    3.5When I found ACROSS THE UNIVERSE at the library, I spent several minutes trying to decipher what the cover was I finally decided that the cover featured space fish kissing before I realized that it was actually a girl and a boy trying to kiss, Spider Man style....

    I ve heard it mentioned before that DNF Did Not Finish reviews were useless and self indulgent Why would someone want to read a review by someone who didn t even finish the book My answer to that There s always going to be a small fraction of reviewers who don t connect with a book and can t finish it, but to dismiss all DNF reviews, I think, is problematic Especially for an author.Because it s not necessarily the reader s fault for not being able to connect to the book Often there are rookie mistakes made in writing, plot or characterization that inhibits readers from investing in the story Being able to hook a reader within the first couple of pages is an essential skill of any artisan storyteller and if you re having a lot of DNF reviews or simply bad reviews then they probably contain a goldmine in advice to help improve your range of skills.I credit Revis with imagination and thoughtful plot The language changes and mono ethnic parts of this book showed the kind of forethought and deep, intensive investigation I generally like in an author.My issues were that the writing is very vague and sloppy One of the first events in the book, Eld...

    I didn t enjoy Across the Universe as much as I thought I would Like most YA, after the first 100 pages, you know you re reading a novel written for teens That isn t a bad thing, but readers looking for a deep, complex novel, aren t going to find it here.ETA YA is not synonymous with shallow Some writers think it is, but it isn t They think that because they re writing for teens, they get a pass to write a book filled with plot holes I don t think that s the case with Beth Revis, but I just wanted to clear up my statement.Across the Universe doesn t know what it wants to be On one hand, it s a typical YA romance that revolves around infatuation at first sight On the other hand, it s got an interesting premise, even though it isn t very plausible when compared to other Science Fiction novels that tackle Generation Ships It isn t necessarily a bad book Not at all I d call it Science Fiction 101 for those who haven t read Ender s Game But it isn t a good book Not by any means I was really disappointed with the last 150 pages Instead of a mature ending, we re treated to a classic Agatha Christie, everyone is the suspect mystery We have adequate build up and suspense in fact, we have very good build up and suspense and our pay off is equally decent But, I could see the villain from a mile away Across the Universe is predictable, but highly suspenseful, kind of like a bad whodunit As much ...

    There were a lot of problems with this book Some were parts that just fell flat when they should have created some intrigue, and some were full on fail I think I can divide my issues with the book into four categories Flat Characters, Obvious Plot Twists, Science Fail, and Bad Storytelling I ll keep the spoilers behind cuts, and try to give a fair account and some suggestions for improvement Let s start withFlat Characters Amy is a girl She s got red hair She likes running She loves her parents That s all I know about her Really Didn t I just read a 400 page book about her So why do I feel like I just went speed dating, and talked to Single 24 for 30 seconds before a bell rang Her OMGWTF Where am I response to waking early after having been cryogenically frozen for transport on a spaceship seemed generic It was initially realistic, but fell flat when no nuances or reactions that showed of her character were present If I were Ms Revis editor, I would suggest that she gives Amy of a backround identity Was she a rebel in school Did she clash with teachers or classmates about what was right A few good flashbacks to this would provide her with much of jumping off place to rebel against the fascist regime of the ship, which currently doesn t seem like a moral stance but rather a Things at home weren t like this Eldest doesn t like me whine fest, especially in light of the fact that she followed her parents on this voyage rather...

    I had much trouble forming my thoughts about this book to write a review Across the Universe is a hard book to describe Yes, it has that lovely cover that beckons everyone to read it Yes, it has an interesting premise Yes, it has all these elements to make it a brilliant read, something fresh and exciting But, for me, it just didn t give me everything I had wanted.Dystopias and I have a love hate relationship I love The Hunger Games and Unwind but others books, like Matched and Wither, are iffy to me than anything If I were to compare Across the Universe to certain dystopian novels, I would say it could have been the child of The Host and Inside Out with a bit of Star Trek thrown in for good measure I m definitely a Star Wars fan rather than a Star Trek fan, though, so you can imagine why this book and I clashed a bit Almost the entire story takes place on the ship christened Godspeed as it travels to a new planet, labeled as Centauri Earth, which humans hope to colonize The estimated time of travel is 250 years, and sixteen year old Amy is one of the few to be frozen alive and loaded as cargo, set to be reawakened when the ship makes landing.Due to outside forces, however, Amy is reawakened early.and she finds herself on the ship, a country unto itself ruled by a man named Eldest who has a successor named Elder The...

    3.5 stars The movie Passengers with the God like Chris Pratt made me really want to read this book.I actually couldn t finish the movie, because I thought it was too slow and the romance was just too expected, but the book entertained me quite a bit.The ship itself Godspeed is pretty curious It has its own separate levels and functions and the world inside it is reminiscent of a dystopian one The setting is honestly my favourite thing about this book The story combines mystery, family friendship and science fiction in a way that grips the reader The romance lacks originality and passion, but fortunately it s not inundating the plot.Many plot twists are hidden inside chapters, especially the last ones They made me want to immediately pick the second book up Started it and it s surprising so far.Amy is a lovely, humane girl Elder s role is important, and I certainly did like le...

    Video full series review spoiler free 2 11 17 After reading the second book and having time to sit on it, I m lowering my rating of this one from 3 stars to 2.5 stars The sequel was fine, but this first book was a rough start and was a mostly negative experience for me.Original 2 6 17 I wrote some harsh things about this book on Twitter and in earlier reading updates about how it was offensive, so I want to address that This book is a dystopia, which I didn t realize going in In some respects, it is intentionally offensive A terrible society is set up that you are supposed to hate and want to be overthrown.I never know what people consider to be spoilers so I m hiding some of the following points Open if you want to know .Race view spoiler Race is something that was handled questionably The society in this book is monoethnic They are described as having darker, olive toned skin and dark hair and eyes When the main character Amy is introduced with her pale skin, red hair, and green eyes, the other character Elder immediately sees her as beautiful than anyone else I felt that this reinforced white beauty standards If the races had been changed, however, it may have also reinforced exoticism though I m not the right person to ask on that She is the most beautiful thing I have ever see...

    Really enjoyed this I loved all of the twists and surprises The characters were just okay though This could have been a 5 star book, I think, if I d loved them I think Harley was my favorite I m excited to read on and see where this story goes

    As science fiction, or as a dystopian space mystery this book was pretty much awesome I loved the idea behind it frozen people being transported on a spaceship to a new planet, destined to arrive in 300 years from take off but, uh oh, not everything goes to plan Someone is reviving the frozen people in their containers with the intention of letting them drown.I really liked this whole aspect of it, and I ve never been a space story fan I never cared for Star Wars, Star Trek or anything like that My problem was how the book was sold to the audience It should have been shown like this But instead it was marketed as a romance story, which it just wasn t A few lustful imaginings of a teenage boy is hardly a romance novel, the publishers obviously thought that was all young adult readers want But, let s face it, very few guys are going to be interes...

    Space is awesome I say that like I ve been there For all you know, I have I could be a certified astronaut in the U.S Space Program who took time off from being in space to write fiction about being in space and that s why I ve been on Goodreads so much I could be You don t know.Okay, so I m not I haven t nor probably never will go to outer space, but that doesn t stop me from thinking it s the coolest and most awesomest thing in the universe Which as a matter of fact it actually is the coolest natural thing in all the verse that is presuming you can call it a thing Really space is the absence of things As the absolute absence of anything, is it really a thing Should it even have a name Maybe we should just call it ________ That might be a accurate description view spoiler Shhhh, no one is su...
