    1. If Shay's Story was basically Uglies rewritten from Shay's perspective rather than Tally's, Cutters is even more precisely a retelling of Pretties from Shay's point of view. Now that Dr. Cable has arrested the Smokies, and Shay and Tally have undergone the Pretty-making procedure, the events of the previous book are less fresh and urgent in their minds. The Prettying operation includes invasive brain surgery to reduce problematic instinctive drives and tone down critical thinking abilities, and [...]

    2. I took my time getting through this because I'm such a die-hard Uglies fan. Even though Tally isn't the main MC anymore, I still enjoyed and loved Shay. Just like with the first graphic novel I got to explore a whole new side to Shay's Story.In this novel we start with Shay living and coping with being a pretty. She also struggles with remembering her life before being a pretty, I hadn't known she kinda lost her memory of her smoky days. For a while Shay's enjoying life and getting into her old [...]

    3. Again, amazing. It is so interesting to see how Shay was thinking and what Tally looked like through her eyes, especially in the Pretty-time. So much jealousy but mostly loss. I like seeing the same story we already know from Shay's POV. I'm wondering when the next one will come out. "Specials" was my favorite book of the trilogy.

    4. Being a bit of a die-hard "Uglies" fan and adoring Scott Westerfeld, I was naturally pumped when I discovered manga adaptations were in the works. Sadly, I was never able to get my hands on a copy of "Shay's Story", but I was, in fact, lucky enough to win an ARC of "Cutters".I must say it was thoroughly stunning, beyond my expectations. The illustrations, despite being black and white, are visually striking, and convey the world of the books exactly how I imagined it. The plot correlated with th [...]

    5. I enjoyed this graphic novel just as much as the first and I hope the author decides to finish off the series from Shay's side. I would love to read what happens next in her POV. In addition to just really enjoying this story, the author has turned me on to the possibility of reading more Graphic Novel spin offs or retellings of my favorite books. I'd always shied away before thinking I wouldn't like them as much, but these books changed my mind.

    6. 3.5 stars - I like the main character far more than Tally, the hero of the novels.However, and while I love (and really love) the series and this series being a complementing of the novels (love it!) as a stand alone GN is still a bit weak, because the story jumps by leaps and bounds, filling in the story from Shay's point of view. The problem is that if you didn't read the novels, you'll be missing a lot and not understanding the connection.That's what costs this book 1.5 stars.

    7. Unimpressive. And really doesn't add anything. Which isn't completely fair because it's been awhile since I read this series. But other than reminding me of plot elements, I really didn't care about anything in it all that much. And the art didn't ring true either. But it wasn't bad. It just wasn't all that good. 2.5 of 5.

    8. Not as much fun as the first manga, but that’s how I felt about Pretties after reading Uglies so it makes sense. Kinda sad that I don’t have manga of the third book here, because I would keep marathoning otherwise.

    9. a nice little addition to the Uglies series. i read the series a long time ago so it was fun to go back and relive some of the characters and places in the series. :) light little read.

    10. I was so disappointing!!! The second novel made no sense. So many plot holes. Although, the enjoyed the second novel more than the first.

    11. I really am enjoying these graphic novels, especially because they bring in such an important side of the Uglies story. Most people know I am an avid Uglies lover, so these are musts for me and I don't think it's possible for me not to enjoy them and soak in every little picture and line.The interesting thing about this story is it is about Shay, and while the first graphic novel (Shay's Story) fills in the pieces of her time in the Smoke, this one fills in her time at New Pretty Town while Tall [...]

    12. Disclaimer: I received an ARC of Pretties: Cutter manga as part of a promotion. I have not read the previous volume, nor was I aware of the YA novel series Uglies written by Scott Westerfeld before opening the pages of this manga. I went in completely blind.The first thing that jumped out at me was that the illustrations are gorgeous. Steven Cummings knocks it out of the park with his manga style artwork. This unfortunately makes the difference between the Uglie (shown in flashbacks) and the Pre [...]

    13. This review was originally posted on my book review blog, The Overstuffed Bookcase.*Warning: This is the second book in a series. While I really don't like spoilers, you might find some slight Book 1 spoilers in this review.*This is the second book in a series, and actually it's the graphic novel adaptation of Pretties, which is the second book in the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, as told from Shay's point of view instead of Tally's. So since it's a sequel, and since I flew through this boo [...]

    14. I read the original Uglies series by Westerfeld a long, long time ago. A couple years ago I picked up the first Uglies graphic novel and really enjoyed hearing Shay’s side of the story. I have had Cutters on my wishlist for a while and finally got my hands on it. It was a well done book and I enjoyed it. I think I would have enjoyed it even more if the series was a bit fresher in my head. I think you will probably need to read the original book series in order to grasp what is going on here.Th [...]

    15. I'm disappointed. :(I finished this book in one sitting, in 35 mins, and probably about 10 of those minutes was spent flipping back trying to figure out where I was in the story and who the characters were. It was so hard to know, and sometimes I didn't even know who Shay was! That was my main complaint. In fact it was my only complaint, and it took away a whole 2 stars!! Some of my other thoughts are below:Pros:- Great graphics/art (for the most part)- Interesting story/perspectiveCons:- Confus [...]

