REVIEW: The Body Electric by Beth Revis

The Body Electric
The future world is at peace.

Ella Shepherd has dedicated her life to using her unique gift—the ability to enter people’s dreams and memories using technology developed by her mother—to help others relive their happy memories.

But not all is at it seems.

Ella starts seeing impossible things—images of her dead father, warnings of who she cannot trust. Her government recruits her to spy on a rebel group, using her ability to experience—and influence—the memories of traitors. But the leader of the rebels claims they used to be in love—even though Ella’s never met him before in her life. Which can only mean one thing…

Someone’s altered her memory.

Ella’s gift is enough to overthrow a corrupt government or crush a growing rebel group. She is the key to stopping a war she didn’t even know was happening. But if someone else has been inside Ella’s head, she cannot trust her own memories, thoughts, or feelings.

So who can she trust?

I received an ecopy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I love the Across the Universe series, so I was excited when I found out that Beth Revis was writing another book! And I was not disappointed in this book!

What's probably my favorite thing about this book is how unique it is. Beth Revis does such an amazing job describing and building the world, and while it is a dystopian and most dystopian books seem like the same old thing, this book is completely different than any other. And this world is highly based on science and while the science is far-off, this books makes everything sound possible and believable.

The book is also very entertaining and it's hard to put down. There are so many twists and turns, along with the idea that Ella has no idea what is truth and lies, that you absolutely need to keep reading!

The romance is also very well done. It doesn't distrant from the plot, in fact, it's hardly there at all for a majority of the book. The romance is also done in a very interesting way...

One thing I would like to mention, is that the author does make a few references to Across the Universe in this book. It's not important to the story, but I just love it when an author gives a little wink to her other books!

Now, I loved this book, but for some reason, I can't give it a higher rating. I didn't have very many issues with this book. In fact, my only problem was just that I was a bit confused and overwhelmed at the end. There was just so many things that I had to wrap my mind around. But I don't blame the book or the author for this, as I get confused extraordinarily easily.

I'm sorry if my review is vague, but I want you to be shocked by the events in the book, just like I was. It's a very unique sci-fi read with lots of plot twists! I do recommend it, along with the author's other books!

I hereby give this book

4 Wheels
Meaning: It was amazing!
