Matched is a story with a very interesting idea but in the end is disappointing. I found Matched to be very similar in some ways to the story 1984 by George Orwell and was very upset to find the similarities. Dystopian novels are very difficult to write, I understand that. Trying to think of a new, creative way the future may turn out. But copying another author is not how you write a novel, you can use them for inspiration but you must make your own ideas.
The book was not terrible. Matched is a very interesting idea for the story, I just wish it was original.
