REVIEW - The Body Electric by Beth Revis


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?


Right now I don't know what to say, because this novel started slowly and it was like that until the middle and then, like a montagnerusse ride made me dizzy and spin me until I fell on my head. It blew my mind, honestly and I think this is the craziest novel that I've read so far, this year.

I don't want to give spoilers, so I won't talk to much, but... man, I wouldn't have guessed what was going to happen and who was who, and how the story was going to end. And Ella is such a complexe character and I loved her. She's so real and realistic and she knows a lot of stuff; plus she's such a strong heroine and she has a ton of ambition. I liked Jack too, even sometimes it was kinda hard to see and understand him from Ella's perspective.

This book is good if you want a hell of a ride. Is good when you want something really original, well written, with such fabulous characters and an amazing plot. And I don't want to think about the plot twists that made my head explode. Such an amazing read and I'm glad that I read it. Highly recommend you to pick this up, even if you're not a SF fan or a dystopia fan. It doesn't matter. 

Received through NetGalley! Thanks!
