“You know how to live in a body, but not how to be one.” ——————————— What an unusual story. I’m not quite sure what to think of what I just read. It was super weird and yet completely absorbing.

Blake Crouch does it again! He and Andy Weir are my go-to sci-fi authors that always promise me a thrill ride along with an education.
