This is one of my all-time favorite books. I've worn out two paperback copies over the years. Now that I'm a mom with young kids, it's hard to find time to sit and read, so when I found Uglies on audible, I was ecstatic. Emily Tremaine is decidedly less so. Not only was the reading emotionless and flat, her odd placement of inflections was maddeningly off on several occasions, distorting the meaning of the dialogue. Scott Westerfeld is an amazing author. Uglies and its sequels deserve the high praise and popularity of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and other critically acclaimed YA series.
Would I buy this book again? I probably will one of these days. In print. On audio? Only if someone else is reading it to me.

I feel like the female characters were constantly focused on men or their own looks. The author made Tally's friend look so 1 dimensional. Perhaps there is a purpose in that which I will find out when I happily read Pretties. The book leaves off with a major cliff hanger as though you are forced to keep reading. I don't mind but I do find that to be a cheap tactic.

really well written fantastic story from strat to finish can't wait for the next book
Great narrative, and story. It kept me absorbed all the way through, and can't wait to listen to the next book.
I loved this book when I read it in Year 10 for school and I love it still listening to it on my drive to and from school where I teach Year 10 English... Maybe I'll find a way to slot this into our reading schedule!
