Teaser Tuesday - Jan 7

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
It wasn't just my eyes that had gone. It was all my bloody senses.
A suitably dramatic start to the New Year! Chris Beckett's Dark Eden, the Guardian review describes it as theologically nuanced science fiction! It's recently won the Arthur C Clarke award, a dark vision of the future, or perhaps the past. Around 25% of the way through and I'm enjoying it - I'm also re-reading David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas and it was interesting to read the far future section of that work set alongside Beckett's writing. I believe there will be a sequel to Dark Eden published later this year.

Eek...must be scary and confusing when you lose your senses.

Though not as scary as it sounds - if that doesn't give away too much!
