This book is insane and I loved it! This one will keep you up late at night, eager to find out what happens next!
“Are you happy in your life?”
I had won this book in a Read it Forward giveaway (book provided by Crown Publishing). This book has been on my radar since I saw it in May at BookCon and saw that gorgeous cover!
Let me just start off by saying I’m not a science person. I don’t understand half of it at times, so books like Dark Matter make me nervous. I was leery of not being able to understand the explanations of quantum physics. However, Blake Crouch does a wonderful job of not explaining all the science parts of this book without losing me.
That being said, this is not just a science fiction book—it’s a mix of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, thriller, suspense, a survival story, and (in my opinion) a love story.
“I don’t look back.
I don’t say goodbye.
And this moment slips past unnoticed.
The end of everything I know, everything I love.”
What I loved most about this book was seeing the single minded determination he had to get back to his family. The only thing that drives him when he is at his lowest is thoughts of his wife and son. He has to go through this terrifying journey to get back to them and it had me turning the pages to find out what would happen next.
I definitely recommend this if you like any of the categories I mentioned earlier, and if you were fans of The Martian by Andy Weir.
My Rating: 5 stars
