Mistakes in Bogus to Bubbly!!
« on: November 11, 2011, 02:03:59 AM »

hey ppl
just wondering if anyone else noticed the mistakes in Scott's Insider's Guide to the World of Uglies?
mistake 1.
on pg 44 scott says that when zane was brought to the specials he was told to rat on the crims or stay ugly forever
is isnt true
thats what they told TALLY
they told zane they would make him special
mistake 2
on pg 66 it says that middle pretties that became non bubbleheaded were given an operation
again, NOT TRUE
maddy and az said they dont remember turning ugly-brained
it must have been something in their food or coffe or idk something


anyone else notice these mistakes?

I don't think the one with Zane was a mistake. The same thing happened to Zane.

And middle pretties, if their job requires quick thinking and sharpness, they were given an operation to de-bubblehead them, most of the way anyway.


I think.

They have different types of middle pretties for different types of jobs. So people must have their jobs decided for them before the operation. So they probably de-bubble head them during the middle pretty operation.

I know a flaw in the story itself; In Uglies, when Tally is jumping off of the party spire in garbo, it says that she is taller than pretty standard, meaning that she is taller than what would be considered pretty height. But in pretties, when she is hoverboarding with David through the ruins, she says that the operation made her taller. However, when she is jumping off of Valentino in the beginning, the jacket  bounces her normally, like any other pretty (they're all probably within 3 inches of each other's height). Explanations?

in PRETTIES, Tally and Zane eat bacon (which is pig).
HOWEVER,
in EXTRAS, Ren states that pigs are extinct.
