Recursion
Recursion | Blake Crouch
A breath-taking exploration of memory and what it means to be human, Recursion is the follow-up novel to the smash-hit thriller, Dark Matter, by Blake Crouch. What if someone could rewrite your entire life? 'My son has been erased.' Those are the last words the woman tells Barry Sutton, before she leaps from the Manhattan rooftop. Deeply unnerved, Barry begins to investigate her death, only to learn that this wasnt an isolated case. All across the country, people are waking up to lives different than the ones they fell asleep to. Are they suffering from False Memory Syndrome, a mysterious, new disease that afflicts people with vivid memories of a life they never lived? Or is something far more sinister behind the fracturing of reality all around him? Miles away, neuroscientist Helena Smith is developing a technology that allows us to preserve our most intense memories, and relive them. 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. Barrys search for the truth leads him on an impossible, astonishing journey, as he discovers that Helenas work has yielded a terrifying gift the ability not just to preserve memories, but to remake them . . . at the risk of destroying what it means to be human.

Wasn‘t sure how this would measure up to Crouch‘s Dark Matter, but I think it did! Both books are mind-bending sci-fi thrillers which I struggle to wrap my head around, but that‘s what makes them so fun! Can‘t wait to see what Blake Crouch has up his sleeve for his next novel!

I love Blake Crouch and how he melds sci fi and philosophy. This book did not disappoint. Some of the scientific theory was definitely over my head but this is a very accessible tale of memory, reality, love, and loss. It reminded me of a Dean Koontz short story, Strange Highways, that I read years ago, as well as some other sci fi movies, but stands on its own as an original. It turns into a full on horror novel at a certain point, truly scary.

I have had no reading mojo for months, until this book happened. I really liked Dark Matter so I had high expectations. Recursion totally lived up! This book is a super fun ride and took me where I didn't expect it to go. Not to mention along the way I got reacquainted with my Kindle. Now I have so many books I want to read, I'm having trouble choosing! This one gets a rare 5⭐.

Having read, & loved, Dark Matter as well a couple other Crouch titles I didn't read the plot synopsis when I picked this as my June BOTM selection. I only knew it involved False Memory Syndrome & I went down a rabbit hole after seeing a post that mentioned Mandela Effect. This is by far Crouch's most ambitious book to date, & if there's one book that I've read recently that cries out for an adaptation it's this one.

lele1432 Yesss!! 👏🏽👏🏽 I have GOT to see this on film! It would be an epic doomsday blockbuster! 2w
vivastory @lele1432 Right?! I'd honestly be shocked if we never get an adaptation, because it was such a unique, well-executed concept! 2w

Wow, I think I liked this even more than Dark Matter! The 1st half was a little bogged down by the science of what created FMS, but around pg 200 the action & suspense ratchets up & this mind-bender ultimately shows how humans can take a good thing & use it for cataclysmic disaster. Face-meltingly scary stuff. How willing are we to accept pain in life with the good? Are we really living if we have "cheat codes"? This needs to be a film! 4⭐️s!??

lele1432 I will say I had to switch from the audio to print. The male narrator, who also did Dark Matter, was good, but the added female narrator was almost robotic and really took away from Helena's POV. I flew through the pages once I switched. 1mo

While I didn't find the romantic relationship nearly as believable in this book compared to Jason and Daniela Dessen in Dark Matter, their relationship kinda grew on me, and a few quotes pulled at my heartstrings, particularly this one.

“I‘ll be in that Portland bar in October of 1990, waiting for you.”

“You won‘t even recognize me.”

“My soul knows your soul. In any time.” 😭 #BOTM

I‘m not a huge sci-fi fan, but there‘s a sliver of it I just love and Blake Crouch is right in that sweet spot. His latest book, about the nature of time and memory, is a tantalizing, fascinating, mindfuck of a book and a total page turner. I loved it.

September was a good book month for me. I had been in a book slump and I think I broke the curse. Most of these were completed in the first 3 weeks too since I've not been focusing very well since Tuesday. That was the day we learned that our sweet fur baby was miserably suffering from cancer and lost him quite suddenly. I'm still reeling a bit and looking for good escapes for the coming month. I'm not a spooktober-y type, but I love fall. Ideas?

Meh. The characters were bland and their romance was even less interesting. This reads more like a Hollywood thriller—all action, less concern with a solid plot. Thank goodness it was a fairly quick read or else I wouldn‘t have made it to the end.

