John Marrs – The Passengers: Review

Short Spoiler Free Review

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?”

Big thank you to Ebury and PenguinUK for sending me this book to review.

Star Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was amazing! The whole concept intrigued me right away, I mean, self-drive cars? SO INTERESTING! Especially since they are trialing them in the UK! Super intriguing.

The Passengers is set a few years in the future and starts out introducing us to Libby, the main character who most people can relate to. Libby is an average girl who opposes self-drive cars. The book continues to tell us about self-drive cars and how they operate as well as their different levels.

When the hacker takes over and we are introduced to the eight passengers, things get very interesting. John Marrs was very clever about how he wrote this book and it switches between each of the passengers and Libby.

This book doesn’t give you the opportunity to wonder what is going to happen because once you are told something, you read something else and your opinion changes completely!

Very cleverly written and some amazing twists throughout the book. A very enjoyable read and I would high recommend! 🚗
