I made it through book three in this four book trilogy and just can t stomach reading any I m just so sick of Tally wa and Shay la and all of their bubbly and icy speak that I m totally hurly making Maybe if I hadn t read them so quickly it wouldn t be this horrible Book one was a definite keeper After that, they fell apart mostly because of the annoying pretty speaking that they do I will be totally amazing missing by skipping the last book, probably, but it s a chance I m willing to take.

Jackie PellecchiaEnglishMs PeritoreApril 9, 2012The SpecialsNon fiction and realistic books tend to keep me interested than fictional stories with magic I am interested in these types of books because I rather read a book about something that could happen rather than something that is all imagination Scott Westerfield is a great author and does a great job of combining both of these elements in all of his books I am truly fascinated in his set of books which include The Uglies, The Pretties, and The Specials.Westerfield is a very descriptive and detailed writer This book is based off of the two previous books This book begins with Tally now being a cutter A cutter is a branch of the specials whose leader is Shay Tally finds herself disguised as an uglie at a party trying to watch for any party crashers Since Tally is now a special she is almost completely perfect Her bones are strong, her muscles can heal themselves, and she has great senses She can even smell a smokey that crashes the party Smokies use pills and nanos that can destroy brains, this happened to Tally s boyfriend She goes to get the smokey who has these but he gets away by being rescued by hoverboards with someone from Tally s past, David The cutters are now all in a race to capture the smokies David is now Shay and Tally s enemy The smokies kidnapped Shay and another cutter and stole the Specials hoverboards When Tally meets back up with Shay she realizes that the pills were supposed to be delivered to the Crims, and the Crim they were for were Zane, Tally s boyfriend Even though Zane s brain was damaged due to the pills he is still trying to give them out to pretties, he is still one also Tally asks Zane to help her take down the smokies Are Tally and Shay going to survive Is Zane going to help It is very easy to get into these books because there is another one after it, so you want to know what will happen in this one, but it also leaves it up to your imagination what is the next one about Westerfield does a great job at having a lot of plots in one book The subject of the book is never just one thing I like these books because there are real life concepts behind the magic This book is based on Tally s life and what she does What will she do next I remember reading this series when I was in middle school going through my Twilight Phase and always wondered why this wasn t a movie I love this series so much, it s not just about a boy and a girl it s about the things around them It s about what happens when they turn 16 and finally get to be a Pretty I love this series because its very original and it s so creative It really is one of my favorite series even if I read it like five years ago, that s how good it is that I still consider it one of my favorites Xo Leisha I LOVED these books Scott Westerfeld has such andinteresting writing style He started off uglies great right away talking about the salmon cat vomit pink sky I hate when it takes a couple chapters for the book to be good. 3 stars for the series as a whole This series has a really great concept and some good aspects, but it lacks quite enough emotional depth and ends up being somewhat superficial as a result Uglies is about a world in which everyone is considered by default ugly and has to become pretty The book certainly benefits from this smart concept this is a world where beauty rules Unfortunately, the interesting connections to our world aren t explored enough in this series Pretties are stupid, Uglies have their brains It s nothing new Tally and Shay are each interesting characters with believable inner conflict They re flawed and their friendship is flawed, but they parallel each other in interesting ways I almost wish we could ve gotten both their points of view Unfortunately, this series goes all over the place in terms of plot and character growth There s no solid arc for Tally and Shay they have emotions, then go back to being terrible because of an operation, then they develop again Tally has three different character arcs because she keeps having her brain remodeled I have to admit, it was quite disappointing It gets old after the second time her character regresses Tally s ending as a character after four books is pretty good she s changed a lot and lost many of her emotions, but she s not a robot Her morally ambiguous character during books three and four was a lot of fun While I didn t like Specials as much at the time, in hindsight it might be my favorite for Tally s slightly psychotic yet way interesting character Despite the fact that the twist at the end of book two was AWESOME However, I question the need for her in between reset to become a Pretty All that happens in book two is a romance What was the need If I were to rewrite the series, I would ve skipped Pretties and instead left Tally as an Ugly Another issue with this series is the badly written romance The love triangle especially is just a fail David is the love interest for this book, and he s a decent guy and decent character, but it s hard to ignore that he s supposedly dating Shay at the time he kisses Tally Zayn, in the second book, is flat out annoying He s reckless and tiresome, and their entire relationship is based off his hotness There s no need for the love triangle here, and frankly, both plots could ve been executed better The conclusion for Tally and Zayn is especially messy This isn t so much a review as a compilation of thoughts God knows what my views would be today Just see how you feel after reading the review, I guess. Books 1 3 are 5 star ratings and the 4th book is 4 stars. Quite a nice quick read with tons of social moral and ethical questions raised I want call it on a similar level of Orwell s 1984 but with a strong focus for YA readers and not nearly quite as dark or hopeless.Uglies A little slow start on this one and the teenage babble was a little tedious at first and then I realize that was the whole plan Make the reader so bombarded with Tally s quest to be pretty that when truth and reality hit her it crashed her entire world and forced her to see things from a very antiquated point of view 3.5 out of 5 starsPretties Much faster paced than the first book and it took us right into the world of the Pretties and how ones core can stay fairly constant in spite of any meddling that might happen I was hoping for a bit of David in this one but it didn t detract from the read Some parts did get a little annoying such as the whole Dr Cable conspiracy 3 out of 5 starsSpecials Quite a nice thrilling ending to the trilogy The concept of right vs wrong were nicely blurred and neither side had all the answers or even the best way or living Which side should reign its very difficult to make judgment on either as both are riddled with pros and cons I also liked the fact that there wasn t any real winners at the end and everything is left quite open ended to succeed or fail 4 out of 5 starsEntire series not quite a perfect average but I m giving 4 stars because of the unresolved ethical issues that the last book tied everything around and the overtones that superficial beauty can never take the place of ones identity. As I typed in the titles of this series I realised this is one of the few times that having the story divided into separate books actually makes sense, rather than just a chapter divide In each story our heroine is basically a different person and is dealing with a different aspect of the futuristic society Hard not to give spoilers in this review I will say the first book was hard to finish It s like YA writing from A to B And I didn t like the betrayal of the girlfriend it seemed unnecessary In fact, all the romantic elements might well have been left out None of them felt true, or particularly important, just thrown in because they were expected Those relationships would have been better as friendships and still worked as they do as motivators for the plot I also found some logic problems why make everyone look the same then allow them to dye their hair different colours Get tattoos All distinguishing marks that could lead to preference of one person over another which the surgery was supposed to eliminate and make everyone equal.That said, once I finished the first book I had to read the second and was delighted it was so different, the same with the third and the fourth is a great summary finisher and is quite funny as well Get through the first book and the rest are a terrific read.
