Your opinion of Tally Youngblood.
« on: January 11, 2010, 04:49:56 AM »

Tally Youngblood.
Tally is a person with many dimensions to her, plus the constant rewiring of her brain but what do you think of her in general?
and also in extra aya says "what DOES she care about?" and that made me wonder, what?
does she truly care about David? About Zane? Shay?

In all the books, I think she is a very shallow, self-centered character. You may not agree, but throughout the books, she never acts like she cares about anyone but herself. Between Tally and Shay, I like Shay ten times better. I don't think she really cares about Zane or David or Shay because she's so shallow and can't except them the way they are.

she may be exactly what you said but shes also mysterious and unexpecting. she cares about david, zane, and shay but in a different way then you may think. for this reason i like tally.

that's true...very mysterious, unexpecting, and dare i say, devious, but i think that she's just not my favorite character. i think she's just really focused on changing people..but i dont know, you may be right.

Like I said in the favorite character thread, I think her character is realistic. People aren't perfect.

I think she's capable of learning, which is important. And I think she cares about the big picture, not just herself. She realizes stuff like that freedom is dangerous and that nature is beautiful. But her society keeps ingraining certain ideals into her head and rewiring her brain and manipulating her, and she can't really help that. It's not her fault.

I think Tally's character is very realistic... I like her, but I really like Shay better.
Shay seems to care for whatever group she's part of at the moment... (Smokies, Cutters, Crims) Tally seems loyal to the group too... but if you look closely all her actions are about her latest boyfriend. I got really upset with her when she chose Zane over the cutters, only because she kept telling herself that she still was loyal to the cutters too, when she wasn't!
Anyway, just wanted to share my opinion.
