I'd have to say Uglies, though all books are awesome.  Uglies isn't as action-packed as the others, but I think it's a good starter for the series. 

Though I'd have to say Specials is my second favorite because of the action.

Uglies, but also Specials. I love how, after she changes-ish, her special mind still holds her back (from crying, from expressing emotion, etc.). I also love her connection with David then- it changed, was harder, they'd been through more and I think it was much deeper than it was just after Uglies. And David still wants her, even after all that.

So, I have a question- I'm not sure if I should post it here, but I'm already typing so to hell with it. How much taller is the Special Tally than David? And does she really have pointy- like, triangle- teeth? :o. It just aggravates me most if she's taller than him. I know I'm being anti-feminist or whatnot here, but it seems weird if she's like a foot taller than the guy. (But it's that, plus her muscles and stuff that'd just make her seem like a giant compared to him.) AH! Oh my God I need to shut up. I talk way to much. I'm sorry you had to read my rant.

Makes total sense! And yeah, I know what you mean about Tally being taller than David...It is kinda weird. And yes, I bet she IS taller than him. And yeah, she probably does have really pointy teeth!!!!  :o

Aw. Whatever, my mind is my own. I can imagine whatever.

But in some of my many MANY fanfic daydreams, Tally did something along the lines of have a breakdown and get changed back into an ugly. Whether that's right or what she would do or not, I have no idea. But whatever.

I liked Specials best cuz that was the one where Tally really changed a lot.
And I cried when she cured Dr. Cable.


i was like "YAY" when she cured dr cable, she wouldn't kill her and by curing her, the specials had no "leader"
Yeah, you've got a point... but Dr. Cable is SO icy. I mean, she's evil and whatever, but she knows how to get what she wants. And she's really quite smart. (I can picture her as a Shay-like ugly who met up with Special Circumstances and got brainwashed into thinking that S.C. was saving the world. She's probably got quite an interesting story. I'm sure it wasn't her fault she turned out so evil.) ;D

OH I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i LOVED Zane-la! :'( and ya, that makes sense about Extras! the technology was really cool, but i didnt like that it was about Aya and not Tally, but thats just my opinion.
i did want tally in there more, but there is an uglies trilogy, which follows the adventures of tally, and extras, which is a book on the outside...u can tell because u don't have to read the other books to understand it

I loved all of them, but if I had to choose, I think it would be Uglies. Everyone is normal (or "ugly), and I hate to hear Shay talk all pretty. I really thought that Extras was just not right. The way Tally was so mean, it just wasnt her. I wish she had been cured and made ugly again.

I liked them all, but I think Specials was my favorite, because that's when Tally really made her own decision about who she wanted to be, without any boyfriends interfering.

Ya, but I liked the parts with the interfering boyfriends. It ads a little romance to the books, and I know I am a good sucker for a bit of romance in a good action or fantasy. Sometimes, the romantic parts are my fave parts.
