Sep 23, 2011

it was ok

I heard mixed reviews about Matched, so when i downloaded the audio book i was a bit skeptical. This book was a tough read for me,and i did not enjoy it at all.

I feel like the plot went in circles, characters were unrealistic and annoying and the mood of the book was flat. There is not much i can say about the book without sounding like I'm bashing it, and that is not my intention.

One redeeming quality about this book was that the author did have some nice writing in places, but her overall story telling was not my favorite.

I do not recommend this book, nor do i plan on reading the squeal.

My rating: 2.5

Jordan I've had this book for awhile & need to read it. There's just so many books to read. How are you liking it so far? I've heard a lot of mixed reviews.

Carcass DO you like this one? I hear a lot about it being good, but also bad. Do you like it?

Kara So far it's bearable, but only just. I hope it gets better

Jordan Oh yeah, I hear the love triangle's a bit annoying.

message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Love triangles can be annoying if you write them the wrong way. Interesting they are..they just have to be written the right way

Kara i agree, this book just didn't work for me
