    "Disappointed ..most likely will return this book"
    What would have made Reached better?

    Less predictable and More action


    Any additional comments?

    As I listened to this book , I experienced waves of nausea every time love for Cassia was mentioned (every 5 minutes). The book was very predictable and annoying. Thanks God for return program.

    "What Happened to the Series?"

    While I enjoyed the first two books in this trilogy, I was disappointed in the conclusion. The plot about going still and finding the cure had potential. But Condie made it more of a subplot. The book was more about Zander's and Ky's love for Cassia. While it appeared that Zander experienced some growth throughout the series, Cassia remained nearly stagnant in that arena and Ky was a lovesick puppy all the way through. His whining was detestable and I couldn't stand listening to him. If I hadn't been driving when I listened to the book, I would have skipped all of his chapters. His contribution to the plot was nonexistent. The book could have carried on perfectly fine without him. I don't know how Cassia, portrayed as very intelligent, could have fallen for such a person. The "match" makes no sense.

    Although I realize the book is dystopian in nature, and teens would mature a little faster, I think they sounded a little too old for their ages. The last 25% of the book was moralizing on the part of Cassia. It was as if Condie was reaching herself for a way to wind it up. Perhaps the entire tale would have been better as a two-book series.

    I know readers who read the first two novels will feel compelled to buy the last one, but if you can stop yourselves from doing so, you'll save a valuable credit.

    "So disappointed!!!!!"
    What disappointed you about Reached?

    It was very drawn out and quite boring. I really don't like how they threw in a relationship for Zander at the end. I had a very hard time getting through this book. It was nothing like the first one. I still would like to know who the "enemy" is.


    What could Ally Condie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Kept the story similar to the first book. This one had many sections that were way too convient and hard to believe. There were also questions that went unanswered. Overall, I am very disappointed.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The girl did great but Kye(not sure of the spelling) was pretty awful. By the end his voice was very irritating.


    What character would you cut from Reached?

    Zander's new girl. I believe her name is Layla. It felt like she was just added in at the end so everyone could have a happy ending.


    Any additional comments?

    This book manages to be drawn out and rushed at the same time. I can't even explain how that is possible.

    "Yawn!!"
    What would have made Reached better?

    What wouldn't? Some action maybe. For better parts of the book nothing happens at all. I was just waiting for something to happen, but no. The outcome was as predicted as well, no news there. She chose the one I knew she'd choose, and all was well in the world. I can't believe that a trilogy with such a promising start had such an incredibly boring ending. The entire book lacks inspiration.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ally Condie again?

    Hmm.. maybe? I loved the first book in this trilogy, so why not?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    All the narrators read in monotone voices, so that the already boring story got even more boring and tedious.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    "A bit of a disappointment..."

    I loved Matched and Crossed (the first two books in this trilogy). I couldn't wait for Reached to be published. Once I was able to listen to it, I felt let down. The story seems to drag on while we wait for the inevitable conclusion that happens at the very end. The narrators were wonderful though! I enjoyed their performances.

    "a good 3rd book"

    Much better than book 2, and a nice way to end the series. Kate Simses rocks. Jack Riccobono as the character Ky is exhausting to listen to. I find myself rolling my eyes whenever he speaks. I think part of it is the performance and part of it is the character of Ky himself. There's only so much whining I can take.

    "Hmm. Didn't care for it."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I liked the first two, but this one was like a train wreck. I couldn't stop listening, because I kept thinking something would happen that would pull me in. Nope!

    "A Great Finale"

    This was a wonderful end to the series that brought back some of the emotional connection of the original. Unlike something like Divergent's finale, Reached made excellent use of multiple narrators and brought events to good finality without locking in the entire future of every character. I felt satisfied with the world and the story at the end, but also invested in the story as it unfurled. I was especially happy with Xander as a character, who became much more three-dimensional in this story. As a group, Xander, Ky, and Cassia were not wholly annoying with the love triangle and actually realized that there were more important happenings.

    "Dawson's Creek revisited, but still good"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure...I have to disagree with some of the other negative reviews I read, especially the ones advising not to "waste a credit" on this book. This is after all, a series written for a younger audience, so of course the pace is different. I thought the narrators did a nice job, and I disagree with those that felt Ky "whined"....he was deliriously ill after all....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorite


    Which scene was your favorite?

    no favorite


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen 24/7, over and over, but yes, this one held my interest.
