Other things that marred my enjoyment of this story...
I 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 ...more
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 -and more obn ...more
Ok, as far as the series is concerned, this is where I'm abandoning ship. I held on this long in hope that somehow you would bring me around and show me how to like Tally, but it kind of went the opposite direction, you know?
Anyway, I'm stopping here because youve given me no reason to continue. The fourth book, ...more
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 ...more
I read Uglies at the beginning of this year and really enjoyed it.. later on I read Pretties and was really disappointed. It took me a while to get around to Specials, but boy am I glad I did because I enjoyed it so much!
It had all of the action, emotion, moral dilemma, character development, and great story-telling as the first one!
I won't say too much more since I'm planning a review video, but I was so happy with this finale to the trilogy! YAY!
for the record i started out with the first in the series, uglies, but a week or so later i had torn thru the first three which seem to be the trilogy. there is another in the series but ...more
It is finally time for me to deal with Specials, the final book in the trilogy that began with
I have put off this review for a couple of days, because I honestly dont know how I feel about this one.
I think the main problem for me, is the fact that Specials is the conclussion to a trilogy, yet it certainly did not seem that way when I was reading it. Allow me to explain:

I truly disliked the Special Tally, because not only was she an asshole but because I really liked her in the previous books. I know it wasn't her fault she got turned Special but still...
The plot was full of intrigue and action, but the parts that disappointed me most were when Tally was a bitch to all her old friends, not to mention what she did to Zane... I found it even more annoying when she (view spoiler)[on more than one occasion, refused the cure to being Special-min ...more
So, first of all, here is a quick review:
Plot- it was rather interesting and there were some really action packed parts. On the other hand, I did not support some decisions made by Tally (even though I did understand them). It could have been much better. 3/5
Characters- Tally has a totally new personality (wh ...more
Scott Westerfeld concludes his remarkable trilogy with his final installment, Specials. (Yes, I said TRILOGY. In my opinion, Extras was merely an after thought.) With Tally now a Special, she has even more power to change the course of events in her life and in the world. And she does.
Specials was even better than its two predecessors, Uglies and Pretties, though they too, were great. Westerfeld continues to do an excellent ...more
Well, this book was annoying. I struggled with it for three days, but I just couldn't. While I generally enjoyed Uglies and Pretties, Specials were slow, boring and full of a bunch of either flat or completely unlikable characters.
After her operation to become a Special, Tally now acted and sounded like a robot. Honestly, there was now nothing about her anymore to make me care enough. I also never actially liked Shay from the very beginning of the series, but here she was just insuffer...more
So Shay is still one of the most annoying characters I've ever encountered. Honestly I just wanted to punch something every single time I saw her name. She's completely insane and I wish she had just never been in the books at all. Tally is instead pretty cool, although she's not one of my all time favorites. I mean she was interesting enough, but sometimes I found ...more
This is the 3rd book in the Uglies trilogy and while it was a good book it did not grab me as much as Uglies did. In a way it was sort of a repeat of Pretties taken up to another level. Tally once again has been transformed without her consent and has to “rewire” herself to remember who she really is. There is continued tension between she and Shay which I was really hoping would get resolved in a happy way. I would have liked to see more interaction between Tal ...more
