Review: Across the Universe (Across the Universe #1)
Title: Across the Universe (Across the Universe #1)
Author: Beth Revis
Rating: 4/5 stars
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.
First I just want to say AMAZING COVER!! Isn't it beautiful!?
I waited a long time to write this review - mostly because I wasn't sure what to say. I liked this book but I didn't love it. I didn't feel really connected with the characters, even though I understand I really can't because I have no idea what life on a spaceship would be like. I liked the characters but I didn't love them.
I don't know if there just wasn't enough happening in the book for me, but I found myself bored sometimes. I do have to say that everthing wasn't predictable so I wasn't that bored. I think some things were just not interesting to me. I found the behaviors on the ship down right halarious at some points and other times I was just like 'are you serious?!'.
Not bad but not amazing, I would settle for good.
