Overall Rating: 3 stars
Addiction Level: I read it when I had spare time.
Believe-ability: It was believable.
Dystopia Factor: The world has been turned upside down and all hope is lost, but maybe our hero/heroine can save it.
Reached is the conclusion of the Matched series. Overall I was satisfied with it, because it concluded the series very nicely.
I have struggled with writing my review. I feel like I can sum up the series in two sentences, and I owe to you dear Reader to write more. In the midst of fitful sleep I realized why I like not love this series. I do not feel deeply connected to the characters. I do not dream about them or wonder what they would do. I do not have series ending grief/depression like I did with The Hunger Games or Harry Potter. I am done.
Before I am completely done, let me tell you what I liked. I liked how Cassia, Ky, and Xander’s stories were concluded. The love triangle is resolved. I liked getting more of Xander’s story. After Crossed I really wanted to hear more of his story. As I read I had hoped the Rising would be better. It is slightly, but overall the Society and the Rising are similar.
Condie leaves the story on a positive note. Loose ends are tied up. The characters are ready to start a new journey. Like them I am ready for a new adventure.
