Dark Matter: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Blake Crouch

Narrated By: Jon Lindstrom

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: July 2016

Duration: 10 hours 9 minutes


A mindbending, relentlessly surprising thriller from the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy.

“Are you happy with your life?”
Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious.
Before he awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits.
Before a man Jason’s never met smiles down at him and says, “Welcome back, my friend.” 
In this world he’s woken up to, Jason’s life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.
Is it this world or the other that’s the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could’ve imagined—one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe.
Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human—a relentlessly surprising science-fiction thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we’ll go to claim the lives we dream of.

    A spiritual primer about choice disguised as a popular thriller. Ok!Most of it excellent – I was very entertained as I was educated – learned a lot!

    I thought the book was very well written and listened even at home rather than only in my car. I've read several of the author's books and found this one to be one of the best. It would make a great movie. My only criticism is of the final chapters which doesn't seem to flow quite as well as earlier ones. A little disappointed in the ending.

  • Natalie K

    Interesting, and fast paced. A thriller but not gory. It really makes you think.

  • Ellijah C

    Excellent thriller. No soft spots, excitement around every corner!
