980 thought on “Pretties”

  1. Here s what I wrote on my book club blog about Pretties, and the whole series Westerfeld knows that he s writing to teens, so he s trying to address a LOT of issues that teens face One is, obviously, being superficial Remember reading the teen magazines, hearing all of the celebrity gossip not to mention your own school gossip , trying to dress well and be cool Maybe you were better than I was and didn t get pulled into that, but most teens are And often the pull doesn t go away once you turn 20 [...]


  2. I m pretty disappointed with this book The last one was pretty good but this one not so great They kept using this stupid pretty language that annoyed me to no end If i hear that anything is Bogus, bubbly, pretty making, fashion missing ect EVER again, i might have to strangle that person.Besides the annoying slang, the main character is now a complete twit She is a Pretty sure, but she made some really stupid decisions The worst was at the end She picked the WRONG guy and that s all i m going t [...]


  3. What I found most interesting about Pretties was its thematic use of various forms of bodily mutilation eating disorders In a perfect society, where everyone is brain damaged into peace and transformed into absolutely perfectly beautiful creatures, how do you rebel By starving yourself, cutting yourself in a lesser sense, by covering your body in tattoos Tattoos as mutilation is a controversial thought, and I m not sure I know where I stand with it I mean, are some tattoos okay, but a body full [...]



  4. Just like Uglies, Pretties is an entertaining read Tally s adventures continue as she becomes pretty and fights to regain her awareness We meet some new characters, including Tally s new love interest The story moves fast and gets intense in the third part of the book Like many mentioned before, the pretty talk gets annoying There is only so many times you can take the word bubbly repeated But I guess the author was trying to create a pretty language indicative of the slow pretty thinking This [...]


  5. Pretties is the sequel to Uglies, the second in a trilogy which I had started back two months previous I opened the book with some hesitancy, despite the fact that I d enjoyed the first book and had been anxious to start the second, since the details of the first book were kind of fuzzy would I remember enough to piece together a coherent story Turns out I needn t have worried Pretties picks up where Uglies left off, yes but the main character s memory has been tampered with and she can t quite [...]


  6. Apparently being pretty also means you use the words bubbly and bogus Seriously Have we suddenly been transported back to the 1990s I have to admit, every time Tally or Zane or Shay or anyone used the words bubbly and bogus, I rolled my eyes Which means I was rolling my eyes for ninety percent of this book.I was pretty disappointed with Pretties there isn t much plot difference between it and Uglies In Uglies, Tally want to be pretty, and in Pretties, Tally wants to be a Crim Tally fights with S [...]


  7. My first completed novel for the BookTubeAThon My thoughts on this book are simple I enjoyed it, but I don t think it comes close to matching how great Uglies was The plot in the last around 100 pages was exciting, but the first 2 3rds of this book dragged and felt all together unnecessary The novel felt repetitive and redundant at several points I feel like it s suffering from middle book syndromeI did enjoy it, like I said, but it just didn t capture me like the first one I will definitely be [...]


  8. i feel like im always hopeless at rating books, like im lying in bed after reading this book and I m just not sure how to rate it, 3 stars 4 starst your act together and give us our half option, it will make things a thousand times easier for me i did struggle with this book a little compared to uglies, it wasn t as fast paced as the first one but i figured that was because tally didn t really do much travelling what with it mostly being set in new pretty town.tally did annoy me a bit in this, s [...]


  9. EDITED Updated star status at the end Is this book really as bad I as I think it is I need friends to read this, to reassure me that it really is awful and it s not just that I m sick which I am I mean, with bronchitis So do it Read this And tell me it is bad Ew, this is awful taste it Anyway, i d say 2 stars just because i feel guilty giving only 1 star and I did finish it So, 1.5 stars Because you know something is wrong when It Was Okay sounds way too generousWhere to start Could there be a [...]


