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. Download and start listening now!

    " This book had an excellent twist to the series that I really enjoyed. Can't say too much though, otherwise I'll spill too many beans "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren Clark | 2/5/2014

    " LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!! soooooooo sad that it is over!!!!!! Recomend this series to everyone!!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amelia | 1/27/2014

    " This book, Extras by Scott Westerfeld, is the forth book in the series. To fully understand this book you do not have to read the first three, I how ever did. In the first three books are mostly following a girl named Tally. In this book, the story is about a younger girl, Aya, about three years later. This book is an exciting adventure story and it was very captivating. This book takes place many years from now and includes many fictional undertones. From the time I picked it up, to the time I finished, I did not want to put it down. It was a very good book and I recommend it to everyone. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Twigg | 1/24/2014

    " Got about 20 pages in and had to stop. Should have left it a trilogy. "

    " It is different, I don't like how tally is so differnt, but it was Greta and a fast going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steff | 1/19/2014

    " This was one of my favorite books in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deejane | 1/18/2014

    " Once again, a trilogy with an extra book. Didn't like the introduction of a new main character within the same series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucila | 1/7/2014

    " to much technology going on, sometimes it was even hard to imagine with such a great explanation from the author, fast flying trains in between mountains... everything measured by popularity..followers, much like twitter. I liked it but not as much as uglies or pretties "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda Maes | 1/5/2014

    " Book was meant for fans, lost its meaning. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cadey Carney | 12/16/2013

    " It was okay, i think it was pointless though "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Ahrens | 12/15/2013

    " Eh...I didn't like this one near as much as the first 3. It felt like a completely different book. It was ok, and I stayed interested enough to finish it but didn't love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jadah | 11/22/2013

    " I KNOW CALL MYSELF, Jadah Youngblood... THIS IS MY FAVORITE SERIES!, plus this additional book in the series was... more than Bubbly-making! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jazmine Williams | 11/15/2013

    " Thought it wasnt going to be as good as the others at first by was pleasantly surprised by how much i liked it when i finished it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 11/14/2013

    " Adding a fourth book to an already-complete trilogy is not usually a great idea. Something gets lost along the way and this book felt forced and weak. Stick to the original 3. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vanessa E. Leigh | 11/11/2013

    " series was a waste of time reading "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candy | 7/7/2013

    " I didnt like how Tally wasnt included til the end because i got used to Tallys personality and thoughts. I got used to it though and was a good book to read c: "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 7/2/2013

    " 2 1/2 stars maybe? My least favorite in the series by far. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyzzibug ~Still Breathing~ | 6/12/2013

    " The story didn't pull me into it like the previous ones. It seemed to be anti-climatic to me. THe main character just rubbed me the wrong way. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shanna Fullmer | 5/28/2013

    " disliked "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonari | 3/24/2013

    " I read the whole series and I loved it all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 2/24/2013

    " It wasn't my favorite of the series, but I still really like it. It kept me guessing what was going to happen next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amberlee Sweat | 2/10/2013

    " Yeah.... Didnt like these books as much as I originally hoped. Same plot in each of them and the last book was just terrible. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Canuck | 9/12/2012

    " I read this. Physically my eyes moved over the words. And that's it. I didn't like it. Maybe I would like it more if there was another book after this set in another city...or something...I don't know what but something is lacking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 4/30/2012

    " I wasn't a massive fan of how everything was rounded up in a few pages. Reminded me a lot of Breaking Dawn in that respect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Justiniano | 4/19/2012

    " Very good series. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandi | 3/28/2012

    " This book put me to sleep every night. It was NOT like the first 3 and I was disappointed. It was OK but just took WAY too long to get to the point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christian | 11/27/2011

    " I have about the inverse impression than the rest of the reviews: the first book was so-so; the rest of the series was much better. Much more captivating and sense-making, so to speak. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan | 5/23/2011

    " Meandering, meandering, meandering. And repetitive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 5/18/2011

    " I was actually liking this book better than the regular trilogy, until the ending sort of fizzled out. The economy that was built was pretty interesting and it was something I could see really happening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 5/17/2011

    " harder to get into because starts out with a whole different set of characters. They meet up with Tally about half way anf then the excitment begins "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 5/15/2011

    " I liked the book but it was annoying that the same characters weren't in the book from the start. It felt like this wasn't really part of the series. Still an interesting story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 5/12/2011

    " First of all u cnt jst switch up characters too wierd ohh well it wasntbad but it wasnt good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 5/12/2011

    " It was interesting that this book was told from a different character, but it's still a good book that keeps you guessing like all the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bianca | 5/8/2011

    " It took me a while to come across the fourth book completing the saga...I wished for more to come from it though. Still action packed, and you get sucked into this imaginative world. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brittneyvlam | 5/4/2011

    " after reading the first three books i began to dislike this series but i didnt want to stop reading it. i had to finish! so i sat down and read this book in about two hours and honestly wanted to burn the book and do trible dance around the fire. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimmarie | 5/4/2011

    " Didn't really see the point of extending a trilogy, usually if an author adds another it is because they left something undone... if Tally's relationships were expanded then i could see a fourth one, but this was mostly a new cast of chacters and i just didn't feel interested in them
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 5/2/2011

    " I just wish this book was from Tally's point of view and not the other girl's. It would have been better that way. "
