Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

I'm someone who always thought that I wouldn't like science fiction; however, I decided to give this science fiction thriller a try because I had read so many positive reviews.  I could not put Dark Matter down.  

What if the world that you thought you knew disappeared?

Jason Dessen leaves his house one evening, gets kidnapped, and wakes up in a world that is not the world he knows. He is greeted by strangers who seem to know him. His wife is not his wife. His son has not been born. His strong love for his wife and child cause him to race through different alternate realities trying to find the world he left. It becomes very dangerous very quickly because Jason discovers that he is not the only person who wants to live his life.
