Eh I agree she was a bit selfish throughout all the books and a bit of a brat, but it kinda re,inded me of a lot of life in general, but on a more horrific scale.  Trying to be popular, not fitting in unless you are, betraying your friends, but being guilty, etc.  I liked that she was in indesicion the wole series, and it kinda concludesit with her finally being lifted of her guilt and w David

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.

I don't think Tally is shallow, but she is self-centered. Be careful when giving a character a group of traits...

although Scott-la can of course disagree with me,

And I like Shay a lot more than Tally, but I am a lot more like Tally than Shay  :-\

And Tally, she does care about Shay and David and Zane!
She does have issues with both boys at different times, accepting them, that's for sure.
But she cares, she always has. She just isn't always thinking about them. Every time her brain was messed with, so were her priorities. And before her brain was literally messed with, she was a victim of the system (Shay and Zane were blessed with the chance of the people they knew and Shay benefited best, at least at first, because she went to the Smoke while Zane did not). When she breaks away from all systems, she cares about all three of the above very clearly.

tally was a little selfish but i always liked her as a character- when she went to betray the smoke it was only because she wanted to keep a promise that she had made to peris before she even met shay so either way she would have betrayed someone and she eventually decided to stay in the smoke so she didnt actually mean to betray shay like she had planned. A lot of her choices were made for her so she wasnt always in her normal state of mind but i agree with julie-wa that it was clear that she cared about shay zane and david when she rewired herself

I think that the reason most people like Shay better than Tally is because we all want to think that we would be Shay. It rebel the strong one who nnever fell for any of the popular worries of life. While Tally is more like us, she gets peer pressured, she wants to fit in and she is far from prefect.

No, she isn't, they both have their flaws. Shay overeacts and Tally does the opposite:)

That "Best Friends For Never" essay in Mind Rain says pretty much what I feel. I like Shay cuz I feel sorry for her. She's just as brilliant, clever, tricky, and good at hoverboarding as Tally... she could easily star in her own book But she's loyal to Tally, and she doesn't leave.
