    i am working on reading the third book now i am really into it and wish i had more time to read, but i am curious about where you got the ideas to come up with the machines and beast in the books.

    Where DOES Scott get his ideas? His books are completely original and I’ve never seen works based off of his stuff either, unlike some authors that have copied off of others and shall remain nameless because they ‘are not worthy to be mentioned in the same comment as Scott Westerfeld’.

    A really cool thing you could do is make a site where you would make your own morphos, like they talked about in the book, so that anyone With a webcam could see what they would look like as a pretty :)

    I really think the uglies could be a good series to turn into movies.

    Scott-la, I have some totally bubbly (or maybe bogus) ideas for a fifth book to the ‘trilogy’ (once you’re done with ALL of Shay’s story, of course) Please e-mail me, I would like to tell you of my ideas. Or if you just got the “Contact Scott Westerfeld” button working, that would be nice. I really think you should write “Cakes”, and want to thank you for the amazing series you have brainwashed my mind with (in a good way).
    P.S. I think that you should put a big page for all the revealing characters so it won’t take an hour to find Zane.

    in love with Zane. totally bubbly / bogus. oh and i think that you should definetly make the uglies series into movies. that would be over the top awesome of course because i am in love with the uglies series. i had just started specials after reading uglies and pretties. email me please ’cause’ im totally bubbly, bogus, and most importantly pretty.

    If you ever do make the Uglies series into a movie, I am BEGGING you to not make them anime, whatever it’s called, and to use real people for the actors. I’m tired of seeing the same people in films. Totally ‘bogus.’ And for the love of your fans, make it better than the ‘Twilight’ garbage movies. I wish there were words to describe how your books have made me feel. Keep up the great work, do not change a thing.

    Much love,
    Elizabeth Christine.

    No, Seriously… You’re a genious! o_o You should realy make the Uglies series into movies it would be so bubbly (x

    I’ve never enjoyed reading mainly because of boring much exhausted topics but with the leviathan series it was the highlight of day when I had free time to read weather it would be at home or in class or in the car. the story was exciting and always left you with a NEED to turn the page and see what is next for Alek or Deryn i was so happy to see the ending of the series when all the mysteries were answered and the two finally “hooked up” but im also so sad to know there’s nothing more to read of the two but anyway im rambling i just wanted to say thank you for giving the world such a wonderful story

    If You make the Uglies Series into movies… PLEASE don’t let tha movie makers cut out important scenes, and I agree with one of the previous comments… Don’t let the movies be made like Twilight. Twilight sucks! Edward can Go get stabbed with a wooden stake… And Jacob can go fall off of a cliff. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE,PLEASE…Don’t let then ruin your stories… It doesn’t matter if it’s anime, cartoon, real life, don’t let them taint PERFECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I first heard of the Leviathan series two years ago, and was finally able to discover where a book was being held now. I’ve gotten my father hooked on the series and now he’s bothering me to hurry up and finish the third book. I read some of the comments with people wanting you to make movies out of your books, but I disagree. Most books that I have read and have had movies made of them ended up horrible, but if it is what you choose I will certainly watch.

    What is wrong with you people? Scott can not just decide to ” make the books a movie” that’s not how it works. Also, you have some book ideas for him? Really? I think he is fully capable to come up with his own ideas. Why don’t you just write your own books weirdos.

    My heart literally fell to pieces when Alek just threw away what he shouldve had. I mean, he was supposed to inherit such stinkin wealth! But I feel so happy for him and Deryn. I just wish he didn’t have to throw away so honor he was born with :(

    I love it anyway. Thank U so much Mr. Scott, for sharing such beautiful story :)

    Hey Scott, totally hope you get this–do you ever tour in places elsewhere than Australia??? I, of course, am probably the farthest away from you, being born&bred in Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. but it would be totally awesome! And even after reading Behemoth and Goliath over at least 6 times, i’m still cracking up over how well you nailed the “nosy American reporter” stereotype for Eddie Malone. And if you want a decent amount of dollar$ or whatever currency and a few movietheaters full of sci-fi-action-steampunk fans, TOTALLY make the Leviathan series into a film!

