#14 Matched Trilogy
So I’m down to last book of Matched trilogy yet I still can’t feel it. Not because of how it’s written or the flow… you know the technical stuff cause I am not qualified judging a book that way. I can barely write an “okay” blog post to save my life. I focus more on the plot and feels. Maybe a bit more on the feels.
Back to the trilogy, I’ve read Matched and Crossed in a span of two days so clearly I’m hooked. It really is nice. When I say nice , it means I like it but that’s pretty much it. For me, it lacks the intensity I’m looking for when it comes to dystopian novels. From the characters, the government and the rebellion. Cassia is plain disappointing. I don’t know what’s her deal. When she was thrown to become a decoy villager (which equals to death) by the Society, I didn’t feel anything. Heck, I don’t even feel the Society. When Ky and Cassia met after they were separated, I didn’t feel anything. It’s like “Oh they are back together. Good for them.” As for the rebellion, I still have high hopes for the last book.
Hard to find a proper word to describe it so I’ll go with it’s an eye-candy. I describe books like I describe people. LOL. Sorry.
Maybe it’s me though. You know, it’s-not-the-book-it’s-me problem. Since I am very fond of Dystopian novels, I want it to be an intense experience. The “perfect” Government. The Laws. The way of living. The realizations of how imperfect and twisted the “perfect Government is.” by the people. The escape. The thirst for freedom. The rebellion. The war. I prefer them dark, deep and bloody.
Anyhow, I need to shut my trap and start with the last book. Tomorrow, too tired and sleep deprived.
