Loved it. Clever, fast paced. Had butterflies in my stomach and sitting on the edge of my car seat. The ideas in this book had my head spinning at times- in a good way. Made me think about my life and ask...what if...
Love Blake Crouch, the story line was intriguing, made I feel that my life is perfect.
If you could sum up Dark Matter in three words, what would they be?
It's more than three words I know but - Initially confusing but quickly mesmerising to listen to as you start to understand the plot
What other book might you compare Dark Matter to, and why?
I cannot think of any other book that is anything like this one. A combination of thriller, adventure and sci-fi with a spot of romance thrown in for good measure.
What about Jon Lindstrom’s performance did you like?
I enjoyed listening to Jon's voice and I am pleased to say his "female" voices didn't grate on me as much as they usually do when read my a man. I have to say he really "became" the main character in my head as he was talking which I always take as a good thing - that point where you forget there is actually a narrator there and simply get caught up in the story.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were several places that really did make you feel for the main character who is excellently written and you come to believe you really know the man.
At several points I really felt that perhaps this novel wouldn't have a happy ending and I was surprised how much I wanted the main character to triumph in the end as I tend to enjoy stories with less conventional endings.
Any additional comments?
I'm not sure quite how to describe this book as the slightly sci-fi premise involved is a little complicated to start with and in the first few chapters the reader is really wondering what is going on as much as the main character is (in a good way, I might add)
If you enjoy a novel where you have to think then this one is likely to be for you, if you want an easy listen - maybe not.
That said it takes the reader through a distinct journey with the main character and in many places I really felt I was there with him. There are places I certainly wouldn't have been able to press the pause switch for sure.
Definitely worth taking a chance on if you are not familiar with this author as I wasn't at the time I bought it.

Fast paced, excellent listen, and superb story. A lead character that you care about and a fantastic glimpse into the multiverse

A grippingly real expedition into the depths of the uncanny and infinite. Highly recommended, especially for fans of Coherence, Inception, and psychedelics

Excellent. Really imaginative towards the second half. Lots to think about. Sliding doors type of thing.
