about

The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times Bestselling Matched Trilogy!
 
Perfect for fans of 1984, Brave New World, Black Mirror, and The Handmaid’s Tale.

Cassia’s journey began with an error, a momentary glitch in the otherwise perfect façade of the Society. After crossing canyons to break free, she waits, silk and paper smuggled against her skin, ready for the final chapter.

The wait is over.

One young woman has raged against those who threaten to keep away what matters most—family, love, choice. Her revolution is about to explode into full-scale rebellion. As an incurable plague sweeps through the Society, Cassia races to save both the lives and freedom of those she loves. With exquisite prose, the emotionally gripping conclusion to the international–bestselling Matched trilogy returns Cassia, Ky, and Xander to the Society to save the one thing they have been denied for so long, the power to choose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of the series! I found this to be the best move of the series, captivating and enjoyable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ugh I didn't like this book at all. I wish the author left this trilogy as a single novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In a word, love. This ending was everything I hoped for. Many people are disappointed at how it ended, they think it's a dull story, but I think it shows character depth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay It was okay compared to the other two... kind of left me disappointed and wasn't quite what I was expecting from the last novel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fell Short Crossed seemed like a slow buildup to some wondrous finale yet Reached really fell short on my expectations. I expected a battle and the fall of society but that happened yet didn't? Everything seemed really thrown together almost and Condie spent way too much time trying to be poetic instead of actually coming up with a worthy conclusion. It really irked me how so many people suddenly became a highly qualified professional in medicine and flying. Overall just not a good way to end a series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Bad This was an okay book, I did enjoy reading it. I had been expecting more for the conclusion of the trilogy though and it left me a little dissatisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Reached (Matched #3) by Ally Condie In a word, dull. Dull and boring. I think there should have been a bigger event in this book - the Rising fighting the Society - ended up being nothing. At first I honestly thought that maybe my book was missing several chapters - you know, the chapters where something actually happens - but it turns out that the Rising taking over the Society was just that - nothing. There's no action, no suspense, no anything. By the end of the book, I didn't care about Ky, Xander, or Cassia, although it all ended rather predictably for all three of them. I also thought the book was overly vague. Sometimes leaving things vague and trying to create a great symbolism works really well for books, but in this book it actually worked against it. From the jobs (still don't know what the heck a "sorter" is and why computers can't do it) to the "Society" and the "Rising" - everything is just so vague. I also didn't understand how Ky and Indie suddenly became the best trained pilots there ever was or how Xander got medical training so quickly. I could go on about the flaws of this book, but honestly it's hard to even describe the flaws since it's almost impossible to find specific concrete details. Overall, not a *terrible* book, I like the way the author tries to interweave the poetry, but in the end, disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Left me wanting more To be honest, throughout this whole series, I've always loved the characters and how the story developed. Thought I must admit that with this ending, I was a little disappointed. The first two novels I found were better than the last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So boring For me, this was just plain boring. And it tried way too hard to be poetic. What even really happened? The society fell, but not really. They started a disease, caused another disease, and spent a really long time curing it. They started a vote. Yay! A boring end to a boring series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK The ending was disappointing. Thought the lat book would end off better than the previous two.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay I Guess It didn't really give me the impact that I'm looking for, as some parts are kind of boring.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from it was ok im so disappointed I expected the finale book like any other third book in a trilogy to be mindblowing and finish with an epic end. It was ok nonetheless

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reached Definitely not great book but wrapped up the story nicely. kk

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay I mean this series wasn't the greatest, but I just wanted how the story ended. I don't know if I would recommend this to be honest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst of the Series If you enjoy books lacking in depth, or any tensions of any degree of believability, then this is the book for you! However, if you're like me and don't like the character's point of view to change every chapter (it does it for 3 characters in this book, unlike the last one which was just 2), this book will just drive you crazy, or (again if you're like me), drive you to the point past caring. In truth, I never ended up finishing the book. The rebellion had begun, Cassia was in the thick of it (oh no!), but I couldn't care less. Really, it's a pity, but the series was just terrible.
