These Broken Stars Book Review

These Broken Stars - Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner

This is really quite a beautiful book. It reminds me of Across The Universe but so much better written. The descriptions, the characters just made you feel utterly transported.

 

Their ship has crashed, everyone they know is dead. The two of them must survive on an unknown planet with no signs of life.

 

Travers, a decorative war hero. Lilac the daughter of their leader. Anyone who comes near her can be a threat. The two so very different from each other are now facing survival. The only ones left.

 

I really did enjoy most of this book...but the ending left me feeling disappointed. It was somewhat bizarre and felt out of place to me. I find it hard to believe that this story can continue on into two more books and almost feel that it'd be better left off as a stand-a-lone. Though, I'll probably eventually read book two just to see where it leads...
