So I read Matched

As soon as a majority of commenters started telling me yesterday that Matched was crapular and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was awesome and I wouldn't be able to put it down, I knew what I would have to read next: the shorter, simpler, less rapey book that I'd be able to get through in a morning.

(Quick premise: "For Cassia, nothing is left to chance--not what she will eat, the job she will have, or the man she will marry. In Matched, the Society Officials have determined optimal outcomes for all aspects of daily life, thereby removing the 'burden' of choice. When Cassia's best friend is identified as her ideal marriage Match it confirms her belief that Society knows best, until she plugs in her Match microchip and a different boy’s face flashes on the screen. This improbable mistake sets Cassia on a dangerous path to the unthinkable--rebelling against the predetermined life Society has in store for her.")

Less crapular than previously supposed. Some spoilersCollapse )
