Dark Matter

“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 k...

    LOVED IT!!! This book is insanity in a box! 5 stars! Believe the hype! Do not read many reviews! If you like sci fi or want something different and can suspend disbelief read or listen to this book!

    This is the audio version review! The audio narrated by actor, Jon Lindstrom, is as good as it gets! He was the perfect narrator for "Dark Matter". This man was born to narrate books! He's that good!

    "Dark Matter" starts out pretty simple and then very quickly it turns insane and just keeps getting crazier and crazier. When you think it can't get any crazier it does! Trust me! I will never look at a box the same way again! If there is a trigger warning for boxes this book should have it! Lol!

    Jason Desson is a physicist. He has been married to Daniela for years. He has a son, Charlie, who is almost 15 years old. He's generally a happy guy. He works at a college and loves his family. One day he goes to a bar. When he leaves the bar everything changes! That's it. That's all the plot summery I'm giving you because from there I would be going into spoiler territory.

    I will share one quote that I think avoids spoilers, but might peak your curiosity: "Is it possible to outthink yourself". Boom! And that's all folks!!!

    Read it!!!

    Dr. Mr. Crouch,

    Dr. Mr. Crouch,

    I was first introduced to your work via my Aunt Janet “The Librarian” years ago; she started me off with your

    series and I knew I’d found a new favorite author. I branched out on my own and decided to try the

    series; somehow I ended up liking that even more than the previous. I was on a roll! Months ago, when I first saw your new book listed on NetGalley, it was vague and sneaky, both things I like in a book, but I decided to wait on requesting until I saw a couple of reviews. Then it hit me-everyone was describing this new book as a love story. A LOVE STORY?! No thanks; not for me. I don’t do that mushy-gushy nonsense. I was disappointed; I had really hoped for something exciting and fresh! As time went on, more of my Goodreads buds kept giving me grief to the point I agreed to read it, but I put it off as long as possible until finally I just needed to clear it off my shelf. I was still a little bitter and possibly throwing a tantrum, but I was going to read it despite your utter betrayal into the land of touchy feely.

    Boy was I wrong. I know; I should have trusted you. And I finally get all those “this is truly a love story-blah blah blah” comments, because at heart, it is just that. You made sure to include all the intelligent, thrilling components of a Blake Crouch masterpiece that made me almost cancel my date night because I had to read “just one more chapter”. I’m not sure who’s bright idea it was to release your book during this

    phenomenon, but it was genius. My brain hasn’t had to process this much science since college, and it’s given me the illusion that I can moonlight as an intellectual again. Hehe. Anyway, no plot summary, giveaways, or spoilers here, but thank you good sir for putting in the time and effort to create an unforgettable journey that is sure to stay with all its readers for years to come. I appreciate you keeping it simple enough for my brain to keep up, and hopefully I’m not the only one who feels this way. I’ll be recommending this to everyone in the near future and am sure to include this in my Top Books of 2016 round up.

    Thanks again, and looking forward to the next book. I promise to be more trusting the next go around.

    All the best,

    Chels

    Best way to sum this up - one of the most unique and original stories I have read in a long time. 75% of this book I cannot give you a similar example of from another story.

    I can see why others have said it is tough to review without spoiling. EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BEFORE IT GETS SPOILED FOR YOU!

    It is the perfect balance of suspense, action, sci-fi, romance, and WHAT THE HECK!?!? I was enthralled the entire time and did not want to put it down (but we all have to sleep and work sometime, rig

    Maybe this book isn't for you, but perhaps there is a different version of you somewhere and it is perfect for them. Do that other you justice and give this one a shot!

    Update 12/6/2016 - ARGH! This should have won the Goodreads Choice Awards! I am calling for a recount!

    This book f*cked me up.

    This book made me feel tiny. It was overwhelming and scary, but

    .

    is the kind of compelling "I must know WTF is going on" book that makes you forget about everything else you had to do that day. You step into this world - this absolute mind fuck of a world that will tug at both your heart strings and your brain cells - and you don't want to come out until you know how it ends. Real life? Who cares? Shit is going down and I need answers!

    I recently read Crouch's

    and was pretty disappointed. It was a great concept, but I thought the TV show was better and I didn't much like any of the characters. That's not a problem here. Jason Dessen goes through some serious shit and it's hard not to find sympathy for him when his life is ripped apart.

    After being abducted one night by a masked man, Jason is knocked unconscious and wakes in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by unfamiliar people who all seem to think he's somebody he isn't. What happened to him? Where are his beloved wife and son? These are questions that he will try to answer. But, as he discovers more and more about his situation, he starts to doubt what is real and what is not. Doubt whether he'll ever make it back to his life. Doubt whether it ever even existed at all.

    And just when you think you got it. When you think you've wrapped your brain around where this book is taking you and what's going on - well, buckle your seat belts, because this ride is about to get a whole lot crazier. In a good way.

    It's

    . I felt connected to the book on a personal level because I shared Jason's horror and the fear that he would never make it back to the family he loves. So it was emotionally engaging. But it was also thought-provoking. I could feel my eyes getting wider as I read further into the story.

    The sort of "twist" in the plot is the perfect kind. One of those that I really should have seen coming - it was so obvious! - and yet I didn't. At all. So so good.
