Well, I finished Uglies on Wednesday, but I haven’t been able to post until now… what’s wrong with me? I did enjoy it. In this society, everyone twelve to sixteen is ugly, until they turn sixteen and get an operation. Tally Youngblood, the main character, is about to reach her birthday when she meets a friend who doesn’t want to turn pretty, and the story goes on from there. However, some of the jargon in the book was a bit stupid, to be honest. Little kids are called “littlies.” Older people are called “crumblies.” Things are not awesome or cool, they are “bubbly”. And the three cities in Tally’s society are called Uglyville, for the ugly people, New Pretty Town, for the beautiful people, and then Crumblyville for older pretties and children. The friendship in the story was once again far better than the romance, and the action was very well-well written, and the characters were nicely done. I’ll probably read the next book.
So, onto book 9. I should have read this book a long time ago.
