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.… (mere)

    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

    rstaedter: A similar concept, but Crouch's approach is a different one.

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. ( )

We start with two time lines. We have Helena, the genius doctor's timeline in 2007 and we have Barry, the cop's timeline in 2018. The doctor is working on saving memories in her timeline. She is in a bit of a rush because her mom has Alzheimer's. In Barry's timeline some people are suffering from False Memory Syndrome. Gee, I wonder what went wrong...
------------------

At 80% I'm in my head screaming "when will this f'n story end?" I was so sick of it but wanted to finish it so I know the full story. How neatly will the author wrap it up?

We learn what went wrong, what was causing people to have false memories and the rest of the book is them trying to set it right. Groundhog Day style. So there is a lot of repeating and a lot of being dropped into a timeline practically in the middle of a sentence. I wonder if the physical book gave you a visual clue. The audiobook just chugged on.

Science Fiction - check.
Thriller - check (attempt to thwart the bad guy type thriller).
Suspense - zero. I felt no anticipation. No "I must sneak in reading to find out what happens next".

Overall a pretty cool story idea but the delivery was too slow, too repetitive, and if your going to make someone a genius doctor, she should behave/think that way. We were told she was a genius because of her invention but I wasn't convinced by hearing her talk to people or articulate her thoughts.

Earns an Annie "COCKADOODIE" for taking a bunch of Percocet and while waiting for death to overtake him remembers what he should of remembered a couple chapters ago and finally then sets things into motion for the victory lap. All before the Percocet hinders his abilities. *eye-roll*
------------------

2* seems harsh for a book I say is a "pretty cool story idea" but it was way too long and the existential discussion at the end was delivered at a time when I was so over it.

I first came across the author with Draculas and was properly amused and then my son and I had great fun watching the TV show Wayward Pines with the dreamy (LOL) Matt Dillon but two books and a novella later, I set the author free. ( )

A really good read on a long flight. If you enjoy time travel, you'll enjoy this.
In our time, False Memory Syndrome is a mysterious affliction where people remember entire new lives that never happened but whose memories are so vivid, they mess up people's minds to the point of suicide. Researchers can't find a medical cause or explanation. From there, it gets super weird and intriguing even if the ending was a tad disappointing. ( )

Barry Sutton, a NYPD cop fails to dissuade a jumper from a midtown building. Turns out she is suffering from False Memory Syndrome, where people claim to be plagued by memories of lives they never lived. As Barry starts investigating FMS cases, he gets sucked in, both professionally and personally. He eventually crosses paths with the brilliant neurologist, Helena Smith, whose efforts to preserve her mother from Alzheimer's disease, has led to a breakthrough in understanding memory. Helena is visited by a stranger who offers her millions of dollars in funding if she will come to an off-shore research facility (a converted oil rig) to continue her memory studies and technology development. She then meets patron, Marcus Slade, a billionaire visionary, who pushes her research testing in directions she never contemplated, threatening the future of humanity. Barry and Helena's lives will collide again and again, as their love and support for each other, keeps them fighting to save the world from the consequences of her invention.

Crouch stretches the concept of memory preservation into a technology that affects reality, with unforeseen and frightening ramifications, even providing readers with a somewhat plausible basis in quantum physics. While the book is intense and quite imaginative, it is annoyingly repetitive (to the point of actual boredom), making readers feel like hamsters stuck on a wheel with no escape. ( )
