12-15. Samfundet bestämmer. Vem du ska älska. Var du ska arbeta. När du ska dö.17-åriga Cassia Reyes lever i en värld där Samfundet styr. Ett kliniskt rent samhälle där allt är bestämt på förhand. Det har blivit dags för banketten, något som Cassia har sett fram emot i åratal. Det är nu hon ska få reda på vem hon ska leva med resten av sitt liv, vem Samfundet har matchat ihop henne med för att uppnå största möjliga perfektion. Cassia har alltid litat på Samfundet, på att de fattar de rätta besluten åt henne: vad hon ska läsa och vad hon ska tro på. Så när Xanders ansikte dyker upp på bildskärmen under matchningsceremonin vet Cassia att han är hennes idealpartner - tills hon ser Ky Markhams ansikte flasha förbi under ett ögonblick, innan skärmen släcks ner.Cassia börjar förstå att allt inte är som det verkar. Om Samfundet vet bäst, hur kommer det sig då att hon har parats ihop med fel person? Och vad händer om hon blir kär i någon annan, någon förbjuden, någon som inte är hennes utvalda?  Matchad är första delen i en trilogi. Prosan är glasklar samtidigt som språket är poetiskt och drömskt. Ally Condie har jämförts med Kazuo Ishiguro, författare till Never Let Me Go.Matchad har blivit en försäljningssuccé i USA. Med över 200 000 sålda ex, trycker man 250 000 exemplar av pocketupplagan och 250 000 exemplar av förstaupplagan av Crossed som är den andra delen i serien. … (mer)

    Nine Tomorrows av Isaac Asimov (Phantasma)
    Phantasma: Many of the short stories in this Asimov collection have similar ideas to the ones mentioned in Matched, such as matching a person's abilities and personality to their job and then giving them instruction in only that job. Most of the stories in the Asimov collection are distopian futures based on technology. And, for something originally written in the 50s... still quite plausible.… (mer)

Not as good as Hunger Games but it kept me listening. ( )
  Flowercreek | Jun 24, 2024 |
I found this book pretty engrossing. (But maybe I'm just like that :P) I stayed up past midnight to finish it in one sitting.

While I felt like it was a good book, I also thought that it seemed an awful lot like other books I've read more or less recently. A lot of the ideas of this Society echo concepts found in Lois Lowry's books The Giver and Gathering Blue.

For example, just like in The Giver, people who apply to get a spouse are matched up with someone based on personality, skill, and other factors. The people have no choice. Yet the main character finds himself (or in Matched, herself) wanting to be able to choose.

Also, for the elderly, what other people think of as peaceful, natural processes turn out to really be the government's way of controlling who lives and who dies. When their time is up, the old are poisoned.

In Gathering Blue, those few artists who create things are taken away. They are forced to use their skills to create what the leaders want them to make. This is what I thought of when I read about Ky being the only person who knew how to write. He could make swirling cursive, but everyone else only knew how to tap letters on a touchscreen.

The love triangle of Cassia, Xander, and Ky reminded me a bit too much of Katniss, Gale, and Peeta in the Hunger Games. The whole best friend/other guy conflict. Whether to choose the one the government wants her to marry, or the one she currently has feelings for. However, I was relieved to find that Cassia's outlook on the love was very different from Katniss's. I can't really describe exactly how it was different... but it was refreshing, really, to see a different spin on the love triangle.

Having said all that, the content still somehow felt original. It seemed like the author did have her own story to tell. It only reminded me of those books because I'd read them recently and thought about them a lot. I was the one drawing similarities, not the author stealing ideas. Still, I'd recommend reading all these books far apart in time. They each have their own merits but they'll sound too similar if you read them one after another.

I don't know if this is a new style among authors or what. A lot of books seem to end leaving the reader with more questions than they had at the beginning. This one did for sure. It seemed that everyone had dozens of deep, dark secrets. But it also made sense- they were realizing that there were some things they simply could not tell each other.

