Matched (Matched #1)Matched by Ally Condie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I LOVED this book. Disney got the rights to turn it to film and I cant wait. Some people seem disappointed that Disney has it, but I think it is awesome. Disney has the money to put behind it and Disney made "Pirates of the Caribean" which is awesome and has many great effects.

This book reminded me of Hunger Games , but only when it comes to the government that is called the Society. Otherwise , the storyline is entirely different and unique. Atleast, I have never read anything like this story. It starts out very interesting from the beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book. The last third of the book I refused to put it down until I had read to the end! LOL I had to know how it ended. There will be two other books coming in this series and i am anxious to get them. I like where the author choose to end the first book but it def. makes u hungry for more!

The cover is beautiful and the green dress has special meaning in the story which i love. So many times the cover doesnt make any connection to the book, but this very much does!

A MUST read!

I liked the book, but didn't love it. In the beginning it seemed like a really cookie cutter dystopian YA romance. but I stuck with it and was pleasantly surprised. For most of the book I didn't like the main character because she was almost unrealistically naive and gullible. The ending was what really got me to like it. Basically she goes from being a scared little girl, to ready to go Rambo. I'm totally excited for the next book.
As for Disney making the movie, it'll either be really good like Pirates of the Caribbean, or crap like Race to Witch Mountain. Only time will tell.
