It’s been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He’s finally free to enact his vision – no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that’s growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.
In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.
Amazing amazing book! Speechless! Just finished reading A Million Suns! Now get me the last book!!! I can’t wait for Shades of Earth! 2013, hurry hurry!! The author left me/us, readers, with a word ‘ready’. Oh my, yes, I’m READY of what’s going to happen to Amy & all the people in the shuttle! I love the murder mystery, clues Orion wants Amy to find out for herself! Every bit in the book is amazing!! Definitely a must read especially who is like a weird nerd like me when it comes to Science Fiction in it with Dystopia genre. I love the author, Beth Revis! Super brilliant author! While I was reading this, I can’t help but hold my breath for every page. I gasp in horror. Believe it or not, I feel this book.
Whenever I read this, I can’t help but feel like I’m in the book. Trapped in a ship… couldn’t go outside. No earth natural food, all artificially made. I hate artificial. Like, I’m in the future…you know. Literally in the future. Living a hard – harder life than on Earth. Now that I literally feel what it’s like in the ship, I tend to appreciate more, our beautiful Earth. Where we breathe clean not recycled oxygen everyday. Simple as that – I appreciate now.
I felt really excited when Elder and Amy finally come together. But for some reasons I kinda blame myself that I read this book too early haha because the next book will be out NEXT YEAR. NEXT YEAR. Yes. THAT long. I know!! I can’t wait to have it read now! I gotta wait for Shades of Earth!
And oh, happy day for me today – EXAM IS OVER! I have many spare times now for reading!!
Amy. Oh Amy. She’s a clever young girl!! Same goes to Elder. Both are a great team! Solving mysteries that I found pretty hard to solve. I kinda think Amy likes Maths. Really. She just loves mysteries with codes and stuff! I love this book for this! Really a suspense in a way. Riveting story indeed! You just can’t. Oh my I can’t even get my eyes off the book, all I know was ‘I HAVE TO KEEP READING THIS. IT’S SO GOOD. I HAVE TO. I WANT TO.’ I’m so captivated by the story.
On the other hand, Elder’s character is an interesting one. I…don’t think I got one friend that sounded like him or much less, acts the way he does. He’s all different. Smart but he needs confidence especially when he’s got people on his shoulder to look after and well, he’s ruling this people. He is the leader of the people in Godspeed. He lacks of confidence. But he’s doing pretty fine. I still love Elder. Aw.
Hahah the language of shipborns is hilarious! They have word like, “shite, frex,” hahah these two cusses are famous on board it almost sound funny, I mean it is funny to me!! HAHAHA OH FREX! WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR 2013 for Shades of Earth?!
I keep thinking if this happen to us, I don’t think I’ll survive. I’ll really commit suicide and just fly in the space. In the coldest temperature. For me, I just want EARTH, EARTH. My home.
SO people, take care of Mother Nature now or else. My oh my, or else. If you don’t want to go to another habitable planet, better consider what you do every single day now. Are you reducing the use of electricity? These small acts will make a big difference. Play your part.
I’ll end off this review with a huge happy face giving this book 5 STARS! I recommend this book to all readers!
Happy reading bookworms!
There are a few quotes from the book that I really love: “…I can’t forget the way my heart stopped when his did.”
“Choice or no, my heart is his.”
“But Amy,” Elder says. “Space suits!”" <– hahah this one's really hilarious!! Elder sounds like a kid who wants only a lollipop or something!
“Just because we’re the only two teenagers on this whole ship doesn’t mean I have to love you. Why can’t I have a choice? Options?” ….. “Love without choice isn’t love at all. Just that I don’t want to be with you just because there’s no one else.”
Shades of Earth – Looking forward to read you!!
