Uglies Review

Uglies (Uglies, #1)
**1 Stars**

MY OVERVIEW: I honestly almost put the book down after I finished reading the first page. I just couldn’t do it. I tried to finish the book, but ending up giving up around page 200. 

PROS: There really weren’t any pros for me. All of the characters were whiney and annoying. I didn’t see why Shay wanted to leave the society – no it wasn’t morally right, but morals aside it was a working society. 

CONS: I don’t agree with the whole if you are normal you are Ugly, and you have to have tons of surgery to live successfully in society so you look Pretty. But that aside, everyone gets the surgery – there is no rich/poor to worry about. 

MY FINAL THOUGHTS: I don’t plan on trying to pick this book back up in the future. It is written poorly and I don’t agree with the concept. 


  1. Interesting view you have here. It's been the rage on the bookshelfs ever since the first one came out, so I think I might try it anyway.
    How was it written poorly?

  2. The characters had no depth. The building of the society was good to a point, but felt like it fell a little short of where it should have been. The writing just seemed... off. Like the author needed someone to come in and help polish it up a bit. (Please keep in mind that this is just my opinion and I know people who have enjoyed it.)
