Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis
A Million Suns started three months after Across the Universe finished. I kind of don't like time jumps, but this wasn't so bad. Mostly. The plot is still amazing; I just love everything about it. I love the ship, and a few of the people, mostly just Elder and Amy. But that is enough for me :)
I kind of hated all the hate towards Elder as the Leader in this book. Although I do understand it. But I wish it wasn't so. Also wish they would just drug them all again :D Even if that is mean and whatever. Things would be so much easier with Phydus.
I loved the clue hunt they were on, found it very exciting. I also kind of like Orion. And I don't totally understand why Amy hates him sooo much. But we'll see in book three :) Although, I do hate him as well. Just not that much.
There were a lot of deaths in this book. Many people who deserved to die, but also so many who didn't. Also, the murderer was a huge mystery. I kind of suspected the person who did it, but I had another person as my first suspect ;p
We learn a lot more of other characters in this book, which I also kind of liked. This book also made me love Elder so much more. He is even pant less! :D Which was a very good thing in the book. Wish it was more scenes like that. But oh, Elder got hurt a lot in this book. Most physically, which really sucked :\
The mystery about the ship is very big in this book, and I liked how it all turned out. But oh, the cliffhanger is huge. But I am so so so excited for book 3, Shades of Earth :D
I loved that Amy finally told Elder what happened to her in Across the Universe. But oh, it took a long long long time before she did :p And I felt that it didn't focus much on it, not as much as I had hoped. But then, there wasn't really time for it. I really wish to know who did the murder, though :)
There was this one thing I hated. Which you should NOT READ if you don't want SPOILERS. This book had even less romance than the first one. Even though there was a lot more love in this one. I hated the last few pages. Where they had an argument, and then Amy says they can't be together or whatever. I don't understand why she feels so strongly about it. And either way, she should feel more strongly for Elder than for that issue. It just.. felt so damn selfish. And I hated that :p But, I have a tiny hope. Since Beth told me some weeks ago that book 1 is about Hope and book 2 is about Faith and book 3 is Love. And oh, I just hope there will be love in book 3. From the beginning, not just in the end.. :)
Anyway, this was an amazing book, and if you haven't read it yet, do so! :)
