    Uglies de Scott Westerfeld (KingRat)
    KingRat: The White Mountains contains issues similar to those of Uglies: secret control of a society, "mind control", induction into that society, and rebellion against it while pretending to be a member. There are obvious major differences too. Still, enough similarities in style and substance that I suspect people who enjoy one will enjoy the other.… (mais)

Someone mentioned this at bookclub and it came up from my memory hole as something I read as a kid. However, nothing in this read was familiar so maybe I had just heard of it. It's a very interesting premise but it does seem like a book for kids(which it is). I think as adult science fiction there would be far more development of the society and slow realization of the Tripods and the Capping by Will. Instead, it just plunges away. Parts of it are very evocative and the world of living under the unacknowledged rule of the Tripods feels like a real place but sometimes he just skips things. But I still put a hold on book 2 of the trilogy.

I read this book at night to my kids (we took some breaks and I also read other books as well). We all really enjoyed reading this book, which is an adventure of 3 boys in a post-apocalyptic world.

I first encountered this book when I was a boy, 9 or 10, reading Boys Life Magazine. It was a serial comic at that time and I loved it. I remember reading it and talking to my cousin about it and finding out that it was based on a novel, or a series of novels. I was so excited, especially when I found the books at my local library.

I have re-read this series many times and enjoy it each time. The struggle for freedom expressed it the book is particularly poignant to me.

One thing I noticed particularly this time is that these long adventures against the odds are not all fun filled. The characters deal with many different set backs including fatigue, hunger, and illness. The depiction of these things brings a degree of reality to me. ( )

Read this when I was 10 or 11. I have remembered it ever since as an invigorating and frighting read. No idea what it would be like to read 25 years later, but it was a not-fun-but-terrifying YA level read. ( )

When revisiting a memorable book from childhood, it's interesting to go back and see what age it was recommended for. Scholastic says this series is for 6-8th grade, which seems a bit late. The 'great man' theory permeates this (absolutely fine, engaging) series, and I think it does a disservice to the reader's intelligence if they are really reading this in 8th grade (I mean, they are 13-14 years old at that point!). You have the normal issue with most book protagonists - everything important happens to them or near them or with their help, and layered on top of this is a coda where humanity goes back to it's warring ways because they couldn't trust one great man to lead them. I think this series is a fine introduction to science fiction for a young reader, with the understanding that it may reinforce weird beliefs about 'great men of history.'

I give books in a series, with a few exceptions, the same review. ( )

This was an enjoyable re-read, but not as powerful as it was when I was younger. I think that's because I was the target audience then, and am not now. I couldn't help now but imagine what this book would be like if aged-up a bit, with more descriptions and character development and tension. It's still a great story, but it doesn't have the same impact now as it did then. ( )
