I know I just posted my Top Ten Most Anticipated Reads for January to June, but I have to share one more that somehow missed my radar! I’m a BIG fan of Dark Matter by Blake Crouch and am SO excited he has a new one coming out in 2019.
Recursion by Blake Crouch releases June 11, 2019 and We. Can’t. Wait!
About the Book:
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 from 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 reexperience 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 remakejust to preserve memories but to remake them … at the risk of destroying what it means to be human. At once a relentless thriller and an intricate science fiction puzzle box, Recursion is a deeply felt exploration of the flashbulb moments that define us–and who we are without them.
