Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

“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. @goodreads



I just read the craziest book and it was so good. I was going along wanting to find out what in the world has happened to Jason! Why has he lost his identity. Who are these people after him! I mean one minute, you have a wife and kid and then you don't. Your in another world .. ish.
AND. THEN. IT. WAS. DOWN. THE. RABBIT. HOLE. Just trying to enjoy this book and they lured me right on down that hole!

So now. What am I going to say in this review that won't give anything away. I mean this is a book that you need to talk about with people. It is full of science and alternate this and alternate that. Holy crow, the things Jason has to go through just to try to find his wife Daniela and his son Charlie is CRAZY!!!


The book is good though, it will definitely keep you on your toes and have a lot of those what the.. moments. And when you find out who is behind a lot of this stuff when he goes to different realities, it will throw you for a loop! I was like, no way!!!! I would not want to be this man!

Anyway, all of you science peeps out there should read it and some others too. I want to see what some of my friends think about it.

**I would like to thank Penguin Random House for a print copy of this book through The Reading Room in exchange for my honest review.**
