Good book - my only complaint is that it seemed that the author tried to hard to make certain paragraphs and sections of the book sound like "poetry" - so "romantic" comparison to the wind, moon, sun, grass, etc. etc. etc.... It was a bit difficult to follow the correlations she was trying to make.... But once I pulled those sections out of my head, I like the story much better. Overall a GREAT read. ( )

This is a good middle book. It reveals some background information and gets the characters closer to where they want to be. I'm listening to the audiobook and this time the narration switches between Cassia and Ky. I'm looking forward to book 3. ( )

The main characters are on the run ... How did this manage to be such a slow read? I expected a frantic, erratic, harried read, but I found myself bored and wading through verbal mud to crawl to the finish.
I expected so much more after the first novel. How did this happen? ( )

Did not like this one nearly as much as the first one. ( )

I had some mixed feeling about the first book, Matched, but the ending was very open and very few questions were answered so I decided to give this book a try.

It felt as if nothing happened in this book. There's talk about art and a lot of - forbidden- poetry, there's talk about rebellion. There's that stupid love triangle again, getting more complex throughout the book. It's basically just people in search for each other, love and a rebellion.

And Vick, the only character I actually like in this series, gets killed, for no particular reason at all, it appears.

Now, I'm not sure. I always like to finish my series, and it's not so bad that I don't want to know how it's going to end. But I'm not overfilled with excitement to start reading Reached, what if it's turns out to be more of the same? ( )

First words
I'm standing in a river. It's blue. Dark blue. Reflecting the color of the evening sky. I don't move. The river does. It pushed against me and hisses through the grass at the water's edge.

Book description
In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.
Haiku summary
