Appears on the Matching screen Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the oneuntil she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices Matched drew me in with it's uniue summary and beautiful cover unfortunately that is where my fascination endedI wanted to like this book actually I wanted to love it but I didn't I had a very hard time getting though this novel I even had to take a break from it completely and I only kept reading because of the encouragement from others that had read it insisting that it would get better It didn't get a whole lot better for meI guess my biggest problem was that I was bored for most of the novel I was bored with the story the characters everything Cassia was selfish and dull I tried to like her but she never really gave me much reason to Her relationships with Xander and Ky were impassive I understand that Xander was 'chosen' for her so there were going to be fireworks every time they touched but I still didn't even understand their appeal as friends not just as a romantically involved couple And the obsession with Ky why And that's all that it felt like to me an obsession I didn't feel or see the energy between themThe Society wasn't explained very well Why is The Society there How did it come to be Why the current precautions Why are there people that live in The Society and others that don't There is a war going on Why Where With who I had uestions than anythingI didn't know enough about the characters and the life they were living to really care about them It felt like a very long prologue to another storyThe few chapters at the end of the story piued my interest somewhat but even then it was tainted with how I had felt through most of the entire novel It was beautifully written but I just couldn't get into itStill undecided on reading the rest of the trilogy
