I almost wanted to go back and re-evaluate the first 2 parts. I realized what it is that bugs me in these books. Tally really doesn't have much of agency. Things just kind of happen to her and all cute/smartest/coolest guys just fall for her for no reason. You never really learn anything interesting about the characters and basically the same story is told 3 times in the 3 books. I think what kept me reading was the style which kept things going, but I would say this was more of a plot driven (vs. character driven) book, but even for that there wasn't enough of a plot. Or maybe I think there really can't be a good plot, if the characters are not good. Also The whole David/Tally/Zane thing just seemed really forced and I didn't feel that there was any true feeling with either of the boys. And in the end, I just didn't like Tally very much. I would've loved to hear more about Shay, I thought she was much more interesting. ( )

Una serie da riscoprire e adatta ad un pubblico adlescenziale in cerca di contenuti validi. ( )

Third book in the series. It is pretty much the same story as the first 2 books in yet another guise, but still fun for a vacation read. This time, our heroine has become an Extra, with superhuman strength, hyper-senses, and built-in connection with her troop of "ultimate warriors". With her boyfriend lost to her, she tries to focus on her job and new life, but new information rocks her world again, unlocking new battles, both internal and external. ( )

I like the idea of these books, but this one was just not as good as the first two were. The same ideas and events seemed to recur as did in the second book. It wasn't until about 200 pages in did something interesting and different take place. There were also several instances of which were very confusing as to what was happening. ( )

I had to abandon this due to boredom. I just don't really care where the story goes at this point, nor do I like the protagonist. Uglies and Pretties were quite enjoyable and quick reads, but this one just didn't work for me. A bit too predictable and too much moping by the protagonist. Moving on because because there are so many other great books to read instead. I'd still recommend the series but just didn't see the need to finish it.

Specials is part parable of life as an adolescent struggling to define your identity in a conformist world; part dark and unflinching look at the very real mental disorders that this impossible circumstance visits upon many young people.

When the people of the world all know beauty as beauty,

There arises the recognition of ugliness.

There arises the recognition of evil.
