Review: Across the Universe

Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Published:Razor Bill
Released:January 11,2011
Overall Rating: 4 out 5 stars

From goodreads-

Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone-one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship-tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.
Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.

         Before Across the Universe was even released I think the whole book community was buzzing about it. From then on I knew I had to get it! And there starts my journey.....

 The plot itself was nothing like I had ever read before because this was my first sci-fi YA novel! I love how Ms.Revis incorporated a love story while still making it not all about a love story. Getting closer to the end she definitely had me on my toes because of the "mystery."

Amy was absolutely an enjoyable character. It was interesting to see her reactions when she was put into certain situations. Elder...Elder.... I feel so sorry for you. Your always trying to do your best but everything you do never seems right! Eldest just bugged me throughout the whole book I found myself getting outraged as well and also a little scared at times.

  I will definitely check out the second book, A Million Suns. How exciting! I think that's it. If you have not checekd Across the Universe out you surely should! Thanks for reading

 Happy Reading,

P.S. Expect more posts since I am on summer break! As well as more reviews.........

I loved "Across The Universe" too! I posted a review on it a few weeks ago if you want to check it out :) The book was so unique and thought provoking! The characters are like no other and Beth Revis writes so beautifully yet intense. The second books is called "A Million Suns." :)
