  1. Hi Scott Westerfeld. I am doing a paper on Uglies in a formalistic criticism point of view. Do you know how I should go about approching that?
    Thank You,

  2. Definition: the outward form or structure of a particular work, how words are used in a sentence, and sentence patterns. When looking at Formalistic criticism the easiest way to determine what aspects of the work would be considered Formalistic, is to answer one questions. What did the Author do by arranging words, images, symbols, action, and details of plot?
    Do you know how I could do this for Uglies?

  3. oh yes, Justine refered me to this place to write to you. Thank you for considering my question(s) and trying to help me. You have inspired me so much by your book Uglies and Pretties. They are wonderful peices of art. I can’t wait until Specials comes out.

  4. Well, Pretties is probably the best book for that kind of analysis. Look at the future words and the slang, especially the way “bubbly” changes in meaning throughout the text—from meaning “champagne” to meaning “clever,” “excited,” “evergized,” “turned on,” and finally “free of society’s constraints.”

    That’s where I’d start.

  5. “uglies” and “pretties” are two amazing cant-put-down books that i now reccomend to friends! im not much of a reader type but once i started reading uglies i could not put it down. the next day, i read pretties in one sitting. i am so stoked for “specials” to come out. Im going to book that day off from work (i work at Dairy Queen haha) and just sit and read it. I am so curious to see what happens. I dont think she gets stuck being a special the whole book.. well atleast i hope not. i really hope she drops zane and picks david, because your first love never truely dies. ahh i cant even believe shay dont get me started. and peris.. well i guess you cant fully blame him for not jumping. anyways, just wanted to tell you your an amazing author! and to try find out when “specials” is coming out? please e-mail me at: el_03_3@hotmail.com .. ill be checking daily 🙂

  6. OK thank you. So you don’t think Uglies would be good for that. I’m not sure if I can change my book. Thank you.

  7. Hi Scott,
    I am now doing my paper on Pretties. Do you know what I should start with after the words?
