Across the Universe comes out today! Are you as excited as I am? I hope after you see some of the stuff they've done for this book then you will be!!!
First, take a look at the cool trailer:
Then check out this awesome video Beth did about the book:
You've also gotta go and take a look at the awesome Across the Universe website. It's an interactive version of the Godspeed, the ship from the book! Unfortunately you'll have to open Explorer or Chrome, I couldn't get it to work in Firefox at all, but the website is so worth it! Be sure and look at all the details on the farms. It's so strange-but-awesome to see a science fiction book put so much detail into agricultural science and the webs of lifeforms required to have a sustainable enclosed eco-system.
Need more? Here's some cool links to tide you over until you can run out to the bookstore:
