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.
Ally Condie ( received a degree in English Teaching from Brigham Young University and spent a number of years teaching high school English in Utah and upstate New York. She lives with her husband and four children outside of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved this! Loved this, from the first day I got it. Once again there were so boring parts, but it was worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Left me hanging Goodish ending for a trilogy, very similar to the hungers games series. Therefore if you enjoy that series you'll definitely like this one. Found this one a little slow, left me feeling wanted more thought

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring ** spoiler alert ** This book was SO boring! I'm confused how the Rising is any different from the Society? I don't understand why Kasha chooses Kai over Xander, because I feel like if the reverse happens on her match chip she would have chosen differently, maybe that's the point? She wanted to choose. None of these characters really developed for me & maybe they were all so boring and dull because they were raised in the Society. At the end this series feels like it went nowhere, or somewhere it could have gotten to in one book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Dystopian Dud Nope. Nada. Did not like. Maybe if I was to do this whole reading experience again, I would choose to actually read the physical book series but not only did I find the narrator(s) dull in the audio book but I felt the book (and the series) dull as a whole. I did not become interested or invested in any of the characters. In fact, certain aspects of each of them annoyed me quite regularly. I also wasn’t a fan of this particular love triangle and at one point believed that Ky and Xander were both too good for Cassia. I have to say that for others reading the series, the physical copy may be the best route to go. I don’t think I would have a different opinion when reading it but the audiobook and the narration also contributed to my dislike of this series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid ending The third book definitely provided a solid ending and a nice destination for the journey of character development of all the characters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid 4 stars! I liked Reached a loott better than the past 2 books. I found Matched and Crossed to be fairly slow and uneventful, for the most part. But Reached pleasantly surprised me. A ton happened regarding the rising and the rebellion. There was a lot more action, character development, and plot twists galore. I also liked how the author took little things from the 1st book that we thought were unimportant at the time and turned them into massive plot points. Reeally liked it overall! Very satisfying ending! #plumreview

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh First book was amazing. Second was decent and this one just went downhill. It was a struggle to finish. This book was not a necessity but you have to finish a series once it's started.
Date published: 2018-01-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't wait to finish Such a boring and unoriginal series... this perhaps being the worst out of the trilogy. Couldn't wait to get the book over with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good! Enjoyed the series as a whole, but was hard to get through this one in particular. Overall good read

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 2 out of 5 by from Dull I couldn't finish it, was too boring...
Date published: 2017-07-05
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.
Date published: 2017-06-26
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.
Date published: 2017-04-23
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.
Date published: 2017-01-25
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.
Date published: 2017-01-14
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.
