I've always loved how varied each book in The Power of Five is, and Oblivion takes that to new heights. It's unlike any of the other entries in the se..Show More »ries, and even the story threads within the main plot straddle multiple genres, locations, and themes.
The slow reveal of how the status quo has shifted is gripping. and Oblivion maintains that intrigue throughout as it explore how this shift has affected different parts of the world. Horowitz has essentially stripped down this universe to its core, then built an entirely new one around it. This means that long time readers and newcomers are all introduced at the same pace, creating a self contained story for all, with many extra layers of depth for fans.
Oblivion pulls no punches, no one is safely hidden behind plot armour, making the whole experience enthralling from start to finish.
The narrator does a good job conveying both the subtleties of dialogue and the urgent pace of action. The American accent is really quite wonky but otherwise he does the material justice.
A must listen for fans of the series, and definitely something to consider if you're a newcomer. A true epic.
