Faller by Will McIntosh. Published by St. Martin’s

In this unusual post apocalyptic novel, readers meet two narrators. First is a man who wakes up with no memory of who he is, where he is or even how to read. And he’s not alone, those who are left cannot even put names to everyday objects. All he has in his pocket are a photograph of himself and an unknown woman, a toy soldier and a map written in blood, which he decides to follow. The second narrative is that of scientist Peter, who’s had some success at replicating tissue for organ transplants. As the world teeters on the brink of war, Peter’s boss’s wife contracts a mysterious and fatal disease sweeping the globe. She begs Peter to replicate her before she dies, and while he’s had some success with tiny mammals, how will it work with a human beings? The machine Peter uses may work….or it may cause complete and utter chaos, even destroy the world. This novel is incredibly complex, but totally worth it
