I thought this was a really unique, dark & twisty read, and I loved it! Crouch has a way of talking about these huge intricate things but in a really down-to-earth way that makes it seamless to follow right along. It was really fast paced and it honestly kept me on the edge of my seat the entire tim...

AudiobookI liked this book a lot up until there were over 100 SPOILER!! [Jason's], then it got a lot ridiculous. So 4 stars for 80% of the book.

If you are looking for something that keeps you engaged on long commutes, you really can't do better than Blake Crouch. This one has some holes in the logic. Also, you are figuring out things chapters before the hero, which makes him seem a bit stupid. It's no Wayward Pines, that's for sure. On ...

I am happy to report that now that I’ve finished my brain is no more broken than it was before I began Dark Matter. So i...

Honestly I think that for the most part I was bored by this book. I think the fact that I am a girl that has grown up reading Stephen King, none of the plot points in this book were surprising to me. Dark Matter follows the character of Jason Dessen after he is abducted by a mysterious man in a ma...

Dark Matter is probably the fastest book I've read in a long time. I just didn't want to put it down. And when I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it. I'm not sure I buy into the concept of parallel worlds, but I like thinking about the possibility. This book was successful in making me think ...

Great book! I was amazed how I went from not liking it to page-turning frenzy on the second half of the book. I think the only flaw of the book is the start, in the beginning it feels like a long persecution with over described action scenes (at least for my taste) without not much background inform...
