Warning: I use much terminology from the book. Terminology you will not get unless you've read it.
Frexing amazing! (You'll get it when you read the book)
Godspeed. Godspeed. What does the name imply to you? For me it implies God being speedy. Just kidding. For the people on this ship they think it simply means good luck (or something related to luck). The new generations on this ship don't believe in these "fairy tales" or what we refer to as religion. So does the name make sense? Just thought I'd put that out there.
Lets skedaddle (<-- wow that's not spelt how I assumed it was) onto the review, shall we?
I honestly do not know what to say. I'm speechless. Positively speechless. The whole idea and world crafted for this book was amazing. Thrilling. Exciting. Speedy (hehe). I am going to be right out honest and tell you I have never read a sci-fi novel before. My father being a sci-fi lover, and my house full of sci-fi books, I just never thought to pick one up and read it. I guess the idea of space just doesn't intrigue me as it did my father. Anyways, I am completely walking around the bush here, so let's continue on.
The entire book is told in either Amy's POV or Elder's POV. I must say I loved this about the book. The short (some) chapters and switching perspectives kept the story refreshing and new. I get tired of constantly reading a novel told by a girl. It gets dull after, er, I don't know, A GAZILLION BOOKS! Amy was still great though and I wasn't bothered by her POV. Elder was frexing awesome. Seriously he can season with me any day. Just kidding. The season was kind of gross, but still, any day Elder...
I'm not going to tell you what the story is about because goodreads already does a very good job of telling you about this book. I will tell you that there is a ginormous mystery a part of this book. Throughout the book I kept guessing who the killer might have been. Like Amy made a list on her wall, I made a list in my head. Scratched people off, added them again. It was so frexing thrilling!
I know what you're saying, "Chutz out Angela," but I can't! I loved this book with all my heart. Now I have a special place in my heart for all things Sci-Fi. Ahaha, I even watched Zenon on YouTube after reading this. I've been a little space-obsessed lately.
Anyways, I truly think you should check out this book. Don't let the Sci-Fi aspect of it turn you away. It will blow your mind right out to the stars.
Frexing 5 curly pig tails!
Chutz, stars and more frexing,
