Then again, nearly everyone would be dumb and/or annoying to Tally.

i loved Extras the best, and even though a lot of people I know didn't like it until Tally came back, I still absolutely loved it. I loved the concept of it (the un-humans' plans to move in to space) and i loved reading about what happens after the mind-rain. If there was a fifth one, i'd definately read it.

I almost enjoy Extras the most sometimes because it's the happiest. For nearly all of the other books, Tally is unhappy and stressed. That being said, Uglies/Pretties/Specials discuss some really important and thought-provoking issues. Part of what makes the Uglies series what it is is all the angst, right? :)

So I think that they are all awesome. Extras is just really different from the other three.

I like specials the best, because it paints the best portrait of Dr.Cable. This is the first time Tally and Dr.C face off on a level playing feild, and you can really see what she is trying to do in all it's glory, with a living example in Tally.

I liked Extras, but had two major problems with it:
One: Dr. Cable is not in it! Where is Dr. C? The Uglies world cannot be complete without her... she's the best character and I wanted to find out what happened to her! (I'm still hoping she'll make Moggle a special in Cakes)
Two: Am I the only one who thinks Tally was a creep in Extras? She was so... different from the Tally in Uglies... but maybe tht's just because we weren't in her head this time. Still, she seemed kind of annoying in Extras.
That being said, I also loved Extras because:
One: Moggle is introduced! Yay Moggle! Go hovercams! (Because the robot who takes pics of people and doesn't talk is so much better than the actual protag, right?)
Two: Toshi Banana appears! Yay again! :D
Oh, and also it was really well written. And it involved Shay and Fausto.
You aren't the only one! I thought Tally was kinda rude and not the same and yea

I know! Tally just basically says, "You're stupid go away, I'm saving the world, I'm better than everyone else."

Yeah, well, we weren't in Tally's head, so we don't know how or what she was thinking. And Aya was kind of dumb. I say Specials is the beat cause it has awesome technology,  Shay isn't such a creeper, and Dr. Cable and Tally face off!

i completely understand why you might think extras is the best, but i dont. it was too different, and really random. sometimes that could be a good thing, but i think that with the uglies series it would have been better to leave it a trilogy and not write extras, just have everyone imagine what comes next on there own. It's not that a dont like extras, because i totaly do. its a great book. it just doesnt fit with the uglies series, because Specials had already done a great job of wrapping it up.

Yeah, especially with Tally's manifesto at the end!
