Beyond Our Stars

Review From User :

Wow. This is an intense read! After the destruction of the Earth, a handful of survivors have spent five years in space en route to a habitable planet, only to land and discover that it's already inhabited. The motives of the locals are nearly impossible to understand, but Hope and the other teens on board the ship keep trying. Desperate to make a new life, but frightened and angry, is it only a matter of time before the last remaining humans destroy each other...or will the locals beat them to it

This is a story of love, loss, and an unlikely leader. It's filled with hope (and the protagonist is aptly named!)


Narrated by Meetu Chilana

Length: 6 hours and 14 minutes

Fleeing a destroyed Earth, seventeen-year-old orphan Hope grew up living in the confines of a spaceship heading to CR-3, a new home planet.

She’s been kicking the steel walls for too long and ever since she broke her boyfriend’s heart, touchdown could mean open air and a fresh start. But no one expected the Locals.

Hope’s dreams of freedom turn into nightmares when the Locals trap the humans and mark groups for observation. At any moment she can be called into a holographic observation room for testing.

Some days she’s drowning in a strange dark ocean, some days she is locked up without food, and all with the one boy she can’t seem to forget.

As the Locals study Hope, she studies them. She wants to believe the tall grey creatures could be peaceful, but as the simulations become more dangerous, Hope is about to become the human race’s last chance for survival.
