#Read Book ì A Million Suns ã eBook or E-pub free

And here we are, in the middle, surrounded by a sea of stars.A million starsWhat an intriguing story. in a way, even intriguingly sad.This book finds us right where the first one left us Somewhere between Sol Earth and Centauri Earth, suspended in time and space.There is noPhydus to control the people around the ship and they are quite out of control People don t work, people start to fight, they suffer from depression.They start having feelings, they start thinking for themselves and the fact is that they don t know how to control those emotions desperation, fear of the unknown, even joy are all strange to them and, as we found out in the first book, they don t know how to deal with changes.In Across the Universe they were like machines hollow eyes and empty minds , doing their duties but not thinking at all Now they don t know how to become human again You would think that humanity can be passed through the genes, but this story makes you wonder if that s really true.But then again, what is humanity if at the first sign of crisis people start panicking and they only know how to deal with their problems through violence What would sane people do Get the ship running and get to the new Earth for once, but this is not the case, because it is so easy to point to the things that go wrong, but it is harder to give a hand and make them right again.I realize now that they ve never needed a leader to lead them they just need someone to blame for what goes wrong there is no food, people are not working who could possibly be the responsible for this Elder of course and if it s not him them the redheaded freak Instead of helping they just lay around in a pool of laziness and complain like stupid monkeys they are sorry if I m harsh, but it is true, and I hate humans with no brain between their ears.In the history of Godspeed other leaders had tried to tell the truth and people on board have gone ballistic trying to tear the ship apart Then the Eldest system came into play and they tried to hide the truth with great sacrifices of even lives and they ended with their younger selves turned against them think Orion and Elder.These days Elder is trying the middle path, but there are too many bumps in his the road, and he is young and he has no one to give him advices, and everywhere he turns his head he sees people trying to hide things from him or to revolt against his willI don t need this I roar Not from you too I don t need you telling me what to do or that I m not good enoughI was surprise to see how much truth lies between these pages.I am ashamed to realize how humans can react in difficult situation, how easily they lose their humanity, their faith, their hope, how selfish and narrow minded they are, how their are unable to see outside the box you see the irony here , how they could kill to prevent others from knowing the truth, how they could turn one against the other without second thoughts I have no doubts that if we were to live on a ship like this one, people would do all those things and some . how sad is that, right The book felt a bit like the usual second book in a series, a good transition to the next one, with enough action to keep you entertained but without the wow feeling from the first one I expected for those things to happen the way they did, as after finishing the first book I knew that if they were to give up on Phyrus, then chaos would be there to embrace them all In a way I can understand how the people on Goodspeed felt. They have been safe all their life in their golden cage They don t know how to fight or to survive in an open environment, they had it all without putting too much effort into getting it, and they were now afraid to lose it all to lose that illusion of safety, security, normality.But that doesn t make it right, that doesn t mean they shouldn t want something better for them, that doesn t mean that they have the right to do the things they did, because it s all about choice s and the freedom to chose.And that s why I liked Elder so much because he understood that.I can t tell you much about the story, but I will tell you that the videos seemed to be a bit too convenient, and even though at the end I could see the pieces of the puzzle fit togetheror less , there were some things that I couldn t completely believe Still, the ending was the one I expected and now I can t wait to see what adventures awaits for them in the next book.AmyI think there is no one on the ship that has lostthan she did She doesn t have a home any, her parents are still frozen and she is not allowed to bring them back to life, everyone hates her on this ship and she doesn t even know if she ll get to land on a planet ever again She misses Earth like crazy and she wants so badly to get to Centaury Earth Her only friend is Elder but he is too busy running this ship She finds herself searching for clues left behind by Orion and she wants to find the truth he has been hiding, because he says that she is the only one to make THE decision they ll have to make one dayI am the only one who truly misses them Of all the two thousand whatever people on this ship, I m the only one who knows what it is to lie in the grass in your backyard and reach up to capture fireflies floating lazily through the stars I m the only one who knows that day should fade into night, not just clicking on and off with a switch I m the one who s ever opened her eyes as wide as she can and still see only the heavensElderHe was just a kid when he started to get prepared to lead the