There were mixed reviews in our group about The Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. While some members appreciated the young, care-free, teenybopper-like feel of the book, others could have done without it. The entire group did, however, enjoy the creative, futuristic plot about young people challenging the ideas of a utopian society.
This book was easy to read and very well written. We often found ourselves getting lost in the dramatic plot and alluring characters (Tally Youngblood, David, the pretties and the uglies). We have to admit that this one really got our imaginations going.
Though we all agreed that this was a page real page turner, only some of the group members are interested in reading the other books in this four-part series.
In 2010, our book club, Women Wine and Word, started out as a brilliant idea from one of our members (we call her the queen). We meet once a month to discuss our books, eat some food, drink a little wine, and have fun with our friends.
We invite you to check out our monthly blogs, browse through our reading list, or take a peek at our book reviews (FYI - only a few books have received 5/5 wine glasses).
