[ Pdf Extras Í young-adult-romance PDF ] by Scott Westerfeld ↠´ Like the other books in the Uglies trilogy, Extras is fun and a very fast read I read this book in about 2 and 1 2 hours, pretty much non stop However, Extras raised the same prickly issues for me that the other books in the series did My years as a student steeped in cultural studies and gender theory make it pretty much impossible for me to read works of popular fiction without subjecting them to critical analysis, and Westerfeld s books certainly lend themselves to this sort of critique Especially if you are like me Like most dystopian science fiction, Westerfeld s books cast a critical eye on disturbing aspects of our present day society obsession with looks, fame, etc by taking those aspects to extremes and weaving them into the very fabric of the future society In Uglies Pretties, everyone is cu Honestly, this book was kind of a disappointment I liked how it was all accumulated around the Japanese society, but other than that, I was expecting muchof this book In my opinion, Aya is a very whiny, self absorbed suck up I don t like the way Scott Westerfeld portrays Tally in this either because he renders her as a know it all b word, to say the least Which, I don t think Tally has ever been Her character is not put to justice in this book.
I really struggled to finish this book, and I thought it was significantly worse than the others in the series A lot of the dialogue was agonizingly stilted The characters actually said things like Not good and uh, oh to react to approaching falling objects and other imminent bumps on the head AAAAAARGH Those lines drive me crazy enough in movies I was horrified to find them in a book At one point, characters from two different countries meet and have some communication difficulties After a few pages, the author seems to forget about the language barrier and the characters converse naturally, as if they re all speaking the same language Then, toward the end, things get awkward again SLOPPY Sloppy writing Ugh Finally done.
This is how this book made me feel because it was such a disappointment and maybe a bit of this because it was so boring and also becausewell, it fucking sucked I ve noticed that I ve been rating these Uglies books in a pattern Uglies 5 StarsPretties 4 StarsSpecials 3 StarsExtras 2 StarsToo bad they don t have a fifth one If that had sucked as bad as this one, I would have loved to give that a one star, then the pattern would be complete.

I can t believe that I am saying this, but I didn t really like Tally in this book Once, she came on the scene, I thought the writing became very sloppy The whole second half of the story was flat for me.
Westerfeld could have left in me in Aya Fuse s city and in her apartment in Shuffle Mansion with Moggle and I would have been muchsatisfied.
I wish that the authors of popular series, would take a littlethought about their story lines before they quickly release their sequels None of the books that came after Uglies was as well thought out and captivating.
