My Ratings: 5/5 stars
About this book:
“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.
I had read rave reviews about this book and people have been recommending it to me for so long but I didn’t want the hype to keep me from enjoying this book and that is why I put it off for so long and now that I finally caught up to it, I am glad I waited.
Because it was now that I could fully enjoy this book.
What an incredible sci-fi!
It’s all about choices and how the choices we make, make us. We choose things and it takes out life in a different direction. Howmany times have we all thought what our life would be like if we had chosen something different.
The protagonist actually gets to find out. From there it’s a journey of self-discovery, deciding what he wants and the way to get there. There are so many emotional dilemmas and the author just finds a way to make them work.
I got so emotionally connected with the characters along with being impressed with the concept that reading this book became so entertaining. I finished this book in one sitting and would probably recommend it to anyone even mildly interested in sci-fi amd alternate dimensions.
