Matched - Ally Condie I did not know what I was getting myself into when I bought this book. But I am so glad I did. I could not put this book down. I still do not know what exactly it is that makes this such an interesting read. But it just has that "IT" factor that causes you to not lose interest in this world by other standards, nothing really overt or boom! in ur face happens. But u still feel as though you've been smacked right in the face regardless.

Imagine a place where everything about you.. Your clothes, your food, your mate, your job, your family, your hobbies & free time. Everything in ur life is already set & chosen.. Just not by you. Scary right? And I don't mean scary like in a divine way. Like , we all know God is our maker, our Father, our Creator. The one our lives belong to. I mean scary like a whole Society is formed by man. And it's this society that makes these choices for you and about you and about everything you have ever known or ever will know. About who you will and are allowed to love. They even decide when you die.

This book is awesome. It asks some serious questions. Scary ones. This story is romantic & thought provoking. And the love & journey that these main characters experience will break your heart and make you want to fight with or for them. I want to know more about this world and how and why and when it comes to a close. So I am eager to read the 2nd installment of this new trilogy. Read this one. I highly recommend it.
