I just tell you if a book is bad :)
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.
It is well written for its genre. Although it uses many ideas from similar books it is an interesting listen for a young adult romance.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
That they made it! I wish they would have ran away together, but I hope in the next book they get to be together forever.....such strong young people....
This time its Ky...he is so very complex....he is an honorable young man....
They bring the characters to life with great emotion...its a good book....I hope number 3 is available soon...
yes and no,,,,the best part was the beginning and the end....the middle was good...and worth reading...but the beginning and end were great....
read it....you will like it...
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
The female reader's voice was clearly dynamic and she showed that when she slipped between different characters voices. It got to the point where I was unsure whether the has another person come in to record just one line of dialogue here and there. However, the tone she used predominately for cassia was so airy and whispy it was hard to imagine her as anything but ditzy (when really her character is much more like a Katness-level badass). And then the casting for Ky's chapters had a similar airy quality that did not match his character at all. It was super distracting to hear him speak in ky's voice.
I really like the concept of the story, but it was a bit too mushy ( like a chick flick) for me.
no. I liked it but it wasn't one that I loved or would read again
her journey to find Ky
they do a great job with the narration. their voices are good with the roles
I don't think so
I liked this book but it was a little slow...there was action and it wasn't just a filler but it just seemed slower to me
