TUESDAY TEASER

This fun meme, begun by The Purple Booker, which I found on Brainfluff, some time ago asks that the reader find a sentence or two at random from something they are reading now and copy those lines, accompanied by the title of the book and the author’s name. The object of this little “game” is to tease other readers to add your book to their TBR lists.

Mine today is from Beth Revis’s Across the Universe:

A young woman and her parents are being cyro frozen for travel to Mars. The father has insisted she wait and watch both parents go through the process first, so she can decide whether she wants to go through with it or not. Just as she is being frozen, she has these thoughts, “But if I’m ice, how am I conscious? I was supposed to be asleep. I was supposed to forget about Jason and life on Earth for three hundred and one years. People have been cyro frozen before me, and none of them were conscious. If the mind is frozen, how can it be awake or aware”?

I am anxious to read further to see if she will be mindful through three hundred years of physical “sleep,” or if things will be different when she awakens if she does sleep.  The book jacket hints that someone has tried to murder her while she slept, but who? and why? Would she have enough consciousness (judging from her speech above) to know who that person was? This book promises a great deal of adventure and an excellent mystery.
