Playing on every teen’s passionate desire to look as good as everybody else, Scott Westerfeld (Read more

Reviews (127)

5-0 out of 5 stars Loved it!
After reading the Midnighters trilogy I wanted to read more by Scott Westerfeld.Uglies was a great book.It takes place in the future.They try to prevent destruction like the people before them called "rusties" by making everyone beautiful when they turn 16.The rusties are basically us now, as I see it.All of Tally's friends have turned pretty, and she can't wait until it's her turn.All was going well until her new friend Shay runs away to a place called The Smoke to avoid being turned pretty.Tally thinks nothing of it, after all it was Shay's choice, until she is forced by Special Circumstances to find Shay and destroy The Smoke in order to be turned pretty.
5-0 out of 5 stars great book
I am not going to summarize it, but Uglies was a great book. It reminded me a little of extreme cosmetic surgery people do to themselves. It also shows that you can be beautiful without surgery and makeup and stuff, and about how some people are too appalled by the "ugliness" of a person and can't see a nice human being standing three feet away. This was a great book, but I think it is more suitable for kids around 13-14.

4-0 out of 5 stars It may be called ugly, but it certainly is not.
Ugliesby Scott Westerfield is a great book filled with it's fair share of obstacles, misunderstandings, and plenty of close calls. This story is about a young girl named Tally Youngblood who can't wait to turn pretty. Tally lives in a very condensed and small town filled with tall buildings side by side everywhere. With tons of out-of-this-world gadgets the people living in Pretty Town and Uglyville are living a dream, or so they think. In Uglyville (where Tally lives) when an 'ugly' turns sixteen they get a surgery that transforms into a drop-dead gorgeous 'pretty'. 'Pretties' have big bright eyes, symmetrical faces, and perfectly proportioned bodies, far more stunning than any ugly like Tally. But her new friend Shay questions this system, and forces Tally to look at her perfect world in a whole new way.

Editorial Review

In the epic trilogy His Dark Materials, Philip Pullman unlocks the door to worlds parallel to our own. Dæmons and winged creatures live side by side with humans, and a mysterious entity called Dust just might have the power to unite the universes--if it isn't destroyed first. The three books in Pullman's heroic fantasy series, published as mass-market paperbacks with new covers, are united here in one boxed set that includes Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful novels, and deeply spiritual
These novels are wonderful: an astonishing concept, utterly believable characters, great plot-lines, and beautifully written.
5-0 out of 5 stars after His Dark Materials.... (from my blog)
I cannot paraphrase the story in any way that would do it justice. Pullman is beyond me; the story was too rich, too powerful, too complex and subtle and ambitious, and it had to be to be equal to what I now sit here wishing I could convey to you.
5-0 out of 5 stars A grand metaphysical journey with convincing characters and details
I just finished reading this grand trilogy to my kids, aged 8, 10, and 12.My wife ended up sitting in on almost the entire series, and all of us were riveted from Oxford to the World of the Dead and back again.These books are incredibly ambitious: they set out to stitch together a religio-political history of the multiverse with deep, informed reference to physics, religious history, adolescent psychology, Nietzschean heroism, etc. etc. etc.The result, as I read it, is one of the most compelling indictments of church and state ever written for a broad audience.Author Philip Pullman concludes, without didactic hamfistedness, that the first purpose of churches and governments is self-perpetuation through maintaining the ignorance of their adherents and citizens.The greatest wisdom and joy, in Pullman's worlds, comes of full, mortal, bodily engagement with the physical world per se: with domestic comforts, food, sex, art, aesthetic involvement, work well done, craft, cleverness, etc.The well-earned consciousness of a human adult, earned through Blakean experience, is the crowning moment of all creation.Antithetical to this wisdom and consciousness is dogmatic narowness, asceticism, monasticism, self-denial, narrowness of experience.

4-0 out of 5 stars Neat Dictionary!
I am in high school and was in serious need of a decent dictionary.I didn't want to spend a fortune either.I saw this dictionary and gave it a try... I LOVE IT!Great pictures and nice quality.Very helpful! My friend ended up buying one also and enjoys it as much as I have. I highly recommend!

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for any student library
My son is 10 and in fourth grade.We use this dictionary just about everyday for studying poetry.So far, every word we've looked up has been there and with enough explanation to really make sense.We looked up the word "tread" - there were several definitions (about 4 inches worth), but each gave a sentence for context, which helped him pick out the right definition to apply.We also looked up "limerick" - the definition given was complete in that it actually included the rhyming scheme used, which was not included in two other dictionaries we have.There are color pictures and the the writing is large enough for him to read.It was also very reasonably priced.We are very happy with this Dictionary; we liked it so much we bought the American Heritage Thesaurus to go with it!

