Uglies – Wikipedia
Various critics also found a theme of humanity within Uglies. When asked how he came up with the idea of Uglies, Westerfeld said, “the inspiration came from a friend whose dentist asked him to consider getting cosmetic surgery. Amanda Craig said that “it is his prescient perception of how such inventions will lead to absolute loss of privacy which has elicited as much fan-mail as the issue of how looks dominate our lives.
In the dedication page for Uglies, Westerfeld says: In a interview on Bookyurt, Westerfeld explained that his point in writing the book was not to make a big commentary on the issues with beauty, but to make people aware of the culture of retouching that is developing in the world and to be aware of our own ideas about beauty and our need to think for ourselves.
The novel has received mostly positive reviews. The novel sparked discussion over the use of plastic surgery to improve one’s looks. We have all been altering our appearances ever since clothing was invented.
