Hi All:

These are the discussion questions:

BTP Book Club: Recursion by Blake Crouch

1. Were you immediately engaged with the book, or did it take you a while?
2. What is the role of science in this novel?
3. What did you think of Helena’s work-life balance?
4. Imagine that the scientific elements of Recursion were removed, and the memory chair was replaced by, for instance, an ancient magical pool that could send bathers back in time. How would the meaning of the narrative change?
5. Name some of the nods to current events.
6. Do you think Helena’s tunnel vision about building the chair blinds her to its potential for evil? Or is she aware of all of its capabilities – both good and bad?
7. Does the view of time presented in the book make you think differently about déjà vu or memories in general? How so?
8. Is the ending satisfying? Has the book changed you? Have you learned something?