5-0 out of 5 stars I stayed up late last night reading my daughter's dictionary!
My six year old needed a dictionary to look up words for her Junior Great Books homework.At first, I was drawn to dictionaries written for 8-10 year olds.They had larger print and flashier, more colorful pictures.Unfortunately, they didn't do the job of providing definitions for the unfamiliar words we needed to define (this week we needed to find tun, puncheon, bewail, and beadle.)I was forced to look at dictionaries aimed at an older audience and found that many were just not visually appealing.I didn't want a bland reference book that would be opened as little as necessary.I wanted something worth flipping through on a rainy day.

5-0 out of 5 stars He WILL read this book.... but you should too
There's definitely no tip-toeing around in this book, which is exactly why boys will actually read it.Although I was a little shocked by the authors' candor at times, I also recognize the only way to really get through to adolescent boys is on their playing field.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wish I Had this Growing Up...Every 13 year old Boy Needs this Book.
I purchased this book for my friends son who is 13 years old and before giving it to her I read through it myself. All of the information is very important (12+ years old) and can help educate young boys to make decisions based on knowledge they obtained before there is a problem rather than after, like what I went through when I was growing up and I'm sure countless others have that did not have the benefit and knowledge in this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good info, a little too advanced
The first third of this book contained good information for my 11-year-old son.It explains what happens to a boy's body in a way he was able to understand.The remainder of the book also has good information, but the topics of intercourse and STDs were more than my son was ready for. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Good, but drags your mind through the gutter
While containing helpful strategies and ideas, unfortunately the writers drag your mind through the gutter as they graphically discuss accounts of sexual discovery. One teenager I disciple recently told me this book actually caused him to stumble more, since it put new ideas in his mind! Parents and youth leaders should carefully screen this book because it can do more do more harm than good for certain teens.
5-0 out of 5 stars We're All In This Together... Be The Change, Make The Difference, Influence The World...
This book is more than a self-help guide, a "for dummies", a book for better living, but a book towards better life, through God. It doesn't sugar coat or beat around the bush, it gives practical advice on what it means to be a man, and how our daughters, or lady friends, our girlfriends, should be treated. What is purity? How do you define purity, the world today, constantly changing and defining human behaviour, what line do you draw as a standard? This book lets you discover what it means to be a man and how to act purely through God. I strongly recommend it to any young man. It will change your life.
2-0 out of 5 stars Good intentions but misguided...
A good friend of mine gave me this book in order to destroy my inner demons, namely, lust. I was a willing candidate, being part of the church circle, bible studies, and accountability groups; I wanted to eliminate this evil within me before I was sentenced... to hell! This book offered many examples of how to train your mind away from thinking about sex, all of which fail miserably. Luckily, I have come to my senses at least partially on life, lust, and sex, the human condition, and the futility of fighting with human nature. This book is concerned with abstention, not understanding, and understanding is what you really need. Let me give you an even better strategy, and know that these sparse lines offer you more aid than this entire book:

3-0 out of 5 stars New Series

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow--great read for all!
Rachel Caine fans are in for another rockin' ride in this new series!
3-0 out of 5 stars A good book for the right age group but a disappointment for us "grown ups"
I love Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series and was keen to read this, the first in a new series subtitled "The Morganville Vampires". However, this book is VERY different from the Weather Warden series - our heroine is a 16 year old girl going off to College. As an English woman the American college system seems very bizarre at the best of times but Claire's experiences in her first six weeks at her new college in Morganville are even stranger. She's a bit of a brainy nerd and pretty soon falls foul of Monica, the 'cool but dim' girl who, with her acolytes, virtually runs the college. They gang up against Claire and, in order to escape various attempts to harm her, some successful, Claire moves out and starts living in an old house with two young men, Shane and Michael, and a goth girl, Eve. Once there she begins to find out some very strange things about the town of Morganville, its residents and the rules that she needs to know to be protected from the evil things out there.

5-0 out of 5 stars becoming a movie!!!
i really adored this book and the 3rd book is taking much to long to come out! I have heard that Mel Gibson recently picked up these books as a screen play. He is making a movie out of this! I for one, cannot wait to here more about it, but since the third isnt out yet, ill have to wait even longer.

