I love Thursday nights. They have a feel to them that's outside of time. It's our tradition, just the three of us – family night.”


Dark Matter was crazy interesting, nerve wracking, and amazingly twisty. Besides, it was super easy for me to get lost in this story. It took turns that I hadn't expected at all. I loved that it completely messed with my brain, like all the time, and that it was perfectly complex. I REALLY (like really, really much) love the unknown within science and the universe and space and time that Dark Matter is based on. If I could, I would talk about it all the time. I want to read more novels like this one, for sure! This book also made me believe that I, actually, may enjoy science fiction more than I thought I did. Maybe.

I recommend this book to you who, like myself, like theories about the universe and space, existence and science (fiction).

What is it about?

“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.

Have you read this book? What did you think? :)
