Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

From Goodreads: “Are you happy with your life?”

Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious.

Before he awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits.

Before a man Jason’s never met smiles down at him and says, “Welcome back, my friend.”

In this world he’s woken up to, Jason’s life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.rws.gif

Is it this world or the other that’s the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could’ve imagined—one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe.

From the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy, Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human—a relentlessly surprising science-fiction thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we’ll go to claim the lives we dream of.


My Review:

What on earth can I say about this book? I don’t even know how to describe it. I’m just going to say it was totally AWESOME!!!

This is my first read by Blake Crouch and Dark Matter was literally an action packed roller coaster ride! I was thoroughly engaged and engrossed by the story. I went into this book totally blind and had no idea of the plot. Also, there were surprises along the way that weren’t predictable and I remained on edge until the end.

I would highly recommend this to anyone and honestly can’t believe someone would hate it. I thought it was AMAZING and so far the best thrilling fiction I’ve read in a long, long time.

I have hopes for a second book and I’m looking forward to reading more by this author. I can totally see this turned into a movie, seriously!  5 stars
