Teaser Tuesday - Blue Remembered Earth, by Alastair Reynolds

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!


Geoffrey and Sunday are each following the clues their grandmother left behind when she died.  While Geoffrey has returned to Africa, Sunday has traveled a bit farther to find the next clue in Eunice's riddle.

The Tease:
 "Cavernous and bright, the terminal could have been any shopping mall from Mombasa to the Moon.  Exos loitered to assist those struggling with the gravity, but no one was having any obvious difficulties.  Adverts jostled for attention, pushing services and products that were for the most part uniquely Martian."
 -Blue Remembered Earth, by Alastair Reynolds

What's your Tease?


  1. This one grabbed my attention. I do like a good space opera.

    Here's My Teaser

  2. I've never heard of this one before but I loved the teaser. Like Shelley said I do love a good story set in space.

    My Tuesday Teaser is here.

  3. Martian? I love it! Reminds me of Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein.
    My teaser is from LIES THAT BIND by Delinda McCann.
