I enjoyed the first book by Black Crouch I’d read – Dark Matter. (2016)
Recursion is my second. Another weird and wild science fiction novel.
This time it’s a world where an increasing number of people are suffering False Memory Syndrome.
Some vividly recall their lives differently. Different spouse. Different kids.
It drives some to madness and suicide.
Turns out a scientist named Helena Smith has discovered a way to go back in time to correct mistakes they made in the past.
However — as in the Butterfly Effect — the timeline of humanity changes. Sometimes drastically.
But people can still recall their former live(s).
As a plot device it’s interesting. But makes no real sense.
I enjoyed it and plan to read more Crouch.
