Full disclosure: I haven't read the three preceding books in the series. The good thing, though, is that this is a sequel to the other books, that (for the most part) follows an entirely different group of characters. This book doesn't require a lot of knowledge of the other books or characters to be able to follow what's happening.
That being said, there's not really much exciting or remarkable about this story. There's a short chase sequence, some weird alien-like beings, and a whole lot of strange new technology, but no big climactic fight scene.

i thought it was good. i liked how they thought the extras were world killers and you thought that too, but its not true. i wish the author had kept tally in it more, though

You know I always wonder what had happen after the battle of San Diego and what happened to the Cutters AND to Tally-wa . and know I know .
It had a fast pace and if you listen to music while reading the book it makes it even more EPIC
I recommend listening to "Fell Invincible " by Skillet . It make even beter


Extras by Scott Westerfeld is the final book of the Uglies series. As with many series, I find that the quality of the book deteriorates with each new book. In my opinion, Westerfeld should have ended with the third book, making a fantastic trilogy. The addition of this fourth book seems somewhat random. Instead of being centered around Tally, this book moves to a different part of the world and focuses on a girl named Aya. Instead of being judged by beauty, Aya’s society judges people on popularity. People try everything in their capability in order to be noticed. Aya happens to be pretty much on the bottom of their popularity rank. Throughout the book, Aya’s ranking changes drastically due to various reasons. The overall plot was not as intriguing as the previous books, and the language used in this book was annoyingly simple. I would only recommend this book to readers who absolutely love the Uglies series and want to spend a little more time in that dystopian society, but I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone else.

I am not quite sure how to feel about this book...
It was set in a different time after Tally in the last 3 books with a different protaganist, Aya.

So this was a book written in 2007, and it had a lot of 2007 pop culture references and that kinda just weired me out. It was different. But this book just kinda dragged on and on.

This was a MEH book. If you want to read it after Specials, Go ahead, but it doesn't add too much onto the books.

The first three books of this series were in chronological order of events happening to the same protagonist in the same main setting. However this book, the fourth and last in the series, focuses on a different protagonist in a different setting at a much later time from when the third book left off. Even though I loved this book and the story line, it is quite different from what the first three books come to have the reader expect. This series is almost like a trilogy with an extra book added on to the end. I still recommend the series and this book highly.

I loved this book. It is so much better than the first one, second one and the third books by Scott Westerfeld. Sooooooo awesome to read the Fourth book. :)

After three books, I had really gotten to know Tally, Shay and David. I thought it would be a good change to have a new main character, which happened to be Aya. But halfway through the book, when Tally and Aya met, I started to realize how annoying she is. Also, I didn't like how Aya felt about Tally, like I said, after three books I'd really become attached. Tally had been through so much, and Aya felt so bad for herself not having enough fame and popularity. Overall, the first three books were so much better, as well as the characters.

I loved all the other 3 books from the series. The books are distopian, which is a genre I don't usually read. To be honest, I absolutely loved them! Extras though was my favorite of the 4. It was nice to have another female character, besides Tally. Aya had a very different personality and perspective then Tally, which created suspense and conflict between the two characters! Overall it was a great read, and I rate it 5 stars!

With a new lead character and a new location, I didn't think I would enjoy this book, but I have to admit, it was my favorite from the series! Now I'm just wishing for a book that explains what happened when characters' idea was accomplished.