You are an extraordinary man, and your imagination keeps me inspired to write! It would be a huge honour to see you in Winnipeg, Canada, if it were ever possible! Again, please don’t ever stop writing because the world really needs to know more about you and your ingenious mind! ???????!

    @ 49, since I posted that, I have read many more books. I now realize that there are many books based off of similar ideas, especially with Uglies. To expand upon the theme of the ‘new’ Uglies covers:
    Before the Hunger Games, there was Uglies,
    Before there was Uglies, there was Feed,
    Before there was Feed, there was 1984,
    Before there was…
    And the list goes on and on

    Has anyone else noticed that Thomas Hobbes (you know, like the captain of the Leviathan) wrote a book called Leviathan or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Common Wealth Ecclesiasticall and Civil (you know, the war of all against all) more commonly called Leviathan? I find that slightly amusing.

    Scott, only a smart-Alek (like Alek from the Leviathan series:) like you can come up with something as brilliant as the Leviathan! I just finished reading the first book, and am practically twitching to get my hands on Behemoth! And now I think I’m going to read the Uglies series, because judging by what people have said it sounds really good! Thanks for everything!
    And as much as I admire Dr. Barlow, she does get annoying sometimes…

    (For the Leviathan)
    The illustrations were well done! Bravo! And I have my suspicions about that Captain fellow…I have just finished the first book as well and I can’t wait to see what’s in store next. I do hope Alek finds out about Deryn’s little secret…it’s only fair that he gets to know now that Deryn knows his.

    LOVE THESE BOOKS. That is what my friend Eliza-wa said when I asked what she was reading. She told me what the Uglies series was about, and I said I’d read it. I didn’t get to it for a few weeks, but when I did, it was impossible to put the book down. I have read the Uglies series 4 times. They inspired me to become a writer, and I just want to say your fiction and writing style changed my life.

    Thanks for the experience,

    I read all three books in the leviathan series and I was so sad when they were over. I had nothing interesting to read for like months. If Scott comes up with a way to expand the series he will be my official new favorite author.

    I read the Uglies series with my now 20 year old daughter when she was in school. I could not wait for my younger daughter to be old enough to get it. She is now 13 and I had the joy of sharing it with her as well. Thank you, Scott for taking us through that journey. We are lending the books to my daughter’s best friend so that she understands our references to the book that we now apply to real life. I am sure you have been asked many times but I must know – WILL THERE EVER BE A MOVIE?? I have even considered trying to reach a producer myself and pitching the idea in hopes they would contact you.

    I LOVE Scott Westerfeld! He’s definitely one of my favourite authors (and there aren’t that many favourites!). I read Uglies many years ago and I’ve re-read them quite a few times. I’ve also read The Midnighters Trilogy (almost equally bubbly) and I can’t wait to read Leviathan! I know, it’s already out but I’m so busy! I’ve been a Westerfeld fan for years now!

    I love all of your books!!! I am reading Extras right now and finished Uglies Shay’s story today. It really helped me understand more of the book, Uglies. Please write another one for Pretties!!!!! You are a great author and I absolutely LOVE your books!!!! Extras so far is totally brain-teasing!!!! He he I think the high-tech language has rubbed off on me!!!

    Okay so I just finished reading The ‘Uglies’ Series (which was amazingly amazing by the way) And I agree with all the people that said it should be turned into a movie! It is so thrilling, adventurious, beautifully written, sexy, appealing, and daring that it would compete with the Twilight Books (which I have also read and own all the movies). That is how wonderful the Uglies series is. Listen to your fans Scott-la, were geniuses! You are officially my new favorite author :-). You know exactly how to portray everything that all the characters are thinking or feeling, and I’m impressed that you know how to portray a girls feelings so well, considering your a boy (man, male, whatever you feel like calling yourself). I’ve read other male authors books, and you have seriously set yourself so far ahead of everyone else. Stunning. <3

    July 31st, 2012 07:12

    Sorry, one more thing. IS THERE SOMETHING GOING ON WITH TALLY AND DAVID?!?! Because at the end of Extras, I do recall Tally and David sneaking of to the pleasure garden instead of watching Nana’s cake explode! (Sorry, spoiler alert :) Haha)

    August 11th, 2012 04:40

    I read Behemoth in a day. I know that sounds obsessive but I love your writing. (sounding obsessed again sorry) sometimes I hate reading, just because I hate that books end:( Please write more. please! I would buy your books in a heart beat.

