My Review: 4.0 Stars

Okay so let me be honest, this book has been on my to read pile for a while. In fact the only reason I actually decided on this book is because my local library had the audiobook version available and since my travel time has doubled in the last few weeks. I chose this book to listen to while driving.

Now having said that Ally Condie did a great job on this book. Matched is about based around Cassia, Xander and Ky. These three are only seventeen and about to find out what is laid out for their future. Cassia is matched both to Xander and Ky. One with approval from the government and the other was a “glitch” in their system. Which leads Cassia to realize the system is faulty. This stroy was well written and thought out.

Kate Simses was the narrator of this audiobook. Kate Simses did an excellent job. She was able to grab my attention and keep it. Which is always a plus. Kate Simese’s intonation was perfect for a great listening experience. I look forward to listening to more books that Kate Simses has narrated.

The publishing company for this audiobook was Penguin Audio. I’ll be honest they seem to be one of my favorite production houses when it comes to audio books.  They didn’t leave me disappointed with this selection either.

Now for the big question would I recommend this book? I would have to say yes. But please keep in mind this book is written for a younger audience and is from the point of view of a seventeen year old girl. Besides that all in all a great book and I really look forward to the rest of this series.
