I really enjoyed this book, even if the premise was absurd. I like the world building that was done, and how immersive it makes the experience of being in the oasis. It doesn’t feel like a story about a boy who is living in a trailer park, it feels like the story of a hero on a quest. I think that really does justice to the way the people who live their lives for the oasis would feel. I also think that the corporations in the book are scary, and the only think holding back real world corporations form being like that is some vague person ethics. It is a book I could read several times.
