Can I just be the first to say, it's really refreshing to go back to the Uglies universe again:p

So can we just take the time to appreciate the sheer destructive power of the pulse knife. Like wow. I want one.

No, scratch that. I need one.

Okay but can we talk about the fact that these books really arenít afraid to have a body count. That really surprised me but Iím digging the darker take

I mean people died in the original trilogy too. Not nearly as many but I think actually more named characters?

I think it makes sense considering our new main character has been trained from childhood to be a weapon, whereas Tally and Aya were just your average teenagers at the start of their stories. Plus it really goes to kinda show a more negative side of how a lack of the Pretty Operation has changed things. But yeah I also second in enjoying the story becoming a little darker than before

You know I've been thinking about this, and I just came to a horrifying realization: in the vast Uglies universe someone, somewhere at some time got a surge to make themselves look like Shrek

I thought in the uglies Universe to most things from our time were forgotten, why would someone want Shrek mods?

I doubt that people from the Uglies universe would remember Shrek but Iím assuming the movies or books are preserved somewhere, even just in the library of one city, post-mind rain the idea of beauty being on the inside and an ugly ogre being a cultural icon(?) would be very radical in an appealing way, so I can see Shrek surges/mods becoming a trend and even a statement

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk

I mean there were people in Extras who made themselves look like anime characters if I remember correctly
I stand by my theory I don't care what anyone says lol


Anyway, anybody have any predictions for the next book?
