Matched - audiobook

Product Details

I finished it and I loved it!!!  Kate Simses did a wonderful job with her reading of Ally Condie's Matched.  She made it easy to listen to, unlike many audiobooks that I have heard.  This is a fun dystopian book with a little romance.  It is also very thought provoking.  Cassia goes through her "matching" ceremony where she finds who the Society has matched her with to be her future husband.  The Society doesn't make mistakes...or do they?   The Society is control of everything...or are they?  In this book, we find ourselves considering what life would be like without choices, without freedom, without creativity, and, therefore, without independence. 

I purchased Crossed, the second of the Matched trilogy, and started reading it last night.  I read until I could no longer hold my eyes open.  I couldn't put it down, which I love!  So far, so - great!  This book has a lot more action, and I find that I am not rooting for a particular character, but for the pure survival of the rebels of the Society. 
Here is Penguin Young Reader's book trailer.
