Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

dark matterI’m full of emotion for this book. I’ve been waiting to read this one for quite some time. Multiple people have raved about it even after I had already added it to my “must reads” list.

Jason has the american dream – a beautiful wife, a wonderful son, and a job as a professor. He occasionally finds himself thinking about what could have been – but he’s okay with what he has. Until, he gets kidnapped one night, drugeed, and finds himself awake to a life that could have been – the dream job for him and his wife. The problem is, he isn’t happy with it. He’s not married, he doesn’t have a son, and every one thinks he’s gone completely mad. Will he ever find his way back to his family?

I knew I would be mad at myself for waiting so long to read this book….

And yess, I am quite mad. I devoured this book in one sitting. IT IS SO GOOD! It’s an emotional and empowering read. The constant question you ask yourself through the entire book is “am I happy with my own life?” It’s the same question the main characters find themselves asking each other. This book makes you look at your life in a whole different light. This would be an amazing movie by the way (I have read that there is talk of it happening). I need to read more books just like this – any other suggestions?

5/5 Stars

  1. That sounds an amazing read – and is another one I REALLY want to get hold of… and no – while I’ve read some cracking books this year – the last time I read a book that had that effect on me was After Atlas by Emma Newman…
