This is actually getting 25 stars I m being niceSigh where to begin with this one You know that I try to be nice with my reviews and at least say something that I liked about a book before I go all crazy rant girl on it so I guess we ll do a run down of what I liked about this second book in Ally Condie s Matched trilogy first Crossed did a good job of continuing the romance between Cassia and Ky and honestly I do like the romance between them Not too hot n heavy not to whiney piney it s sweet and simple I also liked the conflict that was created between all the relationships going on even though we all know just how beaten to death love triangles are Cassia still doesn t know whether she should chose Xander the guy she was originally matched with or go with Ky who has shown her a whole new way of life Oh yeah and what was going on between Ky and Indie Was anybody else wondering that Were they attracted to each other I couldn t tell but this definitely peaked my curiosity and I wonder what will be going on between them in the futureThe new characters that were introduced in Crossed namely Indie Eli Vick and Hunter were all likable if somewhat lackluster and underdeveloped I thought that Indie was strong and brave which Cassia really needed while she was trying to survive in the wilderness and I m glad that Ky decided to take Eli and Vick with him so there was some interaction going on during his parts of the story Hunter was sort of a mystery although we know that he has a sad backgroundI also liked the descriptive language used to paint a picture of what The Carving AKA the giant canyon that Ky and Cassia escape to was like For the most part I was able to see the rugged landscape and the different settings that both Cassia and Ky traveled through which created a stark contrast to the perfect pristine setting of The Society from the first bookAlright so that s what I liked now moving on to the stuff I wasn t a fan ofFirst of all let s not beat around the bush here the plot was one gigantic snooze fest And I m not just talking molasses in January slow I m talking lucky if you aren t comatose by the time you finish it slowI find this to be an unfortunate yet typical issue with second books in trilogies it s why many avid readers call it Second Book Syndrome because you are seriously lucky if you haven t died of boredom by the time you reach the end But Crossed really takes the prize for SBS in my opinion mainly because the narrative is reflective to the point of being totally ridiculous I mean you re in the moment and then all of a sudden one of the characters starts reminiscing about some memory or starts considering a leaf or a piece of grass and thinking Wow how beautiful This green leaf reminds me of the color of my Match banuet dress and my mom and dad and my childhood and it s so pretty what a beautiful blade of grass I think I will write a poem about itNo I am not making this up literally the entire book is like this And what s I don t understand the point of it None of the memories are ones we haven t already heard about from the first book and they don t bring us to any mind blowing revelations about what s going on in the present They re just pretty and empty and I m sorry don t add much to the plot except that I had to work that much harder to not fall asleepMy second issue with this series and this book in particular is that there is pretty much zero context or motivation for anything that is going on This is a problem not just with the main characters but with the entire world that they live in I have so many uestions that haven t been answered yet starting with1 WHO or WHAT is the Society and what is their purpose behind getting rid of all but 100 of everything example The Hundred Songs The Hundred Paintings The Hundred Poems and then controlling everyone in the way that they do We re told that they want to increase efficiency and stop death but how the heck does getting rid of music and paintings do this2 WHO is The Enemy that is mentioned at least a hundred times throughout the story and what is their motivation for rising up against The Society and killing people in the Outer Provinces NOTHING is said about The Enemy if you aren t counting the fact that they are called The Enemy This gives me the reader absolutely nada to go on do the main characters even know who on earth The Enemy is Wouldn t this be an important little tidbit of info to let us in on JUST SAYING3 WHO are these people in The Rising and what the heck is their motivation To get rid of The Society The Enemy I am SO CONFUSED And also why does Cassia want to join The Rising s rebellion so badly when she has no idea who they even are or what they actually stand for4 What exactly was everyone s ultimate goal in this book Why were they wandering around a canyon for almost 400 pages I m sorry but if I get to the end of a book and have little understanding of why anything just happened and I close the thing with a ginormous blank stare on my face you missed something Like badlySo basically what I m trying to say is that the writing wasn t bad and the characters weren t bad even though they are pretty boring too but pretty much everything about Crossed was incredibly vague and confusing And forget about action because there wasn t any There was a lot of description but unfortunately not in the places where I actually needed it This is similar to how Matched was written but I can forgive Matched because it was the first book in the series and there was at least some action going on I expected that in this second book there would be explanation about the Society and the Enemy but unfortunately I was left even confused than I was at the end of the first book Crossed just seemed like a lot of aimless wandering around without actually getting anywhere And it is very frustrating when you read something like this for the entire length of a book but nothing is ever really explained about what everyone is trying to accomplish and whySo I don t know For me this is just one those series that meets my most basic standards of being good but never leads up to anything that really makes it stand out as being incredible or even really memorable I thought that the writing was good if somewhat bland in places the narrative flowed well between Cassia and Ky s points of view and there was nothing outwardly annoying in this book besides the fact that I can t find a motivation for anything in this plot for the life of me My final comment would be meh And I hate having that reaction to a bookLea LC s Adventures in Libraryland Warrior Rising yeah and what was going on between Ky and Indie Was anybody else wondering that Were they attracted to each other I couldn t tell

Free read ✓ Crossed by Ally Condie ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Free download Crossed by Ally Condie HopeBut on the edge of society nothing is as it seemsA rebellion is risingAnd a tangled web of lies and double crosses could destroy everythin. I really wanted to like this book But I found the task impossible While I loved Matched I think Condie did not keep up the original ideas tight plot and romantic suspense that worked in the first book She tries using two narrators but does not distinguish their voices Other than the heading on the top of each chapter to delineate who was talking it was almost impossible to figure out who was the narrator The plot was completely lackluster Nothing really happens Most of the events in this book could have been condensed into less than 100 pages but instead Condie drags them out with sappy scenes of her two lovebirds I like a little love story with my dystopian fiction but this was overboard She also seems to be under the impression that readers think there might be a chance Cassia will end up with Xander We all know she s going to end up with Ky So why drag out the supposed love triangle It just made me feel that Condie doesn t respect the intelligence of her readersI enjoyed Condie s beautiful writing in the first book but I think she might have let the positive reviews of Matched go to her head Her use of forbidden poetry was not as interesting in Crossed and the poetry she tries to use in her own prose was too much It got to the point where I was skimming because I just didn t care any and I could tell Condie wasn t going anywhere special I was profoundly disappointed I gave this two stars instead of one because I think teens might get through this book without complaint and because it was an easy read I m always angry if I ve put a lot of time into reading a book only to be disappointed Crossed only reuired a few hours
