Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis
The book is just so pretty; the hardcover. The Godspeed on the cover is stunning. Must buy a copy that I will not read. And the story is awesome. It held me captivated from the beginning. I would look at the pages, and see that I had gotten so far in reading, but hours had passed. Loved it.
I loved that there are two different POV in it. I loved knowing Elder's thoughts. Loved his POV the most. And I just adored him. So sweet, and cute. Wish for more of that in A Million Suns.
For the most part I loved Amy. Mostly. Wish she could have just realized that a life with Elder is not so bad. I, at least, would have found it to be amazing (A)
I also liked the other characters. Mostly. Kind of. I liked Harley :) But that one ended bad. Didn't like that he made Elder jealous. But he was sweet. And.. uhm. I did not like Eldest or Doc. And I hated hearing about Jason. Just so you know :D
It hurt, in the beginning. Knowing how they all got frozen down. It sounded so painful. But I also liked that Beth did describe it. I like knowing. I really liked the mystery of it all. I just loved everything. But oh, I HATED a part in the middle. Hated it. But also understood it. Sort of. Although it would have been better if it wasn't there (A)
And oh, I am very worried about what will happen next. I am hoping for a lot of romance, which I think there will be. But I am worried about the ship's future. And their future. I do have hope, however :D
I do not want to spoil this amazing book for you, so you just have to pick it up and read it yourself. Because it is worth it.
