Book Review: Oasis by Dima Zales

I recieved this product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Oasis by Dima Zales. (pre-order here)
A couple months ago, I received an email asking me to review Dima Zale's new book before it came out. The email stated that it was the next big thing in the Futuristic Dystopia genre and that if I liked The Hunger Games and Divergent, I would like Oasis. Well, I did like The Hunger Games and Divergent. And I was psyched to read a book that wasn't even out yet!

So I jumped on the chance even though I had a lot of other books on my list that I wanted to finish before the end of the year. I just knew I would love Oasis and boy was I right! I couldn't put it down. I read it in 3 days. Granted that was while on Christmas vacation when I didn't have to go to work and I wasn't blogging all the time. But still.

Of all the dystopic books I've read, I have always liked the simplicity of The Giver and I love how Oasis reminded me of that. First of all, the main character was a boy. Or rather a 23 year old Youth. Also, there was not really a lot of love and distractions. One thing that frustrated me was the fact that there was one particular character that reminded me A LOT of a certain character in The Giver, but they turned out not to be as similar as I thought they would be when we were first introduced.

Another thing I loved about Oasis is that there was a lot of technology and artificial intelligence which really appealed to me because I am a computer programmer. I loved reading about all the AI and how technology had advanced because that's the stuff I'm interested in.

Also, there was a major plot twist at the end. I thought it was heading in one direction and it went completely in another. With that being said, there was quite a cliffhanger ending and I can't wait to read the next one!

Be sure to pre-order Oasis here. I highly recommend it and I think you'll really enjoy it!

Have you read any good books lately? Do you enjoy the Futuristic Dystopia genre?
Thanks for reading!
