    I've heard it mentioned before that DNFDid Not Finishreviews were useless and self indulgent Why would someone want to read a review by someone who didn't even finish the book My answer to thatThere's always going to be a small fraction of reviewers who don't connect with a book and can't finish it but to dismiss all DNF reviews I t

    I didn't enjoy Across the Universe as much as I thought I would Like most YA after the first 100 pages you know you're reading a novel written for teens That isn't a bad thing but readers looking for a deep complex novel aren't going to find

    35 stars The movie Passengers—with the God like Chris Pratt—made me really want to read this bookI actually couldn’t finish the movie because I thought it was too slow and the romance was just too expected but the book entertained me uite a bitThe ship itself—Godspeed—is pretty curious It has its own separate levels and functions and the world inside it is reminiscent of a dystopian one The setting is

    Space is awesome I say that like I've been there For all you know I have I could be a certified astronaut in the US Space Program who took time off from being in space to write fiction about being in space and that's why I've been on Goodreads so much I could be You don't knowOkay so I'm not I haven't nor probably never will go to outer space but that doesn't stop me from thinking it's the coolest and most a

Summary Across the Universe

To kill her And if Amy doesn't do something soon her parents will be nextNow 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 As science fiction or as a dystopian space mystery this book was pretty much awesome I loved the idea behind it frozen people being transported on a spaceship to a new planet destined to arrive in 300 years from take off but uh oh not everything goes to plan Someone is reviving the frozen people in their containers with the intention of letting them drownI really liked this whole aspect of it and I ve never been a space story fan I never cared for Star Wars Star Trek or anything like that My problem was how the book was sold to the audience It should have been shown like thisBut instead it was marketed as a romance story which it just wasn t A few lustful imaginings of a teenage boy is hardly a romance novel the publishers obviously thought that was all young adult readers want But let s face it very few guys are going to be interested in reading this book just by looking at the cover yeah I know guys are silly and what s not to love about pink sparkles This is much sci fi or mystery than it is romance In fact there is hardly any romantic suggestion at all and most of what there is happens to be one sided Does Amy even like Elder that way She seemed to do an awful lot of pining for her ex boyfriend Jason rather that showing much interest in ElderNot that I mind that much the story wasn t lacking without the sweet nothings and teen love perhaps a refreshing change actually plus I loved the sci fi Will definitely read the next book

Uld 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 rulesAmy uickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction Someone one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship tried There were a lot of problems with this book Some were parts that just fell flat when they should have created some intrigue and some were full on fail I think I can divide my issues with the book into four categories Flat Characters Obvious Plot Twists ScienceFail and Bad Storytelling I ll keep the spoilers behind cuts and try to give a fair account and some suggestions for improvement Let s start withFlat CharactersAmy is a girl She s got red hair She likes running She loves her parents That s all I know about her Really Didn t I just read a 400 page book about her So why do I feel like I just went speed dating and talked to Single 24 for 30 seconds before a bell rang Her OMGWTF Where am I response to waking early after having been cryogenically frozen for transport on a spaceship seemed generic It was initially realistic but fell flat when no nuances or reactions that showed of her character were present If I were Ms Revis editor I would suggest that she gives Amy of a backround identity Was she a rebel in school Did she clash with teachers or classmates about what was right A few good flashbacks to this would provide her with much of jumping off place to rebel against the fascist regime of the ship which currently doesn t seem like a moral stance but rather a Things at home weren t like thisEldest doesn t like me whine fest especially in light of the fact that she followed her parents on this voyage rather than being independent and staying Also she s 17 and still calls her dad Daddy EwIf I had only one word to describe Elder it would be dumb He s slow to catch on to almost all plot twists and when a thought does fly into his head it s not strong enough to make it to logical and obvious conclusions He s devoted to Amy I don t know why The idea of him in the leadership position he was intended for seems ill suited as he follows Amy around but I don t get the feeling it was a deliberate decision Luckily if I had two words the second would be Curious Elder genuinely likes to explore and know things If this were developed further I could see myself liking the guyEldest is just a symbol for the controlfreedom dichotomy and uestions of having emotions and sadness versus having contentment but no feelings which the book touches on but seems afraid to comment on He s of a set piece than a character and I wish he and these themes were developed which could have been done in interesting ways especially with a ward of insane people on the shipObvious Plot TwistsI literally predicted all plot twists before they happened Revis seems to have gone for uantity over uality here packing half a dozen into the end of the book none of which are surprising save one which only succeeds in surprising us because she basically cheated with the format of the book Some of the twists I only predicted a couple chapters early but many were early early on in the book effectively killing the murder mystery plot I literally knew who the murderer was the first time we met the character and was able to also predict other plot twists about him from the get go Revis needs to use a lighter touch with her hints and foreshadowing Several times I actually thought we had solved a mystery only to have the characters puzzle over it a couple chapters later and me say What you didn t get that really My entire experience reading the book went like this Hey they sure talk about how the other Elder is dead a lot I bet view spoiler he s not really dead hide spoiler
