Recursion (Blake Crouch)

I’d previously read Dark Matter by Blake Crouch and thoroughly enjoyed it. So, on that very personal recommendation, I decided to read Recursion. I wasn’t disappointed.

What can I say about this mind-bending book without giving anything away? It’s a breathless, sci-fi thriller with so many twist and turns it often left my head spinning. After reluctantly putting the book down at bedtime I would settle down trying to work it out, often struggling to fully comprehend all the existential and philosophical questions raised. As, you’ve probably guessed, it was hard to put down.

Recursion takes mind-twisting premises and embeds them in a deeply emotional story about time and loss and grief and most of all, the glory of the human heart. Gregg Hurwitz

Yes, it’s sci-fi, but don’t let that put you off if it’s not your thing, it’s far bigger than one genre. It’s about life and love, memories and grief, relationships and commitment. It’s about what it means to be human, to live and love, and how circumstances and events affect us.

Note: I understand that both of the books are being made into movies, but I would recommend you read them first rather than waiting for them on the big screen.
