Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teaser: The Resurrectionist – By Jack O’Connell (ISBN: 978-156512-678-7)
Synopsis: (Taken From Amazon)
The Resurrectionist is a wild ride into a territory where nothing is as it appears. Part classic noir thriller, part fabulist fable, it is the story of Sweeney and his comatose son, Danny. Hoping for a miracle, Sweeney has brought Danny to the fortresslike Peck Clinic, whose doctors claim to have “resurrected” patients who were similarly lost in the void. but the real cure for his son’s condition may lie in Limbo, a comic book world beloved by Danny before he slipped into a coma.
O’Connell has crafted a spellbinding novel about stories and what they can do for and to those who create them and those who consume them. About the nature of consciousness and the power of the unknown. And, ultimately, about forgiveness and the depth of our need to extend it and receive it.
“The boys won’t be back till sometime tomorrow,” Buzz said. “By then, without any water and with all that soot and shit in you lungs and throat, you won’t sound like much more than a bird that got stuck in the stack somewhere.” pg. 90
I am on page 101 and no where near half way done after a week of reading. It’s good – but I think just maybe not my style. I am going to continue reading it as much as possible today and tonight and then probably have to put it down by tomorrow, as I will be starting a read-a-long on Shiver. I may or may not pick it back up when Shiver is finished. I guess we’ll see how I feel at the end of tonight!
