Cynical Reader

Give me a happily-ever-after fairy-tale and I'll fight you every step of the way, but give me a tragic, grief-ridden story and I'll let it consume me.

Matched - Ally Condie snoooooooozefest!!

I can't do it, I just can't! I hate leaving books unfinished, and normally I actually like the book better while I'm reading it than when I look back on it...so I'm guessing that if I can't stand it now I'm really going to hate it later. Let's face it there is waaaay too many good books out there and life is too short to be forcing yourself to read a bad book.

I couldn't stand the characters, Condie never gave me any reason to be attached to them. They were plain and completely unoriginal. I thought the point was to write about someone different, who stands out from the rest...or else you're just reading a really boring, nothing happens, plain dialog kinda book. The writing honestly reminded me a lot of Halo, which was written by a 16? y/o (and you could definitely tell!).

I will be putting this book on Ebay immediately! I'm so mad at myself for buying this one, I need to be re-compensated ASAP!

P.S. I had high hopes for this one, thinking it was going to be somewhat like Wither (which I loved!!)but was sadly mistaken.
