Top 10 Books of 2021 For Me
5 out of 5 stars
When I saw that Brian Freeman had another book out I had to check it out. The first book I read from him was Thief River Falls and it knocked my socks off (that’s literally what I titled my review). What’s amazing is that this one did it even more but for different reasons. I hate saying that a book is going to be in my top 10 books of the year as early as March – but good god was this book great.
Just like with Thief River Falls, Infinite is one of those books that I can’t talk a lot about what actually happened in it without spoiling it. It was full of twists and turns and I want to compare it to something but if I do to a popular movie but that would do two things – it would take away from the “feeling” of this book but it would make you think about things in another way throughout.
Infinite was one of those books that I couldn’t walk away from. Freeman wrote a character that wasn’t even that likeable but as things progress you learn that he’s flawed but you learn how much because you’re able to see things worse and better. I can’t imagine how anyone could live in a world like that. I read another book recently that had a similar “how do you live with yourself” premise, The Mirror Man, but just that part – these books had nothing else in common.
I feel hyperbolic because of how much I enjoyed it but Infinite really had a hold of me and made me think about a lot of stuff. It also had me going until the very end. I had maybe 10 endings guessed and I’m not even sure I was right about any of them.
If you like books that absolutely mess with your head and have you questioning everything, then you’ll definitely enjoy this one.
From bestselling author Brian Freeman comes an explosive new psychological thriller that pushes the limits of reality as we know it.
One rainy night, the unthinkable happens: Dylan Moran’s car plunges off the road into a raging river, his beautiful wife drowning as he struggles to shore.
In the aftermath, through his grief, Dylan experiences sudden, strange visions: wherever he goes, he’s haunted by glimpses of himself. Dylan initially chalks it up to trauma, but that changes when he runs into a psychiatrist who claims he’s her patient. She says he has been undergoing a unique hypnotherapy treatment built on the idea that with every choice, he creates an infinite number of parallel universes.
Now those parallel universes are unlocked–and Dylan’s doppelgänger has staked a claim to his world. Can Dylan use these alternate realities to get a second chance at the life that was stolen from him? Or will he lose himself…to himself?
