It’s been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He’s finally free to enact his vision – no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that’s growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.
In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.
The Main Idea: HOLY CRAP THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. Seriously. Starts with a bang and definitely ends on one. PLEASE at least take a stab at this one even if you were unsure about Across the Universe. This one is a million times better!
Oh. My. Goodness. I wish I could take back my rating of the first book, even though I would still call it around a 4.5 out of 5. But, this one. This one was like A MILLION SUNS better than the first! (did you see that awesome play on words I did there? Pretty proud of myself.)
The story started of with a bang. I loved that I already knew the characters and the world of Godspeed so I didn’t have to sit through page upon page of world building. With that out of the way, the action started pretty much immediately. Shocking realizations, more questions, mysteries, and even murderers. The book captured my attention the ENTIRE time. Which is saying a lot, considering Across the Universe kind of lacked in that aspect (and even then, I loved it!).
However, I still remain confused on how I feel about Amy and Elder. I know everybody is like… ohh they are so precious and cute together! But I’m not sure… I feel like they both still have a LOT to work on with themselves before they should be committing to one another. Maybe I’m just reading too much into it. Hah! Another pun. Gosh, I’m good.
Really, that’s all I need to say. I loved it. It was amazing. The mysteries and twists and turns are OUT OF THIS WORLD (literally. wow, i need to stop.). And, that ending will leave you wanting SO MUCH MORE. Ahh I can NOT believe I have to wait till January 2013. WHAT IS THIS BETH REVIS? WHY? WHY? WHY?
And on that note: This review (or lack thereof) is now complete.
