PsstStephanie Wake up it s over Oh man Did I fall asleep again It s not my fault Really it isn t If only Crossed had just a little bit action and a lot less poetry it would have been able to keep my attention focused on reading the book instead of hitting my REM cycle That s not to say I didn t entirely enjoy Crossed but it also didn t live up to my expectations Crossed picks up where Matched left off Ky had been sent away to the Outer Provinces and Cassia is currently residing in a girl s work camp In this installment she travels to the Outer Provinces to find Ky while he somehow escapes the Outer Provinces to be reunited with Cassia back in the Society A few new discoveries are made regarding the Society and an apparent rebellion called the Rising Along the way enough poetry to give Maya Angelou a headache is recited and flashbacks to Ky s past are also included I had high hopes for this book mostly because I did enjoy Matched I enjoyed the Do not go gently theme and Condie s poetic writing style But for some reason it just didn t work out too well for me in Crossed I liked how the PoVs switched back and forth between Ky and Cassia In fact I am a fan of that particular style when done correctly However in this case I found it difficult to tell who was who Cassia and Ky s voice sounded exactly alike to me I found myself flipping back to the beginning of the chapters to confirm who was narrating Because of this I slowly felt myself becoming disconnected from the characters even with learning further details about Ky s past The CharactersOne thing I did enjoy about the book were the introduction of the minor characters While traveling to the Outer Provinces to find Ky Cassia teams up with a girl named Indie At first I really liked Indie because she was brave sharp and determined But around 77% of the book she seemed too sneaky to me and I didn t appreciate her lying to Cassia about the Rising At one point she even view spoilerasks Ky to travel with her to the Rising and leave Cassia hide spoiler

R rebellion an unexpected betrayal and a surprise visit from Xander who may hold the key to the uprising and still to Cassia's heart change the game once again Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society where crosses and double crosses make the path twisted than ev. 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

Rage Hardcore TURKEY RAGEHappy Thanksgiving all my American buddies by the wayWhat WAS THIS This was a book Really This didn t have the components of a bookOkaytotal components Allusions characters exposition characterizationThere really are no words properly defining my rage Ally Condie CANNOT tell a story A story should draw you in with its writing and send you off on an adventre that does a good job at blowing your mind Crossed did not do that It refused to do that In fact if it were a living person I d probably get beat up for asking what the story was Really it s not there I swear to you or else I d remember this bookAnd I don tAlreadyWhat does that tell you about my attention span for this thingyOnce upon a time in my junior year of high school I thought it d be fun to write a story And so I did Took me a year but I actually finished a whole draft by graduation I didn t look at it forever then beginning of my soph of college I looked back at it hated the fuck out of it and started rewriting it this time with the knowledge of how to write a series and using themes motifs character arcs climax system the worksMy baby s growing up so nicely and at the rate I m going I could be sending ueries by April Here s to hopingBut I can honestly say that the shitty choppy let me tell you a story and nothing else draft I finished in 2009 had depth than this discombobulated pile of rubbishCrossed had this blurb In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky taken by the Society to his certain death only to find that he has escaped leaving a series of clues in his wakeCassia s uest leads her to uestion much of what she holds dear even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky an invitation for rebellion an unexpected betrayal and a surprise visit from Xander who may hold the key to the uprising and still to Cassia s heart change the game once again Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society where crosses and double crosses make the path twisted than ever I will say that though the blurb is indeed true to an extent it is far far FAAAAR boring than it sounds And with a cover with as painful a position as this piece of workYeah No thanksI d like to look RELAXED when I m smushing my boobs and drinking coffee before getting on my toes and breaking my blue bubble shield Crossed attempts to tell the story of Cassia s struggles to find Ky and the Rising to stop the Enemy and the Society and the Capital Letters from being Misused or Strangely Placed in awKward positionS because it s STUPIDI m cool I m coollet s get to the breakdownLe writing As much as this book infuriates me above all reason I have to give a second star to Condie and her ability to incorporate awesome poetry as well as the ability to write some decent scenes I only wish these fabulous scenes existed THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE BOOK I mean the scene where Cassia and Ky finally reunite Brilliant Adorable Love it to bits Everything leading up to that Dull Slow Boring Way too many robotsBut as nicely as Condie can write when she feels like it it doesn t cut it This book is a huge massive mess We don t know what anyone is talking about and we re forced to cope Again Just like Book the First However guess what Cassia and Ky have that the Hunger Games cast doesn t CHARACTER ARCS YAAAAAAY Cassia is actually changing and thank god I see some sort of hope in this book even if the spine of the story is deteriorated to absolutely nothingI will reiterate Condie cannot write a story She cannot follow the POVs of two different characters It s different POVs for a reason Ky should not sound like Cassia and Eli should sound a lot younger than the oldest kid Hunter This comes into the importance of character voices I mean doing a voice should be easier in 1st person because you can use fragments and be as choppy as you damn well please I know I got a second story involving zombies It follows a hard working police officer and a cynical math sub who hates where his futures going What would happen if they sounded the same It would sound like this book It d be dull terrible and so snail paced it s not even funny Having structure also helps a fuckton but Condie doesn t know that yetI swear every time I felt myself getting bored my eyes would stare at the invisible camera like thisCharactersCassia and Ky were basically the same person They started out having difference but no they blended into one being by the end of Crossed I was happy though that we got a few new characters who were interesting and had voices all their own Eli and IndieIndie was the shit She was determined and fierce I fucking loved her I m so glad that we didn t get her POV because I feel that Condie was going to use her poetic magic to make her a robot like Ky and Cassia These characters have the potential they really do But again Condie just can t deliver I hate to say it I do but it pisses me off so much that this book fails because that potential is indeed there I see itI don t understand the need for the love triangle I keep forgetting that this was supposed to be one but it s clearly not happening any Xander has gotten no screen time in this series He s just a name that s plucked out of one of the bajillion blue tablets once in a while Ky s also grown into a dick so I say Cassia should just wander off on her ownAlso what about the rest of her family Cassia s all KY KY KY and not about Mr and Mrs Reyes Bram anybody Her best friend Emma That Norah chick or whoever Or how about that Mira girl from page 20 that we never see again ever My rule for those one scene characters is to give them at least a few lines of dialogue if I m going to name them I know I have a number in my first book but when they re there they are actually driving the plot THEY ARE DOING SOMETHINGThis was just bogus Nonsensical dumb stuffSPEAKING OF WHICHDAT PLOT STRUCTUREIf you tell me that there is proper structure in this bookThere is structure but it is a skeleton It follows a completely different premise of the first These two don t even feel like they LINK together you know Cassia just says I gotta find Ky in Matched and then POOF she s already at the Outer Provinces The fuck Oh and lemme list all the capitalized things in this book Because I found it necessaryReclassificationThe PilotThe RisingThe CarvingThe Outer ProvincesThe SocietyThe CitizensThe WarmingThe EnemyThe AberrationsThe AnomaliesThe WHY ARE YOU DOING THATOut of all those things I can really tell you in detail whatthree of them are Condie just lists these things like We don t want another Warming YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT THAT IS RIGHT Too bad we re moving along Like fuck woman you have to inform me what the hell the Warming was or what Anomalies are yeah we STILL don t know There are way too many uestions right now that are just blowing my mindThe world buildingI tell yaI was also left baffled by some of the concepts Condie brought up in this book One in particular the red tablets effects Apparently if one s immune to the red tablet they re part of the Rising How does that work Are they born in non Society boundaries Why didn t Ky know this If you re Reclassified how do the red tablets work THESE ARE IMPORTANT UESTIONSOh and I don t feel like I m spoiling on you for this There is no climax No hint of a resolution of ANY kind other than Derpaderp you found the Rising Like the blurb fucking said Cassia would And lemme tell you the paths are indeed twisted than everEvery book in a series should have a climax Not a big battle but something that will set the plans in motion for the next book This book like Matched just ends so fucking abruptly that I m left to go WHAT HUH WHY YOU DO THAT The way Condie ends things just kills me Nothing is getting explained nothing is getting worked out and I m sick of going on about this seriesIt is not goodIt s so annoying to readI can t keep doing this to myself I m gonna finish up a good book One that has a plot and an ending and words that tell a storyasdfjlkbg