people on Goodspeed His tutor died too soon and he knows that he is not prepared for this job He lacks authority and he struggles to solve all the problems running from one to the other, fighting against the people he is trying to help, but in this crazy mess he starts to grow up, as a person and as a leader He starts to realize that if he is the leader he has to act like one He makes mistakes, but he also takes good measures in some difficult moments, and by the ending, even though he is still not sure that he is the right leader his people need, he is there for them, leading them homeI see the stars as a part of the universe, and having spent my life behind walls, suddenly having none fills me with both awe and terror Emotion courses through my veins, choking me I feel so insignificant, a tiny speck surrounded by a million stars.A million starsTheir love is sweet.Even though Amy has a hard time forgiving him for awaking her the way he did, the moment he did, all the actions from the first book made their friendship grow and now it is time for them to realize that there are other feelings in their heart, for each other They both need to be loved and to love as well.Maybe Amy doesn t have other options. Elder is the only guy at her age and maybe she wouldn t have liked him in her past life, on Eath, but they are here now, together, and sooner or later they had to realize that love can simply happen, and it feels even better when you let yourself enjoy itI would do anything to make her happy again, so I give her the starsNow I wonder. Was it worth it The truth, the deaths, the fear, not knowing what will await for them. All that struggle to keep the ship together when everyone turned against the only person that was trying to really help them. When the truth can kill, when the truth cannot be handled, when the truth is too big, when it surrounds you and you choke on it. Is this feeling worth it Of being closer to home hoping to see the birds, the sky, the two suns, the rivers wanting to feel the heat of a real sun, the brize of a real wind, the cold of drops of rain Is it What do you think When you have to make sacrifices, to leave behinds things that you cherish, when you can die for following your dreams, when you give up prison for a freedom that you have never known and still don t know what it might bring to you and your people It s worth it, right And I guess that we will find out soon but still not soon enough This review can also be found at ReadingAfterMidnight.comBlog EN Facebook Twitter Tumblr Bloglovin Blog RO I feel like nothing of what I read in the first book matters Discovering some of Orion s secrets was important, but a lot of the revelations turned out to be either wrong or unimpressive.And yet, I still preferred the first book to this one I loved the mystery, getting to know the characters and learning about the world building, plus I found Amy s inner thoughts lovely In A MILLION SUNS, we realize that everything we ve learned so far is incomplete or simply bad information.This book focuses on Elder becoming a true leader Eldest and Amy taking charge of her own destiny by trying to find out the truth about Godspeed and the planet they re supposed to inhabit There s much mayhem among the ship population Now that they re not drugged any, they can actually think for themselves Unfortunately, two people may not think alike So there s mutiny and plain chaos Some wars I find captivatingly complex and deceptive Godspeed s rebellion is very amateur ish Makes sense, since none of these people ever knew rebellion before, so they re not skilled to act and think like a soldier, but I simply could not take it seriously It s still a surprising book, seeing that there s still information to be uncovered and characters to learn the names of and romance to develop, but I am nonetheless slightly disappointed A fast paced book, though, that s for sure Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin #Read Book Þ A Million Suns ë Godspeed Was Once 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 Everywhere She Looks, She Sees The Walls Of The Spaceship GodspeedBut There May Be Hope Elder Has Assumed Leadership Of The Ship He S Finally Free To Act On His Vision No Phydus, No LiesBut When Elder Learns Shocking News About The Ship, He And Amy Race To Discover The Truth Behind Life On Godspeed They Must Work Together To Unlock A Mystery That Was Set In Motion Hundreds Of Years Earlier Their Success Or Failure Will Determine The Fate Of The , Passengers Aboard Godspeed But With Each Step, The Journey Becomes Perilous, The Ship Chaotic, And The Love Between Them Impossible To FightBeth Revis Catapulted Readers Into The Far Reaches Of Space With Her New York Times Bestselling Debut, Across The Universe In A Million Suns, Beth Deepens The Mystery 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 Espa ol EnglishLa posibilidad de la vida en otros planetas es un tema que siempre me ha apasionado Recuerdo c mo a os atr s era uno de mis temas de discusi n favoritos Lo principal de estos libros me gusta una nave llena de humanos, viviendo generaci n tras generaci n para llegar a un nuevo planeta Lo que no me gustan son los personajes principales Elder tan indeciso en su forma de gobernar la nave, que ha hecho que la gente se revele contra el Amy quiere que todas las cosas se hagan a su manera y ejerce su influencia sobre Elder, no siempre positivamente Quiere que Elder deje todas sus responsabilidades a un lado para que est con ella Encima de todo lo que est pasando en la nave, hay un nuevo asesino, quien