Read & download Í Recursion 102 Ing than any disease a force that attacks not just our minds but the very fabric of the past And as its effects begin to unmake the world as we know it only he and Helena working together will stand a chance at defeating itBut how can they make a stand when reality itself is shifting and crumbling all around the Recursion has become the first sci fi standalone to be included in my favorite shelvesAs many readers probably did my first experience with reading Crouch s work was for Dark Matter I was super impressed by it and after hearing that the author has a new sci fi thriller that s highly recommended for readers who loved Dark Matter gave me so much joy it would be insane for me to not take a look at Recursion Do note that taking a look at Crouch s novel can be surmised as reading the novel non stop until completion This book was undoubtedly exceptional it was so good that it made Dark Matter which I loved and rated 455 stars felt like a practice novel so that Crouch has the skill to unleash the full capacity of his brain towards the creation of this cleverly crafted insanityTwo central characters drive the plot The first main character is Barry Sutton a cop that s investigating the mysterious phenomenon dubbed as False Memory Syndrome FMS a phenomenon that drives its victims insane with false memories of a life they never lived The other main character Helena Smith is a neuroscientist that understands the importance of memory she decides to dedicate her life to create a technology that could preserve any moment of the recipient s memories This is pretty much all I can say regarding the general premise Reviewing Crouch s book is not an easy task there s a huge limitation on how much of the plot I can talk about unless I risk spoiling something and I don t want that To avoid spoilers I will say this Recursion is a sci fi thriller about memories and how precious they are in defining humanity and their sense of identity Imbued inside this resonating theme was an addictive story about love loss ambition redemption and life Life is nothing how he expected it would be when he was young and living under the delusion that things could be controlled Nothing can be controlled Only endured When I started this book I knew I would be thoroughly engaged by it and Crouch exceeded my high expectations brilliantly Crouch outstandingly proved that he s super capable of writing a fast paced story that doesn t neglect crucial characterizations Dark Matter was thought provoking and this book held similar philosophical discussions about life and choices but honestly speaking Recursion resonated with me because I believe that Crouch has improved as an author his prose was extremely well polished and the characters were fleshed out I truly didn t expect this novel to be this evocative and large scale There were moments where I felt genuinely sad terrified and heart warmed by what the characters went through The poignant thought provoking passages made me reflect on life the gradual increase in stakes and scope that eventually became destructive and global as the story progressed fully stole my attention cover to cover I ve been having difficulties in my life it s almost as if this book appeared at the right timing to brighten my mood by teaching me how to think better moving forward I m truly grateful for it Life with a cheat code isn t life Our existence isn t something to be engineered or optimized for the avoidance of pain That s what it is to be human the beauty and the pain each meaningless without the other Recursion was relentlessly thrilling unpredictable and mind blowing Crouch s narrative was utterly unputdownable the harrowing events displayed were enormously impactful and I absolutely loved every moment of reading this vivid magnificence I can vouch with certainty that Recursion broke a new milestone for me by becoming the first sci fi standalone to be included in my favorites shelves with a full 55 stars rating Read this breathtaking novel as soon as you can Trust me you won t regret it SidenoteI heard Recursion is currently being planned for TV series adaptation by Netflix and I m so excited for itYou can order the book from Book Depository Free shipping You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions
