While I gave the first book 5 stars, I was sad to say that this one rated only 3. It wasn't nearly as fascinating nor intricate as Matched, the plot wasn't as interesting and as is so often the case with a second book in a trilogy, it was very obviously a transitory novel. In fact, I guessed that it had to be a trilogy before reading it, simply because of the style of Crossed.

It managed to keep me well enough entertained, but I was in no way blown away by it. I wonder whether or not the last book in the trilogy will be able to live up to the first tone, or if it'll be like Matrix in book form.

Samantha what do you think so far?


Maria Elmvang Pretty good. I liked the first one better, but it seems okay.


Samantha I liked the 1st one better too. This one is more like "The Hunger Games" only less violent
