Blog Tour: The Body Electric by Beth Revis

The Body Electric
by Beth Revis
Publisher: Scripturient Books
Release Date: October 6th 2014
Rate: 3,5 stars


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?

The Body Electric is the definition of a good science fiction story, with an amazing world and a good plot.

Beth Revis creates wonderful stories and amazing worlds, and the one in The Body Electric is a great example. I loved Beth's world, bringing a possible future filled with nanobots that can cure an injury or all that technological future we have seen in many movies or TV Shows. She picked the best of that possible future and brought it into the story.

I liked how she imagined this great technologic future, but kept it real with a battle between government and terrorism that we can be familiar with. The plot is a great one and it has all the necessary content to blow the readers' mind. 

Although Ella is a character hard to feel identified with and not easy to like sometimes, it keeps the story interesting and you end up understanding her behavior.

I had a good time reading The Body Electric and I would recommend it to all Beth Revis' fans.
