The first installment of Scott Westerfeld's New York Times bestselling series—a global phenomenon that started the dystopian trend.

The Uglies series has more than 3 million books in print, has been translated into twenty-seven languages, and spent more than fifty weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Now all four books feature fresh new covers and will reach an even wider audience.

Tally’s adventures begin in Uglies, where she learns the truth about what life as a Pretty really means. She rebels against the surgery that will make her a Pretty, but ultimately succumbs. In Pretties, Tally has forgotten all about her Ugly life, and when she’s reminded, she has a hard time listening. And what little’s left of the old Tally is further compromised in Specials, because Tally has been transformed into a fierce fighting machine. But when she’s offered a chance to forever improve civilization, will she be able to overcome her brainwashing? The answer is evident years later in Extras, after the Pretty regime has ended. Boundless human creativity, new technologies, and old dangers have been unleashed upon the world. But fame and popularity can be just as dangerous as extreme beauty….

Listener Opinions

    " Good concept, could have been written better. Light entertainment, likely to appeal to females more than males "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimeé Morales | 2/6/2014

    " I really don't know what to think of the book. It was good, well written and an excellent plot. But I dunno. While reading I remember the Matched books, they look alike. The society is divided, they have a before and after, and mostly the revolution -which will come, i know-. I'm feeling like reading the whole serie, so here I go. :) "

    " Ughh what can i say? this book is pure genius!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yaniel | 1/27/2014

    " It's really entertaining and the end is a huge cliffhanger "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie Livingstone | 1/26/2014

    " Predictable, not very exciting, cheesy dialogue, flat characters "

    " I really enjoyed this book and I have to admit that I was really surprised. I fell in love with the story and liked discovering this whole new and modern high-tech universe created by Scott Westerfeld. A city where uglies live separated from pretties, people who got an operation to become a pretty. We follow the story of Tally Youngblood, a fifteen year old ugly who is about to become a pretty and live in New Pretty Town, where her only job will be to have fun. Everything changes when she meets Shay, an ugly like her that sees their world in a whole new different way... This book made me think and reflect on our society and on how we often judge people based on their appearance. I propose Uglies to anyone who wants to read a good dystopian novel and that is ready to be amazed. :) A great start for this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/19/2014

    " I really liked this series. I thought the post-apocalyptic world was pretty interesting with all the cool technology and the story kept me interested. I thought the words they used were fun as well (e.g. "dizzy-making"). It's been a few years since I read them, so I don't have a lot more to say. Maybe I'll read them again and rewrite my review. "

    " A friend told me about this series, saying how good these books are. This one was pretty good. The premise was interesting. Writing was fast paced and really good. Near the end was interesting. "

    " It could be better written, but I love the premise behind this book. Keeping this short and sweet. "

    " So so loved this book was hooked straight away. Passing it on to my two teenagers to read. Could see the story in my mind unfolding "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ouii Ungboriboonpisal | 10/4/2013

    " Its story is not that fascinating. It flows monotonously with occasional twists. Anyway, i will continue reading the 2nd one and see how it's going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camila França | 9/27/2013

    " I was't expecting much of this book, but it really suprised me! The text is fluid, fast and the story is interesting and different. Now I am reading the second book of this serie and I can say now i am a fan of Scott Westerfeld books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendall Hampton | 3/9/2013

    " Lily, not as bad as I thought it was in the middle. Yes, it's slow at times, but I did enjoy the overall plot, despite my aversions to sci-fi. I am adding the other two books in the trilogy to my "To-read" list. I'm really glad I stuck with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jellybean6401 | 12/6/2012

    " A very good book with a very great idea and plot. This book is by far my favorite of the series because the rest kind of drags on. Too bad, the author could have done so much better with the other stories though :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryn | 11/22/2011

    " This book was good, but not enough for me to not want to finish the series to get it over with. The book was intriguing but I lacked the desire to keep going with it, though I did finish it in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hope | 1/24/2011
