Well Said: Medicine

"I swallow, hard. Doc is a good man, but his answer to everything is always medicine. He doesn't like emotion, any emotion. He prefers things quiet, controlled." - Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Taglines: "What does it take to survive aboard a spaceship fueled by lies?" & "Across the Universe is Titanic meets Brave New World."
Thoughts: So far I am completely engrossed. The people are sheep, they lost communication with Earth during "the plague", and the creative people seem to be confined to a ward. I couldn't put this down if I wanted to.

  1. You know, as many times as I've seen that cover & I've never actually gotten it... today for some reason it finally clicked. UGH!
    This looks really good - I LOVED BNW! Maybe I should pull that one to read again. I can't wait to read Across the universe

  27. I know! I'm reading this one now, too! I just finished the two other books I was reading. I thought "I can't hold off reading Across the Universe any longer!" I started reading it last night. I was up till 1 am. I finally resigned to to the fact I needed sleep after much debate about reading one more chapter... LOL
