I am super excited to share my review with you today for The Passengers by John Marrs
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?
OMFG what an freaking awesome book this is. I just need a moment to lift my jaw up off the floor. I am totally blown away by how brilliant this story is. And a massive thank you goes to Sarah Hardy for the recommendation.
Hanging my head in shame I must admit that this is the first book that I have read/listened to by the author. Now I am left wondering where the hell I have been.
In this story we meet eight every different people who are trapped in a moving vehicle they have no control over and it is up to the public to decide who lives and who dies. My personal favourite was TV star Sophier she added plenty of humour to the story. I thought she was hilarious.
This story ticked all the boxes for me it is a pulse racing on the edge of your seat read. Even my son said to me…”is that all you have done all day, listen to that book” That book is the best audio I have ever listened too I replied!
It is told by six narrators so each character has a different voice. There is background noise which made this audio feel like I was watching a film.
Has the plot thickens we get to know the characters and there is plenty of OMG moments. I lost track of how many times I found myself saying OH MY GOD and NO WAY not to mention the swears words I used.
This story will tie you up in knots, it has more twists and turns than a curly wurly. I cannot recommend it enough. Anyone that loves a fast paced action packed thriller then this is the book for you.
