    "better than the reviews indicate"

    the first book was good, the second less so. Many say they are disappointed in this book. I almost didn't get this book because I was tired of hearing about the the two love birds. Seriously everything that's going on in the world and all that matters is that you love each other?? sure that may appeal to others but I want to know about the rest as well. In this book you get learn more about the surrounding world and the other characters are given their own voice. This was what I had been waiting for... the opportunity to know the others in the story.

    "Terrible end to the series"

    I struggled to complete this book, I found it slow, plodding and all of the excitement of the first book completely gone. I forced myself to listen to all 10 hours which I'd ordinarily consider a short read - and struggled every time. I would definitely recommend not wasting a credit on this one.

    Story
    "Not quite as epic as I'd hoped for, but very good!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! While the first book in the series was by far the best one, Reached was certainly better than book 2. It wasn't everything I hoped for, but it was still satisfying!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Reached?

    The tying up of all the loose ends and the verification of things that had been hinted at!


    What about Jack Riccobono’s performance did you like?

    All of the narrators had very pleasant and distinct tones. I enjoyed them all.


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

    Not particularly. Parts of it were a bit tiresome, and after a long section of listening I welcomed a break.

    "The first book in this series is by far the best"

    The first book, Matched, is great! The second book, Crossed, is slow, but seems to be building to an exciting third and final book. Unfortunately, that is not what this book delivered. Instead of an action packed conclusion, what I got was added confusion and lack of momentum. This book was simultaneously "all over the place" and stagnant. Some of the concepts related to the plague, the cure, and the statistical sorting were interesting, but all these components did not come together very neatly in the end. The conclusion of this book was trying very hard to wrap everything up, but I felt like there was some vital component of the story still missing. And I agree with another reviewer in that I also would have liked a little more insight into the enemy. Overall, I was disappointed with this book.

    "A satisfying conclusion"

    Having heard the first two, I was looking forward to this one. I found it a satisfying conclusion to what had been set in motion by Matched and Crossed, but since it was primarily tying up threads rather than starting new ones, it was a little bit less exciting than previous books. The main characters' stories are nicely capped off-- though some of the details of the political situation and the history of the Society are glossed over a bit through a long view of history that neglects to give, to my mind, a full picture of inciting causes. Still, I would recommend it as a solid teen adventure romance.

    Story
    "Boring, long winded. Dissappointed."
    What would have made Reached better?

    Action. Less pining, more changes, fighting, SOMETHING! Society gets passively voted away? Such a let-down when the first two books in the series were full of adventure and danger.


    Has Reached turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No as there are some series that I have enjoyed all of the books: Hunger Games, Divergent (so far only 2 books).


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO. It ended a good series poorly.

    "Anticlimactic end to a good series."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Nearly everything. I didn't hate it but it was a terrible ending to what started out as a good series. When it was over all I could think was "that's it?!" it had so much potential!

    "Couldn't wait for the end"
    What would have made Reached better?

    It was the same story told over again. It needed a more exciting plot line.


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

    It needed to be cut in half and have a little more action. It became predictable and the amount of poetry used to support the story line became exhausting. There had to be a way to still make the reader realize that poetry was an important part in their lives now that they have the freedom to create it without having verse, after verse of seemingly pointless poetry. It just didn't move the story forward.


    What about Jack Riccobono’s performance did you like?

    I think his performance was great.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were some great moments, especially with the families. Xander was probably my favorite character and probably the most complex in this trilogy.

    "Enjoyed the first two, but"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, The series was enjoyable and you can't leave a story unfinished, but I wish it was a bit better written.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The last book dragged out, the first two were wonderfully written and even had a couple surprises and twists. The 3rd book did not, it kinda just went through the motions. I did enjoy having all 3 perspectives.


    Do you think Reached needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no, I think the story is done
