Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.  Everyone is invited to 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!
  • Share the title and author as well so that others can add the book to their To Be Read list!

Alright, alright, this has been a slow reading week for me.  I am still reading Upload by Mark McClelland.  Check out the new teaser and synopsis below:

Nurania was not the only world Raymond had ever built.  As a child, he created many v-worlds, deleting them and starting over, again and again, refining his vision and his skills through trial error.  Page 174

Synopsis:  His criminal past catching up with him, a troubled young man seeks escape into digital utopia by uploading his consciousness into a computer – just as first love casts his life in a new light.  In this thrilling near-future science-fiction novel, Mark McClelland explores the immense potential of computer-based consciousness and the philosophical perils of simulated society.

  1. Sounds creative! Thanks for sharing…and here’s MY TUESDAY MEMES POST

  2. At first I thought you’d linked to the wrong TT 😉 We all have slow reading weeks sometimes though, hopefully it isn’t because the book is hard-going?

    • The story is good, however there are quite a bit of technical passages that I don’t quite grasp so have to really concentrate to understand. So yes, it is a bit of a hard read. I really like the premise, so I am still reading! ~Deanna

  3. Sounds interesting. Sci-Fi and techy stuff is hit or miss with me. Good teaser.

    Here’s mine:
