4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas "What might have been and what has been point to one end, which is always present" 29 de noviembre de 2016
Por Benjamin T. Payne - Publicado en
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
I've always been afraid of the multiverse theory. Until I read Dark Matter.

Before I read this story, I found it terrifying to know that there may very well be an infinite number of alternate me's on an infinite number of alternate universes.

After having read this story, I now appreciate this me and this world more than I ever have. I'm unapologetic about who I am, and who I am not.

This isn't a story about time travel, although it has some of the trappings of one: a futuristic teleportational device, and a disenchanted main character obsessed with what would have been.

Rather than traveling to the past or the future, Jason Dessen opens the door—literally—to the present. Alternate presents, in alternate Chicagos, from alternate universes.

Throughout the second half of the story, Jason tries to return home, after having been abducted and thrown into an alternate universe.

It's the universe he's always dreamed of. The one where he's an internationally renown quantum physicist. The one where he's the boss of his own company. The one where he's reached his fullest potential as a scientist.

But it's also the one where he never got married to the love of his life. It's the one where he never had his one and only son. It's the one where he has no family.

It's this universe that Jason attempts to find—through grueling trial and error.

I can't give anything more away without ruining the story for future readers, but I can give you what I believe to be the moral of the story: live in the present moment, because that is where your true identity lies.

The second quarter of the book lags, with Jason evading capture more times than necessary to advance the plot. (Twice he narrowly escapes through a bathroom. One lavatory getaway is plenty.)

I give Dark Matter 40 Jason Dessens out of 50. Read the book, and you'll understand my rating system.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Pretty Run of the Mill Thriller 10 de abril de 2017

This is a conceptually deep novel, taking as its subject quantum mechanics and the existence of an infinite number of realities, existing simultaneously. This “multiverse” has been accessed by a brilliant physicist who is the protagonist of the story. According to the theory, at each decision point in your life, separate and distinct realities emerge, which continue forward, sprouting their own branches, as new decisions are confronted.

With this theory in place, the author has penned a thriller, with his subject discovering how to navigate the multiverse and access different and perhaps more desirable realities, even confronting his own alternate reality self in an effort to effect a “reality swap” of sorts.

This is a very fast read, consumable in two or three days. The science is certainly challenging from a conceptual standpoint, though not necessarily vital to understanding the story, which is a pretty standard, run of the mill thriller.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out that there is an extremely significant “plot hole” that develops near the end of the novel which is incompatible with the author’s multiverse theory. Nevertheless, the book is engaging and thought provoking.

A science fiction mystery love-story thriller! Who would have thought that the theory of quantum mechanics could be so much fun? Crouch explores the science through a story that makes us wonder: what would have happened if...? We make so many choices in life; sometimes the smallest decisions can have such far-reaching consequences. The story also makes us wonder what is truly essential to defining who we are; do different life experiences fundamentally change us or do we retain our core selves regardless of life's experiences? Crouch's story is so well told that I was hurriedly flipping pages toward the end, to find out what would happen next. Still smiling over the fun of reading such a well-crafted book. My slight criticism is the loose ends, like Amanda, where the boxes all came from, and how evil the experimenters -- and Jason -- were.
Crouch suggested we watch the Ted Talk by Aaron O’Connell entitled “Making Sense of a Visible Quantum Object.” Well worth the few minutes.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Review of Dark Matter 3 de abril de 2017
Por Greenman - Publicado en

Wow.....I got this book while I was reading some others and thought I could get to it in a few weeks. I have always been a fan of multiverse books and a Google search listed this book. I had read all of the Wayward Pines books and a few others like Run written by Mr Crouch and figured it was worth a shoot.

I decided to read a few pages to just get the flavor of the story and I was blown away. I stopped reading everything else and just had to find out if Jason could even figure out how to work the multiverse box yet get back to his Daniela. The possible universes he/we could create at Dr disappoints are truly staggering and although I am a bit skeptical about how so many universes could exist, the story handled all these different universes very well. Mr Crouch said this was his most difficult story and I can see why.

If you are a fan of alternate universe theories and how our decisions can lead us to different outcomes, give this book a try. Be ready for a he'll of a ride.

A good read.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Mind-bending and expanding. Sci-fi at its best. 16 de febrero de 2017

‘Dark Matter’ turned out to live up to all the hype I’ve been hearing. Although I was starting to doubt the great reviews I’d read because it takes half of the novel for things to get heated up, but when they do, it takes off in a fiery blast.

The protagonist, Jason, was the type of character that took me a while to warm up to. I guess because he flailed about so much. Reacting to the bizarre. But what else could he do? There was so much of it thrown at him in the first half that we didn't get to know him. It wasn't until his strength and hope started to get tested (along with his sanity) that I started to connect with him.

Amanda, fellow traveler, I felt could have been more poignant to the story – she added some psychologist wisdom as to the psyche and the multiverse, and even about the impact of facing infinity... I feel there was a missed opportunity to drive home a point at the heart of this novel - fear, inevitability and infinitesimally small nature of things. Mind blown. Instead she felt more or less like a non-event. With enjoying her take on the situation I wanted more of her in the story than we got.

Jason’s wife and son really make the narrative with their added perspective. And it's needed because this novel gets hella cray-cray. You’ll understand when you read it.

‘Dark Matter’ got waaay better after the half way mark, as I mentioned earlier, getting to know Jason, and setting up the premise of the science behind ‘Dark Matter’ takes a while. But once you get past that hump it is extremely engaging - I stayed up late to finish it. The tension and pacing were expertly crafted.

I had difficulty with any predictions on how it was going to turn out- the nature of the science and the bleak tone of the novel just leaves you with a feeling of despondency. Why? And it's a marvelous experience to be kept on the edge of your seat. Bravo Blake Crouch!

It still only feels like we've scratched the surface too - that's how massive the concept to this novel is. I think I sat there staring off into space for a while after finishing, trying to take it all in.
‘Dark Matter’ has a brilliant ending. Very satisfying. Highly entertaining. I'd been told it was great, and it certainly did not disappoint. There is even a little moral lesson from Jason’s wife that I thought added something extra.

There is something distinctly masculine and dry about Blake’s writing style – I found myself frequently putting this book down for a rest. The story is certainly amazing, action packed, and science nerd porn. Chock full of all the elements I love in a story, but there was something about the narrative which didn’t grab me straight away when I started reading ‘Dark Matter.’ Definitely recommend it though, especially if you like your more obtuse science fiction references.
