Shay has switched sides one too many times for me. I can't keep them straight anymore. And, while I understand that the whole premise of the books is that Tally keeps getting various brain-altering surgeries that change who she is, it makes it very difficult to see what is actually Tally's character and which of her flaws are due to Westerfeld's not writing deep characters very well. This was a rollicking adventure story, but, again, doesn't hold up well under close scrutiny. Also: WHY does Tally ALWAYS have to be in love with some guy??