desde el principio para m fue evidente qui n era.Siguiendo las pistas de Orion, Amy y Elder encuentran una informaci n que podr cambiar el futuro de todos en la nave The possibility of life on other planets is a subject that has always fascinated me I remember years ago it was one of my favorite discussion topics.The main thing about these books I like a ship full of humans, living generation after generation to reach a new planet What I do not like are the main characters Elder so indecisive in his way of governing the ship, which has made people rebel against him Amy wants all things done her way and exerts her influence over Elder, not always positively She wants Elder to leave all his responsibilities aside so he can be with her.On top of everything that is happening in the ship, there is a new murderer, who from the beginning for me was clear who he was.Following the tracks of Orion, Amy and Elder find information that can change the future of everyone in the ship. What I love the most about this book is the idea of it Frozen people being transported to another planet, while others live on a spaceship and make sure it reaches the destination I avoid sci fi sometimes because I feel like they re dry, but this trilogy is not I readAcross the Universe a long time ago and dived in this book with only remembering the main plot and while I did enjoy it, I had many inconsistent thoughts about it I m not going into details since it s better to read this book not knowing much about it so I m keeping it spoiler free.My main problem was with Amy, the girl annoyed me so much Even though I liked Elder, it wasn t enough I didn t see 3 dimensional characters, Elder was an exception but even not all the time Sometimes, I couldn t share their feelings I did, however, enjoy their attempts to solve the mystery I wanted to know the secret and the culprit so badly Elder is without doubt, my favorite character in these 2 installments He s always putting everyone before him and doing whatever he can to make things better, not many saw that, though Not even Amy soemtimes and sadly,, that wasn t enough to cover her sselfishness I know her life was far from being easy on Godspeed, but couldn t she stop blaming Elder for everything Maybe she needed someone to blame but can t she imagine what he was going through Like trying to prevent a rebellion and dealing with the ship s problems She wants him to choose her first and he did She couldn t see that She only saw what he did toward the end and I completely support him Amy was so selfish sometimes, yes her parents are still freezing, someone wants to attack her but she s here now, complaining won t help She was immature and while Revis was trying to make her something, she looked so plain, so simple, nothing made her stand out from the usual YA heroines Honestly, I would have given this book 4 stars if it wasn t for her stubborn illogical defiance and accusation for Elder in his last chapter To be fair, I admired her for questioning the truth, for her doubt and curiosity That being said, I finished this book in no time considering I have finals at the moment It was enjoyable but not perfect It will make you pose some ethical questions Don t expect romance because you won t find any The characters could have been way better but I can only hope we ll have some character development in Shades of Earth I know I ll be reading it soon. One way to describe this book forgettable I think the story would have been way better if first two books were combined into one standalone novel and the third would have been cut out altogether Only then do we get a complete story, with some character development and something that resembles a plot I don t understand the need to stretch out a story over several different books just for the sake of having a trilogy There is no trilogy material here Why, Beth Revis, why Una historia maravillosa, que atrapa desde la primera p gina, cada cap tulo esta lleno de sorpresas y descubrimientos Entre m s avanzas mas quieres leer, mas cosas necesitas descubrir y mas metido estas en la historia.Ya quiero leer el libro final de esta sagaRese a Completa 4.5 stars Actual rating 3.5 starsI ve been really eager to read A Million Suns for a while now I m a Sci Fi geek and I m not afraid to admit that Hear that, Kennedy I m owning that So I think, in a way, I am prone to getting swept away with this series And just as with Across the Universe, I was immediately sucked into the story, walking around my house with my face glued to the book, sitting on the edge of my seat trying to figure out the mysteries surrounding Godspeed Because if there is one thing Revis does right, it s anticipation.I struggled with deciding what to rate this book On one hand I really liked it much better than Across the Universe, but on the other hand the ending let me down a bit I suppose I should back track a bit and actually talk about the things I loved first Be warned the second half of the review will have spoilers.The best part of the book was the plot and pacing Elder is trying to maintain peace, but the people are making that very difficult After being enslaved to Phydus for years, some are depressed, rebellious and paranoid A few citizens prey on those emotions and cause doubt of Elder s ability to lead the people The result Chaos and not the beautiful kind This puts Amy in a very precarious situation because the people blame her for their downward spiral But Amy and Elder have another issue to handle after Amy discovers Orion has left clues to the Godspeed s biggest secret I