When I started to read this book I find it confusing but when I read further more it holds my attention. The writing style is fantastic because it shows the two different prospective from the two lead characters. And since it was set in the future, a lot of things were manifested in the plot that’s beyond my imagination. I love the cover, it’s beautiful and carefully created that the cover itself can compel me to read it.
Beth picked the right set of characters that could really whisk the emotions of the readers weather you’ll love them, hate them or empathize like what I felt with Amy. Overall, the book has an emotional impact with me that after I finished it; I find myself just want to cry.
I love the proper timing of events and mysteries that gradually unfold that made the plot really enjoyable to read further. It’s hard to guess what will happen next and especially what would be the ending. A lot of things were kept in the dark and some of those secrets will be revealed in the sequel.
Beth didn’t practically focused in the romance part between Amy and Elder but instead the hint of attraction between them played a huge role to trigger to unfold those mysteries that envelopes Godspeed.
After I read Across the Universe, I was kept awake at night thinking back about the plot and I’ve been dreaming about the sequel.
