Finally, the long awaited conclusion in the Matched trilogy! It was just released November 13 and it was worth the wait. I had preordered this one to be waiting on my doorstep on the 13th when I got home from work.
There are several things that really impressed me about Ally Condie's third book. First and foremost, I just love her writing style. It is so eloquent. She is gifted with such a poetic way of writing. I can visualize her scenes very easily, yet I never feel like I'm reading huge paragraphs of boring descriptions. Second, I loved the alternating chapters of Cassia, Ky, and Xander. I missed Xander in Crossed and enjoyed his return to Reached. Third, Ally Condie started answering some of my many burning questions in the first few pages. That was exciting! Yet, she kept the twists and turns coming, so I was never free from wondering and questioning. I thought this book did a marvelous job of "sorting things out". It is the first in the series to get 5 stars on Goodreads from me.
Here is the book trailer from Penguin Young Readers.
