by Blake Crouch
Genre: Science Fiction
Our memories create our reality. So, when False Memory Syndrome starts popping up all over the US, New York City cop Barry Sutton starts digging for some answers.
False Memory Syndrome (FMS) drives its victims mad with memories of lives they’ve never lived, and it’s brought to Barry’s attention when he fails to prevent a suicide.
Helena is a scientist on the brink of discovering a way to preserve memories and use them for therapy with Alzheimer’s patients. As Barry searches for the truth behind FMS, he and Helena team up to stop an opponent that is much worse than any disease. They must fight against a plot to remake the world as we know it.
This Book is mindblowing and now I want to read every book Blake Crouch has ever written.
You know me, and I love my characters. This book does not disappoint when it comes to character development. Helena and Barry make a perfect team, even in the face of impossible odds. They are both rich characters on their own, but when they meet up and begin working together, the story immediately takes things up a notch.
I can’t say too much about this plot because I don’t want to spoil any part of this book for anyone. But Crouch has imagined a technology that takes his fictional world by storm. It’s positive uses are inestimable, but it also has crazy far-reaching consequences. I love books that force readers to ask themselves if we should do something just because we can?
This is one of those books that I wish I could read again for the first time. There are so many glass shattering moments that you just can’t re-experience again the same way.
Is it a Must Read?
Even if you aren’t a big fan of SciFi, I think you’ll like this book. It’s a difficult concept to grasp, but it’s an interesting one, and the story is totally worth it. You should read it.
