Publisher's Summary

Extras, the final book in the Uglies series, is set a couple of years after the "mind-rain", a few earth-shattering months in which the whole world woke up. The cure has spread from city to city, and the pretty regime that kept humanity in a state of bubbleheadedness has ended. Boundless human creativity, new technologies, and old dangers have been unleashed upon the world. Culture is splintering, the cities becoming radically different from each other as each makes its own way into this strange and unpredictable future....

One of the features of the new world is that everyone has a "feed", which is basically their own blog/Myspace/TV channel. The ratings of your feed (combined with how much the city interface overhears people talking about you) determines your social status - so everyone knows at all times how famous they are.

As Scott Westerfeld explored the themes of extreme beauty in the first three Uglies books, now he takes on the world's obsession with fame and popularity. And how anyone can be an instant celebrity.

    "Was this really from the same author???"

    I really enjoyed the first 3 books this sounded like it was written by a tween. It kept repeating the same tired slang. It was boredom -making!!!!
    The actress had 2 voices, female and lower.
    It took will power to make it to the end. Really, you should have stopped at the 3rd book.

    "loved the overall story Uglies to Extras"

    loved the story as a whole, all four together. I didn't like the performance as much in this one as in the other three, but still pretty good. I liked the first three the most, but this was still good and gave a little more closure.

    "sadly, not as good"

    I absolutely loved the first three books in the series to a point where I just couldn't put it down! Extras was just not a book that kept my interest and it was like a chore to read.
    I do want to thank Scott Westerfeld for the beautiful adventure I found in the other three!

    "Not as good as the others in series"

    I was really excited to find a 4th book in the series, but I don't think it lived up to the others. I was often bored and not able to really get a good picture of the scene. It was ok to read but nothing special.

    "Great read :)"

    I love this series, especially because of the ethical dilemmas that really make you think about what societies need to become better.

    "Not as good as the first three"

    This book began with a seemingly irrelevant character three years after the last book which threw me off a bit. I still enjoyed the story but it still didn't fit as well as the first three.

    "Good, but not great ending!"

    I loved the first 3 books in this series and expected the last book to continue on with the story line and characters from all 3 previous books. It takes place in a new city and the characters from the first 3 only play a minimal part in this book. Disappointed but would still love to keep going in this series if they switched back to the original characters. The narrator was also different, not what I expected but she still did a great job.

    "Mostly great"
    What made the experience of listening to Extras the most enjoyable?

    The story itself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The male voices on this reading are torture-making! Why does David sound like a robot?!

    "Good finish"

    I really enjoyed the change in perspective in this book and the interesting way Aya's society deals with the economy. We still get to follow Tally and the cutters to a satisfying ending. The narrator was pretty good, but seemed to strain on the lower voices.
