Uglies - Scott Westerfeld

So I am not going to totally rip this.  But it is something I am not going to spend any more time on.

 

I never got into this.  I am about 50% of the way and couldn't care less about the characters or the plot.  I thought the premise would be strong enough to hold me but it never even got me going.

 

In reality the premise seemed weak and the world-building was not there to support the plot.  I honestly feel like I know nothing about the world or the characters at this point.  Normally I would feel some connections to at least one character or feel absorbed into the plot.  None of that is happening.

 

Too many books and too little time are gonna do this one in for me.  DNF at roughly 50%.
