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!


Just a quick note - 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!  In this passage, Swan and Inspector Genette have traveled from Earth to Titan to meet with a secret group of individuals who are working together to discover who or what might be sabotaging planets and cities around the solar system.

The Tease:
 "It was in one of the famous Titanic sunsets that Swan saw Wahram, crossing the gallery deck to greet her and Inspector Genette.  She ran to him and embraced him, then let him go and looked at him, feeling shy.  But he gave her that brief smile of his, and she saw that all was well between them."

  4. Great teaser! I've been hearing a lot of good things about this novel, I think I will have to check it out now =)

    I've been paying close attention to the football portion of the Olympics (still recovering from the match yesterday) but otherwise have only been reading the news. But it's all good =)
