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!
Replay by Ken Grimwood is one of my all-time favourite books, so it was a perfect choice for this year's ReReadathon. I love the concept of the book - a man dies suddenly only to wake up 25 years earlier and relive his life over again. Then he dies again. And lives again. And dies again, and lives again, and ... well, you get the picture! I love the idea of getting to do your life over again - what would you do different? What would stay the same? Would you keep the same friends or dump them? Would you have the same career or go for something completely different? (For the record, I would do EVERYTHING different if I had the chance to do it all over again. Every-flippin'-thing.)
Anyway, here are my teasers from page 142:
"And then you died," Jeff said gently.
"Yes. I died, again. And was fourteen years old again, and totally helpless to change a goddmaned thing."
