  1. This disappointed me so much I really lovedUglies and there was a lot to admire aboutPretties, but I found this to be a highly unsatisfactory conclusion I m still trying to figure out why it so completely failed to work for me I think mostly it s a case of character development Tally goes through a lot of mental and emotional changes in these books, which makes sense, because her brain is being fucked with In the first two books, Westerfeld took the time to explore these transitions, and Tally s [...]


  2. So I didn t like Tally as much in this book Her personality has been altered by the special surgery, so she looks down on anyone who isn t special themselves Part of the plot line is that she is supposed to overcome this, but I didn t feel she completely did.Other things that marred my enjoyment of this storyI 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 she told him s [...]


  3. I can t seem to write about this without giving away some plot elements from the first two books So, warning spoilers may arise.Well, Specials the final volume in the Uglies trilogy finally came up on my hold list at the library After finishing the novel I was in the middle of, I picked up Specials to wrap up all the loose ends I d been wondering about since Pretties had ended How would Tally fight her way out of being special What new insights into our my own existence would I find And, most im [...]


  4. One thing I ve noticed about Westerfeld s novels is how bittersweet the endings are Although there is still a rainbow or fireworks to brighten the blow, there is still death, failure, destruction Westerfeld knows life will never have a happy ending, just a bittersweet one.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 obnoxious than [...]


  5. Oh Scott I am so so proud of you Only 2 purchases in the whole book Such an improvement like you can think for yourself, like youre curing yourself of bogus making writing Bravo.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, though an [...]


  6. What happened It wasn t the greatest series I d ever read but c mon Did they give him time It was worse the the third movie sequel that shouldn t have had a second Where do I begin with this train wreck There wasn t one storyline that was wrapped up The plot was thrown together so hastily and it left holes and was as deep as an 80 s John Hughes film The ONE character I thought was interesting barely featured and fizzled out pathetically so much potential Also, the ending was the WORST I mean, i [...]


  7. I have ambivalent feelings about this book It s fatally flawed in my opinion, both in tone and content 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 adventure takes [...]


  8. WHAT A FANTASTIC FINALE WOW 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 since I m planning a review video, but I was so happy with this finale to the trilogy YAY


  9. Finally I have finished this series I have politely deleted the adjectives that I considered adding to describe series And even though I only spent about two hours on this one, skipping entire pages and frequently entire chapters, part of me still thinks that it was an hour too long If you are interested in this series, simply use the formula below and insert the suggested words into the blanks for each different book 1 Tally doesn t like or feels out of place being ____.2 Tally gets roped into [...]


  10. I have only commented on on a couple of books I ve read, but this one really bothered me I still liked it enough to not stop reading, hence the three stars By the time I finished all three, I felt I had been lectured to and virtually yelled at about how awful a people we currently are and how horrifying our lifestyle is Even though I am than twice the age of the target audience , I think the target audience is well equipped to understand a nuanced approach to the obvious message I also think t [...]


  11. Alright, let s get this over with Spoilers ahead Soooooooo, we catch up with Tally who we know has been carted away back to New Pretty Town after Special Circumstances raids The Smoke again Tally wakes up and is nowwait for itwait for itA SPECIAL I know I was in utter shock too sarcasmTally is an extra speshul Special with the Special Circumstances agency Try saying that three times fast She has a super dooper new skeleton, super strong muscular muskles, and triangular super speshul teeth Her mi [...]


  12. No, this book wasn t for me at all.I started off flying through it, then it went to plodding along, then it went to snail pace, im surprised i even managed to finish it, i started reading it may 3rd, its now may 30th, took me nearly four weeks which is rare Tally annoyed me 90% of the time, to be honest i don t think i liked a single character in this any, maybe i just got bored of the series i just didn t enjoy this one very much did start to pick up but i still didn t care for the ending and i [...]


  13. And you thought that horrendous bubbly crap was over Ha, just kidding Now we re all icy Whoopee doo daa I was well aware that I was most likely going to be disappointed with this finale because it is a truth universally acknowledged that a trilogy never wraps up well But this ending was just so underwhelming, it puts Specials is on a whole new level.The writing, which I can only describe as crude, hasn t improved at all since the first instalment Who edited this The characters remain unbelievabl [...]


  14. So, Tally was ugly, became bubbly and now she s icy We found her as special this time around, working with the Cutters, a special unit of the SC, with Shay as the leader Okay, the plot wasn t that good I mean, the main idea was to make Zane special, and so he had to prove that he worth being special But for me, and I don t know if it was something that the book tried to pass through as well, it was about Tally finding Tally again And, to be honest, I like David than Zane, but that s just me I [...]


