book 4

I love distopia! This was a great book. I'm really glad Westerfield didn't make Aya and Tally identical, but still had similarities. I usually can expect the end of a book, and a few unexpected twist were thrown my way. Some thing I enjoy in a book. (And I don't often find)

Honestly, this series is my favorite books of all time. I love the suspense, the tech, the way society is described in here! I cannot imagine a more perfect book

An extension of the uglies series. The books before this never really let you embrace the whole being of specials. Cruel, sharp, toxic. Doing good while getting away with " Small things" that uglies never would get away with. This book is told from Ayas p.o.v and COMPLETELY finishes off the series with explaining everything and adding the icy frosting to all the realistic and varying characters.

I didn't really like this last book o of the uglies trilogy, and I think it should have ended at specials.

This book takes place about 3 years after the last book and follows Aya's perspective who is Japan. She is the younger sister of an up-and-coming famous person and the culture of this group is based on popularity, kicking stories (blogging), parties, etc. I was dispointed with the lack of character development in this installment (main and supporting). Felt cheesy.

After finishing the Uglies trilogy, it was time to read the spin off, Extras. After being disappointed with Specials, my standards for this book weren’t too high. However, I thoroughly enjoyed Uglies so I decided to give this a chance. I have to admit, it was pretty good I loved the plot, morals, new characters and new setting. It was an excellent read that left me satisfied. The book takes place a few years after Specials and revolves around a Japanese society with the main character Aya Fuse (love that name). Now the rules are more loose and you don’t have to be 16 to be pretty, you can get any surgery you like. However, the whole thing has turned into this whole completion, and it all comes down to who is the most popular. Who is the most famous, or has the juiciest stories, each person has their own rank. Aya Fuse is sitting at the sorry number of 451,369 which is so low, she isn’t even a no body, she’s an extra. However, everything changes when Aya meets a group of girls who do the craziest things but in secret. If she can just kick this one story, she could be in the top 30’s, or maybe even more, which brings her to a world of popularity, fame and danger. Something she can’t quiet handle yet. This book wasn’t too bad. I found the first half interesting, it was refreshing to be in a new environment and I liked Aya, she was unpopular and quiet which reminded me a lot of Tally in the first book. I found that I liked the new characters in this book better than the older ones. I hate to say this, but I really hated Tally in this book. She was extremely selfish and just downright rude. I get that she is the only special left but that doesn’t give her an excuse to treat everyone else like garbage. I felt really bad for Shay and unlike Tally, she had all my sympathy. I also found David really one dimensional, it was like he was just agreeing with everything Tally was saying just so she would take him back. But that is enough negatives; this book did have some great morals in it. It is a good piece of literature to show the lines that we make as humans between rich and poor, popular and un-popular and also shows that we give words illustrations. We have created this image of the word pretty, un popular and many more. I found this book fast paced as well as exciting and I liked it more than Specials. I thought the title Extras meant people who do unnecessary stuff and just cause drama but after reading the book I realized there is a much deeper meaning to it. An extra is considered to be someone who has no purpose, and is just something on the sides no one pays attention to, and no one deserves to be that.

It's good, but it can't hold a candle to the first three books.
