Book Review: Dark Matter


This book was so very good. It was completely overwhelming and horrifying. It was gripping so fast-paced. I read this book in one day, it has been on my mind ever since. It was just one of those books that will stay with me forever. 

This book is compelling and such a mystery. It was like a puzzle that I just had to solve. It makes you think, it makes you re-evaluate everything.  This book took me out of my comfort zone and is the most insane thing I have ever read. 
I suppose we’re both just trying to come to terms with how horrifying infinity really is.
The book follows Jason who has just been abducted.  During this time he somehow is traveled into another world? Or has he? Was this all a dream? In his normal life he as a wife, and is just your run of the mill college physics professor. Apparently, he is a genius who has achieved something crazy. Something that will change the world.  This book will keep you guessing the whole way through. 

There is a lot happening in this book. The story is so intense and there are many twists and turns that will keep you guess. This book is the entire package. This has so many surprises, so many emotional scenes. This is a very wild ride 

This isn't a five-star book for me for a few reasons. The first being the writing style wasn't my favorite. It wasn't the worst obviously, but it had enough issues for me to notice. Secondly, it isn't a book I enjoyed enough to re-read again. 

As always I received this book for review from Blogging For Books. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Goodreads Description: 


“Are you happy with your life?” Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. Before he awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits. Before a man Jason’s never met smiles down at him and says, “Welcome back, my friend.” 

In this world he’s woken up to, Jason’s life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable--something impossible.

Is it this world or the other that’s the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could’ve imagined—one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe.
