Matched is a watered down version of The Hunger Games(THG)plain and simple. Actually, it might even be a teen romance set in the future, rather than an action book, which THG clearly is.

It is not nearly as "serious" as THG, and the boy/girl interactions seem more suited for a Christian bookstore shelf. I think this is a book for younger readers that is attempting to be marketed for the older YA crowd. If you LOVED The Hunger Gamesyou will probably enjoy this book, but will be dissapointed at its slow pace and obviously "set for sequels" ending.

If you are looking for something a little lighter, this book is a simple, easy to read romance set in the future that hints at things to come in the series. If it is any indication, it took me MONTHS to get around to finishing this book.
