The New York Times. Like the other books in the Uglies trilogy, Extras is fun and a very fast read.
I’d like Westwrfeld better if I didn’t expect another book with my favorite Uglies characters at front and center. We have the head alien, the sly girls, and tally all at the party, laughing at how well their stupid lives turned out.
What to start on next, hmmm. I wanted to like the last half, really, I did. This leads to a discovery of hidden steel cylinders in a mountain westerffeld starts this avalanche of events that inevitably brings in Tally Youngblood and her group of Cutters.
As Aya follows her westedfeld she realizes it’s much bigger than one clique: Westerfeld excels at showing the emotional underpinnings of a fame economy: This page was last edited on 24 Octoberat Okay, I have to admit that, although I love Westerfeld’s writing and consider him a great author, he just can’t write romance.
Lists with This Book. I’m so proud of you, Scott. Works by Scott Westerfeld. Will I be able to read it since I haven’t read the first books? Which, I don’t think Tally has ever been.
I appreciate all the efforts and thoughts authors put into their work, all the sleepless nights and all the blocks they have wrsterfeld contend with so seldom do I dare say I disliked a particular book. Of course, nothing is ever as simple as that I adore Frizz Aya’s love interest though.
He also helps Tally and the “Cutters” with different missions. This was largely due to a entire new cast of characters from the first 3 books wseterfeld a bit of a plot change as well.
Extras is a decent add-on to a trilogy which I didn’t think was really going anywhere. Honestly, the first half before Tally showed up was way better. Not a Scott Westerfeld ending, at least.
So, if you felt underwhelmed by the original trilogy, I still recommend giving this a go because I think that Westerfeld has stepped up his game at long last. After, Frizz tells Aya that he might leave Radical Honesty, deciding he didn’t need the group to tell the truth. The story is also utterly original covering very different territory than the rest of extfas series.
I thought Frizz was really sweet, Hiro is a jerk, and Ren is a pretty nice character. I didn’t like the complication of the language barrier when it wasn’t very clear.
She is well known for being a city hoverball champion, as well has a tech-head, and is always seen floating around in her hoverball rig. Extras is not a Tally Youngblood story, but she appears in it. Hiro’s friend who is good with technical things. Although this wasn’t as good as the other books, I really enjoyed it.
In a world where everyone seems to have some kind of website and is trying to be more popular or more famous, it’s fascinating to read about a city where everything literally depends on your reputation.
