Memory makes reality.
That’s what New York City cop Barry Sutton is learning as he investigates the devastating phenomenon the media has dubbed False Memory Syndrome—a mysterious affliction that drives its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived.
Neuroscientist Helena Smith already understands the power of memory. It’s why she’s dedicated her life to creating a technology that will let us preserve our most precious moments of our pasts. If she succeeds, anyone will be able to re-experience a first kiss, the birth of a child, the final moment with a dying parent.
As Barry searches for the truth, he comes face-to-face with an opponent more terrifying than any disease—a force that attacks not just our minds but the very fabric of the past. And as its effects begin to unmake the world as we know it, only he and Helena, working together, will stand a chance at defeating it.
But how can they make a stand when reality itself is shifting and crumbling all around them?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow. Talk about a lot of adventure and suspense. You wake up one morning and realize that your life is not what you thought. Then you wake up again and again all with different stories of your life. Helena Smith is making a chair to help restore memory as her mom has alzheimers but it gets inpt the hands of the wrong people. Barry is a cop and these 2 end up meeting and trying to change outcomes. But when you go back in time it is the whole world that does, not just you.
At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book because it was a little slow and all of this scientific jargon was going on but it picked up and you start understanding what is going on.
