Sella Malin Did anyone else feel that Extras had basically the same plotline as Uglies?

Think about it: In Uglies, Tally finds someone and then falls in love. She also thinks of betraying someone, but then has second thoughts...in the end she betrays them anyway.

In Extras, Aya finds someone and then falls in love. She also thinks of betraying someone, but then has second thoughts...in the end she betrays them anyway.

Erm...coincidence? Maybe Scott Westerfeld needs to get more original ideas...

Oh and am I missing anything? What else is similar in the plot of the two books?

Allie (pearlrose95) | 385 comments sorta, sorta not. ur right, the basic idea was the same, but there were a lot of very different stuff


message 3: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Yeah, I guess...hey, you know what's funny? Have you seen the twilight zone episode "Number 12 Looks Just Like You?"

It's really, really creepy, but it's really similar to uglies!! Here's the link to watch it:

Naomi (catfanatic) Thats scary. I wouldn't want to live in that world!


message 5: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Neither would I!! But isn't it a lot like Tally's world? Except Tally's world is much better. There are other options...like being Smoky or being Special. XD


message 6: by Naomi (new)

Naomi (catfanatic) Ya, it is. I'd run off w/ David for sure!


message 7: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin SO WOULD I!!! *sigh*


message 8: by Naomi (new)

Naomi (catfanatic) Not in real life! In the book! I don't understand, how can people fall in love w/ a character? For heaven's sake, they're fake!


message 9: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Shut up. :P (jk!)


message 10: by Naomi (last edited Jul 26, 2008 11:50AM) (new)

Naomi (catfanatic) lol! (I sersioly don't understand though!)


message 11: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Because you wish the character was real so you could really fall in love with them. XD

And besides, how is it not possible to fall in love with Edward Cullen? Seriously. Lol.


message 12: by Naomi (new)

Naomi (catfanatic) Fiction. You obviously haven't read as much romantic fiction as me. No offense!


message 13: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin What? What are you talking about? I'm REALLY confused.


message 14: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin That didn't make sense with what I said.


message 15: by Naomi (new)

Naomi (catfanatic) I'm not in love with Edward because I have a lot of practice reading about lots of loves. I guess you could say I'm immune to falling in love with characters.


message 16: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Oh, okay. XD

Well I don't know if I've really fallen in love with Edward...like you said, they're not real, so yeah.

But I know one person who IS real that I've fallen in love with. ;)
