Across the Universe by Beth Revis | Book Review

Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Reading Group: High School+

Personal Rating: 4 Out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the spaceship Godspeed. She has left her boyfriend, friends--and planet--behind to join her parents as a member of Project Ark Ship. Amy and her parents believe they will wake on a new planet, Centauri-Earth, three hundred years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed's scheduled landing, cryo chamber 42 is mysteriously unplugged, and Amy is violently woken from her frozen slumber.

Someone tried to murder her.

Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed's 2,312 passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader. And Elder, Eldest's rebellious teenage heir, is both fascinated with Amy and eager to discover whether he has what it takes to lead. Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she put her faith in a boy who has never seen life outside the ship's cold metal walls? All Amy knows is that she and Elder must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.

Cover: I love this cover.  I think it's so pretty.  It's really simple, just Amy and Elder almost kissing in space, but I really like it.

My Review: Oh my god this went live when I didn't mean for it to!  I'm so sorry!!
I gotta tell you guys that this book came up on my Amazon recommended page and I only read it because of the cover.  It's so pretty!  Scify stuff isn't typically my thing, but I did end up enjoying this novel.  It took a little long to really get going though.  And I just wanted Elder and Amy to get together, but they never did!  The story itself was really interesting and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who liked The Giver or some other dystopian novel.  I think it's cute how much elder cares for Amy and he doesn't even really know her.  It was also interesting having the two of them coexist because they're the same age, but they know two completely different lives.  The scene where Amy almost gets gang raped was crazy though.  The entire mating season thing was something, but I really wish Elder found out about it.  I don't know why, I just feel like he should have figured it out somehow.  It was also fun trying to figure out the killer.  It is a murder mystery after all.   As much as I enjoyed this novel there were a few things I wish were different in it.  

Smile!  I'll talk to you soon!xxx
