Pretties (Uglies #2) – Scott Westerfeld

The problem I have with series reviews is that I find it difficult to give them a review without ruining the first book. So I might just have to type what I think and hope I don’t spoil too much for anyone!
First of all… WOW! I love this series so far, I really hope that the library have the third in when I return this one cos I really can’t wait to read it! 😀
I love the world that’s created in this series, but at the same time I hate it. Everyone should have a choice and this second book is a lot to do with Tally thinking about choices, if she made the right ones, if she could help the ones she made, if she was at all in charge of her own choices! I understood exactly how Tally felt when she was running through things in her mind about Zane and David.
I liked that Tally had managed to take control of her thoughts, maintain herself once she’d turned pretty. I love strong female characters and Tally is definitely one of those! However I didn’t like Zane, I’m a very sceptical person and I didn’t trust him, I thought that perhaps he was sent by Dr Cable to get information about Tally and what she was up to but I guess I should be more trusting, by the end of the book I liked him, but I think I’ll always prefer David.
I also love the tattoos that Tally and the Crims get, WOW! I want a tattoo that shows my heartbeat, it’s such an awesome idea!
I want to go straight onto the next one because I can’t wait to see what happens next, I need to know if Tally gets to see the smokies again, I need to know what happens to Zane, I need to know about the cutters. Man I have to get to my library! I may even be forced to buy it if the library doesn’t have it in!! :/
There was never a point where I was bored in this book, I read it and read it, only stopping when I had to, I found it so gripping that I had to force myself to stop whilst reading it on my lunch break because my break was over! I loved Uglies and I didn’t think I could love Pretties more but I really do. As soon as I have enough money I will be buying this series and forcing everyone around me to read it!!

    This is definitely a great series! I loved it!! I hope you get Specials soon, and then follow it up with Extras!

    The Uglies series is one of my favorite dystopians, because Tally is undeniably hard core, she’s true to herself and to what she believes in, and just basically rocks. And, the other characters are pretty great too. 🙂 I hope you keep enjoying the series!
