Just before their sixteenth birthdays, when they will will be transformed into beauties whose only job is to have a great time, Tally's best friend runs away and Tally must find her and turn her in, or never become pretty at all.
  1. 352
    Els Jocs de la Fam de Suzanne Collins (elephantshoe, liberlibri, electronicmemory)
    elephantshoe: futuristic world again, but the teens have to compete and fight to the death in a televised reality show.
  2. 220
    The Giver de Lois Lowry (KamTonnes)
    KamTonnes: Uglies and The Giver both portray societies that limit conflict by having very specific rules, roles, and expectations for everyone. Also, in both stories, the main characters slowly start to question the values of their respective communities.
  3. 90
    Matched de Ally Condie (kqueue)
    kqueue: Another story about a 'perfect' society that is deeply flawed once you look beneath the surface. Both feature strong heroines who fight against the powers in control, and both have themes of independence and free will.
  4. 80
    Un món feliç de Aldous Huxley (TheBentley)
  5. 70
    Inside Out de Maria V. Snyder (flemmily)
    flemmily: Very similar heroines in similarly closed-off, oppressive worlds. Similar emphasis on an unknown "outside." Similar environmental emphasis, although Westerfeld focuses more on nature, whereas Snyder deals more with issues of population control.

    The House of the Scorpion de Nancy Farmer (goodiegoodie)
  7. 70
    Delirium de Lauren Oliver (LauraT81, BookshelfMonstrosity)
    LauraT81: Very similar dystopian societies where an operation is meant to subdue the members.
    BookshelfMonstrosity: In these intense dystopian novels, teenage girls start to question the life-changing operation their oppressive government mandates for teens. Both girls redefine their values and grapple with the possibility of escaping to a rebellious colony in the wilderness.… (més)

    Pretties de Scott Westerfeld (ysar)
  11. 40
    The White Mountains de John Christopher (KingRat)
    KingRat: The White Mountains contains issues similar to those of Uglies: secret control of a society, "mind control", induction into that society, and rebellion against it while pretending to be a member. There are obvious major differences too. Still, enough similarities in style and substance that I suspect people who enjoy one will enjoy the other.… (més)

    Extras de Scott Westerfeld (ysar)

It was good interested to see how the movie will hold up ( )
  Frogiekins04 | Jan 27, 2024 |
(K)(2006) A good science fiction tale that was released as a young adult novel. In a future time, everybody is required to go thru an operation that turns them into ?Pretties? so that nobody has differences that cause problems. Similar to the precept of a Twilight Zone episode. Tally is urged by another ?ugly? to rebel against the norm, which leads her to the Smoke where other uglies try to live a normal life. Fifteen-year-old Tally's eerily harmonious, postapocalyptic society gives extreme makeovers to teens on their sixteenth birthdays, supposedly conferring equivalent evolutionary advantages to all. When a top-secret agency threatens to leave Tally ugly forever unless she spies on runaway teens, she agrees to infiltrate the Smoke, a shadowy colony of refugees from the "tyranny of physical perfection." At first baffled and revolted by the rebels' choices, Tally eventually bonds with one of their leaders and begins to question the validity of institutionalized mutilation--especially as it becomes clear that the government's surgeons may be doing more than cosmetic nipping and tucking. Although the narrative's brisk pace is more successful in scenes of hover-boarding action than in convincingly developing Tally's key relationships, teens will sink their teeth into the provocative questions about invasive technology, image-obsessed society, and the ethical quandaries of a mole-turned-ally. These elements, along with the obvious connections to reality programs such as Miami Slice, will surely cause this ingenious series debut to cement Westerfeld's reputation for high-concept YA fiction that has wide appeal.

My wife commented that this (audio)book moved very slowly. I hardly noticed until she mentioned it. I give [a:Scott Westerfield|163958|Scott A. Westerfield|http://www.goodreads.com/images/nophoto/nophoto-U-50x66.jpg] credit for that. To fully realize the SF environment, he didn't feel compelled to compress or rush his narrative. To give his characters depth, he gave them time to express themselves. I have already checked the sequel out from the library. ( )

The Uglies books are the perfect parables of adolescent life, where adult-imposed milestones, rituals, and divide-and-rule tactics amp children's natural adolescent insecurities into a full-blown, decade-long psychosis.
