I’d previously read Dark Matter by Blake Crouch and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I decided to read it again in 2021 after reading Recursion. Blake writes mind-bending novels, and so what I wrote about Recursion also applies to Dark Matter:
What can I say about this mind-bending book without giving anything away? It’s a breathless, sci-fi thriller with so many twists and turns it often left my head spinning. After reluctantly putting the book down at bedtime I would settle down trying to work it out, often struggling to fully comprehend all the existential and philosophical questions raised.
‘Dark Matter’ is a bestselling tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human – a relentlessly surprising thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we’ll go to claim the lives we dream of. Source
Note: I understand that both of the books are being made into movies, but I would recommend you read them first rather than waiting for them on the big screen.
