Oasis: The Last Humans is a post-apocalyptic set book where this Goo had slaughtered all but a few hundred remaining humans. Everyone live in this “Oasis” where there are three significant areas. The main area (for children, who are in this book ones under 40), the Adults areas, and the Elder area.
The main character, Theo one day starts hearing a voice in his head who is named Phoe, and just under half of the book is spent looking for Phoe, who turns out to be someone unexpected, which is quite a surprise for anyone who is reading the book.
I won’t mention many plot details, since it’s quite intricate and I wouldn’t want to spoil anything. The book is quite technology-centred, with information screens and secret hidden technology to keep the Utopian Universe calm. Phoe shows Theo things from the past, including movies, games and music.
I’ve loved reading Oasis, and I think that Dima Zales has written a well thought out book correctly, with plot twists and Cliff Hangers galore.
The only possible thing I could fault this book on would have to be it’s target audience. It may seem like a book for younger audiences at first, but it separates from Child to teen to a more adult audience due to its “colourful” language, which you will see scattered around the book.
I’d rate this book ⅘ stars, it does storytelling and character development excellently, although the target audience is slightly questionable.
