    One thought on “Oasis

    1. Alicia

      I was provided an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Man.I wasn't sure what to expect with this considering the synopsis was very short and vague. Basically, it's about a guy, Theo, who all of a sudden starts hearing this voice inside his head. Her name is Phoe (pronounced, fee). He is part of the "Youths" of Oasis. Above them are the "Adults" and above them are the "Elderly". They are raised to behave so abnormally than the "ancients". The ancients would be us, modern day human [...]

      In a dystopian/post-apocalyptic society known as Oasis we meet Theo. Theo is a twenty-three year old that thinks he is going crazy as he's begun to hear a voice in his head who calls herself Phoe. Theo thinks that Phoe is a figment of his imagination but she knows things that Theo himself couldn't possibly know. When Phoe tells Theo that his friend Mason is looking for him he finds him alone and upset. Oasis citizens have their emotions controlled and things like depression shouldn't exist but M [...]

      Oasis will most likely be my favourite book this year!When I first started this book, I was a bit iffy about it. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the main character, especially if he was in fact crazy. But after a few chapters I was absolutely amazing by the book and I could not put it down. It's action packed, mysterious and you just can't help but fall in love with it.Theo thinks he's going crazy because he can hear a voice inside his head. The voice known as Phoe, can't possibly be an ima [...]

      DNF at 26%I was given an eARC of this book for an honest review. You can find more reviews at Beautiful FandomsI tried so hard to read this book, I really did. I hate DNF-ing a book, but I couldn't get through this one. From the beginning, I noticed that I had to force myself to continue reading. By 26%, I realised I still wasn't into it and what's the point reading a book that I have to force myself to read, right?The book is a YA, but the language (swearing, etc) is that of an adult book. Mean [...]

      2.5 Stars Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes I need to admit that I have a soft spot for Dystopian YA stories, and I haven't yet been able to decide exactly why. I heard this book was being compared to the Divergent series, and even though that series wasn't all gold that blinks, I felt like I had to read this book as well. But, as it turned out. The covers are the only things that are alike.Meet Theo, your not-so-strong male protagonist, who's not so quiet and docile any more since he [...]

      Oasis by Dima Zales is a Sci Fi/ Fantasy book. In this novel we meet Theo (Theodore) who is a twenty-three year old male who thinks he is possibly going crazy because there is a voice that suddenly starts talking to him. The voice named Phoe (pronounced Fee) is a voice that seems to know a lot and have control over somethings, but Theo doesn't know if he should trust the voice or not. Is she real? or possibly could she be some alter ego he created?Oasis is a great SciFi book that really pushes t [...]

      Even though there are a fair amount of swear words, and even though the characters are in their 20s, I found this book incredibly juvenile and would definitely label it as YA geared at 12-14 year olds (boys, in particular). A lot of parts were really eyeroll-worthy… The main character, Theo, and his friends using "cryptic" pig Latin to avoid being overheard, for instance… like anyone with half a brain couldn't figure out what they were saying. And especially how Theo kept referencing things [...]

    8. Kelly Lyn

      This book was absolutely fantastic. What I thought it would be about was completely different than what it is. It is about the last humans on Earth that are being mind controlled by the elderly. The main guy Theo learned the truth about how he is not really on Earth and how everything that is against the forebears beliefs are forgotten.It is easy to forget that he was playing a game the first time when "Liam" died. It was a shock to know that he was having a conversation with Phoe who was really [...]

    9. Carrie Gulledge

      Well, that was an interesting… adventure.I’m a huge fan of dystopia reading, so this book was right up my alley. It had all of the adventure that your typical dystopia novel does, along with all of the societal changes that you could get your feel of. It felt like an interesting mish-mash of Wall-e and The Giver (you’ll especially get the Wall-e reference towards the end of the book). It was similar to The Giver in the way that the society manages the emotional state of its residents, alth [...]

    10. Bryan Hargrave

      I've got to stop reading self published authors. I got lucky once and I guess that luck ran out.I knocked this one out during a drive from Atlanta to Richmond (9 hours) and was so over it by 50% that I even sped up the reading not caring that I would sit in silence for the last 2 hours of the trip. I just wanted it over with. Action scenarios that would have surely taken place in 10 seconds in real time took pages and pages in this book. Described like "and then my foot moved two inches, and the [...]

    11. Suzanne Stallings

      I love dystopia type books and this one didn't disappoint me. I love to see the ways societies function in these scenarios. In this case controlling the population by removing any memories individuals may have that would cause emotional distress. It was also interesting how mental illness is taboo in this society. The entire first half of the book you are kind of torn between thinking the main character may in fact be crazy or that he is sane and actually hearing a real voice in his head. I was [...]

    12. Lisa

      Ughhhh that is 7 days of my life I cannot get back. Such a disappointing book. Made absolutely no sense. just a boy talking to himself for an entire book asking the question "WHY?" then he plays a virtual reality video game to find out he is in a space ship and his inner voice is actually a space ship and they are aliens. WTF!!!!!!!!

    13. Alicia

      I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewI really enjoyed this book. At times I was definitely confused, but it made sense as I was on the same confusing journey as the main character. Very imaginative. I would rate this book at a 4.5.

    14. Mellissa Monteforte

      I like the originality of the storyline and the characters who capture the readers from beginning to end. I'm interested to see where this series will lead and excited to see how thints will continue to flow. Definitely need to check this out for yourself!

