28.05.2020. Our second Virtual Book Club gathering had members joined in by Zoom. I found it an interesting and different read and was curious to see what others thought of it.

‘Are you happy in your life?’ Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. Before he wakes to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits.

While not everyone liked the book – it gave ample opportunity for discussion.

Not having a lot of scientific knowledge appeared to be helpful for not noticing factual discrepancies! It was also easy to see how the story could be made into an action film…in fact maybe it would have been better as an action film.

    Glad to see people discussing this book. I read it recently and put together this explainer that goes over the science, the premise of the book and the plot.


    I’m hoping that helps readers. Please review if possible and link to it if you find it useful.
