Weekly Geek Challenge Haiku Review

I have to qualify the title and say that I can't review in haiku, but I can summarize in haiku. So, here goes...

Rules by Cynthia Lord
David tries, Catherine
tries deflecting laughter and
each needs the other

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Tally betrays her
friend, learns truth about what lies
under all pretties

Pretties by Scott Westerfeld
Bubbly is the rave
most pretties do not it crave,
but Crims are special

Specials by Scott Westerfeld
Shay is in control,
David to Diego goes
to keep rights ugly

Extras by Scott Westerfeld
Three years time has passed
Aya kicks catastrophes,
Tally saves the day


  1. I agree--it's hard to do more than summarise a book in haiku. I think they also make more sense if you've read the book, but for the most part, these came out pretty clearly.