So there you have it. A decent read. As tired as I am, I don't regret losing several hours of sleep over it. ( )

I have heard some amazing things about this book!! After reading a review that was less than glowing, I had to move this up on my TBR list. I am a sucker for moving a book up if I come across a bad review. Although I can agree with some points that the reviewer made, to me the book was a good read. I loved that even though it was Dystopian, it wasn't so much like the other Dystopian books I have read, so I felt as thought I was reading this genre for the first time.
Ally Condie drags us into a world where everything is different. The world is overlooked "read: CONTROLLED" by the "Officals", and you really have no say in anything. You are told how to think, what to read, what to eat, who you love, where you will work and even when you will die. The world is so controlled that you aren't even allowed to learn to write by hand, everything is done on a "Scribe" which I am assuming is sort of like an Ipad/tablet pc.
Matched was a tough read for me, don't get me wrong; I loved the book, I just had a little trouble following the story at times. There were a lot things about the Province that ticked me off. I mean really, I would never want to live in a world where everything was pretty much decided for me. I want to choose who I love, not be Matched with someone because our genes have the potential to make the best offspring. And really, who wants to be told how many kids they can have? Or even where they are going to live and work?
As with any YA book, you know there has to be a love triangle. And the one between Cassia ( the main character), Xander, and Ky is a strange one. Cassia and Xander have been friends for most of their lives, and by some odd chance they are Matched, by the Society. Now, I automatically thought something was fishy about that whole thing, how is it that the person you are most compatible with in the entire "world" just happens to already be your best friend? It didn't sit right with me at all.
Then after Cassia arrives home from her Match ceremony ( where she was Matched with Xander), and gets around to putting her information chip about Xander in the "port" she see's Xander's face for a few seconds then all of a sudden she see's Ky's face.
Now Ky wasn't mentioned until this happened, and then all of a sudden, he is EVERYWHERE! The oOfficials make contact with Cassia to tell her that seeing Ky's face on her Match screen was a mistake and to just think of the life she will lead with Xander... But of course, Cassia constantly thinks about Ky. Thus begins the love triangle. Cassia is somehow around Ky more than her Match Xander; which again was raising flags in my mind; and she slowly begins to fall in love with Ky. Ky has a story to tell, but has never told anyone, he is a rebel in a way; not a noticeable way though; and he tells his story to Cassia, while teaching her to write by hand.
Things happen and mistakes are made, Ky is sent off to a new "work" position and Cassia learns that her family is being relocated to another Province. After Cassia learns of an experiment conducted by the Officials, she vows to find Ky no matter what.... Which will lead us into the second book in the series which is set to come out in November....

I did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. I'm surprised by how well Condie writes her characters and how much I came to care about Cassia's and Ky's story. I look forward to reading more of their story. ( )
  thatnerd | Mar 2, 2024 |
Liked it, but didnt love it. i kept waiting for something big to happen. I guess i have to read the second in the series to see something big happen.

This first book in a planned trilogy feels just like that: a setup to a larger story rather than a stand-alone read. Having said that, we'll still be in line for book 2.
tillagd av Katya0133 | ändraEntertainment Weekly, Sara Vilkomerson (Dec 3, 2010)
 
[Cassia's] awakening and development are realistically portrayed, and supporting characters like Cassia's parents and her grandfather add depth to the story.
tillagd av Katya0133 | ändraSchool Library Journal, Anthony C. Doyle (Dec 1, 2010)
 
Condie's enthralling and twisty dystopian plot is well served by her intriguing characters and fine writing.
tillagd av Katya0133 | ändraPublishers Weekly (Oct 4, 2010)
 
Detractors will legitimately cite less-than-subtle morality and similarities to The Giver, but this one's a fierce, unforgettable page-turner in its own right.

The stunning clarity and attention to detail in Condie’s Big Brother–like world is a feat.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

at first when the rain fell
from the sky so wide and deep
it smelled like sage, my favorite smell
I went up on the plateau to watch it come
to see the gifts it always brought
but this rain changed from blue to black
and left
nothing.

Now that I've found the way to fly, which direction should I go into the night? My wings aren't white or feathered; they're green, made of green silk, which shudders in the wind and bends when I move - first in a circle, then in a line, finally in a shape of my own invention.

It is almost uncomfortable, this awareness of him. Each pause, each movement when he places a piece on the black-and-gray board. I want to reach out and grab his hand and hold it to me, right over my heart, right where it aches the most. I don't know if doing that would heal me or make my heart break entirely; but either way this constant hungry waiting would be over.
