I wasn't sure I was ready for more of this futuristic
world yet after some of my frustrations with that last one, but I
really enjoyed reading Extras. The book keeps you guessing until the very end - and gives you a lot to think about along the way!



I found myself slightly disoriented at first, expecting to be in
America still, but it was actually set in Japan. It was a fun change of
scenery and slight change in culture.



The romance wasn't as good as in some of the earlier Uglies books,
but I liked that there weren't any "feel like throwing the book across
the room" moments. You're okay getting attached to characters in this
one. :) It's also nice seeing some of the characters from Specials
again. Aya's story brings to mind many of the things we take for
granted in our modern society, but with an exaggerated and futuristic
(though maybe not so far off?) twist. How do we define our existence?
Do we feel like if it's not recorded/seen by others, our life doesn't
matter? I thought a lot about facebook, youtube, cameras, blogs, cell
phones, texting, IM, and things like red carpet parties and fame.



Great book.
