Specials by Scott Westerfeld
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So this was my least favorite in the trilogy. I am excited to read about someone new in Extras. In this book Tally and her friends are Specials, not just Specials but Special Specials... Cutters. They are a new breed of Specials. They are on a mission to take out the rebels of the New Smoke!
Tally was pretty awful during this book, her character was that of Dr. Cable's doing but still, I didn't like her or identify with her until the end. She was so different and I guess the author did a good job of making me dislike her character. I was glad to see more of David in this one and how the New Smoke was revolutionizing the "world."
Andrew Simpson Smith even makes a quick cameo!
The book was fast paced, a lot of it was action packed. There wasn't really a dull moment but with all the action a lot of the thinking, conversations, and world that I liked in Uglies and Pretties faded away.
I'm glad I got some closure as to what happens and I liked the ending. It suited Tally and the series.
