Book Review: Omnia by Laura Garcia

Reports of my assimilation have been greatly exaggerated! :)

The Book:

The Blurb:

All you have to do is imagine—the Omnia superstore has anything you could ever dream of.

Where else but Omnia would a boy go looking to replace a one-of-a-kind stuffed bunny that happens to be his baby sister’s favorite toy? Scrolling through the online retailer’s extensive inventory, Nico finds what looks like a perfect match, but the item is lost somewhere in the vast Omnia warehouse. He doesn’t believe it, so he stows away in a shipment being returned to the warehouse to search for the bunny himself.

Nico quickly gets stranded on the island of Omnia, a fantastical place that does much more than sell everyday items. It is a hub for a business with intergalactic reach, and while stray visitors to Omnia are welcomed warmly, they are not permitted to leave, ever.

The adventure of a lifetime awaits Nico as he searches for the beloved toy and tries to find a way to return home.

The Review:

Received from NetGalley for my honest review

288 page ebook

Omnia is a Middle Grade book about a boy who goes on the search for a stuffed bunny at Omnia, a "store" that has anything you could ever want or need.

While I thought that the story dragged at parts, overall I thought it was very very cute. It definitely is on the more younger side of middle grade and not all adults who enjoy MG books may like it, and probably many teens won't, but anyone who is looking for just a cute story overall will enjoy Omnia.

Nico finds his way to Omnia, a place that the world knows little to nothing about and finds a magical place filled with all many of things and creatures. He tries to fit in as he gets stuck in Omnia but is always looking for the rabbit and for his way home.

The story was unique and very cute. It was different and I wasn't expecting things that happened. It was slow at times but overall was quite good. If I have one complaint about it, it is that the ending was rather abrupt. I mean, it was leading up to it, but it was like all the sudden and then there was little follow up, it was just over. I would have liked to have seen the ending filled out with more detail and more after all that happened then just the letter. The letter was good, but I just would have liked more.

Very cute!
