DARK MATTER – BLAKE CROUCH


The best book I have ever read in my entire life. Dark Matter is a brilliant book which combines scientific possibilities, human nature and simply bizarre happenings into one great book. Blake Crouch is a true mastermind. In this book, Jason Dessen, a normal, middle-class man with a loving family is kidnapped by an unknown person. He is then asked one question, “Are you happy in your life” before his world changes forever. Blake Crouch weaves an intricate story saturated with suspense, awe and fear to satisfy any reader’s appetite. After that, Jason wakes up to find himself in a world in which he is a famous scientist. Shocked, Jason tries to investigate and finds that his son never existed and his wife is a single woman and an established artist. Finally, Jason understands the quantum complexity of the situation, he finds out that there are an infinite number of universes, each one having different scenarios of a single moment. If this is true, then that means that another version of Jason did this to him, he himself did this to him. Through how many universes, how much pain and how much anguish will Jason have to travel through to get his world, wife and children back?
