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.

Pretty good cover isn't it? But don't judge the book by its cover. There's more to it than you'd think.

The book started a little intriguing. Amy and her parents are to be frozen inside this box that looks like a coffin to be sent on a mission. Three hundred and one years before they are supposed to be awaken, hoping to live a new life. Little did Amy know that when she wakes up, she will be on where she isn't supposed to be.

These futuristic novels I've been reading interest me a lot. That's one reason why I decided to read this book besides the beautiful cover which fooled me. While Across the Universe is one of those novels, it managed to capture it's readers with it's own unique stories of lies, leadership and love. There are frexing, brilly words that indicate the future settings but won't leave you confused. The characters are okay. Not very much likable especially Eldest. I think the character development is not that impressive but can improve. The book is more of a science fiction and mystery. The romance part, well, we need more Elder and Amy romance! The book needs more of it so that it won't be that serious.

I liked the premise of Across the Universe. It was still a good read for me although the whole idea can be terrifying. Read the book to know what I mean. I thought it is not a series. Well, it shows in Goodreads that there's a sequel and it might still be about Elder and Amy. I have to read the next books to know what's gonna happen to Godspeed!
