Good job, I'm glad you liked SOME things about the book.
Thanks. I couldn't stand the motives of the main characters. And I couldn't stand how idiotic Amy comes across. And when someone comes across as that blatantly dumb I can't find them believable. I am reading the next one, though.
I liked this book overall, but Amy irritated me like I couldn't believe for most of the book. The entire reason she had the option to be frozen was because her parents were a big deal. That being so, you'd think she'd know how to act around people. I am planning to read the next one though, but I hope that she is more tolerable. Congrats on all in one take!!
Glad to know you didn't like her either. I am going to read the next one, but not because I hope she's going to be more tolerable: I'm going to read it with hopes that she ends up being blown out of an airlock.Thank you!
1. First of all, I'm a fan as always. I don't edit either on rare occasions when I do these things. 2. I felt the claustrophobia. I even mentioned that in my blog post from WAY back in June. So yay for that. 3. I read A Million Suns in one day, pretty much, and I hope you are open to it because it blew me away. And it pretty much blew Across the Universe wide open. 4. THANKYOU x1000 for your help yesterday. You pretty much made the entire book make sense because of what I had forgotten.
1. Thank you. I just don't want to create more work for myself. 2. Yeah... she does a great job of making things feel cramped. 3. I already have the sequel loaded onto my Kindle. 4. You're welcome!
Hey there, new reader here. :) Loved your video review. I'm glad I'm not the only person in the world that didn't like this book (because it feels like everyone is in luurrvvee with it). My #1 problem with the book (aside from the main characters, whose motivations and stupidity bugged me as much as you) was that the book didn't follow physics. How the hell can a spaceship slow down in space? There's no friction in space! For a science fiction novel, that was a significant lack of science.
Thank you! I'm not understanding the appeal, but will be reading the sequel. I did notice that. I left it out because of possible spoilers: technically they shouldn't have to worry about speeding up, they should be worried about not slowing down. But I enjoy Star Trek and that doesn't follow standard physics at all, so to each their own.
Ahh this is true. Maybe it's because Star Trek has so much more going for it that it's easier to forgive it for its lack of 'real' physics. AtU on the other hand was less appealing which probably made me more picky. :)
Love the video review, and bravo on the one take!! I have to say, this was my least favorite dystopian of all. I agree with you on the characters. Amy is a tad annoying and I usually find something I find appealing in the male lead...and I just don't in him. I will say I'm glad you are reading the sequel because it is 10 times better!!!!! :)
Thank you, thank you. Yeah... I just couldn't like them. I will be giving A Million Suns a chance. Not any time soon, though.
I'm surprised you gave it a 3 out of 5 since you seem to not like it. What are you giving it 3 for?
The characters were the only thing that ruined the experience for me. The writing and the concept were both solid, and Beth Revis' concept of a generational ship with a monoethnic culture (while not the most original idea) was executed perfectly. Her writing style isn't bad either.
Jeez, too bad a fun concept was partially ruined by an annoying character. Still, I'm intrigued. (And I finally got caught up on all your vlogs, which are fabulous by the way! The dino furious over his inability to drink his coffee is the BEST thing EVER.)
Yep. I am still intrigued enough to want to see where all of this is headed. It's why I didn't stop reading this one. So onto book number two for me. (I call him Coffasaurus by the way).
Now I feel bad for recommending this to you! Great video review!
No worries. There were some things I liked about it, some I didn't. Thanks!
