Wow. Definitely different. Can't say I've read a book quite like it... well, ever. I'm not usually a sci-fi reader but Across the Universe (to my surprise) kept my interest and pages were flying.

I sort of caught on to the 'who' who was behind the murders which was a bit disappointing, so the revelation was a bit anti-climatic, but other bits and pieces I didn't see coming definitely made up for it.

If I'm being honest, I was a tad unsatisfied with the ending, BUT only just discovered this is book one if a trilogy. That being said, the ending leaves things open and I really do look forward to seeing where things go from here. All in all, a page turner. Unique. Extremely well written (and crafted), I can't imagine how a mind like the Beth Revis has must work, wow.
