What did I just read??
Truly mind-blowing, Dark Matters asks the reader to remember a time in their life where they made a decision that set them on track to who they are now, a moment that has defined them. If given the chance, would they make that same decision or…? If you knew the second chance offered you the wealth and prestige you let slip from your grasp, would you take it? And—deal breaker for me—what if the family you created and loved was not a part of that second chance? Last question, would you regret your final decision?
It makes you think, doesn’t it?
Filled with lots of scientific gobbled-gook that I had to skim over, Dark Matters is a hell of a book. I mean, I did learn about Schrondinger’s Cat. So many twists. So many monkey wrenches. So many times my eyes popped open wide as I said “NO WAY!!”
It’s a crazy, crazy book that just speeds along like a train looking to wreck. Highly highly recommend for time travel nerds, sci-fi geeks, thriller freaks, conspiracy theorists and Blake Crouch fans everywhere.
So, to be more vague, a man uncovers the secret of traveling among parallel universes. Of course, this knowledge is put to sinister use. It's not sinister in a "destroy the world" kind of way, just in a "destroy a man's life" kind of way. Once done, that man must seek to get back to the life he left and the one he wants more than anything. There's a significant twist in there, but one will have to read the book to understand it.
I could not put the book down. I'm not a scientist by any means, but I even found some of the more scientific passages riveting. I would probably give it a 4.5 if I could, only because there are bits in the middle during the "exploration" stage of things that dragged just a bit. Our primary protagonist...for lack of a better description...is aided by a woman, and I would also have liked to known for sure what came of her once she leaves the story. One can guess, though.
There's mind-blowing twist toward the end that I never saw coming. In short, I've been recommending this book to everyone. It's a trip well worth taking!
Two words: MIND-BENDING
What a compelling and thought provoking story.
"It’s the beautiful thing about youth. There’s a weightlessness that permeates everything because no damning choices have been made, no paths committed to, and the road forking out ahead is pure, unlimited potential."
I was consumed from the very beginning and I couldn't put my kindle down because I needed answers.
"My life is great. It’s just not exceptional. And there was a time when it could have been.”
“You killed your ambition, didn’t you?”
“It died of natural causes. Of neglect.”
Every damn time I thought I knew what would happen next....I was so very wrong. And there were moments when my heart really hurt and I wasn't expecting that. Like not even a little bit! I felt for Jason at every moment and I felt his regret to my very core. I felt his every emotion. It was so incredibly exhausting and exciting! *whispers it was a rollercoaster ride*
Thrillers really aren't my thing but maybe I've been missing out all this time. *hugs DARK MATTER book*
I'm not a Super Reader (super what? super WHY!) but I'd say the last book I read sorta kinda similar to this was Unhappenings by Edward Aubrey (EDDIE!!!) which I also enjoyed. For some reason I really partially think it could be said that if you liked The Forever War you'd probably like this one as well -- however The Forever War was more serious about it's science fiction if I recall correctly.
If you like enjoyable books I'd recommend this one to you. The less you know about it going in the better, IMNSHO. It's a pretty common "science fiction" theme but worth the read.
I believe my total reading time was a few nights (I only get to pleasure read in the PM after the rest of the household dwellers are snug in their beds). I think I could have finished this in a day at the beach if it wasn't so hot I felt like getting in the ocean to cool down every time I got sweaty, and there was no one there to ask me for food, drinks or to "watch this."
I'd say if you're on the fence about this book to go ahead and buy it. In fact, I know at least one of you will.
