I liked Dark Matter so much that I could barely wait to borrow Recursion from my local library. Although it took me a little longer to get into this bok, I did like it just as much as Dark Matter. I really like how Blake is able to flawlessly mix speculative sci-fi with thriller and make me care for the characters that he has created.
This book had a feeling of winding down somewhere near the middle and just when I thought the story would be wrapping up it got even better; I should have known the government would be getting involved in the storyline sooner than later for the amazing memory-traveling technology that is Recursion. Recursion took a heartbreaking turn at the end that makes this story have a romantic twist like no other book I’ve read- I didn’t realize how difficult it was going to be to read the same (non) ending over and over again.
It sounds confusing but once you read the story it’s not so bad. There’s so much I want to say about what happens but I don’t want to spoil it, not even a little since it was such a page-turner. I really enjoyed another book by Mr. Crouch that I had trouble putting down.
