    Wow! Hot Ash and the Oasis Defect wasn't what I was expecting but it was an awesome ride! I'm a big fan of dystopian novels, which is why I gave this book a try. But it's more than that. It really makes you think, and also laugh, and sit on the edge of your seat. It's sexy while also being dramatic and thought-provoking.

    Detective Ash Westgard is such a fun character. She's arrogant but also good at her job, despite the occasional on-duty inebriation. An early scene in the book has Ash meeting up

    I've listen to the audiobook instead of reading and the narrator really does a very good job at bring all the different characters to life.
    The story in itself is captivating because of the context (a future world were the women rule and men are the underdog, while robots slowly seem to drive humankind into boredom, seeking thrills by drugs and sexual pleasures), and also the interesting characters and their reflections.
    There was one thing that I was not expecting in this kind of story with a

    Hot Ash and the Oasis Effect was not what I expected, but it was definitely entertaining. A story packed with satirical levity and turned upside down compared to what we face today with regards to male and female roles. My only hang up was the painting of the lead character as a big bad MF was a bit overdone. The narrator did a nice job. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    “We are the ones who saw how perpetual motion, as realized by the Worker-Factory-Mechanic, could be the vanguard of an equitable future. All that was needed was a raw material capable of matching AI's tireless pace. We found it in that bountiful gift that comes from our dear Mother Earth: industrial-grade hemp.” 0 likes
    “She had a working theory about what was going on, which she called the dilemma of the steam valve. On one hand, the world was being built up and maintained virtually on autopilot by an interconnected network of machines that could assemble and repair themselves. But people still had doubts and flaws and uncontrollable passions that needed some kind of release. That didn't always make for a rosy picture.” 0 likes
