Title: Should there be a 5th book to the Uglies Series?
Post by: bpd18 on June 30, 2011, 01:59:02 AM
I think there should be just cuz extras didnt really explain how tallys story ended....it was more about aya than tally or any of the original characters from the first three books. I really want to see Tally be faced with a problem that makes her go back to pretty town and diego, and face Dr.Cable. but idk  i still think there should be one more book about what tallys does after going to ayas city...

I wasn't a fan of Extras really - I preferred the original three. Personally I think he's at the point of diminishing returns with the Uglies series.

It'd be called 'Cakes' right? xD

But if Tally was to face Dr. Cable...she wouldn't have much to face...Cable isn't Special anymore, so what would Tally have to do to overcome un-special Cable?  :-\

I like the original three too, Extras was okay...

As much as I'd love for there to be a 5th book, what is there left to say? What would it be about? As far as I can tell, it seems like everything's been established as far as it's gonna be at this point.

i think scott a new series that would be based on the uglies series with Aya as the main caracter and leave the original in its own trilagy.. and make extras a whole other series... cause i think more people perfer the original three togeither.. maybe following aya's story know would be a little different than tally's.. its just a thought

I didn't like Aya much. ... she was so self absorbed all the time. Of course, so was Tally....
I prefer the MCs in his other series better.

Yeah the first 3 were the best! Scott posted a thing on a meet up page saying he was working on the Croy Project...I'm not sure if its a book or what but it has something to do with the Uglies series

Yayayayayaya it totally does. He says he always finishes off wight EVERY characters story and you know how Crou kinda disappeared?....well he did that on purpose and you get to find it where David's scar comes from!!!! He told everyone that on the q&a he posted on his log from the meet up thread.

Awesome! About all of their stories. I totally agree with all you guys, the first three were really good and Aya should have been another series. I dont thin he should write another whole book though because in Specials he kind of wrapped up Tally's story and then hes going to unwrap it? Idk... But it would be awesome

If a fifth book were to be made a new antagonist and antagonist story would be required, as is in any book. since Westerfeld has already exhausted two storylines and antagonists it would be difficult

The Croy Project was the manga, telling the story from Shay's view point.

And if he were going to write a 5th book, I think it would be cool to set it on the space station mentioned in Extras. Not sure what he'd call it though.

Totally. Aya should have like her own series. I only have read half of extras though. It is so awesome. These are the first books i have ever really liked. LOVED. Scott if you see this, you are the BEST author. Plz make a new series with Aya. PLEASE.

i dont think there should be another book because the manga is basically his continuation of the uglies series

I thought the ending was good in specials, extras was a nice book to give fans a glimpse into how Tally's actions changed her world, I think even though I would love to read another book in the series I think it would not be as good as the previous ones, I don't think it is needed.

No... it would have to be called "Cakes" and that just kills the mood. I wasn't a big fan of Extras. I like Tally :D Tally is just so much more mature than Aya. Once you spend 240,000 words inside someone's head, they kind of grow on you.

NO NO NO NO NO
THERE SHOULD NOT BE. IF YOU TALK ABOUT SOMETHING TOO MUCH IT JUST ISN'T AS GREAT ITS LIKE HOW SOME BOOKS ARE GOOD AND THEN IF YOU HAVE TO READ THEM FOR SCHOOL THEY STINK BECAUSE THE TEACHERS TALK TOO MUCH ABOUT THINGS AND OVERANALYZE IT AND I DON'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN TO TALLY-WA BECAUSE SHE DOESNT DESERVE THAT AND THE SERIES IS BEST LEFT WITH SOME MYSTERY OTHERWISE IT WOULD JUST BE LIKE ANY OTHER BOOK AND JUST NO.

I think most of us agree the first 3 were better than the fourth. It's because when you spend 240,000 words inside someone's head, they kind of grow on you. Plus Aya and Tally are just way different.