  15. this series of books caught my interest when i read a review by another member who seemed to have tastes similar to my own so i was a little surprised when i realized it was young adult fiction but seeing as i am always looking for what may be the next great dystopian work i decided to give it a go 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 the characters [...]


  16. 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 5Characters Tally has a totally new personality which is always cool reading about , Shay is super crazy once again, David is a bae even though there were AGAIN only few scenes featuring him 4 5 Romance I guess the romance was there Well, it certai [...]


  17. COUNT AS TWO BOOKS Tally has been transformed into a strong, mean person like the specials she saw when she was an ugly and pretty.Everything is perfect, Shay and Tally are friends, the privileges of being a special type of special a cutter , and she can have any crazy surgery she wants.When she helps Special Circumstances bring the Smoke down, her life as a pretty and ugly clash with her current life, making her decide if she should follow orders or fight for the places and people that bring ba [...]


  18. Note I am considering this book the finale of a trilogy, because Extras was an un planned addition.It is finally time for me to deal with Specials, the final book in the trilogy that began with Uglies 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 The Hunger Games Trilo [...]


  19. What a negative book 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 stillThe 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 annoying when she view spoiler on than one occasion, refused the cure to being Special minded in other word [...]


  20. I really liked the first book, and I liked the second book a little although it seemed repetitive , but I was disappointed with this one I have a hard time knowing how to rate it On the one hand, the story is very creative It was fascinating to read from a super human point of view with Tally scaling walls and jumping up trees However, she is no longer someone you can relate to or even like You pity her because all of her choices lead to heartache and disaster for her and everyone around her I [...]


  21. Specials is the conclusion of a trilogy the Uglies series technically extends to a fourth novel, Extras, but the story follows a new girl and not Tally Youngblood, the perspective character of the first three books However, there was no satisfying conclusion to be found in Specials, as it seemed like the same story recycled for the third time.That s not to say there weren t enjoyable parts Westerfeld knows how to write action sequences, and despite my frustration with the story, I could occasion [...]


  22. I ve been in geek denial lately when it comes to my reading habits but I ll go ahead and say itI like YA sci fi Ok Not high fantasy space and other worlds stuff, but near future dystopian sci fi The Adoration of Jenna Fox , Unwind , The Hunger Games l stuff that I ve read lately and enjoyed So naturally I figured it was time to finally read the popular Uglies trilogy A lot of the teen readers in my library are into it, so I gave it a try Ok, so this is totally nerdy, but I d compare my feelings [...]


  23. Personally I think Specials was a great book, the only thing I did not enjoy was the ending The book s ending made me a bit angry, I understand Westerfeld s style, his endings tend to leave you with a few questions which urge you to read , but this book being the last of the trilogy I was very disappointed I m not the type of reader that loves cliffhangers and I would have prefered a much explained ending I hope in his next book Extras he tells a bit about Tally and David s future even though t [...]


  24. MANY SPOILERS This is one of my favorites out of the whole trilogy I found it really hard to make it through without getting teary eyed when Zane died ecspecially since I could almost feel Tally s pain the way Westerfeld wrote about it and since Zane had had the surgery so Tally wouldn t be disgusted with her any I found it interesting when Maddy found a cure for being special but Tally once again fought her way out of it It was a big shocker to me when the person saving Tally from being de spec [...]


  25. 3 livro desta saga Esperava mais, muito mais Achei que era mais do mesmo Inicio parecido com os anteriores, enrola, enrola e o final id nticos aos 2 primeiros Tenho o 4 para ler mas n o fiquei com vontade, quem sabe um dia



  26. Original full review here thebookpixie 2009ReviewScott 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 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 job developing his characters Spec [...]


  27. Series review of the first three books anyway This series wasn t my favorite The books were fun in places and the concept was certainly good and brought up interesting topics and issues, but I really didn t care for the main character, which kind of ruined it for me The ending was also quite unexciting The writing style was very unsubtle and not the best, IMO although it did improve slightly over the course of the three books They might be fun books to just breeze through and enjoy without think [...]


  28. Excellent conclusion to the Uglies trilogy.The biggest reason I liked this book is because in Uglies, we are inside the untampered with mind of Tally, who is a pre 16 year old who has not yet had the operation on her 16th birthday that makes her a Pretty in Pretties, we are inside the mind of Tally again only this time after her operation which has done than change her appearance to make her Pretty.In both these books, you learn that there are basically three types of people in the city Uglies, [...]


  29. DNF at 59%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 was 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 any to make me care enough I also never actially liked Shay from the very beginning of the series, but here she was just insufferable And [...]
