'Are you happy in your life?'Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. Before he wakes to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits. Before the man he'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.From the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy, Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human - a relentlessly surprising thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we'll go to claim the lives we dream of.… (mais)

Wow! What a thrill ride - this book hit all of my buttons. Exciting and mind-bending! ( )
  KrakenTamer | Oct 23, 2021 |
Wildly implausible, and I'm pretty sure there are some plot holes or paradoxes in there somewhere, but a pretty good mindf*ck. Reads like a really good first draft. I felt it could have been honed and refined some more. For example, the book barely scratches the surface of the psychological implications. The author settles for a genre exercise, but it could have been more. Would have been fun if it had had a fatalistic, Noirish vibe. A solid if slightly disappointing read. ( )

The only complaint I have about this book is that it could have (or rather *should have*) been much longer. It's hard to write about it without spoiling anything, but I feel that a few more chapters of exploration and character building would have added to the experience. ( )

This is one mind-bending and mind-blowing book that is a solid 5 stars for me from start to end. Although I had somehow managed to predict some of the parts of the plot, the writing and the depiction blew me away.

This one took the saying "You are your own worst enemy" to the limit.

Now I wish I can take that amnesia pill to forget this book & read it all over again. Again & again. ( )

This is a thrilling plot that I tore through in three days. I must have had a dozen people tell me it was like my novel, so I had to read it. Well, both novels use the ‘many worlds’ theory as a central plot device and both examine the opportunity to relive parts of your life, and both books take place in Chicago, but that’s really where the similarities end. This book is really a very well done, action thriller, mine is much less action, more drama and philosophy. “Dark Matter” reads almost like a screenplay and I’m sure it will be an excellent movie. Crouch is a superb writer, clever and bright, and writes action as well as anyone. I really don’t want to discuss the plot much, as that’s one of the strengths of this book, is where Crouch takes the concept of parallel universes/multi-dimensions. It's best to go into this book with a minimal understanding of the plot.

I was a little thrown off by his use of short paragraphs. Often, he inserts breaks even when there is no change in scene, idea, or really anything to deserve a paragraph break. Many times, it’s just a series of breaks at every sentence. I don’t think it’s a misunderstanding of the rules, I think it’s an intentional device to create a staccato feel. After I lived with it for a while, it didn’t bother me, and I think it achieved what was intended. Being a speed reader, not much takes me out of the story, and these rapid-fire sentences probably kept me focused on the details more than a traditional approach.

As I said, I don’t want to reveal any of the plot, I’ll just say this story moves fast, keeps you guessing, and finishes strong. I enjoyed it all the way though. Five stars! I’m looking forward to the movie and to reading the next novel, “Recursion”. ( )
