I soppose that you have already read all the other Uglies books. The Tally we know and love is seen by her own point of view on the Uglies trilogy; she has her doubts, her way of thinking and acting, and we understand her because she always “shares” with us her thoughts.
In Extras, we know her as she seems to be to everybode else: It is good to see that she is still important on this new world that she helped to build. She is loved, she is feared, and she is respected by her actions. It is a perfec ending to one of the best series that I’ve read so far.

It’s marketed as a book about the trendy pretty people versus ugly geeks, except this is a political tale about how those in power keep power, and what a rebellion might look like.
Pretty is the tool used to keep people complacent and out of the way of the politically elite. Ugliness is for youngsters still in the ligro of puberty and becomes the badge of pride for the scarce political dissidents. The main character is left in a compromising situation by an impulsive rebel, forcing her into a position of betrayal.
Somehow she never has the self respect to get angry at her reckless friend and instead desperately and constantly is trying to fix this supposed betrayal she was forced into. Basically the scotf character Tally is a Bella like heroine, forever putting someone else’s needs above her in own.
The book is supposed to be about her discovery that there are more important things in the world than being pretty. Apparently like having no sense of self worth and being constantly self sacrificing and allowing well meaning people to continually scape goat her.
This isn’t a book I would want my nieces reading without a discussion of how important it is to set healthy boundaries, and how those boundaries enhance trust and friendship.
Sooner or later in a realistic world, Tally and Shay’s friendship is likely to be awash with bitterness and distrust. While this book does set up some worthwhile thinking about our popular culture and the distraction of pop culture from political power, Tally is not in this book a good role model for young girls, although she has the potential, it doesn’t seem like the author is inclined to take her in that direction.
Kind westerfekd a waste of a great female character. It was really hard for me to finish this book.
I don’t ever want to read this book again, although the next in the series does look more interesting, I wouldn’t buy it without making sure reading it wouldn’t be an act of discipline.
Check this out on nook in Barnes and noble or borrow it from the library before you buy it. It’s not adding value to my library, even at two dollars it was a frustrating waste of what could have been an awesome strong female character. I adore the Uglies series! I first read it in middle school twelve years ago, and I still re-read the series now as an adult in my mid-twenties. I did purchase the Kindle edition, which was formatted well enough, but I really prefer the feel of real paper.
In the end, I bought the newest edition that combines and Uglies and Pretties together, as it saved me a couple dollars westerfele this format.
As for the book itself, I enjoy the depth the protagonist, Tally, brings to a dystopian world, as well as the creative language used xetras bright yet not-too-verbose detail. Tally well-represents what it is to be a teenager, and I appreciate the depth even the supporting characters bring.
Not to mention I’ve been dying for a hoverboard ever since! I recommended this series to teens and young adults when I worked at a bookstore as well, and most reported to me that they thoroughly enjoyed this series.
I was not a big fan of this book. I read through the Uglies “trilogy” a few times and decided that I may as well give the fourth book a shot. Westsrfeld followed Tally and her friends throughout the series, I hated jumping sctot a totally new group of people, a completely new country even.
The story seemed pretty lame considering all that happened in Tally’s city. I mean, I felt like Westerfels was following a group of rank hungry teenagers instead of the strong Tally Youngblood.
Also, I don’t think it was necessary to put the people in a different country with a language barrier without introducing it at the beginning. Halfway through, we were all of a sudden talking about “English being rusty” and it took exrras a moment to figure out that they were westerfele Asia since it hadn’t been mentioned before then. It should have stayed a trilogy, although I did end up enjoying the book more when Tally and the other Specials came back with their attitudes and sarcasm.
As members of a society that flourishes with different types of people, it’s hard to imagine a world where everyone is “pretty”. To us, it’s an opinion, our different features are appealing or unappealing depending on who is looking.
But to Tally and her society, it’s a way of life.
It’s matter of fact that everyone becomes pretty at the age of That is, until she meets Shay, who changes her outlook on things. Shay tells her about an outside community, where no one turns pretty.
Once Tally reaches that outside community, the Smoke, she realizes there’s much more to life than just being pretty.
Westerfield, in this dystopian novel, does a great job at informing readers that this may be what our world turns out to be if we continue to focus on the way we look on the outside. With stunning imagery, agonizing suspense, and relatable characters, Westerfield creates am undeniable page turning novel that no one can put down. And even when the book is back on its bookshelf collecting dust, the weaterfeld of the story is carried with readers wherever their next adventure takes them.
