The Passengers by John Marrs



OMG this book is absolutely brilliant! How have I not read a John Marrs book before this? Where has this author been all my life?!  Seriously this book had me at the edge of my seat the entire wild ride.

I have been eagerly awaiting to get my hands on a copy of this book! The book came out earlier in the year for my fellow bloggers across the pond and after reading each fantastic review one after another, I knew this was going to be one heck of a book. It is finally due to come out here in the U.S. on August 27, 2019 and I was lucky enough to get an early copy.

Self driving cars...you either love the idea or you hate it. I personally hate the idea of it because it terrifies me that we are going to put that much faith in technology. If you love the idea, well just read this book. Perhaps the most disturbing thing I found about this book is the fact that, well it really could happen. I am astounded at the great details of this book and how realistic it all felt. Hackers can do anything these days and I found this whole situation just very capable of happening in the future.

All eight people held captive in their cars had a story to tell. I found myself captivated by each one for different reasons. I was left with my mouth hanging open as the author managed to shock me over and over again as each person's story unraveled before my eyes.

Suspenseful, thought provoking and one hell of a ride (literally). If you want a book that you just can't put down, well pick up this one! I loved every minute of it. I read this one with my book group the Traveling Sisters and it was quite the hit.

Thank you so much to Berkley for my advance copy! Thank you to John Marrs for this fantastic book. I can't wait to read the rest of your books!