5-0 out of 5 stars one in a million
one of the best follow up books ever written.Lies, secrets, and friendship what else could you have in a story like this. The story will keep you dancing on your toes all the way through the book. If you have read the first book A Great and Terrible Beauty you will know that this book will be as good as the first.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Sequel
Sequels are tricky and they're famous for not living up to an original- either the writer will try to rehash what was successful in the original, in which case the result is too often boring a second time around; or she'll attempt to take thestory into a different place and risks not being true to the initial characters and situations. Libba Bray does both- she brings her story forward while remaining true to what made the first novel good.

Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire are at Briny Beach one day when Mr. Poe, a friend of their parents, arrives to tell them that their house has burned down, and that their parents have died in the fire. They now have become orphans. The orphans live with Mr. Poe until he can find a guardian for them. He finally places them with their nearest relative, Count Olaf, who is either their third cousin four times remove.Count Olaf, a dirty man with one eyebrow, shiny eyes, and a tattoo of an eye on his ankle, turns out to be a greedy and mean actor who wants the huge Baudelaire fortune for himself. When he finds that he will not receive it, he treats the children poorly and forces them to do difficult chores for himself and his acting group.
5-0 out of 5 stars Bad beginning but exciting story.
I read this book because a friend of mine recommended. In first part I was so bored that I almost slept. Then when I tried to sleep an exciting scene came out. It was a eye-opener. It was about that Count Olaf was yelling at Baudelaires. They cooked, but olaf hated it. In first part I thought that olaf was a good man. That's why it woke me up. Another thing is that the pictures seemed very good and real. Even though they were black and white I liked it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Bad Beginning
A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket is a great, yet surprising book. In this book, there are three children named Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire. They are the main characters, or the protagonists. Violet, the oldest likes to invent and build thing, she is very smart. Klaus, who is the middle child is also very smart and likes to examine creatures in tide pools and also likes to read. Sunny, who is only an infant loves to bite anything she can get her hands on. The problem starts out, when they figure out their house has burned down, and their parents have died. The Baudelaire family is very wealthy and they lived in a mansion with a huge library. Violet, Klaus and sunny have to stay at Mr. Poe's house, who is a very good friend of their parents. The children decide they do not like it there and learn that they are leaving and staying with their distant relative named Count Olaf. Count Olaf is the enemy or the antagonist in this story, who they have never heard of. When they arrive at his house, it looked very strange and bent out of shape. Also when they met him he acted very weird as if he was hiding something. He made them do all of the chores and make dinner for him and for when all his friends come over to rehearse lines for their play. They children started getting suspicious, when Count Olaf slaps Klaus on the face and one of his friends mention he should try to steal their fortune. The children try to tell Mr. Poe, but he does not believe that Count olaf would do such a thing. Since he won't believe them, they do a little research and find out that you can only get someone's fortune by marriage. Not to long after, Count Olaf suggests that they should be in a play with him, and violet would be the bride, and Klaus and Sunny would work backstage. Now I can't tell what happens next, so you will just have to read this book, put together the clues, and figure it out for yourself. I suggest this book, because I thought it was very good, and I was never bored. I actually read it in one day. It also has a good lesson to it, which is to be thankful for what you have, because when you least expect it, you could have nothing. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My [...] could not put it down!
Both "The Sea of Monsters" as well as the first book in the series, "The Lightning Thief" were fantastic books that my eleven-year old son could not put down.He tends to be very critical about books but this series is a new favorite.He is recommending these books to friends and is looking forward to Riordan's next edition. "The Sea of Monsters" has also peaked his interest in mythology. I recommend you try this series if you want to inspire your child's interest in reading.

I bought Lightning Thief on a whim from a school book fair (I have always been a mythology lover so it looked intriguing). What an understatement!!!I started to read this book and couldn't put it down.It left me wanting more and voila... Sea of Monsters was available.I got the book immediately and read it just as fast as the first.I keep checking online, waiting for the next book.

3-0 out of 5 stars need more practice!!!
this book had some good ideas, but some, like its methods for taking the writing and reading sections were silly. very silly. also, it definately didnot provide enough practice problems/tests to actually practice using the techniques to ace the act. if i could go back in the past, i definately wouldn't buy this book again. i think from now on, i'll stick with kaplan.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thorough review for the ACT
The Practice tests are a little bit harder than the real ACT tests. The review material is very helpful, in-depth, and easy-to-understand. This book improved my score by 6 points. DONT buy this version with the CD because the software is horrible and the images on the practice tests are distorted.

