Specials by Scott Westerfeld May 15, 2008

Filed under: Book Reviews,Books,Fiction,Juvenile,sci-fi — Julie @ 6:17 pm

Specials by Scott Westerfeld fits into the Juvenile Science Fiction genre. It was first published in 2006 and is recommended for people age 14 and up.

Summary and Review: Superhuman speed, eyesight and hearing sounds good to me but for Tally, as usual, being not only perfect but a special special just isn’t enough. Specials is the third installment in the Uglies series and begins with Tally, Shay, and their gang (Specials known as the cutters) crashing a party to get more information about the New Smoke. Tally enjoys her new job as a protector of the city more than she expected. The Smokey they were trying to get to made an exciting escape that was full of twists and turns that made for a thrilling and page-turning beginning and the excitement didn’t stop there. Zane, Tally’s boyfriend from Pretties, returns to New Pretty Town after his surgery. Tally and Shay agree to help Zane escape and find the New Smoke, each is unaware of the secret plans of the other two along the way and they all get more than they bargained for. While at times I still tripped over the word choice I am more comfortable with it this go around and find it mildly interesting. Westerfeld continues to capture my attention with his exciting and oddly realistic world from a fantastic future.

    I totally agree! I read the first books (uglies), the second book (prettys), the third book (specials), and now im on the fourth book (extras). ill say that Specials was my favortie book of all of them. u have to read it to believe it! But first you really have to read the first two to under stand specials. ill warn you though, once to read uglies, you will never put down the book nor you will not stop reading and you also want to read pretteys and then specials. thats how powerful it is. I havent read any of the other books by scott westerfeld but i want to. Scott Westerfeld: you make your books sooo additing! i never want to put them down! ur a GREAT writing.

    PS: please read specials when u have a chance, you’ll love it! ❤
