Dark Matter is a science fiction thriller novel by American writer Blake Crouch, first published in the United States in July 2016 by the Crown Publishing Group. The story is about a physicist who is kidnapped and sent to a parallel universe in which another version of his life unfolds because of a different choice he made fifteen years previously. The book draws on the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics which posits that every possible outcome of every event creates a new universe or world that runs parallel to our own.Dark Matter received mixed reviews from critics, and was nominated for the 2016 World Technology Awards. The book was translated into Dutch by Corry van Bree as Dark Matter and published by Karakter in August 2016. It was also translated into German by Klaus Berr as Dark Matter: Der Zeitenläufer and published by Goldmann in March 2017.

Review of 'Dark Matter' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

Il paradosso del gatto di Schrödinger è appunto un paradosso: la meccanica quantistica non si può applicare a oggetti macroscopici, complessi e vivi.
Ok al multiverso per protoni elettroni a quanti vari ma per quanto riguarda gli esseri umani il semplice parlarne ti fa "precipitare" in un film Marvel popolato di Dr. Strange.

Fatta questa premessa secondo me l'autore è molto bravo nello sviscerare aspetti e conseguenze che nei fumetti e nei film dei supererori non vengono ovviamente presi in considerazione: la trama risulta avvincente ed i personaggi sono ben contestualizzati nelle diverse "scatole" che si alternano. Un po' deluso per il finale che, pur calandosi nella realtà del multiverso, risulta comunque poco sensato per i protagonisti.
