In a world that is rapidly descending into chaos, Frey and Rafi are twin sisters, but few people know of Frey's existence, because she has been raised to be her sister's body double and lethal bodyguard, while Rafi has been raised to further the family's political power--but when their father sends Frey in her sister's place as collateral in a tricky deal, Col, the son of a rival leader, gets close enough to begin to suspect something, and Frey must decide whether to deal with him violently or finally assume her own identity.… (altro)

    Divergent (Italian Edition) di Veronica Roth (Waterbuggg)
    Waterbuggg: Both series explore different ways to structure society by having the main character travel to cities that have very different cultures, values, and government structures. Both are plot-driven, somewhat dystopic, and feature complicated family and romantic relationships among teenagers.… (altro)

I was a big fan of the Uglies series years ago so when this was announced, I was very excited! This book was so easy to get into and I finished it the same day it came in the mail. You don't really need to have read the original series to get into the book, Other than the fact it might have a few sneaky spoilers (about the Pretties) and that its set after the original conflict (that does have influence on this world). But you don't need to have read the series to understand the story. It is almost completely independent besides being set in the same world. The ending had me crying for the next book, It was so good! I do feel like this book was less complex than the books in the original series so if you are new to sci-fi dystopian or had a hard time getting into the original series, I still think you will really like these books.

Check my blog for a full review of the book later this week and many more reviews! thebookbakery17.wordpress.com ( )

Hmmm very solidly 3.5.

Sigh. Sigh. Sigh. UGLIES is actually one of my favourite books ever. UGLIES and PRETTIES. SPECIALS was good, EXTRAS was fine, but UGLIES and PRETTIES, man, they were just gold. Pure gold.

So I'm kinda sad because this wasn't anywhere close to UGLIES level. This is solid. This is fine. But it felt more like a historical fantasy than a dystopian sci-fi, and it felt nothing as magical and fantastic and believable as UGLIES did. I wanted more of the politics, more explanation of how the families had come up, more explanation of the technologies they'd created and the various alliances. Very pacy though, and I enjoyed the characters.

Best aspect? Definitely the language they use. I forgot how much I adored that, how I'd previously adopted some. ( )

Probably only 2.5 stars. Too much insta love and plot holes for me to really like it. A nice easy read though. ( )

"Imposters" was just what I needed for complete immersion. Scott Westerfeld laid out a simple, believable premise, put it in his Post-Pretties Universe, and ran. I enjoyed it. ( )

Enjoyed this return to the "Uglies" universe (is that really what were calling it?) though I didnt find the culture of the cities as interesting as that in Extras. ( )
