that ONE ROADBLOCK that means to drive Cassia into Hell, preferably on a motorcycle HAHAHAHA, I m not funny There is that one person who drives to destroy Cassia s hopes and dreams and gigglesnort the hell out of it later Now that character does exist, but I think Condie had a tough time with names or something This lady was a single Official, one that bothered the shit out of Cassia What was her name, you ask THERE WASN T ONE SHE WAS NO NAME Ol No Name.How What KSJDBfLKJSBDGKLA She actually has a name Courtesy of commenter Alejandra, her name was Officer Standler, which is mentioned once and only once But Who s the real antagonist The ACTUAL ONE It s not Cassia vs the entire fucking Society, is it Jesus fuck, that doesn t make ANY SENSE.They shouldn t be trusted, I got that, but how can we tell if the Society wants Cassia dead or whatever when we don t even know the head honcho of the Society Or why there s an Official for EVERY PERSON LIVING That s like saying there s a soldier for every citizen in the United States WE DON T KNOW WE HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE CONDIE AIN T TELLING Give us a mention or something I need to know things.Brings me to that anti climactic ending Cassia moves on with her life view spoiler to find Ky cause the Officials took him away somewhere and is in trouble lol hide spoiler Official TranscriptsJune 21, 2001 AOL Chatroom AuthorTalkACondieHottie Oh my gosh Lois Lowry You re actually online 2timeNewbery Sigh Hello, Allie.ACondieHottie It s

ACondieHottie I can t seem to create any tension in my book ACondieHottie Do u create tension by setting the story in the future Because The Giver is set in the future, and it is really tense ACondieHottie What if I capitalized random words Does that create tension or uncertainty Maybe that s what they ll do in the Future ACondieHottie Kissing is not Allowed in the Society ACondieHottie

As seen on The ReadventurerFirst thing first I think Ally Condie owes at least half of her seven figure paycheck to Lois Lowry The entire dystopian world is lifted directly from Lowry s The Giver Almost everything interesting in Matched is very familiar the idea of highly controlled Society the Community in The Giver , the prearranged Matches, uniform clothing, the pills suppressing emotions, predetermination of everyone s life course, euthanized elderly, regulated personal possessions, the precision of the language, the family structure The list goes on and on What Condie adds of her own is too often doesn t make much sense people are not allowed can t write, but they know how to read and operate computers Matches and procreation are controlled but teens can still snog around a bit and what is the sorting job all about, I still have no idea I am not the biggest fan of The Giver our there, but that novel had a horrifying, structured, world hiding behind its simplistic language What hides behind the words of Matched is sheer emptiness And boredom and unoriginality If all borrowed dystopian ideas are stripped away, what is left is a tepid, G rated teen romance affair with an obligatory love triangle and magical love connections Even the male love interests are the same old tired cliches a sweet and loyal best friend type and a mysterious, hurt, emo type quoting poetry Yawn Yawn Yawn Ally Condie s writing is serviceable enough So are the characters No male character requires a restraining order against him, no female a head check for putting up with abusive crap But is this and a pretty cover really a recipe for success these days There is nothing in this novel to get excited over There is no urgency to Condie s writing, no passion Just dull characters, dull relationships, dull conflicts, dull conversationsI can t whole heartedly recommend this book to anyone, it simply doesn t offer anything new or noteworthy But some fans of lukewarm romance driven stories like Birthmarked or Beautiful Creatures might enjoy it I suppose Do I really need to say I am not coming back forP.S Apparently, Disney picked it up for development WHY
