Book Review: A Million Suns

A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)A Million Suns by Beth Revis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Godspeed is no longer run by lies and the people are no longer slave to Phydus. Elder has taken the position if the leader of the ship. But that is not as easy as it seem. Soon enough there chaos broke and a rebellion is in the air. Deaths and various of crimes rises. And Orion even in his frozen state still has secrets to reveal and he left clues for Amy. But someone is tampering with the clues. Who? and Why?

Frustrating, exciting and compelling. The moment I read the first page I was like what happened? I thought I skipped a page. It was action from the start. There were already in the middle of something big. It was revelation after a revelation. After one problem another problem appears. It keeps coming. And there is this whole clue that Orion left for Amy that will leave you just guessing for what it is. In fact the whole time that I was reading the book I was focused with where those clues lead and who tampered them while I just felt pure frustration for the people in the ship and the problems that Elder encountered. I wanted to scream at them, to punch Bartie and to strangle Luthor, and then I wanted to slap Elder because he is being a pushover. Okay, okay I need to calm down here I am obviously being carried away. Although he showed a lot of efforts to control the people and stop Bartie, it was still not enough. He was overpowered by Bartie and the secrets he discovered. When Elder finally fought Bartie that was one of the best moments in this story. Maybe because I have been thinking about that the entire time Bartie is being such a smarty pants. The relationship between Amy and Elder also changed. They moved to a level where Amy is starting to open her heart for the possibility of falling in love with Elder. However, I am relieved that the book did not linger on her confusing feelings because it would have been too much. Maybe that will come in the book? Just a guess though. The only reasonable people on the ship are Amy and Elder.

The ending of the book is different story. I was thinking why didn’t they think about that earlier? I keep on forgetting that the people there are raised to know only the Eldest system of government so even Elder would be caught up with that idea. It was a satisfying ending though and good start for the next book.
This book made me emotional in a I-want-to-be-able-punch-everybody that kind of way, kept me guessing about the clues and that’s why it’s a good book because it left me with a lot to think about.
