    Tally Youngblood is quickly approaching her 16th birthday and the mandatory pretty-making surgery that accompanies it. But Tally isn't sure if she wants to be a placidly happy Pretty. When a top secret organization threatens her with remaining Ugly forever, she reluctantly spies on the rebels who have refused the surgery. They think it changes more than just looks and are working on a cure. But they need someone to become Pretty to test it out.

    Cather says: "Unexpectedly enjoyable"

    Would you listen to Uglies again? Why?

    Its a pretty good story...it throws you in and assumes you kinda know what is going on...I wish they would have explained a little more.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Shay is soooo nasally its almost unbearable


    Any additional comments?

    I'm into book two now...and am beginning to wonder if I'll even listen to book 3 ;P

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    Story

    It was a very interesting book. Painted a very vivid picture of the past. So much pain and drama! I would have given it a 5 star but I like happy endings... There is an implied one.. But I wanted to hear it from Lavinias mouth!

  • Edge of Eternity: The Century Trilogy, Book 3

    Story

    Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution - and rock and roll.

    I enjoyed it... Especially the history of the 60-80's ... Way more swearing and sex than necessary.I don't think it's needed at all but overall a great conclusion to the series.
