Recursion
by
Screenwriter and novelist Blake Crouch gets his first Goodreads Choice Award with this inventive and ambitious story on technology, time travel, and the essential nature of memory. The book’s decidedly weird science is actually grounded in recent laboratory research, which lends an eerie temporal echo to the proceedings. Also, Crouch suggests an oddly compelling explanation for that phenomenon we call déjà vu.
