    1. I need to never run into Scott Westerfeld down a dark alley, or during a Civil War reenactment, or at Charlton Heston's house, or wherever. My deep desire not to be arrested for murder would have an epic battle with my need to reach for a weapon when I see his stupid face. In all fairness, as you see, I coughed up three stars for this book, so I will clarify that my empty threatening is really directed toward Pretties and Specials (books two and three in this series). I'm posting this review on [...]

    2. So my wife and I occasionally swap books which may seem a little kooky. However, you have to keep things spicy when you’ve been married as long as we have and since nipple showers with hot candle wax make me break out into shouts of “FUCKARELLA THAT HURTS” we needed some alternative sizzle. So she hooks me up with this little philly of a novel while I matched her with The Lies of Locke Lamora. Well…my wife loved the book I set her up with… I knew she would because it is all over awesom [...]

    3. I’ve only seen one episode of The Twilight Zone. In this episode, a woman undergoes a battery of surgeries to look normal. At the end of the episode, viewers learn that this latest surgery has failed: the woman is still hideous. Except that to the audience she is beautiful. Online research led me to another episode where teenagers are surgically altered to live longer and conform to a unified standard of beauty (based on a limited number of acceptable “models”). “Uglies,” Scott Westerf [...]

    4. Nope, couldn’t finish it. Sigh. I thought I was going to like this one. It started off fine and all. And then everything fell apart. Yes, that dramatic.Am I the only one who was deeply offended by this piece of crap ? This book is wrong, wrong, wrong.The writing itself isn’t particularly… well, isn’t anything really. But this is supposed to be a book about beauty with a big B and the writing doesn’t do justice to the theme. I’d even call it Ugly. The characters are stereotyped. Tally [...]

    5. Do you know that feeling, when you really want to punch a character in the face? Well, Tally Youngblood, you must be grateful that I can't see your face.Now I should stop the rant the book itself was a quick read, but I don't get the hype. Enjoyable, yes. Good, not that much. I'm not really sure if I'll ever finish this series. Maybe one day if I'm actually bored.

    6. I remember my initial disappointment when Scott Westerfeld switched from adult sf to YA fiction. How could he do this to me? I liked his books, but I don't wanna read a dopey YA novel!I'd read in an interview that it was mostly a financial decision--the YA market has exploded, and that's where the money is right now. How can you fault a guy for trying to make a living?As a junior high Language Arts teacher, it's impossible not to notice that Westerfeld's first YA series has done extremely well. [...]

    7. Three hundred years after an apocalyptic-sized disaster that reshaped the world, Tally is about to turn 16 and pretty. In her contained, isolated, self-sufficient city - just like all the other contained, isolated, self-sufficient cities - the operation to make her pretty will be intensive, extreme and, as far as she and everyone else alive is concerned, absolutely worth it. Once she's pretty, she'll go to live across the river in New Pretty Town and party the nights away, loved by all.It's a sh [...]

    8. I loved this book for what it is: a reminder of my childhood and a beautiful story about accepting yourself for who you are. RTC. - - - THIS JUST IN: SCOTT WESTERFELD IS WRITING FOUR NEW NOVELS IN THE UGLIES WORLD AND IT IS LIKE MY CHILDHOOD HAS BEEN BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE. IT IS GOING TO BE CALLED IMPOSTORS AND COMES OUT SEPTEMBER 11TH AND MY LITTLE HIGH SCHOOL HEART IS BEATING AGAIN I REPEAT BEATING AGAIN. REREADING THIS NOW AND THEN I WILL TELL YOU GUYS HOW MUCH I STILL ABSOLUTELY LOVE ITDFJERO [...]

    9. Seeing this book always popping up every time I searched for best YA novels, I knew I just HAD to read this. I've been actually saving this trilogy for a special reading occasion because I am really into dystopians and discovering this series was written even before the Hunger Games, I expected that I will be more than impressed. Sad to say, the book did not meet my expectation. Sure, the concept is cute- every one at the age of 16 gets operated on to become pretty while every body else is consi [...]

