"Blake Crouch is AMAZING! Another book about time and how it's just a construct and really are we living in the past, present and future at the same time? This is blow-your-mind science and fiction all meshed together. How would the world use the gift of memories? Would we manipulate them? Of course we would! This story is thrilling, disturbing, amazing!" — Julie
