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

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. What happened It wasn t the greatest series I d ever read but c mon Did they give him time It was worse the the third movie seuel that shouldn t have had a second Where do I begin with this train wreck There wasn t one storyline that was wrapped up The plot was thrown together so hastily and it left holes and was as deep as an 80 s John Hughes film The ONE character I thought was interesting barely featured and fizzled out pathetically so much potential Also the ending was the WORST I mean it didn t have to be happy dystopia and all I would have settled for a suicide in hopeless despair or a reconditioning to the status uo but no I think it was supposed to leave the reader hopeful but it was just stupid and wrong on all levels and did not make sense to the purpose of the entire series The writing became too contrived and redundant and self defeating and preachy and contradictory and redundant did I say that and amateur and BAD So disappointing

    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 ti