  108. 108
    August 15th, 2012 21:42

    Cant wait for the movie if it is coming out! Uglies series is the best books ive ever read, Scott has totally changed my mind about reading… I need to see more of Tally and David’s relationship;;)!!! Cant wait to get Shay’s Story!

    August 19th, 2012 05:22

    I would just like to congradulate you on 1st of all the wonderful series, ‘Uglies’. Just the fact that you can write first person on a teenage girls perspective. That my friend deserves a medal alone! But, a whole series and a beautful outcome? Truly amazing and inspirational! You have made an excellent plot and story line! The characters and the story was overall very descriptive. I could have imagined every bit of ‘Uglies’ without the graphic novel but, boy am I excited! Cannot wait! May even want to get it signed!

    I really love your Leviathan series!!! As soon as I finished the Goliath, I wanted to read more about it and the entire series are page turner!!!! If it is possible it would be great if the Leviathan series is published into a movie :D :D :D

  112. 112
    September 8th, 2012 05:18

    My sister and I were doing this thing that if the Leviathan was a movie, and we had to hire Disney actors for the cast, Alek would be Prince Eric, Deryn would be Mulan, Count Volger would be the “nice” version of the mean Step-mother, and Dr. Barlow would be Belle’s father.
    I know this isn’t perfect, but come on people, everyone knows Disney doesn’t come anywhere close to this series!

    -MISTER Sharp = Dylan = Deryn = AWESOME :D

    I shall read Goliath next! Just finished Behemoth!

    I love the leviathan series. steampunk is one of my favorite subjects with books, movies and games. if you ever make a movie out of the series i hope it can be an anime because it would allow so much more exciting and awesome visual effects then to CGI animation or other methods. thank you so much scott for the amazing story of alek and dylan ive had alot of fun reading these books.

    Dear Mr. Westerfeld,
    I love love LOVE the Leviathan series. I am currently rereading it for the zillionth time. You should really really make another series based upon WWII, perhaps with Alek and Deryn’s children??? It would be so fantastic!!

  126. 126
    October 23rd, 2012 01:42

    Dear Mr. Westerfield,
    I am a huge Leviathan fan and please please please make a fifth book. When I got to the fourth book I was crushed that it was over. Besides, you just left us hanging. If you want to save countless people from agony, pleeeeeease write a fifth book!

    scott-sama, the uglies series is the best of the best when it comes to sci-fi! i’m writing my own series called Edison Academy which will have so many barking refrences to the series it’ll make your bloodey head spin!
    (with the spazzing out said & done )
    i agree with you about the hoverboards. since paved roads & highways are too space-wasting. also the Special operation sounds bubbly!
    It’s way too brain-shattering that you had to kill ZANE!
    wanna know a bubbly secret? i’m part of the crims @ my school.
    you sir are my insperation for E.A. because [long spazz-making story later] YOU ROCK!!!!

    I luv the book “peeps”. It is absolutely Amazing!!! Kinda creepy (with all the parasites and stuff). But I do want to know if those are real parasites. Or if it happened to be just your imagination. I mean, yeah that would be pretty cool, but still, I was all creeped out when I went to bed last night.

    I love to read. So I want to read all your books. My friend in getting old with his reading, it takes him days to finish a single book. When he used to be able to read a big book in just one day. I still read a lot, but high school makes me busy. It does drive my teachers crazy though when I read a book when they try to give a lecture in a class. So yeah for me, boo for class.

  137. 137
    November 2nd, 2012 02:32

    these are the most amazing books. one of the things that i like most is that there isn’t much romance until the last book, so you actually care about the characters and their feelings, it’s not all centered around mushy stuff. beautifully written, and i LOVE the illustrations.

    I have to admit, I love books with romance! The Uglies and Leviathan series are amazing! If I tried to write a book with romance it would end up super unrealistic and awkward, but you have amazing skill. The Leviathan series is the onlt science fictiob series ive read that i have enjoyed. Anyway you can probably tell that I’m obsessed with your books, and you might not read this since there’s… 154 comments!

