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.

Narrator needs work, but story got better and better

The story was set 3 years ahead of Specials and a different character’s perspective. Great story development. A little slow at times. Narrator didn’t emphasize scenes correctly. Hard to picture a tense, energetic moment in the story when the narrator is talking in a monotone voice. I also think this story was supposed to be in a Japanese accent which was totally missing.

A good addition

I love that he wrote a fourth book, and the fact that it starts off in another city was great. It shows that Diego wasn’t the only city that was different from Tally’s city. It was a solid ending.

Ending felt forced

I loved this series and got though all the books so quickly so I couldn’t wait to read this one. The story took a bit to get into but I ended up enjoying the twist. However the ending felt very forced like the author forgot they needed to introduce tally and it felt forced for the last few chapters

Red headed stepchild

The performance was awful. This voice was not made for multiple voices. The story was loosely based on the original story and very difficult to follow at times. If you liked the trilogy, stay away from this title.

Not As Good As The Previous Three...

I took a break in the middle of this book because it was hard to get into it. I did end up finishing it simply because I wanted to see how it ended. I struggled with the main character's (Aya's) obsession with fame; I found her shallow and irritating. The best part of the book was near the end when Tally, Shea and David returned. I especially liked how Tally put Aya in her place! The plot was strange and didn't intrigue me as much as the plots of the other books about Tally. In the end it was a decent read but I wouldn't recommend this one. I think the series would have ended better with "Specials" and not adding on an extra story called "Extras"!

Why change narrators?! So disappointed.

I love this series, but WHY would you change the narrator on the fourth book?! I’m not sure if the new narrator is terrible or if I’m just upset that it’s a different voice than the first three books. Either way, it’s distracting me from the story. Gahhh, I just can’t get over that enough to even say anything about the story.

Good book, iffy narration

This narrator was hard to listen to. The way she does make voices made ALL the male characters sound like morons. Still a good book.
