Review: Omnilogos - Extended Edition (The Omnilogos Series, #1) by Michele Amitrani

Title: Omnilogos - Extended Edition (The Omnilogos Series, #1)
Author: Michele Amitrani
Published: October 2015 by Michele Amitrani
Genre: Sci-Fi, Young Adult
Rating: 4 Stars
“I am a collector of hopes and peregrine truths, a shepherd of thoughts, ideas, projects and dreams too important not to be realized. I’m an abstract concept 
that has no body, no smell, no boundaries, no shape and no color. 
I am the Omnilogos.”

So it is forged, a Science Fiction saga that gave birth to a legend, a tale about 
the life of a man with one project that will change mankind’s future forever.
Ten stories about his life, his sorrow, and his quest to gather the resources 
and the people needed to claim our place among the stars.

This is Wei’s story.

This is the world of the Omnilogos.

I received a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

Thanks Michele!

*This edition has a new cover and it's just as wicked as the original!*

I originally read Omnilogos back in February so this is my second time reading thanks to Michele's kind offer to let me review the extended edition. This review is kind of a mashup of my original and what I thought after rereading.

 My Thoughts 
I enjoyed Omnilogos more the second time around. I think having read it before I was better prepared to keep up with the different characters and stories and especially for Wei's quirks but it will always be one of those books that you have to read for yourself to begin to understand what it's about.

Wei Wang is the Omnilogos.

"Tiago had heard of what some called the 'human database' or 'omnilogos', but nothing could have prepared him for this."

"I am a collector of hopes and peregrine truths, a shepherd of thoughts, ideas, projects and dreams too important not to be realized. I'm an abstract concept that has no body, no smell, no boundaries, no shape and no color. I am the Omnilogos."

It's hard to say much without giving the book away but it is a short and original read. Amitrani's writing is lovely, the technical parts sometimes made the story lag for me but it didn't take away from just how brilliant a story Omnilogos is. The surprise ending was also easier to take this time and I understand the importance of it.

Overall, I've come to love Omnilogos and Wei even more. There's still a smidgen of romance and a lot of heart and of course is a perfect read for sci-fi fans.
