The book was definitely interesting, there's no question there, but it somehow wasn't as strong as I thought it would be. I found myself glued to it and they I was looking more at the ending that what was happening in the present.
I loved it because of the mystery. Because of all the running around and the idea and because of how Elder and Amy were fighting for control.
I was surprised to see Elder step up and try so hard but I was more surprised by what was actually happening at the ship. I can't believe that the people there would condemn themselves like that because that's what they were doing by leaving their abandoning their responsibilities.
And I guess I was just shocked that everyone turned up against the only person on that ship that was trying to save them... to find a way to make them move.
I was a bit pissed of by Amy and her outbursts but that was only by the end of the book and I get where she's coming from. I get that she's anxious to be reunited with her family and that the ship is like a cage for her but couldn't he be happy that she's alive...
It's not that I don't like her, I do, but there were a few moments when I just wanted to choke her.
I hated how just when a new clue turned up and Elder and Amy weren't at the same place at the same time, how I had to wait through the whole chapter to see what happens with the clue... I just didn't like all the jumping around from P.O.V to P.O.V when the characters were separated. Of course I disapproved just for a little while because then something even more interesting would happen in that P.O.V and I would lose my disapproval...
There were a lot answers in this book. I like how almost everything became clear in the end. I like the honesty from Elder and how the decision to leave Godspeed was made. The events of book one set a chain reaction and everything was very different now for better or worse.
I disliked the ending. It came way too sudden and I didn't want it to end. I wanted to see what happens next but I guess this is a story for another book so I'll be awaiting that one anxiously. This one with it's strong and weak spots was a very interesting read.
All in all, I enjoyed it and I can't wait for the next one!
