Re: Uglies!!!

Well Uglies is the best.  I thought Pretties was till good.  I kinda of began to hate Tally in Specials though.  Extra's was good until he re-introduced Tally, then it kinda just went down hill.  I still like the series but it wan't amazing all the way through.

Re: Uglies!!!

I'll end up reading Uglies before I see the movie. Well the movie isn't out for like, two years?

Re: Uglies!!!

It would be cool if Scott wrote more on anything! Lol.  Or came out with a new series.  THAT would be amazing.  Though I wouldn't have a clue what he would write about.  Lol.

Re: Uglies!!!

They are really awesome! I really hope they make movies out of the series some day. They could have some totally sweet special effects. Anyway, did you read "Bogus to Bubbly" yet? It's like an insider guide to the world of the series withe history, manals for hoverboards, everything! I just started it today and it's really interesting so far. It gives you a lot of good background on the events that led up to that society form.

Re: Uglies!!!

Oh really?  I didn't really know what it was about, though I loved the title.  I just might buy it. 

 

On the movie front, nothing has been released except for the producer and director(the last time I checked)

Re: Uglies!!!

I have no idea what it's about, it's just suppose to be a guide to the world of Uglies. 

 

I can't remember how I heard about Uglies the movie.  I heard vague rumors forever ago, but there was nothing anywhere.  I just know that if you type in Uglies the movie IMBD will pop up and it's there.  It was probably posted on some site, but I don't remember.  Lol.

Re: Uglies!!!

I read all the Uglies books, except for Bogus to Bubbly. My favorite one was Pretties. The first book is hard to get into, but you should definitely keep reading. Extras wasn't as good as the first three, but it resolved some issues from the previous books. I reccomend that too.

I saw an interview with him and he said he's writing a new book. It's a world war II romance or something. You should also try The Midnighters Trilogy and So Yesterday.

Dude!  Sweet.  Ya I've read Midnighters.  I've been wanting to read So Yesterday forever though. I really want to read Evolutions Darling too.  I'm not really a huge fan of adult sci-fi but I'm willing to give Scott's a try.  Lol.