5-0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS AN INVESTMENT
i do not usually go crazy for the cracking the AP series but this one is by far the gold standard. Covers all the material concisely, relevant problems, very user friendly. If you are committed enough to take the AP Chem give yourself the best possible advantage and get this book. I did not find one error which is incredibly rare.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best AP Chem review book available!
I owned or perused several different review books for the AP Chemistry Exam, but this was certainly the best. I've never seen an AP book as perfectly on-target as this one. Certain books (like Barron's AP Chem) contain too much information where it actually impedes your preparation, whereas others contain too little (which Princeton Review sometimes tends to do). But this book gets the combination just right. It reviews ALL of the necessary facts and concepts you need to know, and excludes everything you don't need to know. Trust me when I say that this book is on the money. And oh, I got a 5.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book = key to getting a 5 on the AP test
I am very pleased with this book. Although there are a few typos, it gets the point out very effectively. I used it to do ALL of my studying for the AP test (along with actual AP practice tests) and got a 5!!!Just make sure you go through the free response questionsin each section, even if u dont do the multiple choice. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Shan has done it again!
I love this series to death!I was super excited when the last book finally came out.I read it in less than a day.I couldn't put it down.I was shocked at the end.I was literally almost in tears.I'm sad Mr. Crepsley wasn't in the last three books.He was my favorite character and I'd love this book even more if he was in it!I have to say, I'm sad that it's over.I've read this series at least three times.I love vampire books, and this series was by far the best.It gets boring with your typical "blood-sucking, night walkers" vampire stories, but Darren Shan put a total twist on it and that made it new and refreshing.That's what I loved most.And the fact that he uses his own name saying it really happened makes it a little better.Overall, it was an excellent book!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars You MUST read this book!!!
I love this book! I just finished it today and I started it 3 days ago. Usually I can read these books in less than a day but with school and everything its hard to squeeze an entire book in one day. I agree with everyone the ending is a little corny. But without a doubt I would tell anyone to read this book. Although it looks like a book that guys would like, I am a girl and fell in love with these books I have the entire series and I am starting to read Darren Shan's new series; The Demonata. I am waiting for the 3rd book to come out and it feels like it is taking forever! But anyway, this book has many surprises and unexpected events. I don't want to blow the big question who is the Lord of Shadows? Darren or Steve? But I will say that Vancha apparently did not die because over the 2 years after the Lord is revealed Evanna get pregnant with Vancha and his brother. I must say this book will keep you wanting more! I actually cried when I finished the book because I loved the whole series and for it to end they way it did makes me dissappointed. But I have been on Darren's site and he said after the 10 book series of The Demonata (which I must say is a great series for anyone who loved Cirque Du Freak)he MIGHT write a 2nd season to the Cirque Du Freak books but nothing is a deffinate. All I can really say is READ THIS BOOK!!! you will love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars i agree good book sad ending
this is a very good book.but the ending was sad. I was expecting more of an after shock like ??? um i forgot who said that.well this is awsome and very sad I mean im a boy and i got sad.and your right i cant believe its over, it stinks. I mean it was a crudy ending and he is cheating the veiwers. And the worse part of all darren never got to say bye to Vancha daries or especialy Annie. Also what ever happend to Vancha after Gannen stabbed him. The real Darren if you read this please tell me.Now dont get me wrong its by the far best series ive ever read and i own the whole series. Just it leaves the veiwers a gap in the story.I think there should be 1 more book. I cant stand it, the books is like my bible well not really but there so good its really hard to believe that its all over,all the waiting you ,we had to do to get the series it just is not that fair and im pretty shure people agree with me. I hate it really its so addicting its really not funny.I got grounded because i skipped meals and staid way pass my bed time reading, of coarse if you read them i think you would know. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely captivating and brilliant!
When I first heard about the book, it was because a friend recomended it. She said it was one of the best books she ever read, and after reading it myself I completely agree. It is about a girl growing up in the Chinese Cultural Revolution and facing the challenge of growing up in a family with a bad reputation according to the government. I liked this book because it really made me think about how kids are living. Also, because I like books about people with a realistic life, not a fairytale. I would reccomend it to any of my friends!

