Recursion by Blake Crouch

July 1, 2019

Memory makes reality. 

That’s what New York City 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.

Neuroscientist Helena Smith already understands the power of memory. It’s why she’s dedicated her life to creating a technology that will let us preserve our most precious moments of our pasts. 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?

This is one of those books that isn't just a sci-fi thriller, but it's such a realistic thriller that is eerily scary. As I read this book, I had this sense of dread that I couldn't seem to escape. The technology in this book is not so far out of the realm. 

 

Have you ever wondered why you have a sense of dejavu on occasion? Have you ever wondered if your life is just one big dream and that your dreams are really your real life? This book had me thinking about things that sometimes run through my head but on a bigger scale. I was so wrapped up in this book and the possibilities, that I had goose bumps.

 

I am still reeling from this book. I was so into this story, I wasn't sure I wanted it to end. I can't seem to stop thinking about it. It's one of those books that will really make you ponder life and how far people will actually go to achieve their goals.

 

This book is most certainly a must read, no matter your reading preferences. When I say sci-fi, it's not what I picture as necessarily being sci-fi. I would say it's a tech thriller. One that will leave you skeptical of what you think you know and your mind blown.
