What I learned from reading “Dark Matter” by Blake Crouch

… it’s the beautiful thing about youth.there’s a weightlessness that permeates everything because no damning choices have been made, no paths committed to ,and the road forking out ahead is pure,unlimited potential …

– from Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

This was really enjoyable. The basic premise is genuinely enthralling and I spent much time musing on the concept of the multi-verse during and since reading this. The pace of the story accelerates throughout and even unexpected turns do not derail the building momentum. It’s a good story and well told although I felt the finale was rather rushed and for me slightly unsatisfactory. The real value of the book for me was the questions it got me asking about the road not taken and the reality of the choices we have made.
