Reached By: Ally Condie
Cassia’s journey began with an error, a momentary glitch in the otherwise perfect facade of the Society. After crossing canyons to break free, she waits, silk and paper smuggled against her skin, ready for the final chapter. The wait is over. One young woman has raged against those who threaten to keep away what matters most—family, love, choice. Her quiet revolution is about to explode into full-scale rebellion. With exquisite prose, the emotionally gripping conclusion to the international–bestselling Matched trilogy returns Cassia, Ky, and Xander to the Society to save the one thing they have been denied for so long, the power to choose.
I read a dystopian book for this review; it was Reached by: Ally Condie. It was a really good book out of the Matched trilogy. The book is chockablock of amazing, unusual, and great surprises. It really kept my attention as a reader. So readers out there beware this book is amazing. I would have to say that my favorite part of this book was its growth in characters, its theme, and I enjoyed how the author chose to write her chapters.
The characters in this book seemed to grow over the time, and seemed to grow over what they have been through together and separately. I felt like I knew each main character personally and I felt sorry, happy, and sad for everything they had to go through. Cassia and Ky finally grew to a point where they didn’t have to hid where they loved each other and didn’t have to worry about who knew. Xander final got over his love for Cassia and found another love. Bram had seen so much and had to do so much to a point where he grows up, he wasn’t the same little kid any more. It is just an amazing book Ally Condie wrote it so well that I could know each and every character very well.
In the book Reached by: Ally Condie it talks about a perfect society falling to its knees. Ally Condie set up the theme in this book really good. It is about how these people finally “Reached” their goals. The ending to this book is exactly what the characters wanted. The characters worked so hard to reach what they wanted. Maybe all they wanted was to chose who they love, to chose how to live, or to chose when they die.
The way Ally Condie wrote this book was amazing. Most books have only one person talking through the whole book, but in this book it was more than one person talking. It would be one chapter for Cassia, next chapter for Xander, then a chapter for Ky. I could get all of their points of view. That right there was amazing to me. I could get to know and understand each character better than before. It was a really smart way to write this book.
The only down fall about this book is that it’s the last one. I wish there was another one. I loved this book along with the first two of the trilogy. It is one of those books that will make anyone want to know more. I would love for there to be another one. I would give this book a five star rating. It is just that great if you are a reader you should read this trilogy.
