Inhaltsangabe

"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.

From the author of the best-selling Wayward Pines trilogy, 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.

Kritikerstimmen

"Brilliant. A book to remember. I think Blake Crouch just invented something new." (Lee Child, New York Times best-selling author of the Jack Reacher series)
"Exceptional. An exciting, ingeniously plotted adventure about love, regret, and quantum superposition. It's been a long time since a novel sucked me in and kept me turning pages the way this one did." (Andy Weir, New York Times best-selling author of The Martian)
"Wow. I gulped down Dark Matter in one sitting and put it down awed and amazed by the ride. It's fast, smart, addictive - and the most creative, head-spinning novel I've read in ages. A truly remarkable thriller." (Tess Gerritsen, New York Times best-selling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series)

A nice novel about self reflection

The book has some interesting ideas and it is nicely written. But the physics interpretation is very poor. Just don't think you learn anything about quantum mechanics. (consciousness does not break down super positions) Other than that good book.

This story will have you on the edge of your seat.

Original and suspenseful story that brings up the 'what if' question we often ask ourselves and had me questioning every decision I ever made.

Finally, a story truly different from the rest

What a plot! Not just fiction, it's mind boggling what a creative person can do with a theorem of physics. Must read/listen!

Intense

A well constructed remake for a new generation of time travel fans. With more character background than in the 70th

Sehr spannendes SciFi-Hörbuch

Zum Inhalt möchte ich nicht viel sagen, um unbeabsichtigte Spoiler zu vermeiden.
Kurz gesagt schafft ein Wissenschaftler die Anwendung der Quantenmechanik auf mikroskopische Objekte, hier einen Menschen. Die daraus resultierenden Folgen sind fatal, soviel sei gesagt.
Im Grunde handelt es sich um eine Liebesgeschichte eingebettet in einen wissenschaftlichen Rahmen mit teils philosophischen Ansätzen.

War nach Lesen der Beschreibung zunächst skeptisch, würde aber gänzlich überzeugt.
Klare Kaufempfehlung!

Auflösung etwas schwach

Die Grundidee des Buches ist toll, der Spannungsbogen auch - und doch bleibt am Ende ein "die Augen waren größer als der Magen"-Gefühl, weil das Ende nach dem was vorher über die Effekte berichtet wurde, nicht wirklich überzeugen kann.

Slow and "standard" start, then really really good

I really enjoyed this book, well thought in the end and very keen on closing possible loopholes that you come up with in your head. Great talent for describing sceneries

Schade

Interresantes Setting schön geschrieben aber unbefriedigend wenn es um die umschreibungen der Details der Fantasie geht.
