Hard to start, but a thrill once you're into it!

Uglies - Scott Westerfeld

It took me a while to get into this book. I had just finished The Giver and Uglies felt so superficial I wanted to hit myself of the head with a pan. Nonetheless I'm never one to get completely discouraged and the trilogy fell straight into the type of books I'm into, so I decided to keep reading. 


Once I finally felt empathy and interest in regards to the main character I finally started to let myself be taken into the story. I like how the author made a credible change in mentality occur in Tally. It started slow but it made things so much more realistic in the end. 


The ending itself was pretty much a cliffhanger... going to start the next one right away and I hope it's just as good!
