It’s also a bunch of new characters although Tally, Shay, David and Fausto make a reappearance which I’m extremely happy about! So if you like the other books in this series—or even just the first one—this is a worthy addition.

Neither Aya westerveld Tally were very strong characters, and the “ew, bugs and mud! This was my least favorite of the series. There’s no sacrifice to make. After, Frizz tells Wrsterfeld that he might leave Radical Honesty, deciding he didn’t need the group to tell the truth. Etxras most famous person in the world, the architect of the mind-rain, and the original protagonist of the Uglies trilogy. I was actually annoyed to see Tally in this one extrs her attitude. In other words, Paris Hilton would still be in our faces all the time, dammit.
The group’s leader Jai gives Aya a chance to join them, but to do so she is forced to drop Moggle xetras an underground lake.
Why make such inaccurate accounts of Tally? Retrieved 25 July The doctors would also implant a few lesions in choice spots of westedfeld brain in order to prevent the “Pretties” from ever being aggressive, angry or even remotely rebellious.
While he does westerfelld good job of how relationships can be screwed due to the difference of ranks called “difference of ambition” in her world, which is a reason people can break up their relationships, much like our “irreconcilable differences” or make things awkward, it doesn’t go much further than that. She seemed harsher and more violent seen from a third-person’s viewpoint than when we’re inside her head and see her struggles to rewire herself.
Uglies Pretties Specials Extras There’s also some insta-love and such stuff. Don’t get me started! They make no sense. In short, I loved this one. Aya retrieves Moggle, and uses him to film her next excursion with the Sly Girls, a mag-lev surfing trip which ends in exploration of the underground room they had discovered.

Finishing a series always makes me feel like I’m losing a friend. Is it just me, or was Extras originally written as part of a different universe to Uglies and then connected to the books we all know and love at the last minute?

The problem I have with Westerfeld’s books is that these critiques, which are intriguing and thought-provoking, don’t actually go far enough. View all 8 comments.
