Book Review: Crossed by: Ally Condie

Crossed (Matched, #2)
My rating: 1 of 5 Ravens

Synopsis: Rules Are Different Outside The Society

Chasing down an uncertain future, Cassia makes her way to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky--taken by the Society to his sure death--only to find that he has escaped into the majestic, but treacherous, canyons. On this wild frontier are glimmers of a different life and the enthralling promise of a rebellion. But even as Cassia sacrifices every thing to reunite with Ky, ingenious surprises from Xander may change the game once again.

Narrated from both Cassia's and Ky's point of view, this hotly anticipated sequel to Matched will take them both to the edge of Society, where nothing is as expected and crosses and double crosses make their path more twisted than ever.

Review: I was expecting amazing things from this book because I loved Matched. I was disappointed, the characters were there but the writing wasn't. It thought it was slow, repetitive, and I just couldn't get into it. I tried but, just couldn't. I will probably not read the next book in the series but I will forever adore Matched.

  1. Gha, don't you HATE when a sequel just doesn't live up to the first book? I think it's even worse when this happens a few books into the series. I've dropped a few series because of this.

  2. I just finished Matched over the weekend and loved it. Crossed is up next this week. I hope I like it a litle better but this hasn't been my year for sequels.

  3. WOW-1 star? I definitely agree with you that this didn't live up to the first book. I much preferred the world building and rules of the Society to Cassia and Ky's long paragraphs of thinking where nothing happened.
