SummaryAdd a Summary
Amy was born on Earth, sometime in the not-so-distant-future. The world is on the verge of an economic collapse and a ship christened Godspeed has been sent across the universe to a planet names Centauri-Earth in the hopes that people will be able to colonize this planet. The voyage is supposed to take 300 years and so a group of scientists and military personnel are frozen before the voyage begins. These people will be awakened when the ship reaches its destination and will colonize it. Amy's parents were chosen to be frozen and sent on this journey. Amy goes with them as one of the few nonessential passengers stowed in the cargo bay for 300 years. But she is woken up abruptly, 50 years before she is supposed to. The ship is now ruled by Eldest, a cruel but efficient dictator who controls those aboard the ship by lying to and sedating them. She becomes friends with Eldest's teenage son and heir, Elder, and the two try to figure out who woke her up, and why. ---See my full review here: http://throughthebookvine.blogspot.com/2011/03/across-universe.html
NoticesAdd a Notice
Sexual Content: Graphic scene where a character is almost raped (gets away just, literally, seconds before) and due to hormones in water people mate in the streets like animals. Not for children.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Peril throughout the book, elderly are euthanized like animals, and population treated like simpletons, even though they are. In addition, the book's plot revolves around a string of murders and a character is almost raped.
Coarse Language: Common swear words, including a very creative 'future version' of the f-word created by the author.
