Inhaltsangabe zu „Omnia“ von Laura Gallego Garcia

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.

    It's been a long time since read a book that felt 'new', and that was the first impression I got when reading Omnia. By misfortune, Clover, the stuffed bunny of Nico's little sister is lost. Feeling guilty about it, Nico decides to find an identical replacement. A similar bunny seems to be available at Omnia, a huge online store that sells 'everything you wish for'. Unfortunately, the toy can't be ordered due to some error: it seems to be misplaced somewhere in the warehouse. This leads Nico on a mission to find Clover himself, but once in Omnia, you are not allowed to leave - ever.What follows is a fantastic adventure where he explores the seemingly endless storage space of Omnia, meeting creepy robot workers, exotic otherworldly creatures - and new friends. He also encounters NIA, a seemingly omnipotent AI program, which seems to control everything in Omnia. While NIA shows a friendly (inter)face, Nico soon learns that she does not allow any disturbance to the perfectly working machinery of Omnia. Programmed to solve any problem, NIA regards humans as the most error-prone factor in Omnia, which therefore has to be eliminated. However, at the end it shows that NIA's perfection is also her weakness and no match to the human mind.Inventive and fascinating, Omnia is an outstanding modern fantasy story of the present age. While the writing clearly addresses younger readers, adults will also enjoy this futuristic vision, which spins the vast possibilities of online shopping into further dimensions. Highest recommendation.(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
