Teaser Tuesday - 2312, by Kim Stanley Robinson

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


Still reading this Science Fiction novel and really enjoying it! 

Just a quick note to you guys - I'm a total Olympic fan, and so right now I'm all about the games.  So things may be a little sparse around here for the next week or two.  Watching 12+ hours of coverage from London every day isn't leaving me a whole lot of time for sleeping or working, let alone reading and blogging!  But I won't be gone completely!  Is anyone else obsessed with the Olympics?

Anyway, here's this weeks' Tease!

The Tease:
 "As the Earth slowly receded below her, becoming the familiar blue-and-white ball, chunking space with its marbled glory, she listened to the Sanskrit lyrics bouncing in her ear.  She asked Pauline to translate one haunting turn in the melody; Pauline said, "Until there is peace, we will never be safe.""

What's your Tease?


  1. I heard many things about this book. How are you liking it?

    Btw, here's my teaser: http://vonniesreadingcorner.blogspot.com/2012/07/teaser-tuesdays-7.html

    1. I'm really enjoying it. Kim Stanley Robinson has the kind of imagination and sense of wonder that most people can only dream of having, and it shows in the story. It's a great read so far, I wish I had more time to devote to it right now.

  2. Don't know this one but I'm looking into it now.

  3. Never heard of this one, good teaser!


  4. Great teaser sounds like an awesome sci-fi novel. Thanks for sharing and visiting my teaser. =]

  5. Hmmm ... sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing!
