Book Review – The Passengers by John Marrs @johnmarrs1 #BookReview #BookBlogger #thriller

If there ever was a book I would be asked to pick in the thriller category which would cause my fingers to tremble with excitement, my breaths to stop, and my heart to race to save the passengers, it would be this book.

8 passengers in a driverless cars driven by AI, suddenly get hacked, and the car was on a collision course. All 8 were to die until the Hacker gave the people on the jury a choice to save one of them. Each passenger got a chance to present their life story. But were they honest? What would happen to them?

My first book by author John Marrs, this book exemplified everything I believed about the written word. Words have power, they could take me from the humdrum of life right on to the roads of London where the life of each passenger hung by a thread. The story was larger than life in its concept, fantastical even, but the delivery was a pure, highly concentrated adrenaline rush.

This book was the perfect proof of why I read to live. A book written in simple terms with a rising suspense and using hash tag trends of today, it was obvious the author was a master storyteller. I had no idea who the Hacker in the story controlled, but it was John Marrs who controlled me via the story.

Suspense and twists were the book’s cornerstones along with the dynamic flourish that this story was written. The book was a thrill-a-second, jaw-dropping dynamo which caused my pulse to rise with every page. A brilliant read!!

I heard parts of the book via storytel and read the others via the ebook, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

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?
