Bogus to Bubbly: An Insider's Guide to the World of the Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Bogus to Bubbly: An Insider's Guide to the World of the Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

The World of Uglies, set in our not-so-distant future, is a complex place filled with bubbly technology and lingo, yet bogus rules about status and appearance. That's why a guide to the world of uglies has been requisitioned from the hole in the wall. Inside you'll find:

* A rundown on all the cliques, from Crims and Cutters to tech-heads and surge-monkeys.
* The complete history, starting with the destruction of the oil bug to the launch of Extras in space.
* How all those awesome gadgets came to be: hoverboards, eyescreens, skintennas, sneak suits....
* Plus an exclusive look at Scott Westerfeld's first draft of Extras—starring Hiro, no Aya.

Bogus to Bubbly isn't exactly a book, it's a guide. Which explains the reason why I have nothing really to say about it. I did like it, it cleared a few questions I had up. It was really useful and I think every Uglies fan should read it at least once after they've finished all four books in the series. It has everything in it, which I was really excited about. I really wanted to know where his ideas came from and how he created this amazing world. All-in-all this is an awesome guide to the Uglies.
