Blog Tour Stop! The Passengers by John Marrs
Many thanks to Compulsive Reads Tours for inviting me to join along for this amazing ride!
If ever there is something better than a book that you can literally not set down, don’t tell me about it, I don’t want to know. To say I devoured this book would be a vast understatement - I inhaled this book, swallowed it whole, annihilated it in one sitting. Putting this one down was not an option for me. This book chewed me up and spit me out, and I am STILL reeling about it - the mystery, the twists, the surprises, the fact that I just did NOT KNOW WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. I’ve talked alot about how I love an unpredictable story, and this book is EXACTLY THAT. In fact, if you were to look up unpredictable in the dictionary, I think there is a picture of this book next to it.
Now here is the thing (and its a THING) - I cannot say anything else about this book, which makes it damn hard to review. But this is a book where diving in without expectation makes it so much better for the reader. If I had an inkling of what was to come, I think I would have been distracted and less invested in the plot. So I won’t ruin this for you, reader friends. Instead what I will say is that sometimes there are books that defy all logic and become wedged in your brain, and this book is going to worm it’s way into the depths of your consciousnesses for days after you turn the last page. I will say that John Marrs is an absolute rock star author and I can only hope that this book also becomes a series/movie in the very near future. I will say that books that truly surprise me and blow my DAMN MIND are few and far between and that if I am going to be adding this to every single recommendation list that I write for months to come. I will say that if this isn’t topping your summer TBR you are NUTS.
Get this book. Read this book. Prepare to be mesmerized by the most remarkable piece of work from John yet. And thank me for the suggestion later.
Eight self-drive cars set on a collision course. Who lives, who dies? You decide.
When someone hacks into the systems of eight self-drive cars, their passengers are set on a fatal collision course.
The passengers are: a TV star, a pregnant young woman, a disabled war hero, an abused wife fleeing her husband, an illegal immigrant, a husband and wife - and parents of two - who are travelling in separate vehicles and a suicidal man. Now the public have to judge who should survive but are the passengers all that they first seem?
