Quick Review: The Body Electric by Beth Revis

the body electric So this book wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great either.  It was more meh.  I wanted to get into it but I just couldn’t.  The pacing felt a little off to me.  It started fast a little too fast for me.  Ella’s mother has invented technology that allows people to relive their best memories and Ella has the ability to go into people’s minds and memories and look around their minds.  She does this once and all of a sudden she’s an expert.  She all of a sudden knows how to manipulate minds and search around strangers memories to find what she needs.  Then pacing slows as we try to find out why she can’t remember the hot rebel, Jack and if he’s the terrorist or is it the government?  After it moved too fast and then moved to slowly and then we finally got to the climax and was dragged out and then it was over.  I was a little disappointed because I really loved Beth Revis’ Across the Universe series.  This had so much potential to be a cool book that just never really got going.
