"This book shows so much about today. Everyone cares too much about the outside-pretty or ugly-and what people think. Westerfield is an amazing author and i most-definitely LOVED this book! I really recommend this to ALL kids-through age 110 .A thrilling novel! It is one-of-a-kind and there's no other book like it! it is one of the most unique and meaningful book I've ever read. Most girls & Guys can relate to Tally-the wanting to be pretty and exactly like everyone else-and it is so true. There were some very surprising things happening when Tally and Shay go on an adventure that will change both their live forever!! Will they become pretty or Special???? You should definitely read this never forgetting and unbelievable novel! hope you enjoyed what i thought of the book Uglies. Just to let u know EVERY book in this trilogy is AWSOME. The 4th Book is just as Good as all the rest. ENJOY & HAPPY READING!!!!"

Not too bad
Like Uglies, story line is great. Characters are getting out of control for my personal taste. It's almost annoying reading their conversations. After this book I really dislike the main character, Tally. To be a heroine she is way to selfish and yet she fights the system that enforces self. Granted, her character is only 16 so she is very immature. I was just hoping after reading Uglies that her character would take off more in leui of the steps she was making from book 1. Oh well. That's part of the treasure in finding a really fantastic book!

great sci-fi book
While this second in a trilogy is written for teens, I liked it as an adult; I can't wait to order and read the third one!
Publishers Weekly, 2005-10-17 Tally, the star of Uglies by Scott Westerfeld (which PW said, "raises thought- provoking issues") is now one of the Pretties, thanks to an operation that everyone from Uglyville gets when they turn 16, and which makes them gorgeous. In this sequel, a letter Tally discovers from her "former" self raises disturbing questions about what else may have occurred during the procedure. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
