Book #50 - Pretties

Scott Westerfeld

Blurb: Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted.

But beneath all the fun -- the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom -- is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.

Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life -- because the authorities don't intend to let anyone with this information survive.(From Goodreads)

Length: Medium - 370 pages

Notes: When I read Uglies, everyone told me that they liked Uglies the best out of the series. So far, I'd have to say I agree. I liked Pretties, but it definitely felt like the middle book of a series. It almost felt like it was just holding a place for what is going to happen in the next book. The "pretty talk" was really annoying, and I'm glad that as the book went along, the pretty talk was used less and less. It's always disappointing when the subsequent books of a series don't live up to the first book, but I still enjoyed this book.

Random quote : "Nature was tough, it could be dangerous, but unlike Dr. Cable or shay, or peris-unlike people in general-it made sense. The problems it threw at you could be solved rationally."

Recommend: Hmmm, I don't know...

Have you read this book? Share your feelings!
