The Passengers by John Marrs @johnmarrs1 @berkleypub #bookreview #thepassengers

Happy Monday all!

This book is coming out in the US tomorrow and it completely blew my mind! This was my first John Marrs but definitely will not be my last!

My Thoughts

This is my brain🧠. This is my brain after reading this book🤯. Any questions?

John Marrs completely blew my mind with this exhilarating thriller! Eight passengers in eight separate driverless cars, all of them with secrets, none of them making it to their desired destination. Imagine you’re in a driverless car you have no control, no brakes, no steering wheel, you can’t even open the doors,and somebody has taken over the car. In 2 1/2 hours all eight of these cars will collide head on end it is up to a “jury” and the public to decide who will survive. Or imagine this you are trapped in a room on a jury of sorts and your job is to decide the fate of these eight strangers. Yikes! I don’t know which situation I’d want to be in less.

This was a fast-paced wild ride full of twists, turns, and plenty of bumps in the road. I was right there with these characters in these cars, I could feel their panic and fear. I was also right there in that room trying to determine the fate of these characters. I can’t even imagine determining whether someone should live or die? Part of the brilliance of this story was how the lives of these characters were revealed to us. It was so real and disturbing how my opinion was altered as each piece of information was shared. I was so invested in the story, I seriously could not put it down! And then that end! WHAT! BRAVO John Marrs! This is an absolute can’t miss!

About the Book

You’re riding in your self-driving car when suddenly the doors lock, the route changes and you have lost all control. Then, a mysterious voice tells you, “You are going to die.” 
Just as self-driving cars become the trusted, safer norm, eight people find themselves in this terrifying situation, including a faded TV star, a pregnant young woman, an abused wife fleeing her husband, an illegal immigrant, a husband and wife, and a suicidal man. 
From cameras hidden in their cars, their panic is broadcast to millions of people around the world. But the public will show their true colors when they are asked, “Which of these people should we save? …And who should we kill first?”
