Imagine living in a world where when you turn sixteen you have to change completely? Scott Westerfeld’s, the author of the book Uglies, purpose of writing the story is to teach us that no one needs to change in order to feel like they belong. Scott Westerfeld, I wonder how you came up with the world in which the characters live? I wonder if you were ever made fun of for being ugly? I wonder if you think our world will become this?
There are many things similar in Uglies and Fahrenheit 451. Fahrenheit 451 and Uglies both take place in a dystopian society. Since they both are in a dystopian society they both have some misfortunes. They both had to do with some people dying in the book. In the book Uglies, David’s dad dies because David and Tally couldn’t get to him in time.
They are ugly. In the book Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, the main character, Tally, fights with these imaginations every single day until she turns 16 years old. In the society where she lives people are judged as ugly before their 16th birthday. It is different as getting the driver license. It is similar as having a totally different life.
The picture of the possessed book holding a knife could also instill fear in someone. Though the picture may seem a bit humorous, it is really symbolizing that books kill. (STEWE-2) This meme shows pathos also through sadness. The picture of the woman crying while reading a book can also a make a person feel sad and want to empathize with the person. The picture of the depressed person in the corner of an alleyway can make a someone feel sad due to all the dark colors and the hidden face of the person.
The book is about a dystopia society in the future. To read forbidden books are not prohibited because the state said so. It is a very evil society there they think books are dangerous for the society. Fire-fighters trying to find books to burn them, with the help from a robotic dog and humans betraying each other. All the time you hear the sound from military aircraft and that makes it feel like war is coming.
Dystopian novels get rid of science and technology in order to control a society and take away individualism. In modern society, technology and science help create innovation that better the lives of people nationally and globally. These innovations make us less dependent on governmental rules and regulation. This is one of the main reasons they are not seen in dystopias. If you read a dystopia, whichever one, you will realize that the population it portrays follows the order of the government and doesn’t thing beyond those boundaries in fear of the consequences.
The premise seems realistic and it can trick the reader into thinking it is not a fantasy novel until the point the Grievers appear into the plot. It might not be a surprise why the book was a major success all around the world. People love a good action-mystery novel especially if it a trilogy as this with two more books
I like vampire stories, and this book gives me a set of idea at the same time a change of ideas about the character traits vampires do possess. It will drift you to the different beliefs that you will just think the big difference of each Culture. I enjoyed, almost, I’m just devastated with its language. The words are really deep that it takes me 5 index cards of vocabulary word, it takes time to fully understand the sarcasm and the joke. Here’s the last part, fellows, I am recommending this book to you, not just because I am required to do so, but this is something you
The Novel is a good read and convincing to the person who are having pre-marital sex and having an affair. Well it is one of a story that prevents pre-marital sex and scares a person to have a sexual relationship with someone. The ideas are developed from strangers to love but the author does not conlude the chapter and does not summarize it but it is convicing to everyone because it is a lovely story of two strangers who met in a apartment and started falling inlove. It needs to be a film. There are no footnotes but there are headnotes which it describes the point of view of each chapter.
