A new dystopian/post-apocalyptic series from a New York Times best-selling author
My name is Theo, and I'm a resident of Oasis, the last habitable area on Earth. It's meant to be a paradise, a place where we are all content. Vulgarity, violence, insanity, and other ills are but a distant memory, and even death no longer plagues us.
I was once content, too, but now I'm different. Now I hear a voice in my head, and she tells me things no imaginary friend should know. Her name is Phoe, and she is my delusion.
Or is she?

You will get sucked into their world!
I found the reading by the narrator was well done and helped to bring the story to life for me. His various voices have become those I associate with the characters. The recording is clear, without any background distractions.
Theo is one of the many youths on Oasis. The stories based in the future, where machines have taken over the world and caused a global meltdown. Goo covers everything except for the small inside section that is protected by the force field - oasis.
In this society there are no family units and no one ages past 40. You are considered to be a youth until your 40th birthday, then you become an adult. There are also the elderly but on one sees them around.
Theo has been talking with his imaginary friend a lot lately but she seems to know things he does not know, like about movies he's never seen before. And Phoe always seems to know where his friends are, or if they are looking for him. Could his imaginary friend really be real?
His friend takes him on a crazy series of events and everything he used to know changes.
This is a super addictive story. I found it to be very fast paced I listened to this book through audible, and its length is 7 hours and 28 minutes. I was pretty much listening to this as often as I could thought the day. I've listened to it about 2-3 times now before writing the review. The novel is left happily resolved but I am quite certain that there will be a sequel!
There is swearing thought the novel, in addition to some violent descriptions/concepts. I would recommend this book for adults and potentially mature older teenagers. Additionally there is some advanced vocabulary that younger readers may not understand - such are morose.
I received this novel via audible for testing in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have provided based on listening to the novel multiple times

I just could not take it anymore. The reader's cadence either put me to sleep or drove me crazy. He got stuck in a rhythm that was supremely annoying. Add to that, the author's obsessive love and use of the word cognizant, just couldn't finish it.
