I read the Uglies series in elementary school cos it was popular back then. My fanatic friend forced me into reading Leviathan, and I liked it so I read the rest of the series.

I was in...seventh? grade in middle school, and it was at the school library. I remember seeing it back in fifth grade in those book ordering catalogs teachers gave out, so I grabbed it and gave it a read. Loved it.

I just got back into it last week. I only made it halfway through the series the first time I read it, and I blitzed through all three last week and yesterday. I love this series.

It's inspired me to add (well, not add, more like modify) some fabs in a project of mine, and to incorporate some walkers into it as well. And I started drawing again.

One must never tolerate evil. For first, evil is tolerated; then embraced, then ailed as being good, then it becomes unlawful to do what is actually good.

Well, I'm an HUGE fan of the Uglies-trilogie, and as my parents found out, that Leviatan is also from Scott Westerfeld, they bestowed it me at my birthday. I though the story was quiete interesting, especially the technologie, and so I read it and the two other books.

My dad first gave the Uglies books, which I enjoyed. So then he showed me the Leviathan books, which were by the same author. I'll admit I wasn't that interested at first, but boredom and a rainy day got the best me, and now here I am.
