Memory makes reality.
 
That’s what NYC cop Barry Sutton is learning, as he investigates the devastating phenomenon the media has dubbed False Memory Syndrome—a mysterious affliction that drives its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived.
 
That’s what neuroscientist Helena Smith believes. It’s why she’s dedicated her life to creating a technology that will let us preserve our most precious memories. If she succeeds, anyone will be able to re-experience a first kiss, the birth of a child, the final moment with a dying parent.
 
As Barry searches for the truth, he comes face to face with an opponent more terrifying than any disease—a force that attacks not just our minds, but the very fabric of the past. And as its effects begin to unmake the world as we know it, only he and Helena, working together, will stand a chance at defeating it.
 
But how can they make a stand when reality itself is shifting and crumbling all around them?
 
At once a relentless pageturner and an intricate science-fiction puzzlebox about time, identity, and memory, Recursion is a thriller as only Blake Crouch could imagine it—and his most ambitious, mind-boggling, irresistible work to date.

3.0 Book Takes Too Long To Get to the Point
So at this point I cannot give this one more than three stars. The main reason is that I disliked a good 50 percent of this book. I kept going with it hoping it would pay off, but it took too long to get there. I think dividing up the POVs is what made it confusing. I get why Crouch did it (to make ...

2.5 Recursion by Blake Crouch
Holy Hell in a time traveling handbasket. This book was all sorts of deep and messy. I feel that I must give fair warning though: this review will most likely have me swimming upstream against the tide of glowing reviews, salmon style... without the spawning of course.... mainly due to the fact that...

3.0 Recursion
[I received a copy of this book through NetGalley and Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.]This novel definitely dealt with an interesting idea, one that raised a lot of ethical conundrums—and not only when it comes to mapping and injecting memories. It’s hard to fully develop this without s...

4.0 Recursion by Blake Crouch
Wow, this was one crazy and very cool ride! It was like a Black Mirror, Fringe, and Twilight Zone episode all wrapped up and made into a movie. There are already enough reviews of this book to look through that I am not going to re-hash what the synopsis is about except to say it has to do with memo...

0.0 "Recursion" by Blake Crouch - Abandoned at 10%
"Recursion" was a mis-buy on my part. An intriguing premise but written in a way I struggled to engage with- I pre-ordered Blake Crouch's "Recursion" because I thought the premise, the emergence of a disease labelled False Memory Syndrome was intriguing. I also wanted to give Blake Crouch another ...
