Matched (Matched, #1)
May 15, 2011
Matched is another of those young adult novels that I've heard about at every turn and figured I needed to see what all the fuss was about. The hold list at the library has been long for quite some time, so I was surprised when I found a copy on the shelf last week. I didn't even read the summary on the dust jacket, so I really had no idea what it was about and just dived in. Turns out, the society in which the characters live is straight out of Lois Lowry's The Giver, and the love story is awfully reminiscent of Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series. Since I enjoyed both of those books, I won't necessarily say that's a bad thing, just not very original. There's really not much substance in Matched, but it's an easy read worthy of being deemed a somewhat enjoyable time-waster.
