WOW!! That is what I have to say after finishing this book…WOW! While I was vigorously searching for new books to read I happened stumbled upon this Across the Universe on Goodreads, it was recommended to me based on all the previous Dystopian books I have read. I also watched a bunch of YouTube that got me really excited to read this book!
Across The Universe begins, it takes place present day. NASA has built an colossal spaceship named “Godspeed”. “Godspeed” is built to house cryogenically frozen “Essentials” (marines, scientists, government officials, biologists, etc.), and send them to the “New Earth” they’ve discovered, where they will be unfrozen and used to help colonize the new planet into one like our Earth (think Wall-E). The trip to the new Earth is predicted to take exactly 300 years.
