    I?m not a fan of sci-fi, but I loved Dark Matter and am fascinated by issues involving memory. So this one was a no brainer to read. In 2007, Neuroscientist Helena Smith is devoting her life to creating a technology to preserve our memories. Meanwhile, folks in 2018 are suffering fro...

    I have no problems in announcing that this book ought to be a multi-multi-billion-dollar bestseller. Maybe I'm biased, too, but damn, this guy can write a great novel that tickles all my SF bones and reminds me how much I love well-crafted thrillers. Does this remind you of his Dar...

    3 Stars. What can I say about Blake Crouch?s new book Recursion? Well, it?s got ?a Whole Lotta Crazy Going On!? Can you say, do-over? Are your memories to be trusted? What happens if your memories are replaced with new ones and you keep re-living your life over and over? ...

    But what do you cling to, moment to moment, if memories can simply change. What, then, is real? Imagine you woke up one morning and discovered that your entire life - your job, your kids, your friends, all your experiences - wasn't real. It still feels real. You remember it vividly....

    "He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past." - George Orwell, 1984 This was a book I had to sit and think about before writing my review, mainly because I had to let it sink it. What would it be like to live your life over again? W...

    3.5 stars. This was some crazy s--t. "What's more precious than our memories? They define us and form our identities." Blake Crouch's new book, Recursion , is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Crouch's Dark Matter , which was one of the top five books I re...

    4.5 stars, rounding up. On sale now! Review first posted on Fantasy Literature: A sort of memory chair ... Recursion begins with a dual timeline in alternating chapters, a familiar literary approach, but then splinters into razor-sharp time shards as the characters deal with t...

    Memories stay.......People don't. Detective Barry Sutton, Central Robbery Division of the NYPD, races to the 41st floor of the Poe Building known for its Art Deco motif and certainly not for what is about to happen. A lone woman is perched on the edge in more ways than one. She look...

    Creative. Though-provoking. Emotionally-charged. Memorable. Whether you?re a reader that frequents the sci-fi genre, or one that only occasionally takes a risk when it comes to the suspension of disbelief (hello, that?s me!), recognizing and appreciating the level of creativity ...

    the thing i admire about blake crouch is how he can take a story centred in one particular genre, but make it accessible and enjoyable to everyone. this book is everything that is right in the sci-fi world and is proof that sci-fi can be written exceptionally well and appeal to the mas...

    If Black Mirror served as a surrogate for Groundhog's Day and Back to the Future, Recursion would be that test tube baby. This one starts out with a bang, or more like a plunk, as the story opens with a woman jumping from a building to her death, but not before she utters the words ...

    Blake Crouch has done it again!!! Recursion was fascinating, confusing and brilliant! Dark Matter is one of my favorite sci-fi books of all time so I was almost scared to delve into Recursion - nervous it wouldn't live up to my expectations for Crouch. This book was ambitious. Thank...

    My thanks to Crown Publishing, Blake Crouch and Netgalley. Once again I received a gratis copy, all for the price of a measly review! What's funny is that I truly hate reviewing books, but for some author's, I'll go through it! Or as I call it hell and high water! First of all I have ...

    Blake Crouch's latest science fiction thriller is a complex mind messing of a thought provoking read. It is intense, time shifting and asks profound questions of identity, memory, and what it is that makes us human. Just be prepared to find yourself buffeted all over the place. I under...
