Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Released: January 11, 2011
Publisher: Razorbill
Rated: YA

A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder. 
  Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would 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 rules.

Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone-one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship-tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.

Now 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.

What I thought:


I wanted to like this one more, but I found it horribly depressing. I'm not sure if that was what I was supposed to be feeling, but after getting to the end I couldn't help but think "That sucks!" on Amy's behalf. But I still liked it and enjoyed the story.

I have been watching a lot of Battlestar Galactica lately and so I was able to full get into this one with the aspect of a floating home for it's inhabitants. I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the novel. The who-dun-it storyline. But I was bogged down with the parts I thought were really depressing and I couldn't shake it. I know the other two in the trilogy just might be just as depressing, but I am looking forward to see how it turns out. To see Elder become Eldest and see how or if he can turn things around.

I will be reading the next one, even anticipating I might not get a happier outcome, but the storyline is very interesting and I want to see how it plays out.
