The Passengers by John Marrs @johnmarrs1 @penguinrandom @Tr4cyF3nt0n

Book Description:

Eight self-drive cars set on a collision course. Who lives, who dies? You decide.

The new gripping page-turning thriller from the bestselling author of THE ONE – soon to be a major Netflix series.

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?

My Thoughts:

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! Sometimes a book comes along and literally blows your socks off and The Passengers is one of them. My heart is still pounding just thinking about this brilliantly twisted novel.

This is one author whose books just go from strength to strength. Each one gets more gripping and shocking. What I love is how in a couple of his books now, he centres the story around something futuristic that really could happen. It is seriously scary stuff.

There are so many twists and turns in this book that I didn’t see coming. A couple were definitely jaw dropping moments. What does make for sombre reading though is how judgemental as a nation we are. Its really hard to say too much about this story without giving spoilers away but it has definitely made me more aware to get all the facts before jumping to a decision.

The Passengers is just a brilliant story and concept. I absolutely loved it. It really is an edge of your seat read that will have you clinging on for dear life. One particular part made my heart stop with the mounting tension. It seriously messed with my mind and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. An absolute must read for 2019.

My thanks to Tracy Fenton, NetGalley and Penguin Random House UK, Ebury Publishing for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

The Passengers is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).

  1. Great review Sarah. I have just recently heard of John Marrs and I think I will definitely add this one to my TBR. Five Wows for a twisty book, how can I resist.
