A mindbending, relentlessly surprising thriller from the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy. "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.   Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human--a relentlessly surprising science-fiction thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we'll go to claim the lives we dream of.… (mere)

This book was a gift to me and I have never read anything by this author. I was pleasantly surprised. The book focuses on the story of Jason Dessen, his wife Daniela and their son Charlie. Jason is a professor at a college in Chicago and Daniela is a stay-at-home mom. When they met, Daniela was on the verge of a career as an artist and Jason was a physicist. Then they find out Daniela is pregnant. They both give up their careers for their child. The story begins with the 3 of them at home. Jason goes out to have drinks at a local bar with a friend and then gets some ice cream and is walking back home. On his way, he is abducted and brought to a "hangar" with a bunch of generators in it. His abductor injects Jason with something and then injects himself. Jason comes to and turns out he's an executive at a laboratory who created a "cube" with doors that lead someone to an alternate reality. Makes you think about the choices you make and what would have happened had you not made that choice. ( )

i absolutely loved this book. great characters and concepts with many thrilling and tragic moments through out. the whole idea with alternate universes is not only a cool and crazy idea but it also reminds me of one of my favorite video game stories being Zero Escape 999 in some ways. so i was instantly hooked and can say this might be a contender of being an all time favorite for me ( )

This is a fast-reading science-fiction thriller, and every time I picked it up, I sped forward in reading it. Without any doubt, Crouch did an absolutely stellar job with his concept, and for the most part, he made believable characters. I was rooting for the protagonist throughout, and enjoying the twists.

That said, it was an oddly stressful read because it moved so fast and things remained so desperate throughout. There were also some loose ends that I'd have preferred be cleared up, although I understand why they weren't, given the POV, and so those don't even bother me particularly. But all told, I'm not sure when/if I'll read more Crouch work. It was almost too much, too fast, and too open-ended for me to be 100% satisfied.

Still, it's a fantastic book worth reading. I'm just not sure I want more of the same flavor. ( )

[2024] picked up an unwelcome (are they ever welcome?) virus on a recent trip - a virus for which I had been vaccinated against, at least a few variants of, and haven’t had the brain for the heavier stuff as I convalesce. I decided to revisit some Crouch works. I saw this one has been adapted to a series coming out later this year so picked it first have a gift/curse of being able to dump things I no longer need (and unfortunately, of course, some things I do) so rereading something I’d read as recently as six years ago … even something I liked - can still seem fairly new. Reading this again after some other Crouch bits, I can see the television chops. The perspective is a little different but still nonetheless a thriller. This time I caught “Like a half-remembered dream.” I like to listen to some soundtracks and one I’ve listened to (literally) more than 200 times is Hans Zimmer’s great score for Inception and one segment is called “Half-remembered Dream”

[2018] This was in one of my book suggestion emails ("Since you read Ready Player One, you might like..."). I'd read the other three recommendations (Andy Weir's The Martian and Artemis, and Cline's Armada) and liked them, so...

I don't like to spoil plots in fiction in my comments/review, even with a warning disclaimer. My notes are observations and impressions...others can spoil it for new readers. I finished this a couple of days ago and have been trying to find the words to describe those observations and impressions without giving away more than the published description. I found the book to be what some would call a "thriller." The early parts were deliberately disconcerting as Crouch laid the groundwork for the impossible situation his lead character Jason finds himself in, and Crouch did that very well. What follows is that main character trying to return to the life from which he was plucked, and again, without giving anything away, I thought of a popular science fiction television show which this paralleled somewhat (before the show shark jumped partway through its third season...you'll know which I mean if you've seen it.) In one part, early on, the character's actions were at odds with the logic of the development, but later, completely consistent with frustration and futility expected. The pace accelerated, crescendo-ing into an unexpected fugue (the surprise was real for me, which is a rarity). Vague? I said I didn't want to spoil it.

A serendipitous find...okay, suggestion. ( )
