For Meredith Gale, ending her life seems like her only choice, and that choice is the reason she’s dangling by her fingertips from a bridge high above the freezing water of the San Francisco Bay. But someone or some thing has other plans for Meredith, and as her fingers slip from the cold steel of the bridge, a disembodied voice asks her a simple question: “Candidate 13: Do you wish to be saved?” Realizing her mistake too late, Meredith screams “Yes!” and instantly finds herself transported to a mysterious island, alongside hundreds of other Candidates like her.

I couldn't seem to visualise the characters as the descriptions were somewhat lacking. One dimensional characters in my opinion. Story started good but didn't reach a satisfactory conclusion. I hope the second book offers far more descriptive characterisation and maybe a plot twist and reaches some important high points along the way The premise of this book is good however it underwhelmed me.

Listened to this about 25 years ago on cassette tape and was so good I had to listen again. One of the best plot twists ever!

'Are you happy in your life?' Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. Before he wakes to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits. Before the man he's never met smiles down at him and says, 'Welcome back, my friend.' In this world he's woken up to, Jason's life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.

Overall a decent sci-fi book albeit I didn't get the final multiple events (don't wish to spoil). It certainly has similarities to Counterpart on Starz which I love but not to be confused with Dark Matter on US TV.
