Pretties is the second book in the Uglies series. It is the only non-spoiler thing I want to say so if you have not read this book yet and you do not want to be spoiled for it, please do not read any further.
Tally is a Pretty now and it is pretty obvious (ha-ha). I really liked how we arrived in her life after the operation, as if everything was normal. She is going to parties and she is worrying about what she is going to wear. It is a huge contrast with the ending of book one and I loved what the author did here.
We are following Tally in her new life and we can see that she forgot everything about David and The Smoke. I really hated that part because it made me so sad. Also, I was not a huge fan of her life in Pretty Town, it was actually kind of boring.
The second part of the book (well I think it is actually Part III) was way more interesting. I don't know how it is possible but I had forgotten everything about this village with Pre-rusties kind of men (I read this book almost 10 years ago, but still). It is actually an interesting part of the book where Tally realized that people are conditioned to think a certain way and that it is really difficult to change their minds, BUT it's not because it has always been this way for them that things can't change. I think it is a really interesting lesson for young people reading this book (quite obvious, but this book actually is written for a younger public).
I also forgot a lot of things about the ending. I remember Shay turned into a Special and Tally would eventually be one as well, but I forgot how everything happened. It was great to discover this again!
In general, I really liked this book, but as a part of the series, it is my least favourite for the moment. The part in Pretty Town was too long i my opinion because I think it was boring. The whole thing with the Cutters was quite interesting but I'm not sure it was handled correctly. I mean, I guess it could seem a bit glamorous to young readers and without proper warning...
Two more books to re-read before the release of the next series!!
