Teaser Tuesday - Great North Road, by Peter F Hamilton

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!


I've finally finished reading Words of Radiance, by Brandon Sanderson (fantastic novel!), and I've switched gears from Fantasy to Sci-Fi, and have moved on to another door stopper - Great North Road, by Peter F Hamilton.  At 990 pages, it's not quite as large as Words of Radiance - but it's close!  Today, our Tease is from the opening paragraph of the book.

The Tease:

"As midnight approached, the wild neon colors of the borealis storm came shimmering through the soft snow falling gently across Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.  It was as if nature were partying along with the rest of the city, providing a jade-and-carmine light show far more elegant than any of the fireworks that had been bursting sporadically above the rooftops since Friday."
 - Great North Road, by Peter F Hamilton

What's your Tease?


  1. Great imagery.

  2. Love how descriptive the teaser is, I got an ARC of this one but I never got around to it, sounds like I should.
    Here's my Teaser Tuesday
