Across the Universe

Across the Universe - Beth Revis The first thing I want to say about this book is how amazing the cover is. I think that’s what ultimately made me bring it home – one look and I fell in love. It’s just so aghhh gorgeous I couldn’t stop looking at it.

As for the story… ah-ma-zing. I loved every second of it, could not put it down. I loved how it was part sci-fy, part dystopian – it was so well done, so well-balanced. That was my favorite part – getting to the heart of matters, to what exactly was going on in this strange and rather creepy ship. I love that the story wasn’t solely focused on their relationship and that Amy didn’t fall immediately into Elder’s arms – they both had, in fact, other, bigger things on their minds. I can’t say the twists and turns completely surprised me, but they were really well-timed and flowed very nicely together. I can’t wait to read the next one and see how things advance and develop and see where our two main characters end up.
