Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

As you look back on your life, do you see forks in the road – clear points in time where you made a decision and left another possible life behind? For Jason Dessen, a college physics professor, those abandoned possibilities are about to catch up with him. Dark Matter is a dark quantum physics thriller woven with an intimate story of love lost – and the lengths one goes to regain it.

Blake Crouch spins this yarn in a suspenseful and twisty way that leaves you guessing the whole way through. Themes of lost opportunity and a realization that the grass is not always greener follow our main character throughout, compelling the reader to push on.

This is a truly wonderful read. Crouch challenges us, through a surprisingly science fiction path, to reconsider regrets, and embrace that which we already have. Crown Publishing has gripped my attention with Dark Matter. You can find Dark Matter at major retailers and your local independent booksellers everywhere.
