3.5 stars on Booklikes. This will round down to three stars on Goodreads. I was on the fence as to whether to read this book/series. I think my reasoning went something like this: "Everyone gets plastic surgery at age 16, to make them 'pretty'? That more implausible than most of the implausibl...

Ich habe einen interessanten Zeitpunkt gewählt, um „Uglies“ von Scott Westerfeld zu lesen. Das Buch ist mittlerweile 14 Jahre alt und Auftakt der gleichnamigen „Uglies“-Tetralogie. Es lag recht lange auf meinem SuB, etwa dreieinhalb Jahre, weil meine Begeisterung für Young Adult – Dystopien seit dem...

I’ve read this series when it first came out in 2005 and I totally loved it. It was the first time I read a dystopian novel and I was immediately hooked.

It took me a while to get into this book. I had just finished The Giver and Uglies felt so superficial I wanted to hit myself of the head with a pan. Nonetheless I'm never one to get completely discouraged and the trilogy fell straight into the type of books I'm into, so I decided to keep reading. ...

I really enjoyed this book. I found myself really liking the characters. It was very different from what I expected. I can't wait to read the next book!
want a real life adventure? come to Australia we have spiders bigger than your hand.
Finished this book the other day. I really like the crazy things Scott is able to come up with - living in his mind would be an incredible journey! I'm dubious that i would survive, but it would be totally worth it. So since the beginning of time (my reading time, which started some... sheesh 6 ye...

My favorite thing about dystopian fiction is their ability to give me a different perspective on our world, culture, and society. Dystopian novels push me to really consider the world that we live in and see a little bit of our reality in the dystopian world, to see the potential for what our world...
