I wasn't sure what to think of this at first and since I don't have as much time now, all my reviews will be pretty short. But I don't think I need a lot of words for this to be honest.

Sitting here nearly two months later I honestly can't say I remember much of what happened. So anyone reading this needn't fear the wrath of spoilers. Honestly, If I remember correctly there was one major revelation and then nothing and I felt like I was reading a lot of stuff that I found irrelevant.

I'm really sorry to sum this book up into one word, because god I loved Matched, but I found this book, well, boring.
It wasn't all doom and gloom and the writing was well done and the characters portrayed brilliantly but it lacked a lot of depth, action and development of plot.

Will I read Reached? Of course I will. I have high hopes for it and I really want to know how this trilogy ends so yes I'm hoping really badly that Miss Condie can pull off an epic third book.

Alexandra (AlexEatsBooks) Oh dear, I don't like the sound of that... :S

Leanne Bell I was surprised too, it's not that it's awful just that there's nothing really good. bizarre. I think the best way i can put it is that bar from a couple of bits of info, u cud probably skip this and read the third. Maybe it's just me
