Book Review - Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
Another book about the multiverse theory...although this one is considerably darker than Maybe In Another Life. If you aren’t familiar with the multiverse theory, it states that whatever could possibly happen, does happen. So if you flip a coin and it lands heads, there is another universe where it landed tails. This happens with every decision that is made by every person in the world or every “flip of the coin” where circumstances change by chance, so there is an infinite number of universes.
So imagine what would happen if you could navigate between those universes. There would be another version of you in that universe, which you is really you? Dark Matter explores this question. It is about a man who is forced to switch places with another version of himself from an alternate universe and the journey to find his way back home. I really enjoyed comparing the two different takes on the multiverse theory in such close succession, although it was a complete accident. I did feel like there were some loose ends left untied that made the book seem a little incomplete and times where the science of it all made my brain spin. But overall a good read...plus it takes place in Chicago, so bonus points for that!