      Oasis (The Last Humans #1)I was given this ARC by NetGalley in return for an honest review.What an adventure of a story! I was not quite sure what to expect to find when I began reading this story, since the synopsis was intriguing enough, but did not really give a good idea of what the reader could expect. Many a times I was almost too distracted wondering where the story would head to pay attention to the many nuances and references to the popular culture and cult classics. As well, throughout [...]

    16. Jeremy

      I strongly recommend that anyone who is a sci-fi fan read Oasis, the first book in the series “The Last Humans” by Dima Zales. The setting takes place in Oasis, the last hospitable place on Earth after its been destroyed by The Goo, a destructive technology that is duplicated from matter. The book is written in the first person from the dialect of Theo, the main character. Throughout the book, Theo is converses with his imaginary female friend Phoe (pronounced “fee”).The story builds gra [...]

    18. Tiera San

      I was provided an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This book will leave you guessing. It is suspenseful at every moment. When you think one thing was going to happen, it would lead somewhere beyond your wildest imagination. Dima Zales' new series is The Last Humans is a dystopian/post apocalyptic world in which the last humans live under a dome protected from the destroying force that is the Goo. The Goo is like a slime that was created from Artificial intelligence that turned [...]

    19. Melissa (Kersey)Corbeil

      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 [...]

    20. Jessica Johnson

      Everyone complains about the swearing in this book, but I don't mind it for me. Not so much for my kids, since it is a YA book. But it isn't as though my kids have never heard these words beforeuse they have, I will just wait a few more years before I let them read this.I don't do spoilers, but I will tell you the gist of the book. This is a post apocalyptic series. I really love how well it is written. You really get a great picture of what they are going through in this book and what the world [...]

    21. KittyKat

      *This book was provided to me via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*This book was captivating and intriguing from the beginning to the end. While I know I have to suspend my disbelief for these types of books, the ending was just too much for me. (view spoiler)[ How could Phoe be the spaceship or a 'mind' yet still be able to have relations with Theo? While I get that there is Augmented and Virtual reality, she doesn't actually have a body so how can she pursue a relationship with Theo? [...]

    22. Carole Hayes

      I'm a huge fan of Dima Zales, so I was very excited when I heard he had written the start of a new series. From reading his other books I fully expected a complex world and likable characters, and I was not disappointed. The story itself starts off simply enough, but I didn't allow myself to settle in and assume I knew what was going to happen, and it's a good thing I didn't, because while I guessed a couple of things along the way, there were other things that I did NOT see coming. (I love it w [...]

    23. Ashalyn

      I receivedOasis, The Last Humans book 1 to give an honest review. I must say I was surprised about how much I liked this book. I do not usually read this genre of book but it kept me interested and happy. This book was a fresh change to what I usually read and currently it is available for Pre Order on for the Amazing price of 2.99 for Kindle or 12.99 for the physical plus added bonus it is on audio which is my favorite form due to how busy my job is. amazon/Oasis-Last-Huma The only disadvantag [...]

    24. Michelle Boyea

      Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest reviewWhen I first started reading this book, my immediate thought was, "oh great, another post-apocalyptic world book". I was wrong.This was a fantastic, engaging, suspenseful read. I dived into it very quickly and could not stop reading it until the end. I finished it in less than 2 hours because I could not put it down.The plot is full of twists and turns, the characters are very well developed, and the story line is unique. [...]

    25. Esther

      I very much enjoyed this book. So much so that I was able to read it all in one sitting, despite the amount of school work I have to doThis book really kept you on your toes, and actually got my heart rate up at certain parts. It was a very interesting read, with well developed characters and a great plot. I would give this book a 4.5 star rating if it were possible, however it doesn't quite qualify for a 5 star rating. Regardless, I would recommend this to anyone, even if it doesn't seem like y [...]

    26. Shanna Tidwell

      This book reminds me of the giver and the 100 with originality thrown in as well. I hope that this comparison does not give anything away. The story starts with three words. That's the only thing in the story they could make anyone turn away. This is the main characters way to rebel. He is 23 years old but in his society that age is more like a 16-year-old. While I believe the story could be enjoyed by all ages I think the target audience is 16 to 25. Being a gamer couldn't hurt either. I do pla [...]

    27. Tori Meskell

      I'm really enjoying Dima ZalesThe story is a really original basis. I really enjoy following the story that Dima tells. The secondary characters are 2 dimensional, but that's not an issue here as the story follows 2 main characters. I like the premise that life on Earth as we know it has ended and that there's a colony of what's left. Where it goes from there is intriguing and keeps the reader engaged. Can't wait to read the next one.

    28. Katherina

      Extrem spannend, gut geschrieben und in einer tollen Welt. Der Schluss ist einer von der Sorte, die mich die anderen zwei Bände auf die Wunschliste tun ließ (gekauft wird dann, wenn ich mir das nächste Mal Wünsche erfüllen will). Mit kleinen Schwächen (es gab eine Stelle, die zog sich ein bisschen). Insgesamt sehr lesenswert!

    29. Tina

      A fairly entertaining quick read. While some details were quite inventive, I found the major plot points a little too predictable for my liking. (I purchased the complete trilogy ebook, but don't I'll continue past this one)