    11. "Uglies" is about Tally Youngblood, who is about to turn sixteen, much to her liking. This is a futuristic novel, and when you turn sixteen you get an operation to make you "pretty". What being pretty means is that you have all your bones taken and ground, your skin re-sized and your whole entire body is basically re-done. Like a huge surgery. The thing is, during her wait to turn sixteen (Tally was the youngest in her group of friends) she meets a girl named Shay, who doesn't want to get the op [...]

    12. I go a little crazy if I read more than one Margaret Atwood novel a year. I hope I'm not alone in this. I get the feeling that Atwood's sharp, but her writing is filed to a finer edge. I realized a while ago that one book per year was enough.I have a similar reaction to Stephen King, though I'm not sure why. I really loved The Stand, but when it was over I knew that I wasn't going to read another of his works for a while.At first, I thought this meant that I didn't like Stephen King and Margaret [...]

    13. 33% DNF. No rating because there is nothing wrong with the book. I think I am just not the target audience. It was written in 2005 and on the young end of the YA scale. I think I have just outgrown books like this. I think I am fairly certain what is going to happen. It's just not holding my interest.I've had this book on my TBR shelf for a long time, so I'm glad to know one way or the other and be able to get it off my list.If you are thinking about reading it, it's about a society in the futur [...]

    14. 3.5I absolutely love diving into dystopian worlds and this is a YA series I have been meaning to start for years just never got round to it - so happy I finally have!Tally has grown up in a society where you are made to believe that you're ugly. As soon as you turn 16, however, you're given the rights to an operation to turn you from an 'ugly' to a 'pretty' and Tally cannot wait for this day. Things take a slight turn when Tally's friend Shay doesn't want to become pretty and runs away to The Sm [...]

    15. At an unspecificied time in the future everyone turning sixteen is given surgery to become "pretty." Tally Youngblood is young woman, counting down the days to the procdure which despite being extremely intensive is considered worth it for a life of luxury and decadence among her peers. She's waiting to be reunited with her best friend and enjoy the life of being pretty together.That is until she meets Shay. The two bond over having lost all their friends to the surgery and waiting to join them. [...]

    16. Things become quite one-sided (or 1-dimensional) in this YA dystopian yarn that imagines stuff in a half-assed kind of way (repressive governing scientists: too uninteresting an antagonist, a teenaged character with absolutely zero references to the parental unit, scant description/character development) presenting tropes for the new young'uns (and hopeful lifelong readers) to gawk at but offering nothing much too pleasant for the reader that's more enthralled by the complexities of that OTHER Y [...]

    17. “What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.”I really liked this since it were a bit different from other dystopian books I've read. The whole beauty surgery thing were a bit creepy though, because it feels like something that could happen in the future. We're already obsessed with our looks and beauty surgeries are quite common today. The names of cities and the social age groups were really bad though, it felt like something a 10 year old would have come up with. Also I had a bit [...]

    18. After finishing 425 pages that I couldn't put down, I'm finding myself needing to buy the next in the series as soon as possible. No wonder editors are getting copy-cat novels similar to this from aspiring writers.Uglies tells the story of a post-apocalyptic dystopia where everyone gets a surgery at age 16 to make them "pretty" with a perfect body, perfect face, and diminished personality. This surgery is supposed to prevent people from having an unfair advantage in the workplace because of the [...]

    19. I'd heard of this book before, but I didn't realize it was futuristic. The story line is one you've all heard before--in the future, everyone is forced into some nutso plastic surgery which makes you gorgeous, and of course, the post ops spend all day living it up and having a grand ol' time because they're brainwashed and beautiful. It sounds kinda like an ok life, but there are some folks who are like, "Hellz no, you ain't cuttin' me, beyotch!" So these folks have to become renegades, and that [...]

    20. •2.5 αστεράκια•Ξεκίνησα να το διαβάζω έχοντας μεγάλες προσδοκίες για αυτό, αλλά δεν δεν δεν. Από τις σπάνιες φορές που δεν συμπαθώ ούτε ταυτίζομαι με κανέναν χαρακτήρα. Μου φάνηκαν αρκετά βαρετές οι πρώτες 200 σελίδες. Μετά βέβαια σε αποζημιώνει με λίγη δράση και ένα τέλος πο [...]

