What do you think about the characters?
« on: December 22, 2010, 11:37:49 AM »

I like to talk about how awsome these books are but my friends won't listen soo... would you guys talk to me?

Tally-Our main character. She brave and all but I mean, she almost betrayed Shay to be pretty.
Shay- A truly brave soul. Futuristic emo?I liked her until i read that part.
Paris- I thought he sounded kind of prissy in Pretties when he doesn't want to go with Tally.
Zane- Ahhh! he sounds like a really cool guy. I think he would make a pretty great bf

post you more later.

I agree with pretty much all that you said, especially about Shay. And David. Is. Amazing. :D

Yeah, I actually liked Tally and Shay, Peris kind of angered me though, but I can kind of see why he backed out, I just wish he had done it earlier and saved everyone the stress.

Tally = brave, true... and terribly selfish. A really bad friend to Shay.
Shay = NOT EMO! She cut herself to be free of the fuzzy-headedness. I'd have done the same. She was just awesome.
Peris - Very likable, but sort of lost my respect when he chickened out. He really did love Tally.
Zane = I agree, a good BF, and also a really good thinker, even with half his brain missing. R.I.P.

And more you left out:

Dr. Cable = the perfect leader. She kept everyone under perfect control until Tally ruined it. Specials are awesome.
David = Really good for Tally, but I found him kinda shallow... in fact., a perfect match for Tally! I just can't get over how he dumped Shay with no forethought. I like Zane better.
Maddy = Has gone mad. But she's still really good at inventing cures.
Fausto = Who could forget him? I found him very memorable.

Tally- Good better closer to the end  Would have made the perfect bad guy
Shay EPIC AWEOSOME AND EPIC PERFECTER AS THE MAIN CHARECTER
Peris- I hated him all the way through
Zane best charrecter Scott-la should make a backstory about him through the uglie years of his
Dr.Cable Horrible leader because she went too over the top with power but had the right idea
David- Liked him at the begining than he then turned way to shallow
Maddy Went mad wen az died Perfect bad guy
Az -Lovible but scott had too kill him
Fausto-I thought he didnt stand out
Astrix - loved him thought he could have came out more
Ho Hee hee love the funny name
Tachs -Loved him

How can you call David shallow? I find him perfect :P I know he ditched Shay, but hey, they're teenagers. That's what happens; couples don't stay together. And even three years after the mind-rain, he obviously still hasn't gotten back together with Tally. He respects her and how she would be guilty because of Zane. Team David!

I don't think Shay was emo exactly, because emo people cut themselves to release all the pain and bad from their bodies. Shay did it because she was just trying to stay clear-headed that only way she knew how.

I completely forgot who Astrix is. o.o

I love how cutting the books isn't like cutting in real life. They didn't do it for emotional release as much as it was some sort of zen thing to reach a different state of mind... Like drugs. D:
