    Review Specials Specials [Pdf/E–book] Scott Westerfeld ´ 2 Download 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 didOther things that marred my enjoyment of this storyI hated the cutting aspect Several t

    Specials [Pdf/E–book] 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 oneSpecials is no exception Although the novel starts off slow it uickly builds up speed carrying you along Tally's final journey She's now a Cutter a Special Circumstances pet p

    Characters Ð PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Scott Westerfeld Scott Westerfeld ´ 2 Download Specials [Pdf/E–book] 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 gossi

Review Specials

Characters Ð PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Scott Westerfeld Specials Characters ½ 2 Special Circumstances The words have sent chills down Tally's spine since her days as a repellent rebellious ugly Back then Specials were a sinister rumor frighteningly beautiful dangerously strong breathtakingly fast Ordinary pretties might live their whole lives without meeting a Special But Tally's never. This disappointed me so much I really loved Uglies and there was a lot to admire about Pretties 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 growth was really interesting However by the time we get to book three and Tally s brain has been reset AGAIN it s becoming frustrating and it doesn t help that in this final book Westerfeld doesn t take the time to explore what s really going on with her Add to that Shay s many reversals I kept expecting it to be revealed that she s totally PSYCHOTIC but apparently not Zane s uick dismissal and the almost complete absence of David after he was also barely in the last book and you can t help being disappointed with the conclusion to these characters stories because they barely seem like the characters you started out with and that Westerfeld made you care about Also the dissolution of Dr Cable s system seemed waaaaay too easy so I didn t find this satisfying on a plot level either Sigh Well I guess I ll just have to remind myself that 1 I really liked the first book and 2 the next two were nowhere near as bad as say the Matrix seuels

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 BravoOk 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 afterthought is where you could have rectified yourself but instead you came up with a whole new story like a lame sure to fail spinoff show with special guest appearances from the former cast who are contractually obliged to lend their star power to improve ratings Also I don t want this to be a repeat of Breaking Dawn or Mockingjay where as another reviewer pointed out you can t unread them but are left forever tainted And those were series I actually liked Anyway I m not reading Extras So why didn t I like yours Well it s pretty simple really your characters were shallow Not just morally shallow which was kind of the point though none of them ever got over that particular symptom but they were just flat Wait I take that backShay is an exception but I still didn t like her Also you left out half of the story Too many things happened between books or offstage so to speak Major stuff too like why she liked no LOVED Zane so much when there really wasnt very strong evidence They were a couple after their first date and aside from the experience they went through together there just isn t a lot of substance there It seemed like a superficial relationship befitting their superficial looks I expected that it would be awkward with David and take awhile to get them to reconnect but I just couldn t figure out why she held the torch for Zane for so long WAS it because he was pretty that was hinted at but you never told us definitively Was it pity That s even worse Why did David still like her after everything There wasn t much to go on there either Back in Uglies it was a lot easier to see why they were together but after that it felt forced And you know for all your talk about gender euality your male characters were pretty wimpy David was doing good at first but then with little about him in the next books he was weakened because he wasnt part of the action He had been the rebel leader and then became a nobody Same with Zane former rebel still has a dangerous vibe but the emo thing was kind of pathetic After that he was just a constant liability What amazinglyun masculine men er boys you ve concocted here Even the villain is a woman Considering its the females who do all the damage maybe thats the real gender message hereAgreeing with Amy about all the cutting thrill seeking etc as inappropriate for a teen audience but I think it would have been acceptable if you just explained it better Endorphins and all that But very irresponsiblethat you didn tAnd the alcohol and anorexia and constant surgeries were maybe even worse No one had any respect for the human body before or after being pretty Even David who should ve been so repulsed that he had the same kind of reaction she had to his ugliness So disgusted with all of them that he wouldn t want anything to do with them any He should have said a lot about the beauty of humanity the fragility and the strength that is naturally programmed into us YOU should have said it Maybe you were trying to in some satiric way but it just ended up being demoralizing not actually inspiring Maybe you were just trying to tackle too much at once someone else suggested that 4 is another idea you wanted to develop and that may have been why the rest sucked so bad for me I thought the pretty surgery as a cure to the breakdown of civilization was really far fetched and became even so because it became such a catch all Rusties were too reliant on oil Rusties destroyed nature Rusties made war over nothing Rusties destroyed themselves with their own technological genius all because of looks The line of reasoning is very thin but you had some good points The problem was you lumped them all together instead of exploring a few at a time The surgery revolution and the euality and the superhumans is a great idea BY ITSELF The ruins of civilization the oil dependence the super weed another good idea BY ITSELF And the lesions and the anthropological guinea pigs wow could be super but by itself These concepts are what intrigued me in the beginning when the characters didn t but instead of finding out how this society got from one point to another how some people survived and prospered and others became savages or how the cities were so absolutely isolated and disconnectedbut still largely the same it was all brushed over and vague Such a tremendous disappointmentAm I just too ugly and emotional Is this written at a bubbly pretty reading level and I m just over thinking it Or am I simply not icy enough and i m missing the messageProbably I m just expecting too much from YA books It s not like we re meant to do a criticalanalysis of Brave New World here but that might actually be easierUpdate 52015 I finally discovered a series that makes up for everything the Uglies series lacks It s Pure by Julianna Baggott I feel immense dystopian satisfaction and fulfillment now that I ve read it

