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.
She never wore it at night, an old habit from when she'd been an ugly, sneaking out all the time. It sat there Softly pulsing, still muted for sleeptime. “Oh Just woke up.” “Well forget semi anything.

All they ever did in the ugly days was sneak out and maybe cross the river a few times. They never even made it to the Smoke.” The song ended just then, and Tally's last word fell into sudden silence. She tried to think of what to say, ...
Except ugly.” “I don't know, we could cut down trees or burn oil or something.” Tally laughed. “This is a costume, Shay-la, not a lifestyle.” Shay spread her arms and said more things, trying to be bubbly. “We could smoke tobacco?
Best ugly trick in history!” "Sure . . . but why are you on fire?” Tally asked. “I mean, its not Crim if the buildings really on fire.” Shay was giving Tally a look like she was saying something bogus again.

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
