Recursion

By Blake Crouch
Recursion by Blake Crouch digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the bestselling author of Dark Matter and the Wayward Pines trilogy comes a relentless thriller about time, identity, and memory—his most mind-boggling, irresistible work to date, and the inspiration for Shondaland’s upcoming Netflix film.

“Gloriously twisting . . . a heady campfire tale of a novel.”—The New York Times Book Review

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Time • NPR • BookRiot

Reality is broken.
 
At first, it looks like a disease. An epidemic that spreads through no known means, driving its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived. But the force that’s sweeping the world is no pathogen. It’s just the first shock wave, unleashed by a stunning discovery—and what’s in jeopardy is not our minds but the very fabric of time itself.
 
In New York City, Detective Barry Sutton is closing in on the truth—and in a remote laboratory, neuroscientist Helena Smith is unaware that she alone holds the key to this mystery . . . and the tools for fighting back.
 
Together, Barry and Helena will have to confront their enemy—before they, and the world, are trapped in a loop of ever-growing chaos.

“Wow. Just wow. This book will stick with me for a while. I was engaged from the start, curious the entire way, thinking about the book and time itself when I wasn’t even reading it, sad as I got close to finishing, and emotional upon its ending. This book was unpredictable in both what happened and what it forced me to think about. It confronted me with what I thought I’d want to do with all my own regret, and how taking those paths would impact the lives of everyone else too. This is a beautiful story about life, grief, and love in the middle of a sci-fi, mind-bending thriller. The last half of this book especially is what I will keep with me forever. “That’s what it is to be human—the beauty *and* the pain, each meaningless without the other.””
