  1. SpoilersThis was pretty sad It focuses on Selene and the story behind her death I really wanted her to have a HEA because she had such a rubbish life she wasn t close with her parents, she was classed as mental so she had to live at the hospital, her friends left her out of everything, the boy she was in love with was obsessed with someone else and the boy Luthor that started paying her attention was an evil creep I didn t expect to like Selene so much, she was far relatable than Amy, who I ve [...]

  3. 2.75 5 It was OK I did really like knowing the background on the characters we get to know, but not quite, on the previous books And also meeting new characters that we didn t know were so involved in the story.At the beginning I was like Is this person really Luthor And by the end I was like Yes, that s Luthor.Interesting, but I could live without reading it.


  4. 4,5 I like this.Before you start reading I had done an idea of what he would try But it turned out that was wrong Very wrong.Your reader will assume as a simple story Lacking in depth And not This is not the typical short story to which we are accustomed, it s creepy and depressing I finished with chills, I swear.I m inpaciente for reading what we have prepared Beth Sorry for my English disastrous I need practice.

  6. This was a neat idea The author of one of my favorite series released a chapter of a day of her bonus novella the week before the release of the 3rd book in the Across the Universe series You just had to bounce around the web where she was guest blogging to get a new chapter each day However I hate to say This read like horrible fan fiction revisiting some of the lesser characters from previous books And of all characters I might have wanted to revisit, the insane rapist was not one of them And [...]


  7. I didn t LOVE this mini side story But I did like learning about the sprouting of Harley s and Kayleighs relationship It was heartbreaking to read about Harley since his death hit me so hard I didn t really care about the others, and that s probably why I didn t really find this short story amazing Still, I cried in the end I loved how Revis ended the story The whole time with Luther I was likeand then when he showed his true colors At least I died in a song HARLEY AND KAYLEIGH



  8. This was beautifully written and sad but wasn t long enough to have the full effect that it should have done.

  10. Wow I just finished reading As They Slip Away, and that s the only word I can think of If you re looking for something to read this weekend, this is it It s a 48 page novella in the Across the Universe series, the final book of which comes out in just a few days You can download the novella for free and transfer it to your Kindle or Nook, or you can simply read it on the website.The novella gives us a glimpse of both the most beloved character and the most despised character in the Across the Un [...]




  11. was pretty good, had some nice insight into characters i m seeing in A Million Suns.i didn t remember much from the first one of it came back to me when i started reading the second bookere were some MAJOR formatting issuesd throughout the book, the wall food is referred to as a meast pastyi thought that was a paste like meat substance, but in the seconf book, it s a meat pastRyry makes much senseere was a line break every 2 lines, whether it was a new paragraph or not, spaces before apostrophe [...]


  12. This is set before the main series starts, but is definitely one for the fans It features characters that we meet in the background of Across the Universe Of course Harley plays a part but this mainly focuses on Selene.Selene lives in the hospital wing where they are all classed as loons those with artistic talents get put there, they are now being given a chance to enhance their skills, some may serve a purpose on the ship later, as a singer Selene knows she is pretty useless but when Luthor st [...]


  13. It was so great to get to read this and step back into this world for just a moment It was also really interesting to see the world from Selene s perspective and see a different side of Harley and to meet some of the characters of the the story we didn t know.Luther That guy STILL sucks, though.


  14. A great little extra addition to the series It s Selene s story for the most part but also provides a bit of background on Elder s other friends as well Would recommend reading after A MILLION SUNS.


  15. As They Slip Away Across the Universe, 0.5 So creepy I don t even know if I want to read the rest of the series





  16. Despu s de tanto tiempo he decidido cerrar ciclos y es tiempo de terminar con la trilog a de Across the universe y que mejor que con esta peque a historia que se centra en el personaje de Selene antes de que despertara nuestra protagonista principal, Amy, y a pesar de que no quiero decir mucho ya que ser a spoiler, me ha gustado bastante volver a encontrarme con esta distop a tan genial que ha creado la autora, en especial este libro me lleno de ternura y cari o hacia algunos personajes pero sob [...]


  17. One of my favourite series is the Across the Universe series I was completely taken with the first book the moment I started reading it and I currently wait on pins and needles to read the third and sadly, last book in the series I mean, Beth Revis makes sci fi cool and accessible there s nothing wrong with that I was crazy happy when I saw that there was a novella available for the series a kind of prequel when Amy just arrives on Godspeed But we don t get to see Amy s point of view Instead, th [...]


  18. I recommend As They Slip Away.poor Selene Although this e novella proved just how deranged Luthor is.And I did learn something about Victria, Bartie, Kayleigh, and Harley Why they acted the way they did in Across the Universe and A Million Suns It made me realized how Elder s friends are still human regardless of the effects of Godspeed and Eldest s rule among them.I saw how their friendships were before it fell apart, through Selene s eyes, who felt like an outsider among them I miss Harley I k [...]


  19. I recently read Across the Universe and although I really like it one of my critiques was that it didn t really explore the society So I was hoping that this book would address that and give us layers to work it Now I must say that even though I liked this book I don t think that it was up to the job in that aspect.This book tells us the story us Selena, a singer that lived on the Hospital before Elder and that Amy met briefly in Across the Universe It was a sad story because from the very firs [...]


  20. NOTE I have not read ANY of the main books I read this out of curiosity if I would like to read any of the main books I mean I have so many books to read as it is already lol.I really loved the Greek aspects ingrained in this story However I felt distant between myself and the narrator it s in 1st POV and the way certain characters were done and whatnot just frustrated me Personally I would have liked the personality unfold even by a little bit and not someone jumping to the rescue saying oh, yo [...]


  21. This little story is about the life on Goodspeed through the eyes of Selene, seven years before Amy wakes up Selene lives at the hospital with Harley, Bartie, Luthor, Victia and Kayleigh I liked it Though the story is creepy and kind of unsettling It s nice to see the ship from another POV, and gives you a weird feeling reading it from Selene s POV after she decided that she doesn t want to care any and cares for the rabbits instead.This has a foreboding feeling throughout the whole story, wich [...]


  22. While this short story was alright, it was really predictable if you read the other books in the series I feel like it didn t add much overall because it didn t reveal any new information about the ship or anything besides the background story of a minor background character If you read the books, you know Luthor is awful and creepy and nothing in this story comes as a surprise.


  23. Pretty darn sad short story, about Selene, the rabbit girl, and Luthor, when they were both in the Hospital, and before Elder joined them, about 7 years before the start of the series Great short story though
