Paul's March Pick: A Million Suns

I finished Jane Lynch's biography, loved it, and am now ready to go on to my March pick. This novel is a sequel to one of the earlier books we read for this blog, Across the Universe. I am excited to see what the Godspeed is up to now.

Title: A Million Suns
Author: Beth Revis
Year Published: 2012
"Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos. It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies. But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart. In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship." (Amazon)

Why?: Revis created a unique world in Across the Universe. I am excited to rejoin that world aboard a ship tumbling through space. I am excited to see where the characters will develop from here.

Expectations:I have high expectations, but I think they will be matched. I am looking for more character growth and interesting twists about the ship and its history.
Judging a book by its cover:The cover shows the two leads looking out of the ship into the vastness of space. I expect the world both inside and out of the ship will be a big part of this novel.