1-0 out of 5 stars Stinks
Don't like it at all. Don't even waste your time reading it. i was forced to read it!!! Two thumbs DOWN :-(!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars The Depth of Mankind...
This is not the first and probably not the last 'Cultural Revolution Memoir' that I have read.I must admit feeling a bit numb to the stories and account of this tragic point in Chinese history.It has been over a year since that last 'memoir' that I have read, and a friend passed the book on for me to check out.It was time to be reminded of the pain that so many around me have faced in their lives.What is remarkable about Ji Li Jiang's story is not the uniqueness, but rather the commonness of her experience among millions of others.This in no way should negate her or others struggles, yet rather serve to deepen compassion for the many who have experienced destruction at the hands fellow humans.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comics most powerful villian at his best
What can I say Ensabuh Nur is simply amazing as the anti-christ of this book he actually feels that he is God in this Story alot of shocking suff goes on in this story guys who are usually bad are good and the ones who are usually good are bad plus this story arc gave birth to many characters that are around to this day.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book 1 for fans... Book 2 in comparison
Most fans would rather they made this book vol. 2 and the second vol. sould have been first. But this is because everyone likes the other issues (and for good reason) more.
3-0 out of 5 stars First Half is great, but Vol. 2 should be read first...
The Age of Apocalypse was the high mark for the X-Men (and company) in the 1990s, and can in many ways be considered the climax of the X-Men saga.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Age Appropriate
I bought this book for my four-year old.The age recommendation is four to eight.The text is entirely too graphic and detailed for children of this age.Parts of the book read like KISS lyrics or soft-porn.While this book is factually accurate and contains anatomically correct pictures, it is NOT age-appropriate.

5-0 out of 5 stars This was how I learned "the facts of life" :)
I remember thinking this was a great book when I was a little kid. I agree with the reviewer who said that it's most appropriate for small children; I was probably 5 or 6 when my mom gave it to me. I remember it being very cute, and not the least bit distasteful. Half of my family works as delivery room nurses, so I was asking lots of questions early on! I know folks whose parents were so embarrassed about giving "the talk" that they learned everything from kids on the school bus, etc. This book is a great way of presenting information in a way young children can understand, without having to lie to them or change the subject.

3-0 out of 5 stars Pictures are a little much...
Other than the picture of mommy and daddy in the bath tub together, I think this is a pretty good book.It puts this part of life in todler terms.If you are easily offended by graphics, don't buy this book. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Umm..........
What a life that Lemony Snicket has. I loved the format of this book. It was like a newspaper artical at first.I didn't think it was that interesting. I mean peoples lives are interesting its just i couldn't get into it. I love all of this other books just not this one. This book tell about the life of Lemony Snicket.

5-0 out of 5 stars Every sentence hides a secret!
Seriously, after about five pages into this book, you'll feel like you're reading a coded message from one spy to another. Like a previous reviewer said, it's best to read this after reading a lot of the other books (I would try up to Hostile Hospital) so you can understand it.I began to read this after Austere Academy and I regretted buying it.Then, after reading the other books, I gave this a shot, and it was so much more easy to read!!So much is revealed, but also so many more questions are raised.I have the paperback edition, but I think I'll get the hardcover, cause that reversable cover sound GREAT!!!! If you are a fan of A Series of Unfortunate Events, pick this up!

5-0 out of 5 stars You really don't want to read this....
i know some people have said that you shouldnt read this until further on it the series but keep in mind that this book was published before a lot of the series. so read it WHILE you're reading the series and you'll catch on to all the little clues and hints. i can't wait until the book with the letters from beatrice comes out, she is more important than just the dedication lines. Keep in mind, Lemony has a lot up his sleeves for the last book...

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good
i took the sat ii math level 2.i really didnt study too hard until like 2 weeks before the test.i only used this book and i still managed to crack 700.this book covers more info than that is actually on the test.the strategies that it gives are very helpful and if you just read through and do the examples, i am pretty sure that you could crack 700.i was only a sophomore when i took the test and i didnt even take calculus yet, so i must say, this book was sooo helpful!

4-0 out of 5 stars A good review book.
Well, I just got back my Math 1 score from the June administration of the SAT Subject tests.I got a 730, which I think is a result of using this great book.It is a little unorganized, but everything you need is there if you'll read the entire book.Unlike other Princeton review books that cover two levels of tests (like the AP Calc AB & BC book), this one actually divides well between Level 1 and Level 2 materials.Overall, it had a great review of the material, with explanations of how to do the practice problems and not just the answers.The practice tests were more difficult than the actual exam.I got a 650 on one and a 660 on the second one, despite the fact I got a 730 on the real SAT test.It's much better than the Sparknotes Math 1 book, which I also used to review.I basically got 800s on their tests because you could recognize how to do all the problems from practice problems in the book.One test didn't vary much from the next.But that's not the case with the Princeton Review book, because you cannot really recognize the problems as familiar.It's overall a great book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good
The book is pretty good, the test are harder than the actual. That is actually good for practice. Using this book will increase your scores.
