I enjoyed this book. It was a different twist on the future dystopian society books that have been popular lately. It's not all war war war its more about love and becoming who you are. I absolutely loved the characters and the storyline. It was simply a wonderful book and series.

Dystopian romance under a totalitarian government...LOVED it! A love story that celebrates romance rather than graphic depictions of sex. A young adult novel that I enjoyed and felt good about recommending to my daughter. This was my favorite book from the trilogy, but you can't finish one without longing for the next.

This is an interesting and quick read about a utopian/dystopian society where the government, here called The Society, controls and decides every aspect of it's citizen's lives. Cancer, heart disease, and birth defects have all been eradicated. Because of natural selection people now live longer, healthier lives. Your job, where you live, and your ideal match for a mate are all chosen for you. Free will and choice no longer exist. What happens if you rebel, want to choose your own path, or question things you shouldn't be questioning? What if you are matched with your best friend who you love, but fall in love with someone else, an aberration who is not allowed to be matched?

This book was fantastic. Even though it's geared toward young adult readers, and I'm definitely not a young adult anymore, I found this to be an engrossing, and enjoyable read. It reminded me a lot of The Giver, which is one my favorite books. Like The Giver, Matched makes you think about what freedoms you would be willing to give up to live in a "perfect" world.
