The setting

The first book takes place in Maine, but the other books in the series take place in the wilds.

The characters

Lena- who is not pretty or ugly either. Alex thinks she is beautiful. Has fallen in love with Alex even though she wasn't suppose to.

Alex- honey-blonde hair and handsome. Loves Lena more than anything in the world.

The Similarities

Matched and Delirium are in a dystopian society.

They both are in love with someone that the society denies.

They both have a secret behind their stories. Like in delirium -How could Lena's mother be not dead -and in Matched -What made Ky aberration?

Cassia and Lena both had people they could relay on.

They are both the first book of series.

The differences

Matched is mainly about Cassia's Matched Banquet and who she was going to chose, but in Delirium it was about how to escape the society and it was clear that she only loved Alex.

In Matched they didn't have a safe place they could go to escape from the society or not that it has mentioned in the first book, but in the book Delirium they had a place to escape from the society-The Wilds.

In Matched Cassia had a good family to relay on, but in the book Delirium she only had Alex and her best friend Hana to relay on.

Delirium book's mystery was bigger than the mystery in the book Matched.


If you like Dystopian romance type of novels then I would recommend the Book Divergent. It is such a Awesome book. It has got Adventure, romance, Dystopian society and villains. What more could you ask for. I would recommend this book.

If you like Adventures in Dystopian kinds of novels then I would recommend the Matched and the Delirium books. Personally, I like the Matched books better because it got better and better as I kept reading it. I also like the Delirium books ,but it was more of a romance novel than a adventure novel.

But if you are not interested in those I would recommend the book The Giver. This book is kind of like Matched, but with less romance.
