Dark Matter: A Novel

Dark Matter: A Novel - Blake Crouch Oh. My. God!!!

Seriously, this book was sooooo good! If I didn't actually have responsibilities like work and children, I'm pretty sure I would have finished this book in one setting! If was so damn engaging and the action was non-stop! Even the science was fascinating and compelling. It's dumbed down enough to actually be understandable, so you're not left feeling spoken down to while still not understanding WTF is going on.

I dropped science in school, but in the last couple of years I've become more and more fascinated by it. Probably once I started watching Doctor Who and started realizing how huge the universe is. But now, not only is the universe infinite, but thanks to this book (even though I've heard the theory before) it's even more infinite thanks to the multiverse theory. To think that there are other versions of me living different versions of my life... I mean that's insane... but it isn't, which is even more insane!

I honestly don't know how to review the story without giving away any spoilers, so I'm not even going to try. I also usually have a hard time writing a coherent review when I've loved a book this much, as it takes a while to process this amazement and awe I feel for an author who is able to create such a unique world and story. Suffice it to say that this is instantly my favorite book of 2016.
