Matched

It will be interesting to see where the second book of the series goes, because this book was definitely non-conclusive.

Ally Condie takes Satan's plan and forms a society.  All the choices are made for you, so you'll never make the wrong choice.  And it's clear that individuals never experience true joy or success, because their lives are not their own.  This book reminded me a bit of The Giver.  Cassia is seeking to find a way to live the way she wants to, but by doing so will bring about a new life for everyone, in which they will now be prone to mistakes and suffering.  Interesting...

I liked Matched as well. It reminded me a lot of The Hunger Games. I am also interested to see where the author takes the story in the next book.
It was fun to read a simple, interesting novel.
