Well, Mortal Engines has a psudo-omnisentient narration. It jumps around all over the place. We hear from the protagonists, from the enemies, from INANIMATE OBJECTS (sorta)...

That's fair. Well, the original series isn't going anywhere. It was printed like, 8 years ago. You have plenty of time.

I'm going to regret asking, but does Tally do anything really terrible in Specials or Extras? I'm almost done with Pretties and I'm still unsure of my opinion of her.

No. Nothing terrible. She just acts stupid as always.

Then it depends how stupid she is then. I mean, she wasn't bright enough to chew grass when faced by a nerve-frying barrier so she can't be too bright.

I think its because we can compair her to other characters who are more badass.

Do so, its good. Simply put; Compaired to just about anyone, Tally is unlikeable.

I see what you mean. A 700-year-old 12-year-old has more wits about her after being washed between the ears than Tally has at any given moment.

Yes, I am very fond of them.

Okay, I didn't think Tally could get any dumber, but wow, becoming Special hit her hard. Now she's stupid and cocky with a superiority complex. I wanted to throw my book at her so bad.

---

I've decided that Tally is incurable. I hate her so much right now. I don't know why I keep reading.
