Product description

About the Author

Laura Gallego was born in Valencia (Spain) in 1977. When she was eleven, she started to work on her first novel together with a friend. That book was never published, but she always dreamed of being a writer. Finally, at the age of twenty-one, her novel Finis Mundi won a literary competition (El Barco de Vapor). That is how she managed to get published for the first time, although it was actually the fourteenth book she wrote. Since then, she hasn’t stopped writing. She has had over thirty books published in Spain, most of them novels for young adults with a fantasy theme, and her work has been translated into many languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Korean.

In 2011, Gallego received the Cervantes Chico Award recognizing her entire works and in 2012 her novel Donde los árboles cantan won the National Award for Children’s and Young Adult Literature.

Format: Kindle Edition
Omnia has an intriguing synopsis and I chose it also for its retro cover art by Chelsea Wirtz and because its translator is Jordi Castells who I thought did a superb job with Pierced By The Sun by Laura Esquivel which I read last month. I am glad to say this concise novel didn't disappoint. It is a quick read which I devoured in a single sitting over a few hours, thoroughly enjoying every minute. Nico knows he shouldn't really have thrown out his baby sister's beloved toy rabbit and his guilt is endearing, but the sacrifice he ends up making to redeem himself is way more than he could ever have imagined.

Gallego's Omnia is, on later reflection, a disconcertingly real vision of our future and the irony of this translation being published by Amazon either shows that they do have a sense of humour or that the powers-that-be didn't actually read the book before signing it up! I loved the idea of boys hiding out for months within a warehouse where everything is available for the taking, albeit several hours walk away and you have to know exactly where to look, and the Hotel California vibe makes for a wonderfully menacing atmosphere. Extensive automation causing job reduction certainly reflects the trends I see around me as well as the first-world notion that anything is just a click away if you have the credit to buy it. Omnia is an excellent novel that is superficially an easy read, but with thought-provoking layers that I think will make it a popular choice for book clubs.

Reviewed as part of a tandem review with La La in the Library and Book Haven - see here http://redheatherduff.blogspot.com/20...

1.What are your general thoughts?
I think the first thing that grabbed me about Omnia was the fact it seemed to be a cross between two things I love, Amazon and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The fact that the Omnia warehouse is an island, the fact it takes up the whole island is such a cool idea, and c'mon who hasn't wanted to explore the Amazon warehouse unchecked?

2. How did you feel about the plot?
The plot is kinda cute to begin with, our main character is Nico a young boy who lives with his mum, dad and little sister. His little sister's favourite toy, a bunny on its last hop, gets chucked out. Nico may have given it a helping hand, however he is full of guilt once he sees how distraught his little sister is, where can he get another toy? Omnia, that's where! They sell everything and they sell the bunny but there is a big problem, Omnia can't find the bunny. So what does Nico do? Well he gets himself shipped to Omnia thats what. This is of course a totally crazy thing to do but it works and he finds himself at the Chocolate Factory, sorry I mean Omnia warehouse, there he meets people who have been there their entire lives and the robots they work with. He also finds out this utopian supplier of wares is maybe not as fantastic as it seems and even though his main task is finding the bunny, he also finds himself full immersed in to weird and wonderful world of Omnia.

3. What did you think about the characters?
Nico the main character was very much portrayed (and correctly so) as such an innocent, you really see the world through his eyes and feel his amazement at all the things he sees.

Format: Paperback
This is a decidedly quirky Spanish novel about Omnia, a place where you can get anything you desire. Just order online and it will be with you the next day. Kind of like Amazon, then…..Only when Nico inadvertently loses his little sister’s toy rabbit he discovers that sometimes getting something from Omnia takes a bit more effort than a clink of the mouse. For Nico it involves a perilous voyage, encounters with aliens and robots and quite an adventure. Inventive, original and generally good fun, it’s a lovely little tale, aimed primarily at younger readers but only the most hard-hearted of adult readers will fail to be enchanted by it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice 1 Nov. 2016
By Jatana Fleming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I received this copy in a Goodreads giveaway and let me tell you I so enjoyed this story. When Nico accidentally throws away his little sister's favorite stuffed rabbit, he heads out to Omnia to find a replacement and he starts the biggest adventure of his life. What I loved about this story is no matter how siblings may get on each others last nerve, they love with a pure heart and Nico would go to the end of the world to get that rabbit for his sister. This story is great for young readers and I hope Nico as another adventure. As I read this story all I could think about was this was happening in a wonderful Amazon warehouse.
4.0 out of 5 stars Cute 1 Nov. 2016
By Megan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What a quick and fun read! I admit, I wasn't sure where this story would go, but I really enjoyed the adventure Nico had.

I only wish there was more about his family, especially later in the book. But that's probably the adult in me, I think the focus on Nico was appropriate for a kid's book.

I loved the world of Omnia. So many details and intricacies, along with the place's inhabitants. It was so easy to picture this place as if it were real.

All in all, I would highly recommend this to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon gone crazy 23 Sept. 2016
By inu206 - Published on Amazon.com

I can only imagine this story to happen in the future in one of Amazons warehouses. This was such a fun read, I truly enjoyed the adventure. It is definitely for middle grade readers but anyone can enjoy the fun and interesting story. Recommended.

This story waffled back and forth between great and boring, so I gave it a middle rating of three stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars Omnia Review 21 Sept. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Omnia was an awesome story about a young boy trying to find his sisters stuffed bunny. It is a fast easy read and is definitely worth the time it takes to read.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes young author books with a feel of dystopia.
I gave this book 5 stars.