    I absolutely love the Leviathan trilogy. I can clearly picture it as a movie. I know some books that are made into movies don’t really follow the book all that well, but this series is so unique and original, it seems like it would be hard to stray from the story line. I don’t know anything about the movie business or what it takes to get it there, but i would love to see it happen <3
    Your writing is amazing. You've inspired me so much.

    Ok the ugliest trilogy has to become a movie. Three movies anyway. I honestly think they might be better that the hunger games just saying. This is me favorite series!! ( I read a lot, maybe too much so I have read a lot of other series) if this series does happen to become a movie be sure to help with the production, especially the script. That’s why the hunger games movies are so good, they actually follow the script because Suzan Collins was there to help write it. She also helped design the clothing and the set so the movie is how she pictured it when she was writing the book. Anyway, amazing books, just finished reading the specials for the second time. I was disappointed tho I when to the website that has the alternative ending but it was taken down :( kinda bummed about that but it’s cool haha

    Hey Scott I just finished the Leviathan series and it was great I loved the illustrations especially in Behemoth of the Behemoth fighting the German ships in the ottoman harbor. Though I was not so happy with the “Cliff-Hanger” in Goliath that is sooo not cool man you need to do more with the series or at least like a second series that like branches off of the first.. But PLEASE do like at least one or two more books in the Leviathan series?? Please?? For me??

    Me again! Sorry I forgot to say that Leviathan must be a movie! Just wait a few years until special effects get better, then it will look epic! :)
    You probably wouldn’t remember me from the convention, it was that MELBOURNE writers festival. I was the blonde 1 who asked lots of questions all at once at spoke too fast :)

    I just finished Goliath . . . after finishing Behemoth last night . . . after finishing Leviathan the day before . . . after starting it in school the day before.
    . . . X) Suffice to say, my family’s a bit annoyed at me for spending the first bit of our Christmas Break “hiding away” in my room doing “nothing”. Nothing! Yeah, right! NO!
    I’m the kind of person that replies with “eh, I like a lot of books” when people ask me what my favorites are, but that just got thrown out the window. The Leviathan Trilogy! How have I never heard of these before?! You, sir, are an absolute wizard with words and characters (and history and action and tension and humor and perfection!!!! And everything else!!).
    I need to go reread them now. XD
    Thank you ever so much for writing these, sir! I haven’t read such good books in so long; I think I was losing my faith in my school library (and fiction in general these days) and then I read these and BOOM: “FAITH RESTORED MUST READ MORE”. Also, you’ve inspired me to try my hand at writing again; since starting school this year I’ve worked myself into a huge slump where I feel like I hardly have any time or motivation for writing and it’s been killing me inside (no joke). That, and whatever writing I //have// been able to do has been engulfed by idiotic fanfictions and unfinished works that are getting me nowhere.
    I can never thank you enough!
    Now I should probably get off your blog and the internet and go make good on my newfound will to write (because though I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything I’ve found so far on here, spending time reading it and gathering inspiration and optimism is useless if I don’t stop and do something with it) so, I’ll bid you farewell now. Again, thank you!
    Fare thee well (and a Happy New Year, too!):
    PS> I’ve started reading Leviathan aloud to my little sister. I think you’ll be happy to hear that she, too, shares my enthusiasm for the book so far. =)

    And if it is love, you must have built attraction for each and every aspect of his or her personality. Love will make you fall for the person’s complete character.

    Dear Mr Westerfeld
    I am what you might say a fan and have read your books numerous times, sometimes in the same week. You have only one minor flaw in your series. You have not continued… I have had the disappointment of reading your books and then finishing to a news report by Eddie Malone. One that does explain clearly the end of the story, but left me with the hunger of a reader. I was one of the students in the audience in the Brisbane Writers Festival. As soon as your presentation was over, I was in need of Leviathan the book. That weekend I purchased the book and had it shipped to me from London. (Accidental Irony) I read the book six times in the same week. I think your work is amazing to make me do that!

    A Devoted Reader

    I just finished Uglies and I am currently reading Pretties. Your work is amazing. I am wondering if there is a movie for any of your books, I tried to find some but I only found trailers. I hope there is one out there somewhere or in the process!
