about

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.
Scott Westerfeld‘s other teen books include the Midnighters series, Peeps, So Yesterday, and The Last Days. He divides his summers between Sydney, Australia, and New York City.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fun read! I thought the conclusion was okay, although overall it's a fun series to read. More enjoyable for teens I think.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh I couldn't really get into it. I love Uglies, Pretties & Specials, but I can't really get into this book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great series but it should have ended at 3 I loved this series, the books were great and I started reading them as a school project but borrowed the books from the library just so that I could finish the series. When I first found out about this book, I was extremely excited but after a couple chapters I realized that I preferred it ending at book 3 and that this last book was just a letdown, didn't even finish it. I do appreciate the author for giving another book a shot and giving us the option to see what happened next.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still good! I probably would give this book 4 or 5 stars if it didnt stand next to its superior predecessors (Uglies and Pretties). It is a great read, and it is great to see more of this universe, but I didnt care as much about the new cast of characters as I did Tally and Shay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting! Not overly linked with the other books. You DO meet Tally, Shay and David but they aren't central characters. Very interesting look at the aftermath of Specials in a different culture.
