The second installment of Scott Westerfeld’s New York Times bestselling and award-winning Uglies series—a global phenomenon that started the dystopian trend.
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.

“You didn't surge again, did you?" Tally asked, and Shay giggled. “You did. You're not supposed to more than once a week. Could you be any more missing?” “It's okay, Tally-wa. Just local.” “Where?” Shays face didn't look any different.
Shays face didn't look any different. Was the surgery hidden under her pajamas? “Look closer.” Shay's long lashes fluttered again. Tally leaned forward, staring into the perfect copper eyes, wide and speckled with jewel dust, ...
The expression that clouded Shay's face was tragic, sucking away the radiance of a moment before. She looked about to cry, except without puffy eyes or a red nose. New surge was always a delicate topic, like a new hairstyle, almost.
Now it was like someone gorgeous stood across from Tally, following her every move— someone whose face was in perfect balance, whose skin glowed even with a total hangover, whose body was beautifully proportioned and muscled.
The plastic face jarred something in Tally, a painful memory that took a moment to gel. ... back against one of the cool stone walls, remembering the gray silk coveralls that Specials wore and the cruel pretty faces they were given.

This was good, though I may have liked Uglies better. I wasn't happy with the ending, though I figured that something like it had to happen. (Sometimes knowing the title of the sequel is not such a good thing.) 閱讀評論全文

Having everything is can sometimes make it seem like you have nothing. Addressing the superficial world, as we follow her into this next world. Slower than Uglies. 閱讀評論全文
