    This disappointed me so much I really loved Uglies and there was a lot to admire about Pretties, but I found this to be a highly unsatisfactory conclusion I m still trying to figure out why it so completely failed to work for me I think mostly it s a case of character development Tally goes through a lot of mental and emotional changes in these books, which makes sense, because her brain is being fucked with In the first two books, Westerfeld took the time to explore these transitions, an This disappointed me so much I really loved Uglies and there was a lot to admire about Pretties, but I found this to be a highly unsatisfactory conclusion I m still trying to figure out why it so completely failed to work for me I think mostly it s a case of character development Tally goes through a lot of mental and emotional changes in these books, which makes sense, because her brain is being fucked with In the first two books, Westerfeld took the time to explore these transitions, and Tally s growth was really interesting However, by the time we get to book three and Tally s brain has been reset AGAIN, it s becoming frustrating and it doesn t help that in this final book Westerfeld doesn t take the time to explore what s really going on with her Add to that Shay s many reversals I kept expecting it to be revealed that she s totally PSYCHOTIC, but apparently not Zane ...

    So I didn t like Tally as much in this book Her personality has been altered by the special surgery, so she looks down on anyone who isn t special themselves Part of the plot line is that she is supposed to overcome this, but I didn t feel she completely did.Other things that marred my enjoyment of this storyI hated the cutting aspect Several times they talk about cutting, and how Icy it makes them feel Eventually Tally quit, but only because it was repugnant to Zane, then because s So I didn t like Tally as much in this book Her personality has been altered by the special surgery, so she looks down on anyone who isn t special themselves Part of the plot line is that she is supposed to overcome t...

    One thing I ve noticed about Westerfeld s novels is how bittersweet the endings are Although there is still a rainbow or fireworks to brighten the blow, there is still death, failure, destruction Westerfeld knows life will never have a happy ending, just a bittersweet one.Specials is no exception Although the novel starts off slow, it quickly builds up speed, carrying you along Tally s final journey She s now a Cutter, a Special Circumstances pet project Cutters are stronger andobn One thing I ve noticed about Westerfeld s novels is how bittersweet the endings are Although there is still a rainbow or fireworks to brighten the blow, there is still death, failure, destruction Westerfeld knows life will never have a happy ending, just a bittersweet one.Specials is no exception Although the novel starts off slow, it quickly builds up speed, carrying you along Tally s final journey She s now a Cutter, a Special Circumstances pet project Cutters are stronger andobnoxious than anyone, built to bring an end to the New Smoke Despite her new rank, though, Tally still feels amiss, and is determined to make Zane a cutter too One of things I really enjoyed is how different Tally becomes in each book From Ugly to Pretty to Spec...

    I have ambivalent feelings about this book It s fatally flawed in my opinion, both in tone and content The tone is adolescent hyper drama which is okay I suppose since it s written for a teen audience But, as an example of literature, it falls flat and since my interest in YA lit is exclusively how it might be used in the classroom or whether I can suggest the book for outside reading, I have to say, it s a problem Soaking in a gossipy, soap opera loop of teenage angst and action adventu I have ambivalent feelings about this book It s fatally flawed in my opinion, both in tone and content The tone is adolescent hyper drama which is okay I suppose since it s written for a teen audience But, as an example of literature, it falls flat and since my interest in YA lit is exclusively how it might be used in the classroom or whether I can suggest the book for outside reading, I have ...
