Teaser Tuesday once more




Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Water has its own kind of darkness, its endless equivalence. Brine too needs its badges of state. It sinks, this net, silently and stressfully, the banner for an army of armies.
Oops that's three sentences from Lawrence Norfolk's The Pope's Rhinoceros. Picked this up at a charity shop and although second hand it appears unread. 100 pages in and I'm beginning to see that it could be infuriating but I'm practically breathing in the North Sea. This at 700+ pages is a long read but 16th century Eaurope has always fascinated me, there's also an interesting link with my Teaser of Last Week!
