Ballarat’s February Girly Book Club
Oscar's Hotel & Cafe Bar, 18 Doveton St S, Ballarat Central VIC 3350, Australia
Please note: The venue The Lost Ones will be closed for renovation, so we’ll be meeting at Oscar’s. The booking is from 7pm to allow time to order food or a yummy dessert if you’re wanting a bit more than just a drink.
Well ladies, we’re now officially into the new year and we want to help you to achieve your 2020 reading goals, so! Pick up a copy of our February GBC title, Recursion, by Blake Crouch
That’s what NYC 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.
That’s what neuroscientist Helena Smith believes. It’s why she’s dedicated her life to creating a technology that will let us preserve our most precious memories. 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.