    16. The Uglies is a four book series by Scott Westerfeld that dealt with a dystopia where everyone was made pretty, but brain damaged in order to maintain social order. The books starred Tally Youngblood, a girl who tried to protest the system, but kept finding herself used by those in power. It was an interesting and fun series, but I always thought that Tally’s friend Shay was far more interesting than Tally herself. This graphic novel series, therefore, was made for me. Grayson and Cummings ret [...]

    17. I won this book from First Reads giveaways in exchange for an honest review.I absolutely loved the Uglies trilogy by Scott Westerfield-- one of the most imaginative dystopian worlds that I had encountered. I have not read the first in the Shay graphic novels, but I felt I knew enough from the other novels to read this one.Uglies: Cutters by Scott Westerfield tells us the story of Pretties from Shay's perspective, the complicated best frenemy of Tally, the protagonist of the original novels. We [...]

    18. I received this book for free through First Reads. I have wanted to read the Uglies series for some time, but didn't have a lot of free time. When I saw they had created a graphic novel version, my current reading passion, I was thrilled. I read the Uglies: Shay's Story, then followed it up immediately after because the first was enjoyable. This book didn't disappoint. It too was a really nice complete story that was easy to follow and contained great graphics. It continues Shay's story after s [...]

    19. Uglies: Cutters is a graphic novel retelling of Pretties by Scott Westerfeld, from Shay's perspective. It's the sequel to Uglies: Shay's Story. Shay's story in Pretties basically consists of her rejoining the Crims, and starting up the Cutters, a group of Pretties who cut themselves in order to achieve the mental clarity that's so difficult for Pretties to reach.I pretty much had the same issues with this book as I did with Uglies: Shay's Story. Basically, all the people look the same, which is [...]

    20. I think it was"interesting" to see Shay's point of view. I still don't like her and really couldn't care less about her POV, but it did add to the story Pretties by Scott Westerfeld. This book gives the backstory as to why Shay became a cutter and why she had so much animosity towards Tally. If anything, this book has made me dislike Shay even more. Once Tally came into the picture, you can clearly see that Shay's not happy about it. Oh wait, they're supposed to be best friends though.I haven't [...]

    21. I won this book on after entering due to curiosity. I had already read the Uglies series and was curious to see what a graphic novel of the book would entail. Reading this book was like visiting a foreign country: great sites to see, a new awareness of other cultures, but also an eagerness to return home to my familiar surroundings. The artwork is fabulous and there certainly is a market for graphic novels in the teen world, but alas, I am merely a visitor to that place. The voice was clearly y [...]

    22. This was beautiful. I love the story of Shay in Pretties, her side has always interested me and now i finally get to see it and with beautiful illustrations. The portrayal of Shay and her toxic relationship with Tally was fantastic, I always feel incredibly annoyed at the opposite girl while reading the Uglies series and this is no exception. Tally really was a total jerk to Shay, the relationship was very one-sided on Shay wanting more from Tally and Tally keeping her distance. There were certa [...]

    23. So I read this book in one sitting. I literally sat down on the couch and started and finished the book in about 40 to 45 minutes. A very quick read, being a graphic novel. I didn't enjoy Cutters as much as Shay's Story, but I still enjoyed it. I love learning about the story from Shay's point of view. However, I sometimes found it really difficult to follow the story when I couldn't see any noticeable, distinctive difference in characters. I now can sympathize with Shay as well as Tally, but no [...]

    24. Meh. While I loved Westerfeld's Uglies series, this manga didn't do it for me. Above all, I never really liked Shay in the original stories, so I have little interest in her perspective through the manga. Additionally, the illustrations are so"manga-cute" that the edginess and tension of the original story are overshadowed by frills and forelocks. Oh, and the whole cutting aspect of the story is way more disturbing when rendered visuallyWorth reading for super fans of the series but only if you [...]

    25. I have to admit I'd forgotten most of the story line of Pretties, so I was a little lost at the beginning. But once I got into it, memories started coming back. Maybe I'm just forgetting this part of the novel, but I didn't understand the whole Ranger in the forest with the Princess thing. It was kind of a representation of Shay and Tally's relationship, I guess. It was kind of odd how it would just have a single page by itself randomly throughout the book. However, it was very well done and I e [...]

    26. To start, Uglies is one of my favorite series' and Scott Westerfeld is my favorite author. I had read the first graphic novel but did not realize there was a second one until I saw this on . Overall I enjoyed this. It's nice to see the story from a different perspective and to get new information on what was happening while Tally was off being main-character-y. It took me a moment to get into, just because it's been so long since I read Uglies.I would recommend this and the first graphic novel t [...]

    27. I really do prefer the books. But if these graphic novels are going to get kids to read the books, okay. The plot, writing and drawing are sound. There is nothing to complain about. It expands the story of the world of the Uglies novels, therefore giving more information for the diehard fan. It doesn't have the impact of a Sandman or even the Buffy serilaztion, but is still good in of itself. I don't if the Manga fan will like. I will have to ask my daughter for that.*I won this in a giveaway

    28. I was impressed with this book, especially since I am a fan of the "Uglies" series. I am not generally a fan of graphic novels, but this is an exception. My only complaint is that it's only a chunk of a book. If I hadn't read the original book, I would complain about a cliff-hanger. I loved the art, and the story was great - although I expected that.I received this book for free through ' First Reads giveaway program.
