If you were to ask me what my favourite genre of book to read is, hands down it would be dystopian.
I was hooked from the very beginning of the novel when we meet Theo and he is not sure if he is going insane, has an imaginary friend or some sort of ghost talking in his ear and reading his thoughts all of the time named Phoe, pronounced “Fi”.
The book takes the reader on so many twists and turns, it is hard to put down. I read it in one day because I just had to know what was happening next!
The premise is that they live in Oasis. The Earth has been destroyed due to the rapidly advancing technology that society could not keep up with and has become The Goo, a jello like terrain that does not look appetizing at all. The people in Oasis are the only survivors and have found a better way to live thanks to nanocytes.
There are Youths, Adults and Elders and you become an adult at 40. There is no swearing, vulgarity and you do not ask questions as that will earn you some time in Quietude in the Witch’s Prison.
Zales has carefully crafted an incredible world that becomes more and more fascinating as you work your way through the story.
By the end, I was absolutely stunned at the truth of Oasis and I was left wanting so much more of these characters and the story.
I will definitely be checking out the next installment of Oasis!
