The Friday 56: Revelation Space


Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

SORRY EVERYONE! I had my sister and nephew over today and completely forgot about the F56! This week's is from Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds. Haven't read it yet but it looks REALLY good.
From the back:
Nine hundred thousand years ago, something annihilated the Amarantin civilization just as it was on the verge of discovering space flight. Now one scientist, Dan Sylveste, will stop at nothing to solve the Amarantin riddle before ancient history repeats itself. With no other resources at his disposal, Sylveste forges a dangerous alliance with the cyborg crew of the starship Nostalgia for Infinity. But as he closes in on the secret, a killer closes in on him. Because the Amarantin were destroyed for a reason - and if that reason is uncovered, the universe (and reality itself) could be irrevocably altered...

F56:

"You did well," Tarachi said, no pain showing in his voice. He reached out with one hand to steady himself against the wall.
