Book Review: Dark Matter


I wanted to step out of my comfort zone a little bit for 2024 and explore some other genres in my reading. I had heard great things about this book by Blake Crouch, but I was a little apprehensive because it was being labeled as science fiction and I haven't read science fiction... maybe ever? I do love watching sci-fi shows so I knew if I could just find the right book I would be fine. 
Fingers crossed!
So when my husband and I decided to take a 48-hour digital detox the weekend before New Year's Day we needed a book we could read together. It was the perfect push I needed to get started on Dark Matter.
Honestly, right from the start, I was intrigued. I loved this book from the beginning, which was a relief because I was afraid that the subject matter would be too over my head or too complicated to carry a good plot. I had to stop myself from reading late into the night! I wanted to keep a relatively close pace with the hubby so I held back a little bit the first day. 
But by the second day, we were both sailing through this one!
Our main character, Jason, stumbles into a world he doesn't recognize and he can't quite remember how he got there. He is a college physics professor who has a relatively comfortable life with thoughts we all have about our past like, what if I would've chosen path A instead of path B?
The author takes us step by step, chapter by chapter telling us what choices Jason made that got him to this point.
Personally, I loved the pace of this book and I also feel like the ending was satisfying.
Highly recommend! 5 Stars!
