Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

DMBC

Genre

Thriller

Description

“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.

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.

Review

Dark Matter is an intense unexpected thriller that will leave you thinking “what if?” about the impacts of your decisions. Blake Crouch’s prose tells Jason’s story in a beautiful and riveting manner. This was my first experience with any of Crouch’s work, even though I already have the Wayward Pine’s books on my Kindle. I just haven’t gotten around to reading them yet thanks to my never ending TBR list. After Dark Matter I will be moving those up my list.

Quotes

“No one tells you it’s all about to change, to be taken away. There’s no proximity alert, no indication tat you’re standing on the precipice. And maybe that’s what makes tragedy so tragic.”

“Daniela, on my deathbed I would rather have memories of you than a cold, sterile lab.”
