Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Yet another first in the series books. And yet, this one was different. I’m not hanging on the edge of my seat, wishing the next one would come out already.

Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to read the next part of the story. But the end of this book was just so…good. There was enough of a conclusion where I’m not ripping my hair out wanting to know what happens, but I’m invested enough in the story to run out and get the next book as soon as I can.

Elder and Amy’s relationship confuses me a little, in that I can understand Elder’s fascination with her, but I’m not sure yet how it can turn into something more in a believable way. I’m looking forward to seeing if Revis can accomplish this.

I give major props to Revis for coming up with a storyline that is unique, and yet not so different that everyone is struggling to find a way to connect. There’s enough of the classics within the book that it’s easy to find a way to connect with a character and find the story possible and believable.

It was a little frustrating how Elder simply believed Eldest without any questions, but I can see why he would. He grew up knowing nothing different, but he does start to question authority and it’s refreshing once he does.

Overall, a great book and I can’t wait to see how Revis handles more of the future.
