Grumpy Book Grrrl

a reader and writer

Release date: June 11, 2019. Publisher: Crown Publishing.

I have been a huge fan of Blake Crouch’s for years and was honored to receive this ARC from Netgalley and Crown. I was fairly certain I would like this book, but I had no idea just *how* much. I LOVE stories like this.

In the words of David Tennant playing The Doctor on Doctor Who:

“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.”

It’s timey-wimey, people. This book had me thinking all the deep thoughts and that is what I live for!

The story is told from the POVs of Harry, a NYPD detective, and Helena, a scientist. Helena creates a machine she hopes will help Alzheimer patients. A wealthy sponsor ends up taking her invention a whole other way.

It’s split into four “books.” At the beginning of each are awesome quotes like this one:

“We are homesick for the places we have never known.” – Carson McCullers

I won’t say too much because spoilers, obviously. But I highly recommend this one! I really loved the “weirdness” of Wayward Pines, but this may be my new favorite Crouch book.

Thank you Netgalley and publisher for providing an eARC to read and review.
