Across the Universe

Updated: Jan 26



Amy wakes up fifty years too early from her frozen slumber, far, far away from home.

New society:

Everyone on Godspeed has brown hair, brown eyes, and dark skin. Except redhead Amy.

Elder is next in line to rule the ship's people. But when he meets Amy, he starts to rethink everything he's been taught.

Someone else wants him to rethink it all too. Amy is just one of the Frozens who have been tampered with, but she is the only one who survives. A nameless, faceless vigilantly is trying to send a message that will make Elder rethink everything he thinks he knows.

Across the Universe is a great series for readers who are looking to dabble in Science Fiction. Yes, there is a spaceship, stars, and a new planet, but the series isn't just for the die-hard sci-fi fans. I had never read a sci-fi book before this and found I wasn't boggled down with jargon or streams of facts. Beth Revis weaves all the necessary elements of a sci-fi book with a great love story.

“I could tell them about the different kinds of rain, pouring rain that's perfect for when you want to stay inside and watch a movie or read, or piercing rain that feels like needles on your skin, or soft summer rain that makes your first kiss with your first love all the sweeter. ~ Amy” ― Beth Revis, Across the Universe

Narration: There are four narrators four the series, two for Amy and two for Elder. The reason behind the change is a mystery to me, but I will say the producers did an excellent job of finding people with similar voices. The swap is not jarring.
