Sci-Fi Month - The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Total Recall by Piers Anthony

 



On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 



Happy Friday everyone!  In honor of Sci-Fi Month 2020 this week I'm spotlighting one of my Sci-Fi Month reads, Total Recall by Piers Anthony.  I had no idea that there was a novelization of the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie Total Recall before I just happened to find this at a library book sale ages ago.  From what I've heard of it, it looks like that the author was working with a early version of the script because this is a bit different.  I'm going to have to rewatch the movie soon.

Beginning:

Two moons hung in the dark red sky.

56:

If this worked, life would continue much as before.  If it didn't they might all be dead before they realized it.


Are you taking part in Sci-Fi Month this year?  What are you reading this weekend?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  1. I've never heard of Sci-Fi Month, but I've watched a lot of sci-fi so maybe it'd fit me! I'll have to try it out next year.

  3. Piers Anthony is known for his humorous novels, so I'm surprised to find out he wrote the source material for the movie, which isn't that funny!

    1. You know, I think this is the first thing I've read by him actually. I'll have to change that.

    1. It's the novelization of the movie - and it's like he's working with a slightly earlier version of the script from what I can remember of the movie.
