Staff Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Reviewer: Library Associate Tricia Price

Why I liked this book: It’s interesting to think about what life would be like aboard a spaceship making a three hundred year journey to colonize a new planet. The story is told by Elder, who was born on the ship and knows no other life, and Amy, who was supposed to be cryogenically frozen the whole time so she could wake up on Centauri Earth and start a new life. Someone has woken her up early, and they have to figure out who and why. This is a fascinating read for sci-fi fans and mystery fans alike.

Three words that describe this book: page-turner, thought-provoking, dystopian

You might pick up this book if… you enjoy dystopian books, sci-fi, or mysteries.
