MAY Selection during online learning: Recursion by Blake Crouch
Discussion May 20 @ 1pm during flex via Google Meet
See previous book club selections at the book club blog here.
WHY WE CHOSE IT: For those of you who loved Life After Life, Recursion takes another angle on reliving the past through a Sci-Fi adventure that involves quantum physics, sensory deprivation tanks, and one character trying desperately to undo her greatest scientific achievement--all for the good of humanity...
WHERE CAN YOU GET IT:
SYNOPSIS: At first, it looks like a disease. An epidemic that spreads through no known means, driving its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived. But the force that’s sweeping the world is no pathogen. It’s just the first shock wave, unleashed by a stunning discovery—and what’s in jeopardy is not our minds but the very fabric of time itself.
In New York City, Detective Barry Sutton is closing in on the truth—and in a remote laboratory, neuroscientist Helena Smith is unaware that she alone holds the key to this mystery . . . and the tools for fighting back.
Together, Barry and Helena will have to confront their enemy—before they, and the world, are trapped in a loop of ever-growing chaos.
