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.… (mais)

Jason teaches college physics who gave up his chance to do ground-breaking research in his field in favor of starting a family with his beautiful artist wife. Both gave up promising careers for middling ones in order to put their marriage and raising their now-teenage son first. And both are happy with the decision with essentially no regrets beyond the occasional, casual ‘what if’ thoughts. Jason goes out one night to meet some old friends at a bar (a former college roommate has just won a prestigious physics award), and he doesn’t come back. He’s kidnapped, drugged, and wakes up in an alternate universe version of his life, one in which he never married and instead did the ground-breaking work he gave up in his own world. That research? Inventing a box that allows one to travel through the multiverse. He spends the rest of the book running from his colleagues in that world and searching for a way back to his own universe, his own version of his wife and son.

Meh. Typical first-person Capable White Man Doing Impressive Things While Running from Bad Guys and Fighting for His Best Girl thriller. But with Science! I guess? Not really my cuppa, I suppose. ( )

Dark Matter is full of twists and turns. It had a little bit of thriller a little horror and lots of sci-fi while still being fast past and immersive. It had a multiverse full of several multi dimensions, doppelgängers and a kidnapping. I was thoroughly entertained. The only bad thing was it ended on a cliffhanger and I want to know more! ( )

A unique, intense story that took the book world by storm. It's a constant shuffle of frantic confusion, mind-bending science fiction, and elaborate cat and mouse play. Hard to put down and well-written, Dark Matter isn't a forgettable book and deserves its reputation. For me, though, it didn't have full chemistry since I dislike plots similar - lives getting lost, losing sense of reality, the person isn't believed, extreme sci-fi type stuff - but I enjoyed the story's overall focus. The ending offered a little rating redemption, too.

This book was a gift to me and I have never read anything by this author. I was pleasantly surprised. The book focuses on the story of Jason Dessen, his wife Daniela and their son Charlie. Jason is a professor at a college in Chicago and Daniela is a stay-at-home mom. When they met, Daniela was on the verge of a career as an artist and Jason was a physicist. Then they find out Daniela is pregnant. They both give up their careers for their child. The story begins with the 3 of them at home. Jason goes out to have drinks at a local bar with a friend and then gets some ice cream and is walking back home. On his way, he is abducted and brought to a "hangar" with a bunch of generators in it. His abductor injects Jason with something and then injects himself. Jason comes to and turns out he's an executive at a laboratory who created a "cube" with doors that lead someone to an alternate reality. Makes you think about the choices you make and what would have happened had you not made that choice. ( )
