The Premise: Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone - one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship - tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.
Now, Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.
Cover Commentary: This is one of the stunning covers of this year, look at this beauty, it's totally gorgeous!
Commentary: When I first saw the cover of this book, I said,"I must read this book as soon as possible!" because I know that I would like it. I wasn't wrong, I loveee this book!=) I love reading science fiction novels and this one as being a YA dystopian science fiction novel, I can hardly thing anything else better than this.
The subject of the book is an interesting and catching story that you can hardly put the book aside. I want to read it all the time and finally finished it in a very short time. I love the plot, the characters--especially Harley=))--and the atmosphere. Actually the atmosphere is very dark and clostrophobic which can be dangerous for some people as it is very realistic=) and that's why I love this book so much.
The plot is mysterious and also the characters. You try to find who is the guilty one by examining all the characters. This makes you feel like you are a detective searching for the truth. Beth Revis is a very clever writer who keeps the novel mysterious from the begining till the end.
One of the best things about this book is that you can see the inside of the spaceship from its picture. I love it! Godspeed is one of the best ships that I've read in science fiction books, I love seeing where the characters move in the ship through the picture.
I recommend this book to everyone who loves reading science fiction and dystopian novels.
