CORDYCEPS: Too clever for their own good - Benedict_SC

Posted on May 10, 2016 by Andrew

3 wakes up in a hospital bed with no memory of who he is or why he’s here. Does 3 overcome the temptation of reading a document marked “Don’t read, this is not a joke” or does he follow his curiosty?

“But I can’t tell you, and I can’t tell you why I can’t tell you.” “Can you tell me… why you can’t tell me why you can’t tell me?” She sighed in exasperation. “No, and it goes all the way down. Trust me.”

I read this in one sitting. It’s a great little psychological thriller. How do you deal with something that causes itself if you think about it? This novel is very self contained. By the end you know the main details of the universe you’re in.
