I think I'd get changed into a pretty. like debussygirl said, its just how they are. Grow up, get pretty, have fun. I don't think I'd be the one to figure out that something was wrong and that I wouldn't want to be pretty.

Now, if I knew about everything, that would be different. I'd want to stay the same if I knew something bad was going to happen.

I think I'd want to become pretty, because you're right, its seems like a neccesity to them.

I just want all the surge stuff like the eye diamons and stuff.
I wasn't sad when Zane died! I just . . . couldnt like him.

Another question, but answer the other one if you want

If like in Extras you could get all those new surges, what would you have?

I'd love that chameleon skin. :D

Eh, I'd get it. The temptaion of no more zits would be too much to resist... being Pretty would be fun, but I don't think my brain would like the lesions very much at all.
But actually, I'd still rather be a Special.There's an allure to being a Special that I truely love. Just the power, and the sense of superiority, like I said in one of my first posts. It'd be something I'm good at, looking and being scary, and knowing it. So, if offered that choice, I'd take it in a heartbeat.

I'd end up as a tech-head, with mega-cool eyescreens and kinda emo styles, like the straight black hair I wish I had. And I'd re-invent Warcraft!

My sister and her husband are driving down for Christmas and my sister asked for a recommendation for a book to listen to when they drive down and I gave her Uglies. Do you think a guy (my brother-in-law) could like it? I was thinking he would because there's not too much romance in it, and there's cool future gadgets, but I don't know. I don't know any guys who've read Uglies so I couldn't say.

I don't either because I think it's the cover that throws them off. I nearly didn't read it because I thought it would be some crap like Gossip Girl or Notorious Girl.. you know, those kinds of books, which I seriously hate. So I think a guy could enjoy it. However, it is more of a young adult book and I don't know how much they would enjoy it. You could try The Host... I loved the book. My dad loved the book.

Slaughterhouse 5 is a good one. Anything by Stephen King XD Fahrenheit 451 was awesome. I heard The Secret Life of Bees was incredible. Haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Now, I haven't read the book but I'm in love with the movie. So, you could try The Children of Men. It was so incredible. Truly. The book is by P.D. James. They could get an audio tape of Edgar Allan Poe's works. Made of win. To Kill a Mockingbird was great. Erm, Neverwhere seems really good. Also, I know it's a young adult book, but I really enjoyed A Great and Terrible Beauty. Oh, and City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy).

I told them it was a young adult book, so we'll see.

I totally would get it too!! It would be so cool.

Honestly, if I lived in the Uglies times, I would gladly get the Pretties surgery. I wouldn't be perceptive enough to figure out what was happening that was so off. So Pretty surgery for me!!

Man this thread really makes me feel bad for not moving on after Uglies.
I should probably pick up pretties huh?
and if i lived in There time, I don't think i would realize what the surgery does either. haha i'm not the observant.

I loved the Uglies series! My friend and I started using bubbly speech for a while for the heck of it and we kept getting rather odd looks. :lol:

And has anyone read the Midnighters series by Scott Westerfeld? I liked them a lot!
