What I’m Reading: Recursion

Cover art for Recursion by Blake Crouch

The novel kicks off with an investigation into “False Memory Syndrome”, in which people suddenly find they have memories of another life. Confronted with these echoes of a parallel life, people become unhinged … or worse. I don’t want to give away the plot, but suffice it to say, things get weirder from there.

Recursion is a compelling page-turner, though the consequences of False Memory Syndrome in the book hit a little too close to home given the current challenges the world is facing with COVID-19. It’s worth reading … but I recommend saving it for another day.
