Er..... okay.... so...............

I was making these banners as I was reading along in the books.  I finished reading Specials a couple days ago and I can't believe how it ended.  Please don't everyone hate me for saying this but I thought the third book was awful.  What a huge disappointment after such a great build up from the first two books.  Tally basically becomes some superhero tree hugger?  That just seems so random.  Did any one else feel this way?  I have Extras sitting on my nightstand but I don't want to read it because I'm afraid this storyline will go from bad to worse.   :-\

Lynn..i somewhat feel the way you do..i was disappointed in the ending...for reasons becasue it doesnt sound ......Big enough? Idk...it leaves the gap open too big for imagination....there was no BAM...to make you cry or make you smile real big..it was kind of.... its done..they are going to keep regulating things..and so on..i havnt read Extras because i dont want my outlook to change on the other books..i dont know if ill like the new characters so much because it isnt Tally..but Scott did it that way and a lot of people like it.....I still love Specials A LOT... it is an amazing book....its just the way it ends can be a bit...er...ya know...i may read extras..im just worried.....

Haha, glad I'm not the only one.   :)

I think I might take a break from this series and read Shiver next.  That is also sitting on my nightstand waiting to be read.

I thought Extras was kind of... idk.... soft? Random? It was good, but it wasn't as dramatic as the back claims.

Okay in the Stay Bubbly one, Zane in front, blonde and brunette on the side are Shay and Tally.
The others, well... Idk.

Extras was kinda a fail. I was going through fanfiction, and most of them say "post-specials. if extras never happened", which is, somewhat, reasonable.

I like extras, but it was weird to read. Since tally wasn't the main character it was weird not to know what was going on in her head, and it ended very abruptly, but with that said it was a pretty good book.

I didn't like the shifted perspective. I loved the books in Tally's perspective, and even the third book was better than the fourth simply because it was in Tally's view.

You know what would be cool? A re-write of the series in another characters perspective, like Shay, or David.

Actually, the plotline of Extras was good, but next to the other three it was fail.

Yeah, I thought it was..... soft in compasison to the others. The others were, like, rebelling againsed the authority, changing and rediscovering yourself, learning secrets, and then Extras was, like, random girl, random world, aliens...???
