Review: Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

Here is my review on Pretties by Scott Westerfeld.


Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted.

But beneath all the fun -- the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom -- is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.

Book Info:

  • I give this book a 8.5/10 
  • This book is the second in the Uglies series  
  • Published on November 1, 2005 by Simon Pulse
  • 370 pages 

The Good:
I will start by saying that in some ways I liked this book better than Uglies but in other ways I liked this one better. Scott Westerfelds writing style is amazing; and I don't think he gets enough credit as an author.  I love the way he created the plot and how unpredictable it is. When reading this book I felt like I really got to know the characters. This book is very exciting and action packed and it kept me wanting more. 

The Bad: 
I do not like when books take a long time to get good, and that is the only bad thing I have to say about this book. This was also the only bad thing I had to say about the Uglies, but in the Pretties it takes a little longer.

Overall, this book is just as good as the first one. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.  I would recommend this series to anyone so far. Happy reading!
