Can You Name This Story? (Part 12)

Another reader writes in with a story description looking for a title. Do any of our readers out there know the title of this story?

I’m not sure how old this is or when I even read it (it has to have been at least 15 years ago) but the story revolves around the main character either creating or working with the people who created a method of reading everyone’s mind at once. I think there were these boxes that the character put together and when you were in the box you could search out the thoughts and memories of anyone you wanted.

At the same time the main character’s daughter was going to a psychologist and through hypnosis “discovered” that she may have been molested by her father. I don’t want to spoil the ending of the book but the memory device plays a big part in resolving everything.

    I think you will find that the book you are after is ‘Factoring Humanity’ by Robert J. Sawyer

    Kyle’s right, it’s Factoring Humanity.

  3. Thank you! Wow published in 1999 – not as old as I thought it was for some reason…
