Happy 1-11-11 Across the Universe Day! Today is the official launch day for the eagerly anticipated sci-fi novel Across the Universe by Beth Revis. I really enjoyed this book; it is a thrilling, unique novel that takes place on a space ship called Godspeed. On the book jacket it is described as Titanic meets Brave New World and I would say that is an accurate description. Check out my review here.
In celebration of the launch Penguin Teen has put together a lot of fun goodies to enhance your enjoyment of Across the Universe.
First up is an exclusive author video featuring Beth Revis:
The Across the Universe official website is also launching today. Take a look and explore the spaceship Godspeed. If I were on the ship I would want to hang out with the cool people in the psych ward. I would also like to check out the stars on the Keeper level, and walk through the gardens. And I would travel around the ship in style using the Grav tube.
After exploring the website you can read a 111 page excerpt from Across the Universe exclusively on io9 starting at 11:11 AM Eastern time. The excerpt will be live until 11:11 PM Eastern time.
Here is a look at the Across the Universe book trailer:
