BLOG TOUR ~ The Passengers by John Marrs

Hi Everyone,

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for The Passengers by John Marr where I have a review of John's latest novel. I was thrilled to be asked by Tracy Fenton of Compulsive Readers who organised this tour in conjunction with Penguin Random House and Ebury Publishing to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else is taking part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of this review so without further ado, here it is:

Eight self-drive cars set on a collision course. Who lives, who dies? You decide.

Driverless cars are safe, aren't they?? Driverless cars are unhackable, aren't they?? WRONG!! 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?

Well, where do I start with this apart from saying I absolutely LOVED it. I don't want to say too much about the plot or expand on it above as I'll be afraid that I'll give something away. But I will say having loved the One by John Marrs, I was delighted to be able to read this latest one. I read it at break neck speed, I couldn't put it down. It was full of twists and turns which will keep your attention and you guessing right until the end. There is the storyline from The One in this book too but this book is a standalone and can be read that way too. I'm sure this book will stick in all our minds because of the storyline as I'm sure we've all read and heard about some incidents about driverless cars and after reading this book I definitely won't be getting a driverless car anytime soon but i would LOVE to see this been made into a film or tv series.

The Passengers is available from all good bookshops from May 16th, libraries, on audio and available on kindle where it is currently £0.99 at the time of publication of this review.

The best thriller I've read so far this year. Go and get a copy, you won't be disappointed. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
