Book Review: Across the Universe

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)Across the Universe by Beth Revis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amy was frozen with her parents to be one of the people on board a ship and to wake up in a new planet they can call Earth. But something went wrong. And Amy woke up earlier than she was supposed to. Afraid for the lives of her parents, Amy must find the person who woke her up and expose the lies that has been running the ship all this time.

This is my first read of a book that has something to do with space travel. I can say that I did not regret reading this book. It was exciting and mysterious. My only complain is that it was a really sloooooow climb towards the plot. So slow that it slowed my reading. It took me awhile to finish this book because the first few pages did not fuel my interest. And I admit I didn't understand it. Good thing patience kicked in and I pursued my reading. I would have regret not continuing it.

When I read almost half of the book that was where the action started. I could not stop reading it. The ship was one twisted place to be. I would not want to be Amy and just be the only one to know that something was wrong. I could just imagine what kind of life they have on board. With their repeated routines and fake environment. It would have drive me insane. I was right all along regarding who the real murderer is. However there was so much more to the reason behind it than I would have guessed. In the end it was hard to decide who the bad guy is. It is more complicated than that.

Lies, deception and plotting. Unravel the truth with each turn of a page. This is one space travel you don't want to miss.