    21. An enjoyable YA dystopian novel…This isn’t as “deep” as some – the The Giver, for example – but it still explores dystopian themes and does so through the eyes of a teenager, using motivations that a teenager would understand…I first picked this book up because one of my own teenagers was reading it. Interested, I read the blurb and couldn’t decide if I should worry or not: did it sound interesting or horrifying? I mean let’s start with the idea that one of my daughters was rea [...]

    22. 4,75Wow, que mundo. Que historia. Me encanto espero seguir con la historia pronto porque ese final i mean, Scott, loquillo, terminar un libro así, no da,o sea no.Reseña completa en Gracias a los Libros.

    23. Σ’ έναν κόσμο τελειότητας όλοι οι έφηβοι υποβάλλονται σε εγχείρηση που εξαφανίζει όλες τις ατέλειες μετατρέποντας τους πάντες σε όμορφους. Η ευφυέστατη ιδέα κέντρισε εμένα και φυσικά τους περισσότερους αναγνώστες, όμως ο συγγραφέας -Scott Westerfeld -δεν εκμεταλλεύεται τις ενδι [...]

    24. Real rating: 3.5Well,this was fun.After reading a bazillion bad reviews I thought that this will be really,really bad.But it's not,it's quite amusing actually.The main character,Tally,is really cool.I liked her a lot and I completely understood all of her actions,which is a really rare thing for me.I liked the story line and the whole concept of separating ugly *cough*normal*cough* and pretty people.I also liked the new technology described and used in this book-I'd love to try those hoverboards [...]

    25. Ο κόσμος στο παρελθόν είχε καταστραφεί από την έλλειψη πετρελαίου. Στη σύγχρονη εποχή, είναι όλοι μαζεμένοι σε μεγάλες πόλεις και όλοι οι νέοι μετά από κάποια ηλικία υποβάλλονται σε μια σειρά επεμβάσεων, όπου τους καθιστούν όμορφους (πολύ εμβιομηχανική πέφτει εδώ πέρα) και [...]

    26. Okay, so this book was really good! I want to finish Throne of Glass before I move on to Pretties, but I really liked this book! The first and last lines of this book were just. interesting? My favorite character was Shay, she was so awesome! I hope everything ends up working out for her in the end. Maddy was also pretty awesome. For a woman who is like fifty, she is pretty athletic and awesome! David was a good character, especially when he explained the Rusties. Oh, the Rusties. Tally's view o [...]

    27. I love this series! Although a little strange, these books are original, exciting, and enjoyable. After reading Uglies, I went on to read every single book by Scott Westerfeld that I could find. Now he is one of my favorite authors, and I recommend everything that he's written.

    28. All in all, I was VERY impressed with Uglies. Westerfeld is now one of my favorite writers, not only for his immense creativity but also for his ability to blend the JUST RIGHT amount of action, description, and dialogue. This may sound like a weird comparison, but Scott Westerfeld reminds me of a gourmet chef: he knows how to measure out and mix together the right concoction of ingredients in order to make a delicious product!It made reading Uglies a fun and smooth experience. Let's face it, it [...]

    29. So it took me five days to read this book but it felt like I was reading it for about two weeks. It was so slow and so painful. This book is very overrated, I just don't understand how it's so popular. It never grabbed me and so I just wasn't interested. I'm giving it 2 stars because I'm feeling generous. What I liked: - The type of world Scott Westerfeld created. At first I thought it was a silly premise but as the story progressed and I found out more about the world Tally was living in, I und [...]

    30. WELL THAT WAS GREAT. WOW. WOW. 4.4 STARS. WOOOOO IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!I got this book over a year ago, I received it for Christmas 2011, and had specifically asked for it because I had heard such great hype around it. I tried picking it up around the Christmas period and only got a few pages in and giving up because I was just not in the mood. A couple of days ago though, I have no idea why, I just felt it. Something from above said "You feel like reading Uglies!" And boy, was it just what I neede [...]
