I love to walk and run listening to audiobooks
Book #2 (of a planned 3?) to Matched. Vague sketches of the Society are flushed out, but I am worried that this trilogy will end up like the Maze Runner: first two books are interesting enough but the third will fail to tie up all loose ends tantalizingly introduced in the first two books. We will see. One reviewer wanted more romance – are we kidding?! It was sort of Barbara Cartland for teens – rather annoying and a bit concerning given the target age of the reader. But, nevertheless, this is an interesting story of another dystopian society with oppressed teens searching for a way to be free.
Rediscovering what young love felt like
When Ky and Cassia find each other
They are believable for the ages they are portraying
No not really
Have it spoken like a readers theatre or a play. Switching male and female was awful. The female narrator was perfect. I now see she is not narrating the 3rd book so thats another reason not stop reading this series at book two.
All of the journey. Need more about the people and relationships.

Where are they?
The multiple story lines and events being shared simultaneously.
Jack - he was more passionate in his delivery.
...a real young love story.
I enjoyed the beginning a lot more and have decided to hold off on the final book.Anticipation just isn't there.
Just fair series
They spoke a little slow. Found myself listening to the book on 2x speed
I enjoyed Matched and looked forward to this book. It was a struggle to complete the book. As much as I enjoy this genre I found this book started out not too bad but became boring. I don't think I will get the 3rd book in the series.
I love to listen to all kinds of mystery and crime books along with biographies, romance and self help books.
The story moved to slow. My favorite characters were killed. To much poetry.
YES. I love her. I will read all of her books.
I thought both of them were great. I enjoyed listening to them
Yes. I liked the additional characters. I liked the love between Cassia and Ky.
I look forward to the next book.
The "twists" that the authors puts in this book are weak at best, especially when you consider how poorly written the third book is. Save your time and credits and make up your own ending to the story...trust me it will be better.
The plot was dragging. The long separation of the two main characters- the plodding mushy sentimentality -it was a little too much for a little too long. I'll admit that I fast forwarded- partly due to long internal dialogues- (in the male's narrator's nasal voice that was quite irritating and whiny!) and partly due to the lack of action. I don't think that this book was even necessary. It seems like this was filler. I haven't read or listened to the last book, but I believe everything probably could have been condensed into one large novel.
Something else. The same male narrator is used on the last book. If I do complete the series, I will read the book and not purchase the audio version.
The girl character is okay. She sounds a little young, but does a decent job. The male narrator is absurd. He has an annoying voice- nasal and weak. When an audio version is used to represent the entire character- it is important that the voice be able to represent that character well. His representation of the female characters is grating as well.
I did cry. There were some truly emotional moments. Unfortunately it is hard to get invested in either character when the perspective is constantly shifting.
one to 10 it was like a 8
some times there was music helping the mood
yes!! the music almost made my cry in public with the mood of the book
