Dark Matter Reviews
This reread on Audio was good! I enjoyed the narrator!
I just read the craziest book and it was so good. I was going along wanting to find out what in the world has happened to Jason! Why has he lost his identity. Who are these people after him! I mean one minute, you have a wife and kid and then you don't. Your in another world .. ish.
AND. THEN. IT. WAS. DOWN. THE. RABBIT. HOLE. Just trying to enjoy this book and they lured me right on down that hole!
So now. What am I going to say in this rev ...more
congratulations! semifinalist in goodreads' best science fiction category 2016!
what is this book….???
i suppose it's best described as a sci fi/speculative fiction love story with philosophy sauce all over it.
it's also another one of those reviewing-on-eggshells books, because of all the spoilers that could possibly be spoilt, where we're going to have to dance our way around a bunch of important nouns and verbs.
so, this little puzzle book of genre-blending mastery... i know i wrote "love story" ...more
It's terrifying when you consider that every thought we have, every choice we could possibly make, creates a new world.
Dark Matter, to be blunt, is miles and miles away from the line that marks my ‘‘comfort zone.’’ I never, or very, very seldom, read books such as this one.
But the truth is, I never read a book like Dark Matter before.
It’s a love story, it’s a thriller, it’s a science fiction book.
It’s thought-provoking, gripping, action-filled.
It makes you think about life and family and what ...more
*****NO SPOILERS, I SWEAR.*****
”What if all the pieces of belief and memory that comprise who I am--my profession, Daniela, my son--are nothing but a tragic misfiring in that gray matter between my ears? Will I keep fighting to be the man I think I am? Or will I disown him and everything he loves, and step into the skin of the person this world would like for me to be?
And if I have lost my mind, what then?
What if everything I know is wrong?
I am not losing my mind.”
There is nothing more ...more
Review was originally published on Through the Chapters|Blog
"We all live day to day completely oblivious to the fact that we're a part of a much larger and stranger reality than we can possibly imagine.”
I can securely declare that this book have changed the way I perceive the world and my existence in the universe.
But first things first. Dark Matter portraits an ordinary, middle aged professor, Jason Dessen, having a peaceful evening with his wife and his teenage son. After his decision to m ...more
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch was a very addicting read! It was mostly a science fiction novel with a little bit of romance and some suspense to make it a most enjoyable read. All three of those components is what I really liked about this novel. I was hooked from the very first chapter!
While the story started out really strong for me there were some portions of this novel that I just didn't get and it was a little hard to follow the mechanics of it all. I think that if there was less o ...more
Ohhhh boy I am daunted by the idea of writing this review.
As many people know, I do a VERY adorable thing where I read a book and then don’t feel like reviewing it straight away so I put it off for a bit and then suddenly it’s been four months and I don’t remember a godforsaken thing about it and I am a shell of the person I used to be when I read the book and the shell of a person isn’t where the book memories are stored!!
Also part of this adorable review-writing process: starting out infinite ...more

*Thank you to Netgalley and Pan Macmillan for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review*
Well - what a ride that was! Not just any old roller coaster ride though (definitely not) but one that was really quite unique. What's this ride about? Well, it's definitely a thrill a minute ride that's for sure, but it's also a love story between Jason & Daniela Dessen, and if that isn't enough, it's mixed with a great big dollop of sci-fi.
The opening scene is one of complete dom ...more
