Though the book could be long and unsuspenseful in some parts, the book was still great and I have a lot of anticipation for how the book ends! The story-line is one of the quite creative, and the characters are great. I can't wait to read Extras!

Hm, Something happened between Pretties, and Specials. This book was significantly worse than pretties. It wasn't even close to being interesting.
The next book after was also PRETTY dissapointing (Pun intended).
It was just really boring to read. The first two were amazing... Then this?
It kinda ruined the series (and also my view on Tally)

I did not like this book because it glorified self-harm and never clarified that it's not the right thing to do. Cutting does not make you cool, and does not free you from anything. It might feel good in the moment but could get you addicted and is dangerous to your health. If you are considering self-harm, please seek help or find alternative coping strategies like drawing on your skin or using ice or cutting paper. Cutting does not make you icy or elite or special. Please, don't do it.

What happened between "Pretties" and this that made Tally lose all her agency? I mean, she made some boneheaded mistakes in the first two books, but at least was an active protagonist. She spends this book getting pulled along in the wake of other people's plans. Very disappointing.

The series is progressing to be more and more stereotypical, but the suspense building is great. Honestly, I hate the series at this point, but the suspense is making me keep reading it.

I like this series a lot. It was excellent as far as distopian societies go. I don't care for how the "one girl, two boys" drama concluded but honestly Tally's love life was the least interesting aspect of her character. Both boys were better "friend" characters in my opinion. And Tally's relationship with Shay was by far the most complex and interesting. The final battle with Dr. Cable was brilliantly anti-climactic after a series packed with action. It may have been my favourite part.

Tally definitely had it coming, but loved how the character development happens through the phases. Now wait til the poop hits the fan, will Tally be able to outrun and outplay Dr. Cable? Will she remember her former life? Great ending to the trilogy.

The last book of the trilogy. Tally is now transformed into the one thing she used to despise the most- a Special. Along with her best friend Shay, they've now been programmed to hunt the New Smoke- but they're in for a special surprise.
