5 what did I just read stars!
I was so afraid that this book would not live up to the hype currently circulating around it. Holy cow it was so good! I’m not even sure of what I just read… except it grabbed me and pulled me in from the beginning. How am I to explain this book without giving anything away…
Okay so Jason is happy in his ordinary life, until the moment comes when he is hit over the head by a masked man and wakes up somewhere he recognizes no one but everyone knows who he is. Intrigued yet? You will be… Jason is a college professor with a normal life, he has a wife and a son. Everything seems hunky dory. Until he wakes up in this strange place and everyone is asking where he has been what he has seen.
Blake Crouch did such a wonderful job telling this story without it seeming repetitive. I think it had something to do with his writing style. The chapters were relatively short and the paragraphs weren’t long. He had a way of telling you everything you needed to know without dragging it out. It was like short bursts of information that had your heart pumping when Jason’s was and contemplating a lot about life. If this book doesn’t have you thinking about life when you finish it, then I think you read it wrong. The thought that one different choice could’ve lead you somewhere else is such a big thing. I might not have my house, my car, or family.
This is one of those books you can’t pinpoint when you fall into the void of never putting the book down. I loved the book completely, it was something I needed to read that I didn’t know I wanted to read.