Characters Ð PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Scott Westerfeld Specials Characters ½ 2 Emembers something Still it's easy to tune that out until Tally's offered a chance to stamp out the rebels of the New Smoke permanently It all comes down to one last choice listen to that tiny faint heartbeat or carry out the mission she's programmed to complete Either way Tally's world will never be the sa. This review contains spoilers for Uglies and PrettiesI had a similar experience reading Specials as I did reading Pretties I enjoyed it a lot but it didn t uite reach the level of perfection that Uglies delivered There were some flawsI ll get my main complaint out of the way because this is what lingered in the back of my mind the entire time I was reading Scott Westerfeld s liberal use of future slang did not work in this book In Pretties it made sense the Tally narrating that book was a gorgeous brainwashed sixteen year old surrounded by other gorgeous brainwashed teens Westerfeld s silly future slang fit both the tone and the plot of the story But in Specials Tally is an elite counterrevolutionary killing machine and it would have fit the tone and the plot of this story much better if Westerfeld had kept the slang to a minimumAs for the ending it was better than most Young adult series tend to wrap things up in a neat little bow which I don t think works in the dystopian genre At least the ending of Specials left me with some ambiguity as to what the future of Tally s world would hold That s part of the reason I didn t like and won t be rereading Extras which takes place in the future Tally helped create and therefore removed all ambiguityEven better than Westerfeld s conclusion to the plot of the Uglies series was his conclusion to Tally s character development which could not have been satisfying This whole series is a masterclass in character development Tally is constantly conflicted caught between living the life that s expected of her and committing to a new possibly better but ultimately uncertain way of life She grapples with finding a balance between taking responsibility for her actions and wallowing in guilt over things she can t change She changes dramatically over the course of the series but her core essence her insecurities and struggles and strengths remains the same Her growth is exciting and inspiring to witnessTally s turbulent relationship with Shay is on full display in this book and I am living for it The roller coaster ride of betrayal and forgiveness they took me on friends to enemies to friends to enemies to friends to enemies to friends was like the new and improved version of those annoying on again off again relationships you see in sitcoms Their dynamic is something I could write an entire essay about Shay leads Tally follows at first before swerving off the road to forge her own path Shay wants than anything to stay friends with Tally but only if Tally plays by her rules Tally leaves a trail of unintentional destruction in her wake that affects those closest to her including ShayAnd as I ve already mentioned in my reviews of Uglies and Pretties Westerfeld has an uncanny ability to keep me turning pages That s even impressive considering I m rereading this series I already know what happens yet somehow there s still this feeling of suspense I would pick up Specials to read it then suddenly in what felt like the blink of an eye I d be 50 or 100 pages in and couldn t put it down I think that s what counted the most toward my positive ratings of these books There s nothing uite like fully immersing yourself in a good read
