across the universe by beth revis review-annmarie.

spoilers may be included be warned!
i recommend this book.

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.


ok i heard about this book on love fantasy novels and thought it sounded good. im so glad i got it while im not normal into sci fi books i found that i liked this one.

the start of this book went straight into the story and by the time you understand how Godspeed runs your hooked. there is so much to like about it and i felt like i was on a emotional roller-coaster. there was pain, happiness, love and hate and so much more and ever time Amy or elder felt it i did to it was breath taking that so much love and detail went into this novel. ill confess that i stayed up nearly all night reading it because i could not sleep with not knowing how it would end. 

im guessing you want to know if there was any faults in the novel. there was one point that really upset me but i don't want to say and spoil it for anyone that has not read it but im shore once you have you well know the point im taking about. 

i give the book 4 stars