really liked how it felt like the reader s job to help Amy and Elder solve the mystery because this book is very fast paced The sense of urgency is definitely there throughout the entire novel, never letting the reader catch his her breath I also really liked the character growth from Elder In Across the Universe he was very unsure of himself and for a moment he is that way in the beginning of A Million Suns, but you get to see him grow a back bone along with a matching pair of gonads This made me really happy because let s be honest, it was about freakin time We also get a chance to see Amy work her way through the personal issue on how she feels about Elder She struggles with this at first because she isn t sure she is in love with him since they are the only two teenagers She questions whether it is really love when you don t have any other choices I would have liked to seedevelopment from Amy besides whether she wanted to be with Elder or not.And that leads us into the bad spoilers ahead What really ticked me off with this book was the ending Everything was going perfectly well until the villain and the ship s secret were revealed Orion has left Amy a series of video recordings of this huge secret he is sitting on and he tells her only she can make this choice and how it is such a huge decisionyada, yada, yada That s great Really I can totally get down with that What I can t get down with is the actual secret view spoiler We find out that Godspeed has actually been at the new planet since the plague popped up generations ago But they haven t landed because planet scans reveal that whatever lives on the planet isn t friendly and they will probably have to go to war once they land So the Elder system and Phydus were created to keep the people in check and prevent anyone from finding out the truth So for all those years, Godspeed has just been orbiting around the new planet All the while the food supply is quickly dwindling and the ship is falling apart But what I don t understand is why they didn t communicate with Earth and GO HOME Whose brilliant idea was it to stay on the ship that is falling apart FOREVER hide spoiler It s been a while since I finished Across the Universe and gave it a mostly positive review Since then, I have changed a lot, read manybooks, and my expectations and standards have become higher Asandtime has been put between my finishing Across the Universe and starting A Million Suns, I ve been wondering if I would be quite so forgiving of some of the issues I had in the first book if I were to read it again now You see, despite the pretty sparkly covers, it is the characters and relationships that are lacking for me In terms of sci fi, I actually think these books are really good.When it comes to proper science fiction space, aliens, etc I have a bit of a love hate relationship with it I m fascinated by the idea of life on other planets, of exploring the universe and discovering all its secrets but most of it feels a little cold and emotionless Forgive me, but one theory I have is that a large portion of it is written by men as two sci fi authors I do love are Margaret Atwood and Ursula K Le Guin and quite a few of them yes, I know, not all of them tend to write your typical boy sci fi scary aliens, big guns, and intergalactic battles There s not enough exploration of ideas that could happen in humanity s future This is the side of Revis series that I love Imagine being a part of the human race a few centuries into the future, imagine that we ve discovered a planet that could sustain life, and imagine that there s a plan to get there on a huge ship where certain individuals will be frozen until arrival, and others will live on the ship and reproduce for the several hundred years it would take to get there Imagine that things don t go quite to plan and those living on the ship start to find the dark secrets locked away behind hidden doors This is the story being told here and I love love love this idea There s mysteries that kept me guessing, moral and ethical dilemmas that tear friendships apart, and there is hardly any romance I know, it s hard to believe Look at the covers, look at the taglines, the blurb describing how Amy is torn between her feelings for Elder and the chaos that s pulling everything apart this is such bad marketing when these books are 100% sci fi with the barest suggestion of romance between the two main characters.And yes, the characters They are what stops this book and the one before it from being excellent Elder and Amy have flat, drab personalities that I can t even find words to describe because how do you describe nothing Okay, maybe that s a slight exaggeration But I should be inside Elder s head feeling his frustration over what s happening to the ship, his anger, his worry he has so much going on his life that it s impossible for him not to be experiencing some severe emotional turmoil, and yet I never got that Same with Amy she is battling between the desire to wake her frozen parents up and the knowledge that if she does they won t have a chance of getting to the planet and starting a new life I should feel her sadness, but I don t It s really bad when a novel is written in 1st person from two points of view and I feel disconnected from both of them.If you re wondering whether you should read this series or not, you need to ask yourself what s most important good characters or an action packed and thought provoking plot If you said the latter, you ll probably love it If you need a strong connection to the characters, you may struggle with this.
