Chat about... Across The Universe by Beth Revis em The SF&F Book Chat (Abril 2012)

Críticas

Choose your own adventure, without the options to choose. It's that predictable. Every twist, every shocker can be predicted chapters ahead. Hell, the "twist" at the end, the mystery of it all, can be guessed about 10 chapters in (there's a lot of them).

Hell, you probably guessed it in book 2. Yup, Earth sent more ships in the 300 years they were "stranded" in orbit. Yup, Earth made Centauri theirs. Yup, they're the enemy. Yup, it works out in the end. Or atleast for a decade. Yup, Elder gets laid. Yup, that guy is a mole. We get it because you mention the guy's eyes every 10 pages. Yup, the author makes a fuzz about it. Yup, 70% of the book is meaningless romantic crap between two teenagers. Authors, don't do this unless it actually has something to bring to the table. We get it, they're a couple. It happened in the last book.

Oh, and you need to stop this him/her/him/her/... chapter bull. It's annoying and adds nothing. Tell a story.

YA Sci-Fi/mystery/romance. Cool concept and interesting mystery but I wasn't thrilled by how quickly things wrapped up at the end. I want to know what happens next --- maybe there is a sequel in the works?

If the mix of genres appeals to you you'll probably enjoy it. I'd go library on this one not purchase.

This book was very nice, and easy to read. I had some trouble putting the book away at times. The story is good, and so is the development of the main characters.

There is books that just give certain warm feeling. Purely subjective, purely "right moment in the life". That is one of those for me.

Also... I can't deny that presentation of complex things like truth and lies of individuality and society in such simplified form is one of the pleasures for the tired and bored mind of "seen it all". Adult books are boring without YA salt now.
