5.0 out of 5 stars Great Filler! 23 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I finally got Crossed in my hands, after a year of waiting and it did not disappoint. I wasn't expecting too much (it is filler after all) but it does really deliver for me. It's not action packed and the characters spend the majority of their time wandering around the same place, but the new characters and events that happen really made me fall in love with story. The new characters are Vick, Eli and Indie (suitably Dystopian sounding names), and they really add a new layer to the story. I particularly liked Indie, whose character develops more throughout the book and she almost felt like a real person to me. Vick is similar in that he also develops through the story and after telling his past to Ky, also becomes like a real person.

The environment itself, is rather barren. This was expected - wandering around the inside of a Canyon was not. Something more desert-like, similar to the Scorch Trials was what I expected but the inside of a Canyon is certainly an interesting idea.

Ky's side of the story is a nice touch as well. I'm not if he feels so familiar because Cassia knows him so well, or because his voice is very similar to that of Cassia's.

I should mention the similarities between this and Scott Westerfeld's Uglies, as that series is a favourite of mine. Cassia, like Tally, believes in what her society is doing and is looking forward to her future, in the societies grasp. Until a stranger (in Cassia's case, Ky, and Tally's case, Shay) turns up and they see the Society for what it is and escape. Somewhere along the way they are separated and have to find each other again. And of course there's a Rebellion wandering somewhere around the middle of nowhere. I hold the hope that this is just a coincidence, however.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 24 Nov 2011
By Jess Hearts Books VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I was a huge fan of Matched when it came out last year and have been pining for Crossed ever since. I went into this book with high expectations, the back of the book talks about a rebellion rising and the picture of Cassia breaking out of the bubble made me think things were going to EXPLODE in this sequel but sadly I was left disappointed.

I started this book really confused. It's been a long time since I read Matched, as I'm sure it has been for a lot of people, and I couldn't really remember the ending. With a lot of books this isn't really an issue as authors are usually pretty good at re-capping past events. Yeah that didn't happen with this one, and so I spent the first hundred pages kind of confused. Luckily as I read on I managed to figure stuff out on my own and snippets came back to me but if your memory of Matched is a bit fuzzy like mine was I would really recommend re-reading Matched before starting Crossed.

Crossed is told from both Cassia and Ky's perspective which I think had both its pro's and con's. In Matched I really liked both Ky and Xander but if I had to pick one I'd probably of gone with Xander. This book really gives us a chance to get to know Ky better and I was really touched by the parts where we see Cassia through his eyes. However I didn't think that Ally Condie did a good job at making Cassia and Ky's voices distinctive from one another. Despite stating their names at the beginning of each chapter their voices were so similar that I had to constantly flick back to see whose perspective I was supposed to be reading from because there was no distinction between them other than a name stated at the beginning of each chapter.

There were some things I did like about this book.

Ky was taken from Cassia, sent to fight in a war with an unknown Enemy. Cassia will do anything to get him back, including sacrificing everything. So she follows him to the Outer Provinces to the place of the war, risking death. Only to find that he has gone already, left with two others to save their lives. Cassia follows again, this time joined by fellow work-camp girl Indie. Bit something bigger is going on: a rebellion is rising, and it is larger than Cassia every thought it could be. Could this rising have something to do with the mysterious Enemy Ky was sent to fight? On the very brink of Society, nothing is what it first seems to be.

When I read Matched, I was stunned by the writing and the world. I really couldn't wait to get back there and find out what the hey was goin' on in the Society! And I found Crossed even better than Matched. Beaufiul writing, forbidden love, death and a mysterious Enemy made Crossed faster-paced and way more interesting to me. The new cast of characters only added to the new feel in a really, really good way.

Meet the new, improved Cassia Maria Reyes! She's actually fighting back, resisting, on the run. And I am just loving the stronger version of her! And, she's still so clueless, so naive, so innocent: I loved seeing everything through her eyes - the most mundane things was wondrous and magical to her. At the very end we see yet another whole new side of Cassia. I can't wait for Book Three, just to see where she goes next!

And Ky: I finally, completely understand what Cassia saw in him! He's been through so, so much, and knowing more about his background and everything he's been through just made me fall totally in love with him. He's still fighting back, and I love the rebelliousness!

Everyone has something of beauty about them. In the beginning for me, it was Ky’s eyes I noticed, and I love them still. But loving lets you look, and look, and look again. You notice the back of a hand, the turn of a head, the way of a walk. When you first love, you look blind and you see it all as the glorious, beloved whole, or a beautiful sum of beautiful parts. But when you see the one you love as pieces, as whys—why he walks like this, why he closes his eyes like that—you can love those parts, too, and it’s a love at once more complicated and more complete. &quote;
