Read from June 25 to 26, 2013

One of the most disappointing endings to a trilogy/series I have read. Not that it wasn't written well (Condie's flowery, descriptive prose was at its frilliest here), but I felt that the elements present in the novel (view spoiler) were only because she couldn't figure out how to end the series. Plus, I feel that the author's preoccupation with love (I know, I know, I willingly picked up this series called "Matched") is sooooo misplaced in this serires. It really isn't the be all and end all of life. I was hoping one of the characters would come to this realization and struggle harder for truth and beauty instead of just smoochies. Oh well.
