Description

A mindbending, relentlessly surprising thriller from the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy.

“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.
 
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.

  • What any great sci-fi ought to be

    Pay no mind to anyone that says it needs more science. It establishes the theoretical sci-fi premise early on in the story, then it leaves the science alone. The story is not about science. As any great sci-fi, it is about humanity and human relationships. It teaches us things about ourselves and our existence by providing a lens for reflection. What we do with that lens is up to us. Crouch provided the lens, and I provided the introspection to my own enjoyment. Not to mention it's a light read. It moves at a breezy pace. It's easy to accept the wildly fictional premise with all its little plot holes and enjoy the ride.
  • Loved it!

    For 3/4 of the book I was engrossed. But like so many thriller style books, the author lost steam and it felt like the ending was being forced. It almost seemed like he was writing the ending with the 'movie' rights in mind.

    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.

    It started off pretty tame and around a third of the way through I wasn't sure I really wanted to invest anymore time into the set up of the story. KEEP reading!! It's a pretty unique story line and I really enjoyed it. Not heavy on the science part of the story line, but enough to make it plausible.