  10. If I hear word bubbly one time,I ll kill someone.This was boring as hell.The story is boring,actions of the characters are utterly boring and stupid,the ending is stupid as hellI m really disappointed.And there s suddenly a love triangle really Scott,REALLY The only person I liked in this book was thankfully Tally.That s the only reason I m giving this book 2 stars.She s really great.Everyone elset so much.Shay is a freaking idiot and so is Peris.Zane seems like a decent guy,but I didn t really [...]


  11. Westerfield has a way of making me want to finish his books in one sitting, but I m never sure whether that has with his ability to build suspense or my ongoing desire to have it over with Pretties, while not a book without merit if I were being fair, I would probably give it 3 stars, story wise irked me a great deal than Uglies which I obviously liked well enough to read its sequel because of what I consider some poor authorial decisions For a dystopia intending to critique the image obsesse [...]


  12. Sing to the tune of Blank Space Reading this book felt like torture Don t say I didn t say I didn t warn ya Angst The angst is everywhere I tried with this book, I really did but the plot just got even muddled after the Uglies I could not stop myself from rolling my eyes and suppressing the urge to fling this book across the room every 5 minutes Let s take a moment to look at this synopsis Tally Youngblood is popular and Prettyville boyfriend Zane leads the Crims gang But Croy from her past smu [...]


  13. Pretties suffers from middle of a trilogy itis It has to move the story forward, setting up things to come in the final installment, but it can t necessarily push things too far ahead for fear of losing audiences in the next installment Pretties picks up a few months after Uglies ended with Tally having undergone surgery and become pretty We re treated to glimpses of her hedonistic lifestyle now, but a lot of the first third of this story had me wondering when the real plot would kick in In the [...]


  14. Basically If you ve read Pretties then you know what I m on about And I will die happy if I never hear that word ever again.I think I ve discovered a novel that defies the stereotype sequel syndrome I enjoyed this than Uglies the characters actually had a bit of depth, the plot picked up tremendously and the action was nothing short of thrilling But love triangle Oh My God Please No.One thing I found really interesting was the way that the Pretties talked Their vocabulary was introduced in such [...]


  15. If you take the first book and add some slight differences, annoying slang, a unlikeable Tally, a complete assassination of Shay s character, and a forced love triangle, you basically have this book.The plot of Pretties really is very similar to the plot of Uglies Tally starts out living in the city, not questioning anything about her life until a new friend shows her there is to it She ends up escaping the city and living in the wilderness for a while and then meets up with the rebellion view [...]


  16. Spoilers ahead In Pretties, we once again catch up with our heroine extraordinaire, Tally Tally has now had the pretty making surgery and is drop dead gorgeous But being pretty isn t enough for Tally She wants to be in a special pretty group called the Crims She and Shay are back in BFF land and all is well with the world.Tally also meets Zane and insta love is formed I guess it was insta love but, again, I didn t see any chemistry at all All thoughts of David are out the window now that Tally h [...]


  17. Scott Westerfield has a tallent that I enjoy as equally as it annoys me he can change my mind like a remote control At the end of the first book in this series, Uglies, I thought that it was the end of the world and that the next book couldn t possibly go the way I wanted it to go But as I read Pretties, I found that what I had so stubbornly wanted while reading the first book dissolved and I suddenly wanted something else At the end of this book the feeling of Oh no It s the end of the world wa [...]


  18. 5 Words Beauty, freedom, pressure, popularity, friendship.One day it was sunny outside, and a girl wanted to read a book She was already currently reading SEVEN BOOKS but, decided that as great as they were she didn t want them She wanted some nostalgia for a better worse time when she was in high school And this was one of those books she had read all those years ago and it was still on her shelf She remembered that it was pretty awesome In fact, it was so awesome that despite reading it ten ye [...]


  19. I liked this book better than the first Maybe it s because I m open to sci fi or maybe it s because it was just better shrug Either way I liked it better And I m not a big sci fi reader but I think the world Westerfeld creates is unique and things are explained well without it feeling like an overload of information I didn t much like how the rusties being us are considered stupid but then again in the 1900s people took tape worm pills to lose weight, we know better now.Anyways, getting to the [...]


