Barry Sutton is a detective who attempted to save a woman from killing herself – he wasn’t able to save her, but he got curious about why she killed herself. She was said to have FMS (False Memory Syndrome), a known disease in Manhattan. Someone with FMS suddenly wakes up with a new set of memories – like having another life. Most people with FMS become suicidal because they are no longer sure what’s real and not.

As Barry dug into the woman he tried to save – he ended up in a hotel. He lost consciousness, and when he woke up, he was on a chair, and the man was with him. He asked him to describe the day his daughter, Megan, died. He told the memory, and it suddenly seemed so vivid. The next thing he knew, he was already in that memory, and he could stop Megan from getting hit by a truck. A man he met from the hotel showed up and told him that he was given a gift. He could go back in time, and this is now his reality. A new timeline has been created – he gets to live his life again. Continue reading Recursion by Blake Crouch (Book Summary)
