I stumbled upon Across the Void while looking for a book for my husband. I was intrigued by the storyline: a female astronaut waking up alone on a vessel in deep space, not sure what has happened to her crew or why she was in an induced coma. We later find out that her ship is in distress and that she may not survive unless she can get her ship in working order again and time is running out.
Across the Void is an exciting thriller that should appeal to fans of Andy Weir's The Martian. Even though our heroine, May, is not always the most likable character, she evokes empathy and her determination to survive, even in moments when she thinks her situation is hopeless, kept me rooting for her.
My only quibbles with Across the Void are that the ending felt a bit rushed and there were a few plot twists that seemed a bit too expected. However, I really enjoyed following the rollercoaster ride how May ended up in her situation and her fight to survive.
A recommended read!
