There is nothing -seriously, Nothing- as a ride Across the Universe. I mean, you get to see *Stars*, entire galaxies, tons of stelar dust & two or three new species you didn't even EVER thought could exist.

So, here we go, with a little, creepy story:
When I was a little girl, about 8 years old, I got my first Geography book at school. So, I figured I would see ALL the stars & galaxies & stuff that's out there in the universe in its freaking awesomeness! Now, picture a 8 year old, super disappointed when I discovered all that came in the book were some random pictures & a childish sketch of the Solar System (with Pluto still on it, BTW. I'm that kind of old).
Oh, no. Even WORST, when I realized human kind did know nearly NOTHING about the Universe!

Well then, this book was this kind of disappointment, ALL OVER AGAIN. & even if I'm older now, this deception still hurts, deep inside. Like needles, you know?
IDK if I'll ever be able to trust a book that contains stars & universe stuff again.

*Elder is a STUPID, mindless asshole who can't see beyond his nose.
*Amy, okay, she stars it fine. But... yeah, Amy, life is hard, whether you live it on earth or a Universe-Crossing ship. GET OVER IT.
*Eldest, meh, he was fine. Whatever.
*Doc... nothing to say. Not good nor bad just...
*HARLEY, man you're the boos!! (The only character I was loving &... he goes full crazy).
*Orion, he was okay... but went full retard.

Is a shame that I got both books together. Now to read the next *...yey...*

Oh, & it was boring!
