Publisher's Summary

Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.

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 best-selling 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.

    Story
    "More Annoying Than Thrilling"

    I liked the first book - with the caveat that I had to suspend disbelief quite a few times. Others have describe a plot so holey as to be swiss cheese, and I felt the same way. This book really frustrates with those plot holes.

    i think this would have been a much better series had the author taken her time and really figured out the story better (or had more proactive editors watching plot holes). The best way to describe all 3 books is that the villain is patently obvious in each one by the reasons why they are doing what they are tends to not be as obvious.

    But this second book was frustrating enough that I spent most of my time rolling my eyes at the way it was written. Characters do inexplicable things, for no particular reason, all to push the plot. Stupid cliches, such as 'mystery within clues' etc., are just so pointless when there is so much at stake. Then let's not mention having a boyfriend who runs the entire place and not telling him about rapes so he can fix it. Or him suddenly deciding he's not upset his gf was nearly rapted and friends killed by the same guy (after the rapist is taken care of by the leader doesn't know it).

    Let's face it - this is filler and an attempt to find a story to bridge to the third book. To me, this story only needed to be two books.

    The narrators were fine. They put a lot of emotion into their storytelling.

    Story
    "I have to wait how long for book 3??"

    I'll make this short. I assume you've read the first book in the series, so you understand about the frozen scientists traveling to a new planet in a ship full of worker bees. Elder is the leader of the worker bees (the citizens of the ship). You might remember from the first book that something was not quite right. A BIG problem was revealed at the end. In this second book, Elder works to find a solution to the problem, all the while unveiling all kinds of exciting twists and turns in the plot.

    Should you read book 2?

    No!

    You have to wait until January to read it, because when you are finished you are going to tear your hair out wanting to read the next book. So yes, of course you should read it (or listen to it, in this case), but do yourself a favor and pace yourself. Book 3 comes out in January 2013. Why not read both at the same time? :-)

    "Why did they change the narrators?"
    What did you like best about A Million Suns? What did you like least?

    Loved the story, hated the two new narrators, especially Lucas Salvano.He talks with NO emotions at all. His voice was the perfect sleeping aid, couldn't get over 5 min. Finally I bought the book and stopped listening. Why do you change the narrators in the middle of a series??

    I love to read books; and now just recently I've discovered that audio books are very cool!! I'm also an author. You can find the SciFi book "The Curse of Europa" here on Audible or on Amazon.

    Story
    "Male reader in mid 40's"
    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I knew this was teen / young adult going in. I really enjoyed the first book and thought it was extremely well done and crossed beyond the Teen/YA boundary to hold it's own in the more mature market as well.

    I however was not as pleased with this second book. The whole tone changed a little bit making me wonder if an editor worked hard with Revis to make the first book appeal to a larger audience, but didn't work as hard on this second book. Its feel became a lot more teen based and the whole scavenger hunt thing didn't appeal to me that much.

    Again, I know I'm reviewing a teen/YA book, so please bear this in mind with my review. If you are a teen/YA reader, it may very well appeal to you. But for the slightly older crowd (for me anyhow) I did not like this book as much as the first and it seemed to drag on.

    The narrators changed also, which never helps with the flow of a book series.

    Story
    "Not crazy about the male narrator!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The male narrator's voice is a great sleep aid! There's never any inflection in his voice. He bored me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything! The story is wonderful! I feel like I can't listen fast enough to get to what happens next.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tara Carrozza’s performances?

    Sure. I liked her narration.


    Could you see A Million Suns being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Absolutely! I would love to see how this story is portrayed on film. As far as the cast, goes... I think I'd like to see some unknowns play the lead characters.

    Story
    "Across the Universe Book 2"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you loved Across the Universe you will love this book. It continues the story so well that it really should be one book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I some part of the mind you think, "this could really happen, somewhere in time".


    What about Tara Carrozza’s performance did you like?

    The way they took turns at each chapter male then female.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book gave me a great escape and a pause to think that the future could be as interesting as the past.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this series of books to anyone and everyone.

    Story
    "Hate it when there are different narrators"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Million Suns to be better than the print version?

    No, I think I would like to "hear it in my head" with my own version of Elder and Amy


    What did you like best about this story?

    different twist on the same old dystrophic love story


    Did Tara Carrozza do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Tara did a good job but the I didn't like the narrator for Elder, he sounded too old for a supposed 16yr old.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Overall I liked the book and the narrator's weren't horrible but I liked the narrators from the 1st book

    Story
    "finished in 2 days, could not put it down"
    Would you listen to A Million Suns again? Why?

    yes. I loved the two books in this trilogy a lot and did not want it to end. I was worried at first that it would be another sci fi book with too much techno babel, but no this was perfection


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator on both books did an awesome jobs. In the way it was written it was easy to follow and a pleasure read. very exciting and I cannot wait until the third book. I hope I don't have to wait a year for it.