  20. Congratulations Mr Westerfeld, you managed to impress me, amaze me, and convince me to read the third book When I finished Uglies the first book in the series , I was really impressed and looking forward to reading Pretties 20% into the book, I was starting to feel depressed What I had hoped for wasn t happening There was no strong female protagonist, there was nothing new Well, nothing new except for a new relationship with another boy Aaaargh I was worried that I was going to end up with anoth [...]


  21. I am beyond dissapointed with this sequel Uglies was intriguing, making it s society around our world s obsession with apperance This book was just 350 pages of dull action I didn t even read most of the book I just skimmed it so I could move onto Specials.Where did the strong Tally that had developed so well go She turned into a brainless idiot, never to be seen for the majority of the book And, worst of all, she s attached to her new boyfriend like glue.Yes, her new boyfriendUS, Westerfield in [...]


  22. Love, Love, Love I totally love it And here are some of my coments You learn about the Rusties in this one It was kind of creepy They refer to us as stupid.Maybe we are I mean look at what we are doing to the planet that we live on We are killing the planet And you know what they say, that there is going to be and of us in the future And she said that the oil thing, killing most of the Rusties , saved the planet Well, I don t like the killing most of the popuation part, but if you don t find [...]


  23. I was going to give this 3 and a half stars because I found it to be a bit dull but when I actually think back at what happened in the book it wasn t that dull, it was just me not being connected to the storyI don t connect that well with Tally, I had hopes she d grow up a bit in this but she still stayed the same, this made me a bit annoyed as most the book was just tally.The storyline was great but all the fun exciting stuff really happens towards the end, I hated new pretty town and not havi [...]


  24. Don t judge me, but the first time I have read Uglies, David was a character I didn t like at all, but I ended up having my mind completely changed about him I honestly wanted of him and Tally and I expected them to at least share a kiss for the sake of my little fangirl soul.On the other hand, Zane was someone I didn t enjoy reading about as much as I thought I would, and his and Tally s relationship was really boring for me in some parts.Even though it was a good and fast read I or less love [...]


  25. I am a 40 something mom falling for YA fiction all over again Pretties is not as fast paced as Uglies, but this second installment in the series made me emotionally involved overall, and made me care for Tally and the other characters by the end of the book Be patient with the slower parts it will build soon and surpass your expectations Scott Westerfeld is brilliant at creating this superficial world and characters, who have created their own future language The ending has the perfect cliffha [...]


  26. For me the Uglies series are the most under hyped books I have ever read This is one of my all time favorite series right up there with Harry Potter, Throne of Glass and the Hunger Games I first read the series in high school and on this re read I feel it really stands the test of time


  27. A trilogy or a book series where the sequels turn out better than the first installment is a rather rare treat for readers almost always, the first book is the best After reading the second book of the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, I believe that this trilogy plus one is going to be classified in that category Pretties picks up where Uglies left off Tally Youngblood has finally become a new Pretty and has joined her other friends in the city to live a not so bubbly life The most important t [...]


  28. Stand 2010Band eins war ja schon genial, aber Band zwei fand ich sogar noch ein wenig besser Besonders das Ende des Buches haut einen geradezu um Ich kann es gar nicht erwarten endlich Band drei in die Finger zu bekommen.Wenn man mit dem Buch beginnt ist man erst einmal geschockt Es ist schrecklich zu sehen, dass Tally wirklich durch und durch eine Pretty geworden ist Dass die Operation tats chlich etwas bewirkt, sie geradezu hirnlos macht Allerdings unterscheidet sich Tally doch noch von andere [...]


  29. O 2 livro desta saga causou me alguns sentimentos contradit rios Gostei de saber a continua o da hist ria da Tally mas algumas coisas n o me agradaram muito, tal como o uso e abuso do termo borbulhante A parte em que aparecem personagens novas em cen rios diferentes deu alguma emo o hist ria e o final n o foi de todo o que esperava, como tal vou j avan ar para o 3 livro, para n o perder o fio meada
