Help! Tally as a cyborg?
« on: April 14, 2010, 01:20:53 AM »

Hey guys! I'm trying to write a paper about how readers identify with Tally after she's turned into a Special. If you have a minute, could you answer some questions for me? Thanks!

How is Tally different after she is turned into a Special?  
What was your response to Tally's transformation into a Special? What did you like/not like and why? Were you upset or happy? Why? Do you think she is a better/worse person or just a different person now?
What did you think of Tally when she showed up at the end of Extras? How had she changed? How had she stayed the same?
Did you identify with Tally in Uglies or Pretties? (Did you understand her point of view? Could you imagine yourself experiencing what she experienced?) Could you identify with her in Extras? Why or why not? What was the difference between the two Tallys?
Do you think Tally is powerful? What makes her powerful? When does she have the most power?
