Title: Should there be another book?
Post by: BigBang_Obsessed19 on June 17, 2010, 10:00:07 AM
ok I just finished reading Extra's a couple days ago and it just seems/feel like that there should be another book after it because of how it ended

"Come on, it's almost midnight. Let's go watch them cut the cake." < that's it...nothing else...

most of the books I've read...don't end like there is going to be another book after it...it like gives false hope for another book wondering what happened after the fact

...i don't know....I know I have to like explain this out and give info to support my side but it just honestly feels like this series is incomplete because of that last sentence in the book

I get what your saying.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on June 18, 2010, 07:48:00 AM
Well, all the books ended that way.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: shadley on June 18, 2010, 09:05:24 AM
Totally get what your saying.  I remember Scott said all the books the last word was the title of the next book, and that he would have to name the next book if their is one should be Cakes.lol. I actually started a thread about maybe there should be a collection of short stories or a prequel about the creation of the Smoke. If you want to check it out its called Uglies Novella.

C.A.K.E.S. = Children And Kids Extra Stories ?

Fanfiction but huge and published.

Wow, I must look that fanfic up. ???

I don't think there should be another book. All the questions are tied up now, so anything else would probably feel labored. Better to go out when you're on top, right?
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: shadley on June 19, 2010, 10:18:34 AM
Yes, I do agree there shouldn't  be a continuation, but I do think he could do a prequel or a book of short stories.

i don't mean there is a fic about it, but we should do one and get it published.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?

Oh gotcha. I wanna look it up just to see if  it is a fan fic. ;D
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Mara-la on June 20, 2010, 05:05:26 AM
doubting it. i'm on fanfiction pretty much everyday and i scan for new and interesting fics.
there's one called "something more than special" and it has some interesting concepts, but last time i checked, it hasn't been updated for a while.

Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Hello_Sailor on June 20, 2010, 12:42:32 PM
A lot of the time, fanfiction completely changes the characters and makes impossible scenarios. Some are okay, though.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: BeautifullyUgly on June 20, 2010, 05:05:54 PM
I think there should be a prequel of sorts- one with a Rusty as the main character.

I would really love to see how one would have survived and helped create one of the cities. 



Or or or, a parallel book describing everything from the point of view outside of the main characters of the Uglies series. Like some random person who happened to see the hot air balloon and didn't know wtf was going on and drew his/her own conclusions about it.

Anyone else up for this?
Title: Re: Should there be another book?

Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: shadley on June 22, 2010, 10:00:48 AM
No way I'm against bracing. about half of my class had braces, they all started getting them off before this year ended, can you say creepy. All their teeth look the same, it reminded me way too much of Pretties, and how Scott got the idea for Uglies. I'm taking a stand, and my teeth are pretty much perfect except for the gap. I don't really care that much about the gap, I like being different. :D
Title: Re: Should there be another book?

A collection of cool short stories about Dr. Cable, Shay before Tally and After/during her cutting, And how Maddy and Az escaped and formed Smoke.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Beth-la on August 15, 2010, 11:19:23 AM
Yeah, that would make for an interesting book.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Jess-la(: on August 15, 2010, 07:38:07 PM
oh yeah i wanna know more about Dr Cable
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: shadley on August 16, 2010, 12:00:00 PM
So he can't really continue the story but he can enrichen it with more background
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Hello_Sailor on August 17, 2010, 01:14:26 AM
That would work. Or maybe a prequel or something.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?

More about the Smoke. You really don't learn enough.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: tridecagirl on August 18, 2010, 08:40:20 AM
Think - Specials were made Specials for being tricky. Most of the Cutters were Smokies. So what did Dr. Cable do to become head of SC? And did she want to escape?

Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Hello_Sailor on August 20, 2010, 01:48:41 AM
Maybe she briefly dated Az and when he left her for Maddy and started the Smoke, she went psychotic!
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Maze-la on August 22, 2010, 10:21:20 AM
and then she started crushing on Mr.Dr.Cable, who died right after they got married. then her crankyness level went Whhhoooooppppp.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Raych on August 22, 2010, 02:22:55 PM
If there was to be another book, I think perhaps it should be from someone elses perspective, like BeautifullyUgly said, like, maybe from David's or Zane's... or maybe even Andrew Simpson Smith's....okay, maybe not his, but still, I think she has a good point.  If it was from David's, you could tell how he really felt about Shay, if there even was a relationship between them, etc. Because I always wondered about that.   And if from Zane's, you know, you could see all what he went through because of Dr. C and the guilt like what Tally went through.... but then I guess that could be too much like a repeat.  So, probably David's point of view.  I half expected Extras to end like it did, but it does leave you thinking there could be another one.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: shadley on August 24, 2010, 12:32:51 PM
I just got a great idea. A whole story from different perspectives through Pings! Or the story from the city databases perspective!LOL(last one was a joke but it could work) ::)
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Raych on August 24, 2010, 01:27:23 PM
How could they do that? The pings were just messages friends sent to each other-- I mean IF they did that you would only get like...half page chapters    :D

Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: shadley on August 25, 2010, 07:46:09 AM
What I'm saying is it could be a whole bunch of pings throughout the series to make one book or maybe just a novella. I wonder who Dr. Cable pings?
Title: Re: Should there be another book?

Title: Re: Should there be another book?

Who is Mr. Dr. Cable? Was she married? since she goes by Dr. we have know idea.
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on August 25, 2010, 07:54:50 AM
I doubt it. But what if she had kids? Was Shay her daughter? is that why we never learned Shay's last name? I just remembered some line she said sometime about how they had to "get their children back" from the Smoke, and that gave me the idea...
Title: Re: Should there be another book?
Post by: Beth-la on August 25, 2010, 07:55:09 AM
Hmm...maybe she's having an affair?Hahaha...I doubt it. I doubt she ever even dated. She was too busy creating a super-human society.

When she said that, that's what I first thought. Then, remember in Specials how she referred to her Specials as her children or something along those lines? Well, if Cable had of caught the Smokies, she probably would have turned them into Specials, because she only makes tricky uglies specials. So she could have been referring to the Smokies as future Specials, and the specials were her ''children''. I don't know, that's what I think.

I never was that big of a fan myself either. I saw like one of the movies, but that's it. I know like the whole plot though cause one of my old  friends was a big Star Wars junkie, and I had to put up with it. I was like torture. Then I had a Twilight obsessed friend, and she got so annoying that I just starting ignoring her. Sigh.....why can't any of my friends be Uglies-obsessed?  :)

Oh, wait, wait, forget star wars, I had a great thought today while i was doing dishes!  What if Andrew Simpson Smith's dad was Dr.C's husband, and she got pissed at him one day and so she banished him to this expeiramental reservation that he couldn't leave, and  Shay was her's and Andrew's dad's kid, but then when Dr.C stuck him there, he hooked up with someone else and had Andrew!  So Shay and Andrew are like half brother and sister!  LOL  ;D :D
