I haven’t read the whole series, but this week I’ve decided to talk about Cassia & Ky from Matched by Ally Condie. If you’ve read my review of Matched, then you already know that Cassia kind of got on my nerves a little bit. However, I did like Ky. I have yet to talk about them as a couple though.
Ky is what I would like to call a free soul. He urges Cassia to be better and to explore. He makes her want to learn new things and see beyond the games the Society was playing with her. If you ask me, that is wonderful. I mean really, who doesn’t want a guy who does that? On top of that, Ky is handsome and loves Cassia.
For all her faults, Cassia is learning and changing. She’s realizing that all of the walls the Society has put up are utterly and completely wrong. And I have to hand it to her. Cassia knows what loyalty is and she will do whatever it takes to save Ky from the Society.
I feel like Ky and Cassia balance each other out. Together, I think they’re (if you’ll indulge me) the perfect match.
