Before this, I’d never read dystopian fiction. Didn’t think I’d like it. Then I read Matched, and it was so good. What a journey for our dear characters. And the quotes. My copy of Crossed is full of blue ink from where I underlined. But perhaps the best quote from the whole trilogy is this:
You cannot change your journey if you are unwilling to move at all.
Ally Condie, Reached
Aside from the wealth of wisdom, the story was fantastic.
A government that controls everything- what your job is, when you die, who you marry. Cassia is matched with Xander, who’s also her best friend. But then she falls in love with someone else.
I loved these people. Honestly. That’s all I got in regard to characters.
The only thing that I didn’t much care for was how the last book was done. It was still amazing, but I expected something grander. More of a rebellion. But I’m new to this genre.
So now it’s on to Catching Fire.