Probably not a popular opinion, but I struggled with this one. It‘s very readable and engaging. Fast-paced and fun. But, the character development is lacking. I also had some issues with the whole time travel aspect. I can‘t help thinking about all the ways the plot doesn‘t work. I enjoyed the beginning and end the most. The middle was chaotic, repetitive, and underdeveloped. But, from an entertainment perspective, I get why people like it.

Would you go back in time to change something if you could? Blake Crouch explores that very topic in this fast-paced, mindbending, time traveling tale of two people fighting to save the world, and themselves.

If you are a fan of his other book, Dark Matter, you'll enjoy this one too. I'll admit, there are parts of this book where I'm still thinking, "WTH did I just read," but that's kinda why I liked it so much too. ?

Long story short, in this book DARPA has a way to go back and undo bad things that happened in the recent past. Many of those things end up being mass shootings.

Library haul. Top 2 are book club reads - nothing I would have chosen. Red Rising is a book I‘d never heard of but read a lot of rave reviews on recently so want to try it. Recursion I‘m so excited for since I really like Blake Crouch. The bottom two are my suspense/horror picks as we near fall and the season of a scary book! The Hunger in particular intrigues me since the Donner party has always spooked me since it was discussed in The Shining.

RECURSION is a mind bending trip that deals with heavy subjects as neuroscience, time, philosophy, physics and nature of our memory. The story follows a scientist Helena Smith as she tries to find a way for alzheimer patients to retain their memory and an NYPD dectective Barry Sutton as he tries to cope with a tragedy. This is a fantastic sciece fiction thriller which deals with the fragile elements of time, identity and memory. Not to be missed.

Last month when I did the Book Snob Book Tag on BookTube, I started thinking about other things that I am definitely very particular about when it comes to books. As it turns out, I am a bigger book snob than I initially realized! Check out my latest video video and let me know if any of these things bother you, too! https://youtu.be/wMp_dYyTtTQ #booktube #youtube #bookvlog #booksnob #dustjackets #moviecovets #massmarketpaperbacks #librarybooks

EadieB @Butterflyamore Sorry to see that Elliot passed away! He was so cute! In regards to DustJackets, I love them too. I bought a book that didn't have a jacket and made my own by taking a picture of the cover from the Amazon app and printed it out on paper and taped the papers together. I'm not at home or I would show you the cover that I made. I take the jacket off when I read the book but I would never throw it away. I put it back on after reading. 2mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I also like to remove the plastic covers from library books I own. I hate when they put the barcode on the back of the cover and cover up some of the wording from other's reviews or the description of the book. I hate to get a book where people have bent the edges of pages to mark their spot. I also am a book repairer. I'm forever putting tapes on the backside of older books whose jacket is ripping. Tape bindings that are apart too (edited) 2mo
See All 9 Comments
EadieB @Butterflyamore I like reading hardcover but sometimes find the trade of mass market a lot easier to travel with. I don't like descriptive sex or bad language in books. I love beautiful poetic writing too where I will read every word. But other styles don't bother me either. Never heard of putting bar codes on the front. Sales stickers on the front are annoying too. I always peel them off. I don't keep books after I read them so I'm not too fussy. 2mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB Thank you. It‘s been very difficult emotionally. We did not expect this to happen. Creating a cover for one without a dust jacket is a really good idea! I might have to do that for the one I mentioned. 2mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB Yes, I don‘t like those sale stickers either. I‘m usually okay with profanity, as long as it isn‘t ridiculously out of control, but I‘m not a fan of descriptive sex scenes either. 2mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore Making the cover was a lot of fun. I'll have to find the book or I may have sent it on to one of my book swapping sites and I probably explained the cover to the person I sent it too. But I may still have it. 2mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore The profanity that I dislike is when they use the F word throughout constantly when it is not necessary. That really bugs me. I think I mentioned the book YOU by Carolyn Kepnes. Found that really bad for descriptive sex and language. 2mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB Yeah, I thought I had wanted to read that but not now, based on what you‘ve shared. I do feel using the F word repeatedly really takes away from the value of the story. The sex stuff - I don‘t know - it‘s just so awkward to read for me. I really am not interested in the sex lives of other people. 2mo

Between “Recursion” and “Dark Matter” I have quickly become someone who will read anything Blake Crouch writes, no questions asked. Whenever I thought I knew where “Recursion” was going, I was wrong. It‘s a puzzle-box time travel story, based on memory, death, and love. This book was a blast, compulsively readable and brimming with unexpected heart.
