I love a good SciFi novel and Dark Matter TOTALLY delivered! Jason Dessen leads a humble, happy life, that is until someone decides to take it all away and change everything, throwing him into a frightening adventure through parallel timelines. He must fight the known, the unknown, and the unknown known. Every time I figured something out, there was a whole new twist! Now I need to go read some more Blake Crouch!— Staci Gray
This is a super fun mind-bender of a read! At first it seems like a straightforward sci-fi, travel-between-parallel-universes kind of narrative. Sci-fi fans may think they've read, or seen, this story before. But then it changes, and things get really weird. Crouch doesn't pull his punches in this book, and he takes his characters down some pretty dark roads while exploring some interesting consequences of existing in a multi-verse where one really can move between them. A motivated reader could finish this book in one sitting. The story is certainly compelling enough!— Sarah H.
“Dark Matter is equal parts science fiction, thriller, and theoretical self-examination, complete with an overarching love story. Crouch does a fantastic job of keeping readers grounded while traveling through multiple dimensions, and he offers introspection on how each of the life choices a person makes recreates that person in a new and profound way. I tore through this, waiting for --and finding -- a spectacular conclusion. A must-read!”
