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 wasn't 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.Barry's search for the truth leads him on an impossible, astonishing journey, as he discovers that Helena's 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.… (mais)

Detalhes da Obra

Recursion de Blake Crouch (Author)

  1. 00
    Here and Now and Then de Mike Chen (Jayeless)
    Jayeless: Both are time travel thrillers packing a hefty emotional punch, with Kin and Barry being similar characters, and their family lives being important to the story. Humanistic sci-fi FTW
  2. 00
    Life After Life de Kate Atkinson (rstaedter)
    rstaedter: A similar concept, but Crouch's approach is a different one.

What if you were not limited to this version of reality?
That is the big question that Blake Crouch asks in his new book Recursion? Helena Smith has developed a process that allows the user to revisit any memory, step into the reality of that time, and change it. Crouch shows us the various consequences of such a device, on a personal, governmental, and worldwide level. ( )

Received via NetGalley for review.

I've never read Blake Crouch before, but have heard good things about him, and was eager to read his newest effort. And I'm probably going to go out and see what else he's written!

Crouch does an excellent job with characterization and setting, relentlessly driving the plot forward but not allowing the reader to get lost in the details. I don't really care HOW Helena's chair transports people back in time, and neither does Crouch, not really (though it IS a very interesting take that time is such an illusion that we force ourselves to view it in a linear, rigid manner). What matters is that it does.

Some VERY small things that in no way detract from the readability of the book or the enjoyment of it's plot: Helena is VERY against the use of her chair for any purpose, but still allows Shaw to attempt to do good. It's understandable that she'd be wary of it's potential, but she bends to Shaw too easily. That, instead, could be a great motivating factor for how extreme her views get.
There's no explanation of why Slade chose to send Barry back in time - was he just a random choice? Was he getting too close so Slade distracted him?
The idea that coming back from a timeline where you have died should have been explored more thoroughly. It's already a long book, I understand, but it doesn't read long and this seems important. Their first test subject and Meghan killed themselves because they saw death, and wanted to return to whatever perfect moment they saw, and Crouch seems to be setting this up as an insurmountable obstacle... and then there's no other mention of it. Where were the rash of suicides after Shaw stopped the school shooting? Why weren't people (and especially Helena) bringing this up as an unavoidably lethal side effect? Ben and Timoney (the two soldier with DARPA) were said to suffer the mental effects of repeatedly dying, but Helena doesn't discuss these effects or seem to suffer any herself.


The book moves quickly to the meat of the action (False Memory Syndrome is actually a bit of a red herring...) and doesn't let up. The questions Crouch raises about time and memory and being are thrilling and important, and Barry and Helena's romance is tragic and beautiful: they are truly soul mates. ( )

The last 100 pages were dreadfully long, it could have ended earlier.
2.5 stars to be exact. Not as strong as Dark Matter or maybe it's because this is the third book in a row that I read which explores such mindfkery. ( )

I didn't expect to like this book anywhere near as much as I did.

I'd just given up on the abysmal [b:The Lost Boys Symphony|22314031|The Lost Boys Symphony|Mark Andrew Ferguson|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1405865113l/22314031._SX50_.jpg|41706557], in which a weird sort of time travel was involved, and jumped right into this book, where a weird sort of time travel is involved.

I will say, for the first third, to half of the book, I was having a hell of a lot of trouble wrapping my head around the central MacGuffin of that weird sort of time travel (okay, it's not really time travel...but it sort of is). I'd sussed out what the main bad guy of the piece had done to become who he was.

So, for the first half, while it was enjoyable, was nothing special, and somewhat predictable.

Then the second half came, looked at my expectations, and laughed.

The second half of this novel is just...mindbendingly fantastic in the best sort of way.

I'd read Crouch's Wayward Pines trilogy, and felt it got sillier and sillier along the way, with diminishing returns. This book? This is the absolute opposite of that. ( )

"a deeply unsettling existential horror story, a nightmare you’ll never be sure you’ve woken up from." this has been said about PKD's Ubik but i feel it could just as easily be applied to Recursion. Crouch is some kind of Crichton-Nolan Hybrid. ( )
