About Matched Audiobook Free By Ally Condie

REVIEW BY THE GUARDIAN

I think Matched Audiobook Free is absolutely brilliant: the best book I have read all summer. It’s the story of Cassia Reyes, a 17 year old girl living in a future Society, where culture has been uncluttered and there are only 100 Songs, 100 Books and 100 Poems available to the population. Officials control everyone’s lives, deciding what they wear, who they love, where they work and when they die. Cassia is about to be Matched, a ceremony where 17 year old citizens meet their future spouse. Cassia is Matched with Xander Carrow, her best friend, and she couldn’t be happier. But when she views her match details on her micro card, it glitches and a face she recognizes comes up on screen. He is Ky Markham, an Aberration who isn’t eligible to be Matched. But when Cassia begins to fall in love with him, her whole world begins to unravel…

My favourite character is Cassia. She is kind, caring and relatable. As the book progresses, her rebellious side begins to show, and her reaction to all she has learned about the Society, when all she begins to doubt the way things are, makes interesting reading. As this book is written in the first person through her point of view, you feel what she feels and understand her more than anyone else in the book. Her varied personality relates to nearly everyone, and I think the success of this character comes from the fact that we all have a little bit of her personality inside us.

Ky is another strong character. The aura of mystery that surrounds him instantly makes me want to know more. He seems gentle and relaxed, but behind his blue eyes is knowledge of the horrors of Society and the things Officials don’t tell the public. As his tragic backstory is gradually revealed, you genuinely feel sorry for him and get to know him as a character in a deeper sense.

I am not such a big fan of Xander. Most of the time he seems like a two dimensional plot device instead of an actual character. He is easy-going and loyal to Cassia but doesn’t have a very complex character and his darker side isn’t revealed until the very end of the book. It feels a bit wrong that he sort of goes along with Cassia’s love of Ky, and makes little attempt at protesting. That said, he is very nice to nearly everyone and is a likable character, but he doesn’t have much depth of character.

The language used in this book is very good. It is varied and detailed and really builds an image in your head of the story. The author has invented a world, and sort of repurposed words to use in the story. For example, the word ‘citation’ in the book means a small break in Society’s rules which is recorded officially, but in real life it means a reference to a source. There is a relation between the words, which is about noting something down, so I can see why Condie chose it. There is lots of rich and vivid description, and emotive language is used very effectively. One of my favourite things about this book is the use of poetry, and specific poems which are banned in the Society. The poem ‘Do not go gentle into that good night’ by Dylan Thomas is given to Cassia by her Grandfather, and she uses it as her inspiration to fight back against society.

Matched Audiobook Free has such a wide range of language, some exciting characters and such a rich in-book world, and I absolutely love it. It is definitely on par with other books in its genre, like the Hunger Games and Divergent, yet the story is so different and more about feelings than struggling to survive. I can’t wait to read the other two books!

I would recommend this for 12 plus because it is a brilliant book but deals with complex and mature themes that younger readers may struggle with.
